Wireless ac/dc clamp meter

This true RMS ac/dc clamp meter offers wireless linking technology and a built in infrared thermometer. The meter transmits electrical readings to FLIR infrared cameras via Bluetooth.


Extech EX845 METERLiNK
The EX845 is a 1000 A ac/dc CAT IV clamp meter withMETERLiNK technology and a built in infrared thermometer. METERLiNK wirelesslyconnects FLIR infrared cameras to Extech meters via Bluetooth to accelerate andsimplify inspections. During infrared inspections of electrical components,users can transmit key electrical readings such as current or voltage from theExtech EX845 clamp meter directly to a FLIR infrared camera. METERLiNKinstantly imprints the electrical readings onto a related infrared image toensure accurate, coordinated documentation for PdM inspection reports.

The EX845 clamp meter features true RMS meter functions

including ac/dc current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, infrared

and contact temperature, diode-test and continuity check. The peak hold

function captures inrush currents and transients. The bright 4-digit,

4,000-count backlit display is complemented by several one-button functions

including data hold, min/max and selectable auto- or manual-ranging. The large 1.7-inch

jaw opening handles conductors up to 750 MCM or multiple conductors such as two

500 MCM cables. For quick, point-and-shoot temperature readings, the

non-contact IR thermometer with laser pointer is useful for fast hot-spot


The meter has a CAT IV-600 V, CAT III-1000 V overvoltage

safety rating and is CE and ETL approved. It comes with an 8-piece professional

test lead set, 9 V battery, Type K thermocouple probe and a belt holster. NIST

certification is available.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
