Press Release Summary:
Clamp-type Model AC71 measures ac/dc volts, resistance, and continuity. AutoTect senses what type of measurement is being made when test leads are placed across measurement point. With no knob to turn, meter displays measured value along with associated unit icon. AutoTect employs lower input impedance to help determine ghost voltage or hard connection. Backlight sensor recognizes if ambient light is insufficient and turns on bright blue backlight for viewing of digital display.

Meterman Debuts AC71 Digital Clamp Multimeter with AutoTect® for Electrical and HVAC/R Markets
Complete multimeter measures ac/dc volts, resistance and continuity plus ac current
EVERETT, WA - Meterman Test Tools, a leading brand of innovative test tools created for electrical and HVAC technicians, is launching the AC71 clamp-style digital multimeters (DMM). The clamp meter employs two unique features: AutoTect(TM) plus an automatic backlight.
The AutoTect feature automatically senses what type of measurement is being made when test leads are placed across a measurement point. With no knob to turn, the meter automatically senses what is being tested and displays the measured value along with the associated unit icon. AutoTect also employs a lower input impedance to help determine if voltage is leaking (ghost voltage) or if there is a hard connection. Any possible ghost voltage will be eliminated by the lower input impedance.
An automatic backlight sensor recognizes when ambient light is insufficient and turns on a bright blue backlight for easy viewing of the digital display. With one-button control, the AC71 measures ac current to 600 A, ac volts to 750 V, and dc volts to 1000 V. In addition to the resistance and continuity beeper, the meter features Data Hold and is rated to CAT II 1000 V. The US MSRP is: $99.95.
