Get in close with Extech MA430 series clamp meters
By Anthony Capkun
October 10, 2013 – Extech Instruments’ MA430 Series of digital clamp meters (MA430 400A AC, MA430T True RMS AC and MA435T True RMS AC/DC) are compact and easy to hold, says the company, while offering a 1.2-in. jaw opening to accommodate conductors up to 350MCM.
Featuring a large, four-digit readout, the illuminated display is easy to see in poorly lit work areas, and the thumb-dial selector is ergonomically placed for one-handed operation. Eliminating the need for a separate tester, the non-contact voltage (NCV) detector feature identifies the presence of voltage on live wires, and alerts the user with a red LED indicator. The Extech MA430 series clamp meters are Cat III 600V-rated and CE, ETL approved. Each comes complete with test leads, general-purpose Type K bead wire temperature probe (MA435T only), 9V battery and soft case.
