Power measurement: Portable hand-held multimeters measure variety of electrical, physical quantities

Test equipment: AEMC introduces the new Digital Multimeter Models 5212, 5215 & 5217. These portable hand-held multimeters measure a variety of electrical and physical quantities including voltage (AC and DC), resistance, capacitance, frequency and temperature. These instruments can also perform continuity checks, voltage detection and diode testing (including forward bias voltage). Measurement features include Auto Range mode, which enables the instrument to select the best range for the input detected, and a Data HOLD function. These instruments are rugged and simple to use and rated to 600V CAT III.

• True RMS (TRMS)
• Non-Contact Voltage detection
• Low input impedance voltage measurement
(VLowZ) to help prevent "ghost" voltage from
affecting the measurement
• HOLD function
• MAX/MIN function displays the maximum and
minimum readings detected during a measurement
• Δ REL compares measurements to a user selected
reference value.
• Auto/Manual range selection
• Backlight and flashlight
• Multiple mounting options (stand, slot, magnet)
• Sleep Mode for extending battery life

• Voltage (AC and DC)
• Current (AC and DC)
• Resistance
• Diode test
• Continuity check
• Capacitance
• Temperature measurement (Model 5217

• Measurement of electrical values including: voltage, resistance and capacitance
• Measurement of Frequency (Hz) and duty cycle (Model 5217)
• Temperature measurement oC and oF (Model 5217)
• Continuity checking
• Diode testing
• Maximum, minimum and maximum-minimum value
detection for a measurement session (Models 5215
& 5217)
• Non-contact detection of network voltage
