Southwire Multimeters, Voltage and Continuity Testers from AutomationDirect

Southwire Tools Test Meters 5x7

The AutomationDirect lineup of tools and test equipment now includes digital multimeters, clamp-on True RMS multimeters, voltage testers, and continuity testers from Southwire.

Southwire digital multimeters test for AC/DC voltage, current, resistance, continuity, capacitance, frequency, duty cycle, or temperature. All meters meet or exceed UL testing standards. Models are available with auto or manual ranging and non-contact voltage detection. Clamp-on True RMS multimeters measure AC/DC current up to 1000A and include functions for resistance, continuity, capacitance, frequency, duty cycle, temperature, and diode test.

Southwire voltage testers are available with removable remote indicator, LED indication, and audible indication. UL listed models offer up to 600V detection ranges and up to Cat IV safety ratings. Cable continuity status testers are available with removable remote indicator, and LED and additional audible indication of continuity and polarity. The detachable remote allows cables and wires to be tested after installation. A data/video cable tester, with easy-to-interpret LED display, detects issues with network and coaxial cables.

Southwire digital multimeters and testers are priced from $28.50 and have two or five-year warranties, depending on model.
