Klein's new clamp meters and multimeters

Klein, a company that doesn't seem to do much in the way of "sittin' still," has recently released a new line-up of clamp meters and multimeters. These ten new tools (six clamp meters and four multimeters) range in capability and brawn. Only a few of them have Klein's Tough Meter designation, which comes down to a higher drop rating and a greater resistance to good old H20.

The new clamp meters (models CL110, CL210, CL310, CL600, CL700, CL800) and multimeters (MM300, MM400, MM600, MM700) are all packed to the gills with features and capabilities. There are differences though (of course, why would there be so many models if there weren't?). It would take me about three weeks to list everything here, so the links above go to a .pdf of a brochure that explains the differences in wonderful chart format. If you're into it, you can spend hours with them. Have at it.

Of the tools, the highlights are the CL600, CL700, CL800 and MM600, MM700. These are the Tough Meters. You're probably not going to drag them behind a truck, but with a fall rating of 6.5-feet, they should handle a tip off a step ladder, which is always helpful, especially when you hand the tool over to "Dropsy McClumsy, the First-Time Apprentice." I've used some of their Tough Meters in the past, and they live up to their billing.

The multimeters range in price from about $25 to $100ish. The clamp meters fall from about $50 to around $140.
