The AEMC 5217 is a true RMS (TRMS) portable digital multimeter that measures a variety of electrical and associated parameters, including voltage (AC and DC), resistance, capacitance, frequency and temperature. In addition to these measurements, this multimeter can also perform continuity checks, voltage detection and diode testing (including forward bias voltage). Measurement features include Auto Range mode, which enables the multimeter to select the best range for the input detected, and a Data HOLD function. This meter is rugged, simple to use and rated to 600V CAT III
