    Dependable meter for maint. tech

    Hello everyone I'm new here and shopping for a dependable meter. I'm a maintenance tech for a apartment community. I'm searching for a dependable meter that will do what i need. I will be my meter for everything I need one for. Im shopping to replace my crappy cheap Klein meter. It needs to do ac dc check capacitors take temps and be user friendly. I would like to not spend over 200 but if I need to then I will have to. So what do you recommend?

    Thanks

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I used the sc 77 for the past 3 years, its a backup to my sc 56 now, but thr 77 was flawless, either will be a good decision, well worth the money, ive never used any other brand, so I cant comment on them

    i keep looking at the sc57. i like the wireless aspect that would make ac work easier instead of climbing 3 flights of stairs going from the unit to the air handler
