    Meter for Refrigeration

    I'm in Florida and have been using the Fieldpiece sc56 swivel head (4-6 years) since my Fluke 16/322 combo bit the dust.

    Problem is I find the FP doesn't do so well with the moisture/condensation coming out of walk in coolers and freezers. I've been able to dry the meters out a few times.

    Anyone have good luck with a meter in super humid conditions??

    Thanks.

    I have a fluke and fieldpiece and don't have that problem.

    I assume moisture condensing after working in the cold box! Leave it out of the case and allow it to warm up for a few minuets while off.

    902 is not a bad meter but it's not one of the better ones per say. I think it tops out at 1000 ohms which is kind of pffft...

    I really like the 376 and 1587 depending on what you're checking
