Electrical testing is made easy thanks to this unique new multimeter

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Multimeters are used for a variety of applications, whether it is measuring supply voltage inside an electric cabinet, on a rooftop, or within a heat pump. While there are a number of other ways a multimeter can provide crucial measurements, it is crucial all applications are taken into account to design the perfect instrument.


Automatic measurement makes testing easy

The New range of multimeters from testo (the testo 760 range) take automatic measurement  to the next level. Thanks to their unique and innovative design they are able to recognise the required measurement. Based on the electrical sockets and the test leads being used the multimeter will detect whether it needs to switch to current or voltage measurement mode.

For example, say you were testing for current, and attempted to switch to voltage, the multimeter would alert you immediately, thus preventing the fuses from blowing and any damage to the equipment. Another advantage is the 'Auto Power Off' feature which will help to prolong the instrument's battery life.

Large illuminated sceen for any situation

The testo 760 features an illuminated screen, and therefore provides clear and easy to read results at all times. The multimeter also offers one of the largest displays on the market, allowing you to view both voltage and current alongside the frequency. Some of its early users have described this feature as 'absolutely ideal'.

The robust design of the multimeter also complements dust and water-protection up to IP 64 rating. In fact, the multimeter offers one of the largest displays on the market, allowing you to view both voltage and current alongside the frequency.



Perfect multimeter for any professional

As mentioned before there are 3 versions in the testo multimeter range, and here are some of the advantes of each model:

  • The testo 760-1 is the standard version, not hugely complex but suitable for the majority of daily electrical measurements.
  • The testo 760-2 has a larger current measurement range than the 760-1, as well as a TRMS function (true root mean square measurement) and a low-pass filter.
  • The testo 760-3 has all the advantages of the 760-2 plus a higher measurement range for capacitance, frequency, and has a voltage range of up to 1,000 V.
