It has a rubberized cover over the top, sides, and most of the back to give a good grip when holding it.

Samir240 that item has not been in our tester line for over 15 years now. I see Galco online says they have some in stock but again anything out there is pretty old. Are you needing anything in particular in mind? Maybe we can find something newer for you. Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

The Ideal Brand, Test-Pro Digital Multi-Meter with TRMS is a well-made professional quality true RMS multimeter for taking accurate electrical measurements presented on a large easy to read digital LCD display. In addition to common electrical measurements this meter features maximum, minimum, and relative functions to include data hold useful for capturing variable data. There is a bright backlight for low light conditions, high quality strain relieved test leads with twist-on crocodile clips. The meter is surrounded by a protective rubber sleeve that can be removed for fuse or battery replacement, or left off to reduce the footprint and overall size of the meter. A built-in stand is handy for making benchtop measurements. Electricians, electronics technicians, auto mechanics, home owners, hobbyists and students will find this to be an exceptional meter in their careers, projects, and education.

High quality multi meter with many functions including AC (Different voltages) DC(Different voltages),resistance, Temperature in both Fahrenheit and centigrade, impedance and ac and dc currents. The meter comes with both probes for pinpoint usage and alligator clips for attaching to wires to measure reading when the wire is energized without the risk of shock Recommend this meter for people who work in a field that requires electrical measuring.

(What's this)
This unit as some issues I don’t like, compared to my current tester. The main issue is the method of the cable connections. The end fittings have an odd connection, and they have plugs to fit in the connectors to keep them clean. Unfortunately, these small parts are easy to lose. They have alligator clips (which could be a nice feature), but they also have little plugs to get lost. Actually, I wasn’t able to make continuity with the alligator clip to the lead wire, so they are worthless. On my older unit, I made a couple jumper wires with alligator clips on them, and they would serve the same function, in addition to allow continuity testing of longer items. The temperature probe has a double terminal plug in to insert in the tester. No instructions, but I see they have a small + - stamp on the plug (if you didn’t know it, you will miss it), and the negative terminal must be in the common plug of the tester. Certainly, could have been made easier if it was color coded, or at least make the markings more prominent, and make the markings match the label on the tester. I think the basic tester is okay, but the hardware to use it is poor.

Response from Ron KipperAugust 28, 2019
Mike The end caps that I believe you are describing were the result of code changes enacted to reduce the chances of shorting out live conductors when prodding around an energized J-Box or higher voltage panel. Many people have shorted out their lead tips during their career, some with more dire consequences than others. The intent of those caps is that they be removed just prior to measuring a standard 120 volt outlet, and be replaced immediately afterwards. Having said that I have given classes where even the instructor told me he didn’t know what they were for and had immediately thrown them out upon opening the box. The primary goal is always the safe use of the meter. As for the polarity of the thermocouple, you make a valid point about making it easier to view. We appreciate and value your input, thank you for your comments. By the way, we believe that you will find any currently available meter that meets Category and UL safety standards, whether a multimeter or clamp meter, will have that very same style of protective and removeable end cap.

This Ideal brand multi-meter has a lot of useful features. For example, it automatically adjusts to the range of measurement rather than having you set the range manually and risk being wrong and potentially damaging the multi-meter. This piece of equipment will automatically adjust, saving you a lot of trouble. It can measure AC and DC voltage (true RMS AC voltage too), as well as capacitance, resistance, temperature, current, frequency, and, lastly, continuity with an audible tone – very useful to see if you have a short or a proper connection. It has a nice backlight which increases the visibility of the large one-inch LCD digits on the screen. It also automatically powers off to save its internal battery power. It even has a built-in stand (see picture) which allows hands free use with good visibility of the display (see picture). This really does have a lot of great design features, and it does come with test leads as well (they store in the back of the case – see picture). The leads can convert to very large alligator clips which are easy to use (see picture). The instruction sheet that is included in the package will really answer all questions about the operation of this multi-meter. Having worked with electronics several decades and having seen a lot of test equipment over the years, I highly recommend this multi-meter because it really packs a lot of features in a handy size unit!
