AMPROBE INSTRUMENTS - AM-510 - MULTIMETER, DIGITAL, AUTO/MANUAL 5 5 6 6
Outstanding Value This meter is actually quite accurate and flexible. I own a Fluke 87V and Fluke 179. Both first class instruments of course. I ordered the AM-510 just to have as a "beater" that I didn't feel like I had to be careful with. Now, I find it works so well I'm going to want to be careful with it. Not that it, let alone the Flukes, are in any way delicate. The AM-510 appears to be very rugged, and accurate. I have two DMM references from voltagestandard.com. One has various 0.1% resistors mounted, and also provides calibrated DC and AC voltages and current sources. The other has five (5) voltage references from about 0.25 VDC to about 10 VDC. All these references are specified for your particular unit to several decimal points. I just got through comparing the "accuracy" between the Flukes and the AM-510 as well as an Extech 22-816 (also a pretty good meter) using these references. I can't take the space or time to list all the results here. But a sample of the AM-510 compared to the Fluke 85V (the "best" meter I have, and it is good) are here. I will list the actual reference value first, then the 85V, and finally the AM-510 for a few measurements. 100.060kohm/100.1kohm/100.1kohm. 5.0000vdc/5.000vdc/4.99vdc. 20.000812khz/20.00khz/19.99khz. 0.2500vdc/0.250vdc/0.249vdc. 9.9999vdc/10.0vdc/9.98vdc. These are representative results of 13 different measurements. Not too shabby a performance for the AM-510. And, I might add, the Fluke 85V sells for roughly 10 times the price of the AM-510 on Amazon. Great, great buy in my opinion. Now, I have no doubt that the Fluke 85V is more rugged, safer, and has more circuitry protections than the AM-510. That said the AM-510 appears to not be fragile by any stretch. On the contrary. One final comment, regarding AC measurements with the AM-510. It is an "Average Reading" AC meter, whereas the Flukes I have, and the Extech, are "True RMS" AC meters. The reference standards I mentioned have a square wave on the AC settings. True RMS meters will read these correctly, whereas an Averaging meter will only do so with a Sine Wave source. Here is an example of the AC results as above: 4.999vac/5.004vac/5.52vac. The 5.52vac is very close to what an "Average Reading" meter should show with a square wave of about 5vac so this is actually fine, just so long as you recognize what's going on. Hard to think of a better bargain than this AM-510 unless you really do need a True RMS AC meter. Deserves 5 stars without a doubt. It has Relative readings which I haven't tested. It has a battery test feature which I have tested and it is good. It, of course has a diode test function which I have tested and it works right, at least with silicon diodes; haven't checked with germanium. In addition to AC measurements it has a duty cycle feature that I checked with house current and it works right. On and on. Go ahead and get one, you won't be sorry IMHO. January 23, 2014
Top Shelf Actually, I discovered how good this product is by accident. My air conditioning repairman had come to service my compressor, and several weeks later, I discovered this tool in the attic. Coincidentally, as an owner of several apartment units, I had a call for some faulty electrical circuits in several of the units. I decided to give this device a try before returning it to its owner. I was quickly able to assess the situation and replace the faulty GFCI receptacles in a matter of minutes, saving myself several hundred dollars in a service call. It was at that time I decided to purchase one for myself. March 30, 2012
Accurate readings I have used this product and I am very satisfied with it. Easy to use and very versitle. The tone during continuity could be louder, but is good for now. Price is reasonable. March 29, 2012
Better than the others I used many of the others meters while I was going through my journeyman training.this meter was by far the best. Longest lasting, easiest use, very versatile. March 29, 2012
Excellent tool Easy to read display, simple and quick connections. Durable case and leads. Resonable cost. March 29, 2012
