The IDEAL 61-357 Digital Multi Meter is a CAT IV 600 CAT III 1000V rated auto ranging true root mean square (TRMS) digital multi meter that measures up to 10 Amps AC and DC current via the test leads in series with the load. It measures up to 1000V AC and DC, LoZ (low impedance) AC V, frequency, resistance, continuity, capacitance, and diodes via test-leads (included) and measures temperature (⁰F/⁰C) via a K-Type thermocouple (included). It's capable of detecting the presence of voltage between 40V to 600V via a non-contact sensor in the top center of the meter. It's display features a digital readout and also an analog bargraph representation and 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, when continuity is detected and when the NCV senses voltage within its set range. 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. An industrial grade over molding enhances grip and drop protection. This meter features HOLD, MIN/MAX, Relative, Range, 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.
Provides True RMS AC voltage and current for accurate measurements on non-linear signals
Measures AC/DC Current, AC/DC Voltage, Lo Z, frequency, resistance, continuity, capacitance, diodes, temperature and senses AC voltage.
Built-in probe tip holder and hanging strap clip allows safer, easier measurement
Large easy to read l backlit display, allows for safer/faster work in poorly lit environments
Industrial design of removeable rubber boot enhances gripping and allows the meter to withstand a 6.6-foot (2 m) drop

Combined LCD Digital readout and analog bar graph display.
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.
