The Amprobe 34XR-A digital multimeter with included temperature probe is a true RMS (root mean square) sensing, auto- or manual-ranging meter for measuring current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, and duty cycles in electrical testing and maintenance applications. The meter comes with a set of detachable test leads and two alligator clips for measuring alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) to 10 amp, AC voltage to 750 volts (V), DC voltage to 1,000V, resistance to 40 megaohms, capacitance to 4,000 microfarads, frequency to 1 megahertz (MHz), and duty cycles to 90%. The meter comes with a K-type thermocouple probe and adaptor plug for measuring temperature. The 4,000 microfarad capacitance rating is for testing run/start capacitors on motors. A liquid crystal display (LCD) shows readings both in digits and on a 41-segment bar graph. The display is backlit for visibility in low light. The maximum or minimum reading mode displays the highest or lowest reading in a session to track a sudden increase or decrease in readings. An audible continuity sensor confirms that the circuit conducts electricity, and a diode test detects whether the circuit's diodes work properly. The hold function keeps a reading on the display, even after the meter is disconnected. An auto power-off mode turns off the unit after 30 minutes of non-use to conserve battery life, and a low-battery indicator signals when the meter's batteries need to be replaced.
This true RMS (root mean square) sensing meter provides accurate readings when measuring linear loads, such as standard induction motors and incandescent lights, where the current or voltage has a sinusoidal waveform, or non-linear loads, such as electronic devices or motors, where the current or voltage has a sinusoidal non-sinusoidal waveform. Two ranging modes (auto or manual) offer a range of operator control when taking readings. When turned on, the meter is in auto-ranging mode and automatically selects the correct operating range for the property being measured. It can be switched to manual-ranging mode, which allows the operator to choose the appropriate operating range. The meter has a 4,000-count resolution, meaning it can display up to 3,999 units (3-3/4 digits) before the operating range needs to be changed. It meets International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) safety standard 61010 and is certified for category II installations up to 1,000V (which covers large household appliances and devices connected to a fixed power supply, such as refrigerators and air conditioners), and category III installations up to 600V (which covers items used with enclosed building circuit installations, such as service panel parts, branch circuits, and fixed installations that are connected directly to a building's AC power supply). The meter comes with a magnetic strap that can be used to hang the meter on metal doors or fixtures.

Multimeters are electrical test meters that measure multiple properties of an electrical circuit, such as current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, and continuity. Available in handheld or benchtop models, multimeters diagnose electrical problems in electrical equipment, wiring, and power supplies. A variety of probes, clamps, and leads can be used to connect the meter to a circuit or device. Multimeters display information either in analog or digital form. Factors that influence meter choice include the electrical properties to be measured, the anticipated range of results, and the desired level of protection against transient voltages. Safety ratings are based on the International Electrotechnical Commission's (IEC) standards for low-voltage test equipment. IEC 61010 delineates four overvoltage installation categories. In general, a meter with a category IV rating will provide more protection against transient voltages than a meter with a lower category rating.
Amprobe manufactures electrical testing equipment for commercial, industrial, and home use. The company was founded in 1948 and is headquartered in Everett, WA.
What’s in the Box?
Very usable and has many features in one portable unit. I bought it after I sow EEVBLOG review and was not disappointed.Published 10 days ago by AlfaGulf
This is a great DMM. It was probably more than I needed, but it's nice to know that I can trouble shoot any problem around the house with this meter.Published 4 months ago by Russell Banks
I truly like this tester, my only complaint is that they are EXTREMELY fragilePublished 9 months ago by James R Fox
This is a very nice meter. I use it on my bench for hobby projects and around the house when needed. Great price and a very useful meter.Published 9 months ago by Fred
After a lot of research this unit is the best bang for your buck! Love all it's features and capabilities it's one in sure I'll have for years. Read morePublished 11 months ago by eurokid
I have had this meter for 3 years now.
I have used it around the house when working on a switch, installing a wall sconce, adding a outlet, etc etc. Read more
