Ridgid 37423 Micro DM-100 Digital Multimeter
RIDGID make the big, bold claim about the Micro DM-100 that "sets the new standard for troubleshooting most of the electrical problems".

Does the spec and features back this up? Here's what you get when you unzip it from its soft carry case.

First off, it's robust thanks to the generous rubbery housing. This contributes to its ability to withstand a knock or two on the job site, being drop resistant. It's also rated IP67 against dust and water ingress.

In terms of functionality it packs plenty into its tough case.

It handles the measuring of alternating currents by allowing you to convert the signal into a direct current of equivalent value, known as "root meaning square" or RMS. The DM-100 provides True RMS.

On top of that you're able to perform 11 different electronic functions including AC/DC voltage and current, up to a huge 1000V. It even gives you temperature readouts.

All of the cables and plug-ins you need are included in the kit, along with a Type K temperature probe.
