About the Winning Product

Improve Best Practices for Insulation Testing: 

By adding insulation testing capabilities to the ubiquitous digital multimeter, electricians are always equipped for insulation testing, helping to make it a more routine part of predictive maintenance with faster troubleshooting and repairs without additional tools.

The rugged and waterproof (IP67-rated) combination meter includes a digital insulation resistance tester (or megohmmeter) with 4 different test voltages for measuring resistance up to 4 GΩ with 0.001MΩ resolution. The full-function, true RMS digital multimeter includes useful extras like duty cycle measurements and milliamp readings for analog 4-20mA current loops in industrial analog process controls.

Wireless Datastreaming for Safety & Versatility: 
The CAT-IV-rated meter’s wireless datastreaming enables safer troubleshooting and maintenance on dangerous moving equipment and one-person operation of remote safety switches. Technicians can focus on finding problems by monitoring real-time readings on a laptop or computer from safe distances – up to 30 feet away.

The meter comes complete with remote USB receiver, Windows® compatible software, test leads with alligator clips, Type K bead wire temperature probe with adapter, carrying case, and 6 x AA batteries. The MG300 is available with NIST-traceable certification (model MG300-NIST). The new meters are available from authorized Extech distributors around the world.
