The AEMC 512 Clamp-On Meter is a general purpose professional clamp-on meter that measures up to the toughest standards. It is built into a rugged mechanical case and is designed using quality polycarbonate materials. This meter offers a complete set of measurement ranges and is in compliance with international safety and quality standards to ensure a professional and reliable measuring tool. The AEMC 512 is auto-ranging and provides the best measurement range and resolution for troubleshooting. It has a high resolution 40A range.

The AEMC 512 measures AC Amps, AC Volts, DC Volts, Ohms, Continuity (with beeper), Frequency (from V or A) and has a Diode Test function.

The AEMC 512 is sized for a comfortable, one-handed operation. This model is a True RMS clamp-on that provides RMS measurements for today's non-linear electrical environments. The jaw opening for the AEMC 512 is 1.575" (40mm).
