Amprobe PM53A Pocket Digital Multimeter with VolTect™ Non-Contact Voltage Detection

The Amprobe PM53A is an essential shirt pocket-sized meter that is only 3/8" thick and less than 3oz in weight. This meter offers full functionality with AC and DC voltage to 450 V, resistance to 6 Megohm, capacitance to 100 μF, frequency to 30 kHz and continuity with a beeper. It also offers VolTect™, a built-in, non-contact voltage detection feature for AC voltages.

Another key feature is AutoTect which automatically selects AC and DC voltage, or resistance measurement based on the test point to which the leads are connected. Fully auto-ranging, this meter offers seven different measurement functions plus features that are usually found in much more expensive and larger meters. The digital display is oversized with large digits and unit icons in the display. In spite of its size, this meter is fully safety rated to CAT III 300 V, CAT II 450 V and is UL listed. Includes a silicone protective holster, attached test leads, battery and manual.

Amprobe PM53A Pocket Digital Multimeter with VolTect™ Non-Contact Voltage Detection is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and handy to have around the garage. The readout was easy to read and was very accurate for what I needed. I just installed some accesories in the my van and needed to find certain wires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is so easy to use! I have worked in home remodeling for over 35 years, and in that time I am constsntly having to add new wiring to existing circut breaker boxes. Too many times i have found wires connected to the wrong breakers, on the wrong amperage types, etc. I could not do half my work without this meter. Digital readout is easy to see in any light, or dark, conditions. Compact design is perfect for work bags. I recomend this to any remodeler or electrician.
