TPI 296 clamp-on plus DMM with True RMS and Harmonics capabilities - TPI offers a full line of digital clamp-on meters for electrical, commercial, HVAC/R, industrial and process control applications. Digital Clamp-On Meter Amp Plus. The 296 is a clamp-on plus DMM with True RMS and Harmonics capabilities. The 296 offers measurements in all basic electrical functions, plus:

True RMS: Provides accurate and dependable readings of non-linear loads.

HDR Mode: Determines if a signal is clean or distorted.

Bar Graph: When measuring frequency, bar graph indicates current level.

TRIM Mode: Smoothes out unstable readings.

Peak Mode: For start-up and inrush currents.

Sleep Mode: Preserves battery life

Data Hold: Holds the reading on the display for easy viewing.
