Three New Auto Ranging DMMs Offer Exceptional Price, Accuracy, and Functionality

YORBA LINDA, CA, September 25, 2008 -- &K Precision Corporation announces the addition of three new auto ranging DMMs, the Model 2705B, Model 2708B, and the Model 2709B, to its growing line of test and measurement instruments. Two of the full-featured hand-held, battery powered DMMs (Models 2708B and 2709B) offer True RMS measurements. All three feature large easy-to-read LCD displays and single-handed operation. Priced as low as $65 (Model 2705B), these excellent meters offer flexibility, accuracy and speed and are a must for every tool kit.

Value-packed features common to all three new DMMs include the following:

  • DC voltage to 1000 V
  • AC/DC current to 10 A
  • Diode test
  • Magnetic hanging strap
  • AC voltage to750 V
  • Continuity test
  • Single-handed operation
  • Drop-resistant case
  • One year warranty

The Model 2705B Auto Ranging DMM is a full-featured auto ranging DMM that combines performance, value and functionality. The 3400 count LCD can display resistance values up to 40 Mohm. The user can select between Auto and Manual Ranging. The ergonomic design allows both left and right handed users to rotate the knob while holding the meter in one hand. While one hand keeps the probe on the circuit, the other hand changes the meter’s function. This speeds up troubleshooting. With the auto-power-off feature, there is no need to worry about accidental battery consumption. Value-priced at only $65.00, the following features make this instrument a “must” for every tool kit:

  • Auto/manual ranging
  • Auto power off
  • Measures up to 10 A (AC and DC)
  • Resistance to 40 Mohm 

The Model 2708B is a full-featured auto ranging, True RMS DMM that combines performance, value and functionality. The 3400 count LCD has a 34 segment bar graph that simulates analog responsiveness by updating at a rate of 12 times per second. The Model 2708B can measure resistance values up to 34 Mohm. The user can select between Auto and Manual Ranging. The ergonomic design allows both left and right handed users to rotate the knob while holding the meter in one hand. While one hand keeps the probe on the circuit, the other hand changes the meter’s function. This speeds up troubleshooting. The auto-power-off feature eliminates the need to worry about accidental battery consumption. Value-priced at only $95.00, the following features make this instrument a “must” for every tool kit:

  • True RMS
  • Resistance to 34 Mohm
  • One handed operation
  • Auto/manual ranging

The Model 2709B is a full-featured auto ranging, True RMS DMM that combines performance, value and functionality. The 6600 count LCD has a green back light that allows the meter to be used in dimly lit environments. The Model 2709B can measure resistance values up to 66 Mohm and capacitance to 66 uF. The user can select between Auto and Manual Ranging. The ergonomic design allows both left and right handed users to rotate the knob while holding the meter in one hand. While one hand keeps the probe on the circuit, the other hand changes the meter’s function. This speeds up troubleshooting. The auto-power-off feature eliminates the need to worry about accidental battery consumption. Value-priced at only $99.00, the following features make this instrument a “must” for every tool kit:

  • True RMS
  • Resistance to 66 Mohm
  • Capacitance to 66 uF
  • Frequency counter to 66 MHz
  • Large easy-to-read LCD with back light
  • Single-handed operation
  • Auto/manual ranging

Compact (165mmH x 75mmW x 42.5mmD), and light weight (10.3oz),
all three units are available for immediate delivery. Priced at $65 for the Model 2705B, $95.00 for the Model 2708B, and $99.00 for the Model 2709B, these meters come complete with 9 V battery, one set of test leads, one spare fuse, instruction manual, and B+K Precision’s one year warranty. A complete line of optional accessories is also available.
