Made 2 Measure: What multimeter should I be using for voltage and current testing?

Working on your own? Need some technical advice? Don’t know where to turn? The technical team at Megger answers the latest technical query from end users.

YOU ASK:

FOR YEARS I’VE BEEN USING AN OLD MULTIMETER FOR BASIC TESTING BUT IT DOESN’T REALLY DO EVERYTHING I WANT, LIKE MEASURING VOLTAGES HIGHER THAN 600 V AND CURRENT UP TO 100 A. CAN YOU SUGGEST A REPLACEMENT?

MEGGER SAYS:

It sounds like the new Megger MET1000 multitester is just what you need. It measures AC and DC voltages of up to 1000 V and offers non-contact AC current measurement up to 200 A. It will also check resistance/continuity up to 50 kΩ. A great safety feature is that it will warn you of dangerous test voltages, even if its batteries are worn out or not fitted. Other features include single-pole testing, in-rush current measurement and phase rotation indication. It provides true RMS readings and, if you use it on a circuit protected by an RCD or RCBO, it won’t trip the device. It’s got a large clear digital display for results along with a separate bargraph, and there’s a data-hold option which is very convenient when you’re working on cables that are hard to access. The main display is backlit and there’s even a bright built-in torch to help you work more safely in dark locations. If you want even more, the MET1000 has replaceable test leads, a CAT IV 600 V safety rating, and it comes with a handy belt pouch. You’ll wonder how you ever managed without it!
