General Tools' HVAC Meter Kit and HVAC DMM Kit allow users to designate high and low temperature alarm set points
General Tools and Instruments' HVAC Meter Kit (KHV57030) and HVAC DMM Kit (KHVP57068) are made for contractors and technicians who routinely measure surface temperature and electrical parameters. Combining powerful instruments with essential and practical accessories in custom padded carrying cases, these kits are built to offer great value, convenience and portability.
The HVAC Meter Kit (KHV57030) is constructed to include General’s new Rugged TRMS Multimeter with NCV Detection (DMM570) and new 30:1 Ultra Wide-Range IR Thermometer with K Port (IRT730K). The DMM570 is designed to offer 19 functions over 48 ranges. It is built to measure AC/DC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance, frequency and duty cycle, and checks for continuity and diode integrity. It is built to operate in auto or manual ranging mode and is drop-resistant to a height of 6 ft. (1.8m). Its built-in non-contact voltage (NCV) detector is designed to provide a safe way to check whether a line, cable or AC outlet is energized. The instrument also is made to measure temperature (from -58° to 1112°F / -50° to 600°C) via the included K-type stem thermocouple probe. DMM570 readings are made to be displayed on a backlit 3¾-digit (6,600 count) LCD with two digital readouts, as well as a fast-response analog bar graph.
The IRT730K is designed to measure surface temperature using one of two methods: non-contact (via an IR thermometer with laser pointer) or contact (via a K-type bead thermocouple probe). The instrument is built with a measurement range of -58° to 1400°F (-50° to 760°C) via IRT and -58° to 1112°F (-50° to 600°C) via K port. The IRT730K is made with a distance-to-spot ratio of 30:1, a laser targeting ring and adjustable emissivity. It is made to store and recall readings and allow users to designate high and low temperature alarm set points. Readings are made to be displayed on a backlit 5-digit LCD.
The included accessories for the HVAC Meter Kit (KHV57030) are: a pipe wrap thermocouple, a K-type stem thermocouple probe, a K-type bead thermocouple probe, an adaptor for thermocouples with spade lugs, a pair of CAT III 1000V rated test leads with alligator clips, and a magnetic meter hanging strap.
The HVAC DMM Kit (KHVP57068) is designed to include the DMM570 but combines it with General’s Auto Ranging AC/DC TRMS 400 Amp Clamp Meter (DAMP68). The DAMP68 is built to offer 11 functions over 34 ranges. It is made to measure AC/DC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance and frequency, and is built to check continuity and diode integrity. The DAMP68’s clamp jaw is built with a 1.48 in. (37.5mm) opening. It is designed to operate in auto or manual ranging mode and has a rugged rubber housing. The DAMP68 also is designed to measures temperature from -40° to 752°F (-40° to 400°C) via the included K-type bead thermocouple probe.
