AMPROBE INSTRUMENTS - AM-510 - MULTIMETER, DIGITAL, AUTO/MANUAL 4.9 5 9 9
Reasonable multimeter in this price range After searching for a reasonably priced entry level multimeter, I finally settled for the AM-510. I looked at Klein and Fluke multimeters. I received the AM-510 and checked most of features and it works as advertised. It is MADE IN CHINA not in USA as some of the reviews mistakenly mentioned. It is reasonable quality for a multimeter in this price range. The customer support is good as well. I called tech support as well as customer support and I am satisfied with the results. However, NCV (non contact voltage) detect function is not reliable on outlets and I DO NOT advise anyone to rely on it. However, on a cord or wire, NCV was pretty reliable as far as I can tell. It seems that the unit has to be very close for it to work. In my opinion. the battery test function (9V & 1.5V) is useless. I am not sure why it occupies 2 slots of the dial setting. I am left to wonder what's the difference between these and Voltage setting as it gives identical results...It looks like Amprobe uses the same body/knob for all of AM-500 series and had to fill slots with "something" for the low end units.

Quality Instrument for A Value Price The Amprobe AM-510 is a very nice tool. It has an excellent case, with a solid feel, unlike the flimsy plastic on lesser multi-tools. The digital display is very vivid and easy to read. The unit even has a built in flash light, which can be very handy. I am not an electrician or electronics professional. So, needless to say, this meter can do MANY more tests than I am equipped to handle...which is great! It senses voltage just by placing it near a source, which saves time and is safer. The fold out back stand is a feature that can permit you to use both hands and still easily see the readings. When I received my unit, the manual was written on the provided mini disc. My laptop would not recognize the mini disc and I had to take it to FedEx to have them print the manual. I was unable to find the AM-510 Manual on the Amprobe website. They had many manuals listed, but, not this unit. As for the manual, it does not have enough instructions (for a novice) explaining how to perform all the tests it can accomplish. I wish Amprobe had included a short example (and some diagrams) depicting what this tool can do. To me, the manual was of very little help and I am left with a great tool that I know how to check the voltage of a battery and the voltage in a wall circuit! :-) May 26, 2015
Great product I have been using Amprobe for many years both in my work and at home and have always had very good luck with them and would recommend them to anyone.. This meter is easy to use and accurate for testing in home and electronics devices for what I need it for. May 26, 2015
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
