BREA, Calif., Feb. 21, 2007 -- Fieldpiece Instruments, manufacturer of professional-grade instruments for HVAC/R field service, introduces the SC50 Series Dual-Display Clamp Multimeters. The models SC53 (pictured) and SC52 allow HVAC/R field service technicians to measure amps and volts as well as other parameters at the same time.
Rey Harju, President of Fieldpiece Instruments says, "It's like having two meters in your hand!"
These meters are the latest addition to the broad Fieldpiece clamp meter family and are designed specifically for use in the HVAC/R industry. They feature a wire-grabbing jaw that makes it easy to separate and capture a wire from a tight bundle.
The SC53 features Capacitance and Temperature measurement and includes a k-type thermocouple, which plugs directly into the meter. There's no adapter to lose and more importantly, plugging directly into the meter gives better temperature compensation and more accurate readings than meters that use adapters. The SC52 features Microamps DC and a Diode Test. Both meters measure volts and amps at the same time, as well as non-contact voltage down to 24V for thermostats, and measurements for continuity and ohms. The amp clamp display and the meter display feature independent on-off, auto-off and hold functions.
Both the SC52 and the SC53 include a carrying case and test leads. The suggested trade price for the SC53 is $99 U.S. The SC52 trade price is $79 U.S. Complete SC50 Series specifications, literature and operator's manuals are available on the company's website www.fieldpiece.com.
