BE49 digital multimeter

Robust digital multimeter with seven measuring functions and a fold-out foot

Multifunction measuring meter for all relevant measured variables

The battery-powered digital multimeter BE49 should be part of every well-assorted toolbox. With seven different measuring functions for all relevant measured variables the multimeter which is equally compact and robust covers a broad range of common application options in the DIY, handicraft, hobby and motor vehicle sectors. Whether you use it for professional activities with electricity, the repairing of household appliances, or for private mechanical work on your car – any tasks involving measurements benefit from the valuable services of the BE49 where installation and error diagnostics are concerned.

Full equipment for power, voltage and continuity testing

With the BE49, DC and AC voltage measurements, direct current and alternating current measurements, resistance measurements, diode tests as well as continuity tests can be carried out.

The measured values are shown in a clearly legible fashion on the large LC display with optional background illumination. Thanks to the practical hold function, the measured values remain readable even after you have completed the measurement process. When you carry out a continuity test, an acoustic signal indicates a short circuit or a closed circuit and therefore speeds up your work progress, since you do not have to keep your eyes on the display during the measurement. A fold-out foot that is integrated on the rear of the device allows you to keep both hands free for performing your measurement tasks. In this way, the measuring device can be put down onto an even surface in a position that makes it easy for you to read off the measurement results. The automatic switch-off mechanism of the device (auto power off) which responds after the device has been inactive for 15 minutes preserves the battery and is a practical feature.

Particularly durable and powerful multimeter

To ensure safe working within building installations (stationary loads with non-pluggable connection, distributor connections, integral units in the distributor), the digital multimeter BE49 complies with measuring category CAT III 600 V. In addition to the especially durable impact-proof plastic housing, the IP40 dust-protected BE49 impresses with its double insulation of measuring device and measuring lines in compliance with insulation protection class II. Ideal conditions to carry out measurements safely and reliably even in rough environments.
