The MT1005 from Major Tech is a heavy-duty True-RMS industrial digital multimeter for measuring ac/dc voltage and current, resistance, capacitance, frequency (electrical and electronic), duty cycles, diode testing, continuity and thermocouple temperature.

Major Tech heavy duty true RMS multimeterThe device is equipped with a large 50 000 count, 320 x 240 TFT colour LCD display and provides fast A/D converting sampling time, high accuracy, built-in data logging and trend capture functionality. It offers 4 mA to 20 mA process loop measurements with a percentage reading, and operates in a temperature range of -200 °C to 1350 °C. It traces any equipment interruptions and records the events on the device for future review.

Not only does the MT1005 trace interruptions and record the events, it can also memorise datasheets and transfer this, and other data to a PC or a smartphone via Bluetooth.

A True-RMS-meter can measure both pure waves and non-sinusoidal waves more accurately.

Nonlinear loads, such as variable speed drives or computers can distort waveforms and an average responding meter can be as much as 40 % lower or 10 % higher in its calculations when measuring distorted waves.

The battery-powered multimeter includes a Li-ion rechargeable battery that provides around six hours of operating time, and the ac adaptor to charge the system is included in the box. A low battery warning will alert users when the voltage drops below the required operating voltage, and the MT1005 also offers an automatic power-off function that the user can set to between five minutes and 30 minutes – or it can be disabled completely.

With a wide range of features and double moulded housing to ensure it handles tough conditions, the MT1005 is ideal for heavy-duty usage. Major Tech also offers a range of accessories for the device, from clamp on adaptors to additional batteries, leads and probes.
