True-RMS Multimeter Includes VFD Mode

FLIR’s FLIR DM66 electrical and field-service true-root mean square (True-RMS) multimeter targets commercial electricians, automation field service, and electronics technicians installing and maintaining electrical and electronic systems. Equipped with variable frequency drive (VFD) mode and a comprehensive feature set, the DM66 is described as being easy to use, durable, and offers long-term stability and quality for extended field use.


Compact and ergonomic, the instrument offers intuitive on-screen menu navigation and accessible buttons that allow for one-handed operation. The flashing backlight and audible indication eases the task of checking wiring connections and switching operation in noisy work environments.

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.


DMM test functions include low-impedance (LoZ) mode, temperature (Type-K thermocouple), and extended voltage measurement range up to 600V. It can measure ac/dc voltage, current (A, mA, μA), frequency, resistance and continuity, diode, capacitance, and temperature.


For non-contact voltage detection, the DM66 features a visual indicator and audible beep tones proportional to the field strength. One can use attachable test leads for contact voltage detection, allowing for a more precise indication of live wires.


The DM66 is CAT IV-300V and CAT III-600V safety category rated, IP40 ingress protection rated and 2-meter (6.6 feet) drop-test rated. For more information, checkout the DM66 datasheet
