Press Release Summary:
With selectable auto-/manual-ranging, handheld Model RC200 measures AC/DC voltage, capacitance, resistance, continuity, and diode function in circuit. User squeezes tweezers around surface mount component or test point for automatic component identification and testing. Adjustment dial allows user to optimize tweezers' spacing. For standard electronic and electrical testing, tweezer tips can be removed and swapped with test leads adaptor for voltage readings up to 600 V.
Original Press Release:
New Extech RC200 Tweezer Multimeter
Expands Versatility with Test Leads Adaptor
(Waltham, MA, USA) Extech Instruments (www.extech.com/instruments), makers of the best handheld test and measurement tools, announced the new RC200 Tweezer Multimeter which permits tweezer-style testing of small, SMD components as well as standard electronic and electrical testing using easy-to-swap test leads.
The Extech RC200 is a small, hand-held tool with selectable auto-/manual-ranging used to measure AC/DC voltage, capacitance, resistance, continuity, and diode function in circuit. For one-hand operation, squeeze the tweezers around a surface mount component or test point for automatic component identification and testing. For ease of use, an adjustment dial allows the user to optimize the tweezers' spacing. Unlike similar tweezers-style meters, the RC200 adds versatility with tweezer tips that can be removed and swapped with a test leads adaptor for voltage readings up to 600V.
The lightweight, ergonomic RC200 is ideal for users who typically debug PCBs, test onboard components, sort loose SMD components (as small as 0201 case type), and other electrical measurements demanding precision access. Plus, swappable test leads extend the range of electrical and electronic testing applications.
The Extech RC200 includes test leads, SMD tweezers, protective cover, carrying case, and batteries. The meter is Category III rated to 600V and CE approved. Suggested retail price is $69.99.
The Extech RC200 Tweezer Multimeter is available now from stocking distributors. To learn more about the RC200, or to find a distributor, please visit http://www.extech.com/instruments.
