This is the new TRUE RMS Brymen multimeter with same specifications and functions of the BM257 now built in compliance with EN61010-1 3rd Edition. It includes also a new set of quality leads with soft plastic insulated wire, gold plated tips and removable insulation caps.
This multimeter has some special functions like LOW-Z and NCV especially designed for electricians. It also implements all functions needed in electronic engineering (like uA and mV measurements).
"By a fast inspection I must say that it is a well engineered multimeter." » David L. Jones → EEVBlog
LOW-Z is a way to measure voltage with low impedance and is good to prevent phantom readings.
NCV is a build-in contact free detection of energy fields and can be used to double check if a circuit or wiring is energized or not.
It has a 6000 counts display with backlight and analog bar-graph for easy and fast reading. This multimeter can be also connect to a Windows PC for data logging with an OPTIONAL IR to USB adapter.
The instrument complies with IEC 61010-1 3RD Edition and is rated for CATIV 300V – CATIII 600V, CATII 1000V
It is shipped with a holster, test leads, temperature probe (-50°C – +250°C), batteries and user manual.
