The Ideal Industries 61-342 digital multimeter is a true RMS, auto- and manual-ranging meter that measures voltage, current, resistance, duty cycle, capacitance, frequency, and temperature, and performs diode and continuity tests in electrical applications.
An audible continuity sensor confirms a circuit conducts electricity, and a diode test detects proper functioning of a circuit's diodes. Fused current ranges protect the meter in high-energy environments. Temperature measurements are taken using a K-type thermocouple.
The LCD is backlit for use in low lighting and updates readings 2.5 times per second. It displays the present measurement or the minimum (Min) and maximum (Max) reading in a session, for tracking sudden changes in readings. Relative mode displays the difference between the measuring value and the user-defined reference value. Relative mode is helpful when comparing two readings or removing test lead resistance from low-ohm measurements.
The unit automatically turns off after 10 minutes of nonuse to conserve battery life, and a low-battery indicator signals when the meter's batteries need to be replaced.
