Ok I know that we've revisited this subject before but i need help quick.My employer is moving me to another plant and wants me to leave some tools behinde.I'm using a fluke 36 clamp on and a fluke 11 multimeter at the old plant,they use fluke T5-600 meters at the new plant.Is there a single meter made that can read up to 600 amps with a clamp on like a powermeter and into the mega ohms like a benchmeter?I always seem to have the wrong meter for the job im doing.Think I'll go get my old meters Monday if I cant find one as the T5 while nice just dosen't come close to what I need.Thanks

Try fluke.com.
We use an 89IV, which has been replaced by the 180. It has lot's of nice functions. Add the 80i-600A current clamp, or for True Power, add the 80i-kW..
