Milwaukee® Introduces New Digital Multimeter

Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces theDigital Multimeter as a part of its new line of test and measurement products. With a feature set specifically tailored for the Electrician and HVAC technician, the new unit features true-rms functionality to obtain accurate readings and Lo-Z measurement to eliminate ghost voltage.

 

"Ghost voltages appear when energized wires create a magnetic field impacting other wires in the bundle and create a false higher voltage reading than actually exists,” says Jonathan Morrow, Director Marketing Product Management-Test & Measurement for Milwaukee Electric Tool Company. “The Lo-Z measurement feature eliminates this ghost voltage and gives a correct reading to our users. This is an important feature that does not exist on many digital multimeters on the market today.”

 

The new Milwaukee® Digital Multimeter offers rugged over-molding for increased durability and grip, a large white on black display for clearer readings, a slide rail system to add proprietary accessories and over-molded dial for easy one handed use. In addition, the new model meets the safety specifications required by the electrical user.

 

With the introduction of the new Digital Multimeter and the entire Test & Measurement line, Milwaukee® continues its growth as an industry leader in disruptive innovation. With a commitment to developing trade specific tools, Milwaukee® will continue to build this platform to offer industry leading performance, safety and ergonomics.
