The IDEAL 61-405 Split Jaw Meter is a CAT III auto ranging true root mean square (TRMS) digital fork meter that measures up to 200 Amps AC between the forks. It measures up to 600V AC and DC, continuity, resistance, capacitance, and diodes via test-leads (included) and detects the presence of voltage between 40V to 600V via a non-contact sensor in the tip of the right fork. The large display can be backlit, and a built-in flashlight can be illuminated when working in poor or zero lighting conditions. 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 back of the meter has a built-in two position dual probe holder; the lower position allows for probe storage, the higher position allows for testing or measurement holding the meter and secured probe in one hand and the second probe in the other hand, or for both probes to be secured in the tip while conducting measurements. 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. 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 and storage.
