Product Description

Style: AM-510 W/ NIST Certificate

The am-510 commercial/residential Multimeter is designed for light commercial and advanced residential applications. It is an Auto- or manual-ranging meter for measuring current, Voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, microamps, and duty cycles in commercial, home repair, automotive and electrical testing applications. It comes with non-contact Voltage detection, built-in flash light, bright backlit display and Auto power-off feature. The am-510 measures alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) to 10 amps, AC Voltage and DC Voltage to 600 volts (V), resistance to 40 megaohms, capacitance to 100 microfarads, frequency to 10 megahertz (MHz), micro current to 4,000 microamps, and duty cycles to 99 percent . The battery Test feature checks the amount of charge remaining in standard 1.5V and 9V batteries. The microamp reading identifies current changes in flame detector applications. The backlit liquid crystal display (LCD) is visible in low light. The relative zero mode stores a reading in Memory to use as a zero point for subsequent readings, allowing for quick Comparison of readings. The hold function keeps a reading on the display, even after the meter is disconnected. Audible continuity confirms that the circuit is capable of conducting electricity and the diode Test detects whether the circuit's diodes work properly. An Auto power-off mode turns off the unit after 30 minutes of non-use to conserve the battery, and a low-battery indicator signals when the meter's batteries need to be replaced. The back of the meter has a tilt stand that allows the meter to be propped on a surface for hands-free use. A probe holder on the Body of the meter stores probes when not in use. It meets international electro technical commission (IEC) Safety standard 61010 and is certified for category III installations up to 600V. The am-510 comes with a set of detachable Test leads.

Style Name: AM-510: Residential DMM Verified Purchase
The good.. meter is solid and very easy to use. Great value for the money.

The bad.. god forbid you make a mistake and blow a fuse. Cannot find replacement fuses for this meter anywhere. I called Amprobe and sat on hold for over a half hour inquiring on how I can get a replacement 660v fuse. I finally gave up and just hung up. I mean how can the consumer be expected to locate the fuse if the manufacturer can't. Should I be able to resolve this I will update the review.
No contact detection does not work on receptacles.

EDIT- I emailed the company a week ago (now 12 days) about the fuses and still no email response. HORRIBLE customer service. Second email has been sent.

OK finally have the fuse replacement part numbers.. FP 500 (.5 amp) and FP 540 (10 amp). The guy that helped me today in customer service was very nice. It did take them a good hour to track down the fuse numbers, but he got back to me promptly.

Style Name: AM-570: TRMS Industrial DMM Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This multimeter is made for professionals in the field. I am impressed with the design of the device, especially for a sub-$100 product with True RMS, Cat III and Cat IV.

I've uploaded 10 photos that I recommend viewing. Of note:
-The circuit board design is very nicely laid out with decent components and no dodgy connections.
-There is decent overload and blast protection.
-The whole thing goes together in a simple and clean manner. It is tight design.
-The main chip is a Cyrustek ES51995, a 6000 count chip.
-The case is held together with three self-tapping screws (not the preferred method, but common at this level).
-There is a backlight which I really like. It just stays on for a few seconds. I would have liked to be able to toggle it on and off at will.
-The test leads can be clipped into the rear.
-The probe barrels are split (two of them so as to detect improper leads).
-There is a flashlight function (LED bulb at the top).
-The kit includes a useful case for protecting the multimeter in your toolbox. The case is large enough to also hold the probes, leads, velcro strap and manual.

The multimeter has a solid feel. The selector switch has well defined detents and the case does not spin if using it on a flat surface. The bail is fine and you can use all of the buttons without difficulty in the upright position except for the 400k Ohm input impedance button. The screen is big and easy to read; the decimal point is always easy to spot. There are two type-k temperature probes that can be attached for simultaneous readings. Past Amprobe multimeters have had an annoying beep when turning the selector switch; thankfully this function has been eliminated.

Style Name: AM-530: TRMS Electrical DMM
Strengths:

* All the features you would ever need for general electrical/electronic work
* Very professional appearance and almost perfect build quality
* Large and uncluttered LCD display with manual backlight
* Built-in LED flashlight

Weaknesses:

* Auto-Ranging measurements were slower than expected
* The VoltSense feature doesn't work
* Narrow vertical LCD viewing angle under indoor lighting
* Fold-out meter stand isn't very rugged

Full review:

The overall appearance, build quality, and features of the AM-530 are excellent for a full size multi-meter in the $60-$80 price range. The meter enclosure is very solid with no gaps in any front, side, or back seams. I can twist the case, squeeze it, and bang it around without causing strange bends, pops, or cracks. This meter will hold up well in the tool box and it looks very professional. The AM-530 is light enough at 13.5oz to be carried on the belt or held for extended periods of time. The sides of the meter are rubberized and provide a textured hand grip that makes it easy and comfortable to hold when taking measurements indoors or out. The rubber coating picks up grease and dirt from your hands a little but is easily cleaned with a damp cloth. The case includes two probe clips integral to the back cover that grip the probes firmly with no slipping. There is also a fold-out meter stand for propping the meter up on the workbench. I was a disappointed with the fold-out meter stand. It's very thin and the hinge is not very strong so I suspect it will not last under regular use. The stand is part of the battery cover and if it's missing, changing the battery may be a little harder.

Style Name: AM-510: Residential DMM Verified Purchase
This meter is actually quite accurate and flexible. I own a Fluke 87V and Fluke 179. Both first class instruments of course. I ordered the AM-510 just to have as a "beater" that I didn't feel like I had to be careful with. Now, I find it works so well I'm going to want to be careful with it. Not that it, let alone the Flukes, are in any way delicate. The AM-510 appears to be very rugged, and accurate. I have two DMM references from voltagestandard.com. One has various 0.1% resistors mounted, and also provides calibrated DC and AC voltages and current sources. The other has five (5) voltage references from about 0.25 VDC to about 10 VDC. All these references are specified for your particular unit to several decimal points. I just got through comparing the "accuracy" between the Flukes and the AM-510 as well as an Extech 22-816 (also a pretty good meter) using these references.

I can't take the space or time to list all the results here. But a sample of the AM-510 compared to the Fluke 85V (the "best" meter I have, and it is good) are here. I will list the actual reference value first, then the 85V, and finally the AM-510 for a few measurements. 100.060kohm/100.1kohm/100.1kohm. 5.0000vdc/5.000vdc/4.99vdc. 20.000812khz/20.00khz/19.99khz. 0.2500vdc/0.250vdc/0.249vdc. 9.9999vdc/10.0vdc/9.98vdc. These are representative results of 13 different measurements. Not too shabby a performance for the AM-510. And, I might add, the Fluke 85V sells for roughly 10 times the price of the AM-510 on Amazon.

Great, great buy in my opinion. Now, I have no doubt that the Fluke 85V is more rugged, safer, and has more circuitry protections than the AM-510. That said the AM-510 appears to not be fragile by any stretch. On the contrary.
