EX540: 12 Function True RMS Industrial Wireless MultiMeter/Datalogger

The multiple-award-winning Extech EX540 digital multimeter is the first handheld multimeter to offer wireless data streaming to a laptop or PC for datalogging or real-time monitoring. The new DMM is part of the EX500 series of industrial multimeters, considered the "toughbook" of multimeters. Extech's ruggedized, waterproof design can withstand a 6-foot drop, making it the ideal starting point for a go-anywhere DMM.

The innovative new meter offers wireless connectivity to your laptop or PC using a USB receiver with a range comparable to Bluetooth™ (10m/33 ft). The EX540 transmits real-time data for monitoring, trending and analysis (using the included software) on one of two available frequencies (433 and 914 MHz).

Now, electrical professionals can monitor and datalog readings at a safe distance from hazardous locations. Additionally, it is easier to perform remote tasks such as powering up a device from a control panel that is not nearby. From a time-saving perspective for laptop users, the EX540 permits a user to set up his or her laptop at a centralized location and then sequentially datalog readings throughout a site without relocating the laptop.

Ruggedized to industrial-duty specs, the new Extech is a True RMS DMM that, in addition to wireless datalogging, can log up to 9,999 readings internally and also reads voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, frequency (with dual-range sensitivity for electrical and electronic work), duty cycle (dwell), continuity, diode testing (2.8V), and even temperature (using its Type K thermistor bead probe).

The new meter features accuracy that is a tough-to-beat 0.06% and it is backed by a Category IV overvoltage safety rating, protecting users even on outdoor wiring.

Several one-button statistical data functions include minimum/maximum, relative, hold, and peak hold as well as selectable auto-ranging or manual-ranging. An analog-style bargraph complements the EX540's informative triple-reading display.

The Extech EX540 includes double-molded test leads, USB wireless receiver, temperature probe, magnetic hanging strap, 9V battery and carrying case. Additionally, NIST calibration is available. The suggested retail price for the EX540 is $299.99 (USD, US market). For more information, contact Extech Instruments at 781-890-7440 or visit www.extech.com/instruments.

The wait is officially over. For the invaluable versatility and added safety of remote monitoring and datalogging, the wireless datalogging multimeter has finally arrived.
