FLIR 600 Amp True RMS AC/DC Clamp Meter with IGM is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWSOME CLAMP METER!!! i was looking for a high end clamp meter for my work, then i found the gold pearl, the flir cm 174! i found love. this meter does it all for me so easy to use and i like the fact that the screen is ver easy to read in dark places i always under a semi truck so having a nice lite up screen makes it easy for me to read my readings. testing alternators, cables etc. ok i spent more but it's so worth it. it's tough and has a good size for nice fit in your hands.i use the camera from time to time to look for hot spots like loose connections,hot relays etc. all in all the best meter i ever bought.Thanks Flir for making my work easier. only wish for better power like rechargeable batteries when using the camera too often. anyway when only using the meter it's all fine. battery life is good. now i'm looking for a protective pouch.. this is the only negative point at this price we should get protective case for this high end tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Average Product with flaws I have one. The device needs a firmware update urgent. with the worklight on it drains the batteries in a couple minutes. The same thing with the IGM on. Don´t buy till Flir decides correct this issue. Im using high energy batteries and are expensive

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tool!! Great tool. Great for finding hot or loose connections. Easily scan and find problems in equipment electrical panels. Love it!!! And the VFD mode! Epic!! Now the bad. The battery life is terrible. Keep a case of AAA 's handy. The color screen eats them up! Let alone when you use the thermal imager. Would really like to see a larger battery bank in it. Also. Sometimes when you go to ir mode if your battery power is under half, it can't handle the draw and the unit goes straight into low battery mode. Still wouldn't go on without it. However the magnetic attachment is a must. The jaws aren't strong enough to clamp it on to a wire to hold it while you take voltages. Still recommend it! And use it daily. many jealous techs at my work now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from CM174 not the best FLIR product I bought this product with very high hopes and in all honesty have been very dissapointed. First impressions were ok but once taking it to work and using it , the product was pretty cheap build compared to others co workers units. The DC clamp amp has been hit and miss and I often check it with my 30 dollar craftsman meter. Screws have fallen out of it that hold casing together. The DC amp side has always needed zeroed out beacuse it read 2+ amps, but now it will not zero at all and reads over 24 amps. I feel the dial that switches function has loosened drastically since first bought and feel it will not last several years even if functions worked. I wish I had read that you can not use anything past 6k ohms because I need that daily which causes me to use my home depot meter.(not their bad because it did say in the specs) I knew the battery life would be poor after reading and yes it is, I knew the thermal wouldn't be high resolution and it is almost funny. When I first got it and took it to a training course for work I was excited about it but after it being used by everyone because they haven't seen one most people were much more happy with their less exciting meters. I feel this could be a lemon and maybe not all are this bad, but I wish I could go back and buy a different meter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IR function display not as good as one would hope First of all, out of the package, this clamp meter from FLIR is top notch quality in the hand. Comes with provided probe leads and 4ea AAA batteries for install. Battery is by turning a half turn knob on the back that does seem to be cheaply made of plastic but does lock up tight. Meter function with lead probes is like any other standard multimeter. Display is a nice LCD display for meter functions with white digits displayed. Use of the IR function is a little crude and IR display is small. IR is functional but I would recommend using a better IR tool as a primary rather than the one on this meter but it will do in a pinch. Lastly, whether using the IR or the other meter functions that do not utilize the IR display, it does like to eat batteries quicker than a standard multimeter. I would recommend keeping a extra set of AAA batteries on hand if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 year warranty! I like this clamp meter for several reasons. The first is that it is very slim & can easily fit into a pocket. The jaws are also narrow & allow easier access to difficult spots. Obviously the thermal imager is a HUGE feature to have. The image displayed is not as clear as an HD tv, but it is certainly good enough to see a difference of temperature & problem areas. It has an LED light on the back. No more poor lighting conditions to work around. The probes are high quality & have removable caps. The 10 year warranty is incredible, especially since the thermal imager is not a standard component of clamp meters & may experience new product problems. It's great to know that FLIR backs up their products. It also has many standard features found on most meters. This is a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designed as a high end commercial or industrial meter This FLIR clamp meter has the features used in industrial settings but it is also a high end commercial tool. The main feature of this multi-meter is the thermal imaging. The screen resolution is low and not sharp, but it does a very good job of targeting close-in troubleshooting. The display is fit for locating hot spots which is its purpose. It does have good functionality, with emissivity settings and the ability to select the spectrum display color scheme. The DMM functions are all well designed. It has a conventional dial and configuration settings are accessible with the touch of a button. It has an integral clamp meter and advanced electrical features including True RMS, LoZ, VFD Mode, Inrush and Smart Diode with Disable. The design of the clamp lets you get into tight spaces and has built-in LEDs so you can see in dark areas. A nice addition for FLIR to add would be a SD card so you could save the thermal images. Learning all the functions takes some studying. The full manual is in a PDF file, which is nice for searching to find what you are looking for. There is a printed reference booklet as well. It runs on four AAA batteries (included). It is well designed and accurate and with all of the integrated features it is an excellent tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi Function Meter/IGM As with most tools that start combining features, one tends to go slightly to the wayside of the other. Having already owning a Flir Thermal Imager, I had some notions of what it is capable of. I will state this ... having both in one compact unit IS helpful but not a replacement for individual units IF you have the need & means to do so. Purchasing both a Flir Meter and a Flir Thermal Imager separate would cost far higher than this all-in-one so it becomes a bit of a tradeoff that I feel Flir did quite well balancing for the higher end DIY uder or Pro alike! This is packed full of user friendly metering features and easy to read/understand menus on the display.
