New York, NY - Two new HVAC installation and maintenance kits from General Tools & Instruments — HVAC Meter Kit (KHV57030) and HVAC DMM Kit (KHVP57068)—are ideal for contractors and technicians who routinely measure surface temperature and electrical parameters, says the company. Combining powerful instruments with essential and practical accessories in custom padded carrying cases, these kits offer great value, convenience and portability, says the company. The HVAC Meter Kit (KHV57030) includes General’s new Rugged TRMS Multimeter with NCV Detection (DMM570) and new 30:1 Ultra Wide-Range IR Thermometer with K Port (IRT730K). The DMM570 offers 19 functions over 48 ranges. It measures AC/DC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance, frequency and duty cycle, and checks for continuity and diode integrity. It can operate in auto or manual ranging mode and is drop-resistant to a height of 6 ft. (1.8m). Its built-in non-contact voltage (NCV) detector provides a safe way to check whether a line, cable or AC outlet is energized. The HVAC DMM Kit (KHVP57068) includes the DMM570 but combines it with General’s Auto Ranging AC/DC TRMS 400 Amp Clamp Meter (DAMP68). The DAMP68 offers 11 functions over 34 ranges. It measures AC/DC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance and frequency, and can check continuity and diode integrity. The DAMP68’s clamp jaw has a 1.48 in. (37.5mm) opening. It can operate in auto or manual ranging mode and has a rugged rubber housing.
