    This product is a great idea but missed the mark in a couple of ways

    I think that a pocket-sized intrument like this was a great idea BUT where Amprobe could have done better in the design is that the indicator light when voltage is sensed is hard to see unless it is pointing at you. This could be unsafe if the tech doesn’t “see the light”. Additionally, if an audible “beep” or something of that nature were incorporated, there would be less of an issue.

    ✘ No, I do not recommend this product

    Safety requires this tools capacity to warn and to inform you.

    Danger is ever present when trouble shooting. The label “trouble” declares unknows, potential difficulties, dangers and be knowing of to beware.

Your expertise can used while providing the evaluation and diagnosis using this tool to protect and expand your knowledge of the unknowns.
    The Amprobe IR-500 enables your enhanced awareness. The elevations in tempature known from a distance, especially at night when this tool is a light. . The Amprobe aides your view with a work light as part of the tool plus allowing warning of heat not visable.
    The light source of this tool enables the other uses of this gem. Is the heat source chemical, electrical or perhaps a just beginning of blaze secondary to short or over heating?
    The assessment carried in one hand, the Amprobe IR-500, shows you the way. Those observing will as see. Share this message so others catch up to your safety level.

    Great accuracy,features, and so handy

    I regularly had to go to my truck and get my infrared temp meter.
    Now I have one in my shirt pocket for whenever I need to take temperature measurements.
    Of course you can never have enough flashlights, so this and the non-contact voltage measurements are great extra benefits.
    HVAC tech’s can’t loose with this tool!

    size instrument.

    reliable meter!

    Many of you know that there are various ranges for IR meters. Well I am here to say that the Amprobe IR-500 has great measurability and accuracy accuracy. I use it in hv/ac and incommericial appliances. You can check temp and voltage, not to mention a flashlight. Once again you get what you pay for, so I am happy to say I purchase another amprobe product to add to my tools.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.
