Klein Tools’ MM500 auto ranging multimeter was named Multimeter of the Year by the editors of online publication Tools in Action.

“The MM500 auto ranging meter from Klein is one of the best tools of the year that we have reviewed,” said Dan Maxey, senior editor and co-founder of Tools in Action. “It is easy to use and tough. Basically it’s a great all around voltage multimeter for anyone.”

Bruce Kuhn, product manager at Klein Tools, said the user-friendly, durable multimeter — which measures up to 750 volts AC and DC — was created to survive tough conditions.

“We wanted to create a user-friendly yet tough multimeter that can handle the rigors of the job site environment,” said Bruce Kuhn, product manager at Klein Tools. “The MM500 auto-ranging multimeter encompasses numerous features, a well-thought-out design, an IP67 durability rating and a CAT IV safety rating, all for under $60.”
