    Multi-meter Recommendations

    I am researching the latest multi-meters. Looking for one that's appropriate for residential/commercial applications. Cost isn't an issue as long as it's versatile, durable, and easy for a tech to learn/use.

    Brand, model, and your opinion on what makes it a winner are welcome. Thank you!

    Really depends on what you are needing to measure.

    I have an Ideal clamp and one which will do phase rotation in the truck.

    My most used is the Klein mm500 which lives in my toolbag it will measure volts, resistance, and do continuity all in a waterproof package.

    Kinda nice when most of the trouble calls are in the rain.

    In my tool bag I have a Fluke T5-1000. It has volt, ohms and amps. For initial troubleshooting it can't be beat. Current will handle up to 100 amps. That covers most of the issues. In my truck I carry an 87-V and and 89.

    I'm also new to the business.

    My choice was the Fluke 902 FC.

    I liked that it had a Type-K thermocouple, and was wireless.
