Extech releases EX845 MeterLink diagnostic app for Android
By Alyssa Dalton
February 12, 2013 – Extech has developed the EX845 MeterLink app for Android mobile devices, allowing electrical contractors and plant maintenance professionals who use Extech’s EX845 clamp meter to remotely view and display readings from the meter on an Android phone or tablet up to 10m or 30ft away. The app displays values for the following functions: AC/DC voltage, AC/DC current, capacitance, resistance, frequency, diode test, and temperature (both from a Type-K thermistor probe and from the meter’s built-in non-contact, laser infrared thermometer). Function indicators highlight which measurement mode is selected on the meter. Additionally, Data Hold and Min/Max functions are also remotely displayed. The MeterLink app also features a log of recent readings for quick reference, basic trending and more context. It is available now at the Google Play Store app.
