About the EX570

The Extech EX570 is ideal for industrial, plant maintenance and MRO electrical technicians. In addition to comprehensive multimeter functions, high accuracy (0.06%), and True RMS precision, the EX570 protects users with Category IV-600V (and Category III-1000V) safety ratings. Additionally, the EX570 features an integrated infrared thermometer, a patented function only found on Extech meters.

The new Extech EX570 is designed to withstand harsh environments and usage with a rugged, double-molded housing. The large, illuminated LCD displays a 5-digit readout (to 40,000 counts) and a useful 40-segment bar graph for analog comparisons and quick tests. The EX570 offers a wide array of must-have multimeter measurements (including capacitance, frequency, diode and continuity functions) coupled with convenient, one-button access to frequently used functions: Min./Max., Average, Hold, Relative, and Peak Hold. Store up to three measurements in the onboard memory.

In addition to type K thermocouple temperature measurements, the EX570 offers an integrated infrared thermometer for safe, point-and-shoot, non-contact temperature measurement with a useful 30:1 spot-to-distance ratio. The EX570 not only ensures electrical technicians can perform all essential electrical diagnostics, the built-in IR makes it easy to identify overheating motors, electrical panels, and other components from a distance and without an additional meter.

Complete with double-molded test leads, type K bead wire temperature probe (thermistors), magnetic hanging strap, 9V battery and storage case.
