The industry’s enthusiastic reception of the EX570 demonstrates the burgeoning demand for the high-feature, high-value testers and meters offered by Extech.

The annual award honors products selected by Electrical Products and Solutions considered to be the top products in the electrical industry. “The products and services chosen are each unique, beneficial and reliable in their own right,” says Danny Salchert, publisher of Electrical Products & Solutions.

About the Winning Product

The rugged Extech EX570 is ideal for industrial/plant maintenance and electrical contractors. The affordable EX570 offers advanced multimeter functions, high accuracy (0.06%), True RMS precision plus an integrated infrared thermometer patented by Extech. The EX570 protects users with Category IV-600V and Category III-1000V safety ratings.

The large, illuminated LCD displays a 5-digit readout (to 40,000 counts) and a useful 40-segment bar graph for analog comparisons. The EX570 measures voltage, millivolt, current, resistance, capacitance, and frequency plus diode and continuity tests. Added functions include Min./Max., Average, Hold, Relative, Peak Hold and “quick-note” memory for 3 readings.

Thermocouple temperature readings are complemented by an infrared thermometer for safe, non-contact temperature measurement (30:1 distance to spot ratio). Built-in IR simplifies the identification of overheating motors, electrical panels, and other components from a distance and without a separate thermometer. 

The Extech EX570 is covered by a 3-year warranty and includes double-molded test leads, temperature probe, magnetic hanging strap, 9V battery and case. Additionally, NIST calibration is available. The suggested retail price for the EX570 is $249.99. For more information, contact Extech Instruments at 781-890-7440 or visit www.extech.com/instruments.
