Ideal Industries 490 Series Multimeters

Ideal Industries offers its 490 Series Datalogging Digital Multimeter with problem-solving technology and a hardened all-weather housing for industrial environments.

Ideal 490 MultimeterThe 490 lets electricians troubleshoot problems in industrial applications such as power distribution systems, electro-mechanical equipment, and motor drives on the plant floor, as well as perform a range of basic maintenance tasks to maximize productivity and minimize downtime.

Multimeters can be complex and require technical set-up knowledge. However, the 490 Series is extremely user-friendly with its auto-sensing functions, easy-to-read backlit LCD and simple toggle operation. Everything that is needed is in the package, including software, USB cable, test leads with alligator clips, K-Type thermocouple, and a sturdy protective carrying case.

The 490 Series multimeter is built tough to keep performing in the most demanding industrial settings. It is safety rated for CAT III 1000 V and CAT IV 600V. It is also feature-rich with True RMS readings for error-free testing, Auto AC/DC voltage (1000V) and current mode with frequency indication, auto selection for resistance/continuity/diode/capacitance, plus data acquisition and logging of up to 20,000 records when used in unattended monitoring of signals over time. High Frequency Rejection (HFR) mode provides accurate voltage/frequency readings on non-sinusoidal wave forms, such as adjustable speed motor drives.

When not in use the 490 Series will power itself off to conserve battery life.

Two models are available: the entry-level 61-497 multimeter and the 61-498 multimeter with 100,000 count display and higher accuracy. Both are backed by a 2-year warranty.
