Ideal Industries unveils TightSight clamp meter
By Alyssa Dalton
October 20, 2014 – Available in four models in 600A and 1000A capacities, the Ideal Industries TightSight clamp meter claims to be the world’s first to feature the TightSight LCD, a display built into the bottom of the meter to let users view measurements at arm’s length.
The company says the tester’s main display and TightSight display have large backlit numbers and symbols that can be read easily, whether the user is working in bright direct sunlight or in complete darkness. A special hook tip on the jaw’s end makes it easy to separate individual wires from a bundle, eliminating the need to come in physical contact with the wires, adds Ideal. A high voltage indicator alerts the user if any voltage over 30V AC/DC is present on any range.
