Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Klein Test and Measurement Meter Line Expands

Klein Test and Measurement Update - Winter 2015

Klein Test and Measurement Line Welcomes New Members

Klein has announced a boat load of new instruments aimed at the professional electrician. The new Klein test and measurement tools feature easy to use dials and buttons, backlit displays, molded test lead holders, and protective over-molded housings. The complete line meets CAT III or CAT IV safety ratings as defined by IEC 61010 (3rd edition) standards.


While there may be a ton of products here to sort through, we’ve included a link to each product page so you can find out more detailed information. Here’s what Sean O’Flaherty from Klein had to say about the new lineup:

“Safety is the most important feature in all Klein Tools’ products thus our new meters meet the latest safety standards in the industry. Our new test and measurement line will exceed expectations on the jobsite and will serve as go-to products for years to come because of their toughness, functionality and capabilities.”

– Sean O’Flaherty, senior product manager at Klein Tools

I have a Klein mm200 digital multimeter for sometime now and it has done a great job for me. I now need a multimeter that has a 1000V capacity but with so many I’m having a hard time deciding and I’m going to ask a naive questions, so here we go. What is the diff. between a meter that only stipulates it for 1000v and a meter that has a 300/600/1000v combined, is it that the 1000v only meter actually covers all three ratings of 300/600/1000v or is it that it is not able to do work to do work… Read more »
