TIGHTSITE® & Conventional Fork Meters

INDUSTRY NEWS

IDEAL has added 2 new Fork Meters to their Test & Measurement family.

  • 61-405 200A AC Split Jaw Meter w/Backlight & Flashlight (CAT III 600V)
  • 61-415 200A 200A AC/DC Split Jaw Meter TightSight™ w/Backlight & Flashlight (CAT III 1000V, CAT IV 600V)

The IDEAL 61-405 Split Jaw Meter is a CAT III auto ranging true root mean square (TRMS) digital fork meter that measures up to 200 Amps AC between the forks. It measures up to 600V AC and DC, continuity, resistance, capacitance, and diodes via test-leads (included) and detects the presence of voltage between 40V to 600V via a non-contact sensor in the tip of the right fork. The large display can be backlit, and a built-in flashlight can be illuminated when working in poor or zero lighting conditions. The unit uses an illuminated red LED in the center of the meter and emits audible tones to notify when voltage is above 30 volts, when continuity is detected and when the NCV senses voltage within its set range. The back of the meter has a built-in two position dual probe holder; the lower position allows for probe storage, the higher position allows for testing or measurement holding the meter and secured probe in one hand and the second probe in the other hand, or for both probes to be secured in the tip while conducting measurements. This meter features HOLD, MIN/MAX, Relative, Range, and selectable Auto Power Off functions. The meter comes with 3 1.5V AAA Batteries and an easy open, fully accessible storage pouch with a belt loop that allows for meter and storage.

  • UL Certified CAT III 600V, measures 0-200 Amps AC and 0-600 Volts AC/DC
  • Provides True RMS AC voltage and current for accurate measurements on non-linear signals
  • Measures AC Current, AC/DC Voltage, continuity, resistance, capacitance, diodes, and senses AC voltage
  • Built-in probe tip holder and hanging strap clip allows safer, easier measurement and probe storage
  • Built-in Flashlight and backlit display allow for safer/faster work in poorly lit environments
  • Includes soft case, test leads, and batteries
