Extech Intros Compact Versatile Clamp Meters
Compact clamp meter.
Nashua, NH — Extech Instruments has introduced its versatile MA430 Series of professional digital clamp meters. The new instruments have a compact size that enables measurements in tight locations. The affordable meters consist of the MA430 400A AC clamp meter, the MA430T True RMS AC clamp meter, and the MA435T True RMS AC/DC model with capacitance, frequency and temperature measurement functionality.

Multimeter functions are available on all models, and they all provide a clear backlit LCD display. Other features include: a built-in non-contact voltage detector with LED alert; CAT III-600V safety rating; 1.2-in. (30mm) jaw size for conductors up to 350MCM; data hold function; low battery indication; auto power off. Compact, ergonomic, and built for safety these affordable new clamp meters are easy to hold. The large, illuminated four-digit readout display is easy to see in poorly lit work areas, and the thumb-dial selector is ergonomically placed for convenient, one-hand operation. Another safety feature built into the new MA430 series meters is the non-contact voltage (NCV) detector. Eliminating the need for a separate tester, the NCV detector quickly identifies the presence of voltage on live wires and alerts the user with a red LED indicator. The MA430/MA430T meters' measurement functions provided are AC current, AC/DC voltage, resistance, diode test, continuity and non-contact voltage detection.

The MA435T measures AC/DC current, AC/DC voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode test, duty cycle, continuity, thermocouple temperature and non-contact voltage detection. The new clamp meters are CAT III 600V-rated and CE, ETL approved. Each meter comes complete with test leads, general purpose Type K bead wire temperature probe (for MA435T only), 9V battery, and soft case.
