According to Jerry Blakeley, President of Extech Instruments, by offering one meter that functions in the place of five, the EX623 5-in-1 clamp meter delivers both high functionality and value for customers.
Extech Instruments’ 5-in-1 clamp meter is designed for HVAC/R and electrical professionals in residential, commercial, institutional and industrial settings. The EX623 5-in-1 clamp meter accurately measures AC and DC current, voltage, and temperatures for troubleshooting both new installations and preventive/ongoing maintenance and repairs.
The 5-in-1 clamp meter offers the convenience and versatility of 5 meters in one instrument such as:
- AC/DC clamp meter
- Advanced, true RMS multimeter
- Infrared thermometer (Extech-patented)
- Non-contact voltage detector
- Dual Type-K thermometer
Infrared thermometer and laser pointer of the EX623 5-in-1 clamp meters make temperature readings simpler and safer. Having two Type K thermocouple inputs make superheat and sub-cooling temperature measurements easier to perform. The DC microamp function is suitable for flame rod current measurements and the EX623 5-in-1 clamp meters’ generous 36mm jaw opening handles conductors up to 500MCM.
The Extech Instruments’ EX623 clamp meter offers users a valuable combination of 5-in1 convenience, a rugged double-moulded housing, competitive pricing, top-spec capabilities, and less toolbelt/toolbox clutter.
