1000A Clamp Meter and IR Thermometer

Extech Instruments announces its new EX840, its first-ever 1000A CAT IV Clamp Meter with built-in Infrared Thermometer. Ideal for industrial applications, the full-size 1000A clamp meter features a patented, integrated IR thermometer and rugged, double-molded housing.

The EX840 provides non-contact IR temperature measurements with a laser pointer, and the product's functions include AC/DC voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode, and continuity. The EX840 captures true RMS Current and Voltage measurements, and peak hold captures inrush currents and transients. The EX840 features a bright 4-digit, 4000 count backlit display and has as a 1.7" (43mm) jaw opening for conductors up to 750MCM or two 500MCM. In addition to the multimeter's user-selectable Auto Power Off feature, the EX840 also includes data hold and min/max, and autoranging with a manual range button.

The EX840 comes complete with an 8-piece professional test lead set, a 9v battery, Type K probe (-4 to 482°F/-20 to 250ºC), and a belt holster.
