New Digital Light Meter from IDEAL Industries, Inc. Combines Accuracy with Value

SYCAMORE, IL - The new IDEAL Digital Light Meter (61-686) precisely measures incandescent, fluorescent, metal halide, high-pressure sodium and halogen lamp output, yet carries an MSRP of only $139 (U.S.), or about 25% less than competitive light meters with similar feature-sets.

The meter is extremely easy to use. Simply place its remote sensor in the area to be measured, press the "on" button and the light level will appear on the LCD read-out. Values can be saved on the LCD by pressing the Data Hold button or the Max Hold button to capture the maximum value.

Hard-to-reach areas are no problem thanks to the meter's remote sensor with 1.5 meter cable. When finished, the compact meter easily slips into a pocket or the provided tool tote. The meter is shipped with a standard 9V battery.
