Amprobe AM-560 Advanced HVAC Multimeter

(5 customer reviews)

  • Measures AC/DC voltage up to 1000 V, AC/DC current, resistance, frequency, capacitance, temperature, and duty cycle
  • Dual thermocouple takes simultaneous temperature readings on low and high side of an HVAC system
  • Low pass filter accurately measures voltage on variable frequency drives
  • Non-contact voltage detection enhances safety
  • Audible continuity quickly identifies shorts and opens
  • Diode test to verify diode polarity
  • Data hold freezes the reading on the display for further analysis
  • Peak hold (crest) captures and holds the peak value of a voltage or current surge
  • MIN/MAX recording records min/max measurements over time to show voltage fluctuations
  • Relative zero mode displays the difference between the actual reading and a stored reference value and may be used with any function or range
  • CAT IV 600 V/CAT III 1000 V safety rated for high voltage environments

The AM-560 autoranging digital multimeter is specifically designed for advanced HVAC applications. This HVAC multimeter offers a full set of professional digital multimeter features to measure a complete range of electrical parameters and key functions for HVAC applications. Dual thermocouples take differential temperature measurements; a low pass filter enhances accuracy on variable frequency drive measurements; and capacitance can be used to check motor startup capacitors. The AM-560 also features micro amps for flame sensor troubleshooting, non-contact voltage detection, and a CAT IV safety rating.
