The new MM5000 is a True RMS Cat IV 600-volt multimeter with a large backlit display and a flip-out stand for hands-free use. Capable of measuring AC/DC voltage and resistance, it has low impedance to eliminate ghost voltages. The double-insulated protective boot around the tool sits proud of the front, protecting the screen and, according to the manufacturer, giving the tool a 10-foot drop rating. The unit takes two AA batteries and alerts you if the leads are not fully in the jacks. Price: $160 ($250 for NIST-certified MM5000N). COO: USA. 847.821.5500.
