Designed for tight budgets, the Extech EX210 from Extech Instruments is a rugged, compact multimeter complemented by an infrared thermometer. It quickly identifies overheating motors or locates hot spots on electrical panels or HVAC vents without contact. The built-in IR thermometer with laser pointer features a 4:1 distance-to-target ratio and a range from minus 20C to plus 230C (minus 5F to plus 446F). Features include a large, easy-to-read four-digit backlit display, choice of auto-or manual-ranging, and continuity and diode testing. Cat III-600V rated, it is suitable for electrical troubleshooting on electronics, appliances and inside building circuits. It comes with test leads and 9-V battery.
