The IDEAL 61-327 Digital Multi Meter is a CAT III 600 rated manual range digital multi meter. It measures up to 600V AC and DC, resistance, continuity, diodes and tests batteries via test-leads (included). It's display can be backlit. The unit uses an illuminated red LED in the center of the meter and emits audible tones to notify when voltage is above 30 volts, and when continuity is detected. The rubber boot has two probe storage points, has built-in probe tip holders to allow measurements while holding the meter in one hand and the second lead in the other hand. The meter has a hanging strap mount (compatible with all other IDEAL meters with this feature) that allows for a hanging strap (sold separately) to be attached to the meter so it can be hung from a nail, screw or magnetic surface. A rugged over molding enhances grip and drop protection. This meter features a HOLD and selectable Auto Power Off functions. The meter comes with 3 1.5V AAA Batteries and an easy open, fully accessible storage pouch with a belt loop that allows for meter, probes and thermocouple storage.

More than 100 years ago, Ideal Tools got their start making tools with the vision of making tools that were more valuable than their sale price. Ideal has continued to make tools with this mindset and as a result, their tools were used in some big projects, namely the first expeditions to the South Pole and even the moon. Even with great achievements like these under their belts, Ideal has stayed true to their values as a family-owned business and have gone to great lengths to ensure their tools are made in the USA and that no corners are cut. Ideal Tools are used by electricians and other tradesmen thus ensuring that quality tools finish the job.
