The waterproof Model MX 51EX is an intrinsically safe digital multimeter suitable for use in dangerous or explosive atmospheres, says the manufacturer. Considered a passive device without inductive or capacitive issues often problematic in such environments, the meter meets EN 50-014 and EN 50-020 standards, as well as temperature class T6, the company says. The 5,000-count meter measures such things as ac and dc volts, resistance, continuity, and logic level, and performs diode tests. It provides min/max functions with a memory to store up to five values and is IP66 rated, says the company.
