Klein Tools is delighted to announce that their MM500A Auto-Ranging Multi-Meter has won the award for Innovative Test & Measurement Product of the Year at this year’s Electrical Industry Awards.
Launched in response to requests from the industry for meters that stand up to tough environments, the MM500A is a user-friendly tool for verifying or troubleshooting electrical circuits safely and reliably. With a totally sealed IP67 dust and waterproof rated case, 3 metre drop protection and one of the highest safety ratings – CAT IV (600V), the MM500A is tougher than the average meter in the field today.
Malcolm Duncan, Managing Director says: “This is the first award for Klein Tools since the launch into the UK market in January and we are delighted that it comes from the trades longest running and most respected event.
“This is a real achievement because it recognises the MM500A as a breakthrough product and Klein Tools as a firm contender in the UK market. We look forward to continuing to work with the industry to launch products which are designed with the user in mind.”
Measuring up to 750v, the MM500A automatically detects AC or DC voltage and includes both visual and audible continuity indicators. In addition, it has a number of features which have been designed specifically for the busy professional. This includes, self-storing leads which are perfectly spaced for quick measurements of tamperproof outlets and an Auto-Hold function which automatically locks readings on the display when measuring in hard to access areas.
Other features of the MM500A include a 4000 count LCD display, low battery indicator, and auto-power off. For ease of use the meter uses AAA batteries and includes a battery door with captive screws to eliminate lost fasteners.
