The LT83A is a basic classic style multimeter at a great price. It’s a manual ranging meter that includes common HVAC/R electrical parameters. Add our optional detachable test lead set, and the LT83A works with our accessory heads to test non-electrical parameters too. The LT83A meter measures voltage, resistance, amps, continuity and more. Test leads store in the meter body along with the tilt stand and magnetic hanger. The body is constructed of durable ABS plastic and a blue backlight makes the large LCD even more visible. It’s a good, solid meter and a real value.
The LT83A is a manual ranging DMM that measures volts, amps, resitance, continuity, batteries 1.5 volts and under, and has a diode test. Use the MIN/MAX function to record highs and lows. It’s easy to operate and with our deluxe silicone lead set model ADK7 (optional), works with Fieldpiece accessory head test instruments.
Works with Fieldpiece Accessory Heads
There is a Fieldpiece accessory head available for just about any job. There are heads to measure temperature, superheat, subcooling, RH%, wet bulb, dew point, vacuum (microns of mercury), manometer (inches of water column), amps AC&DC, high voltage, CO, %CO2, air velocity, and many more. Simply purchase an ADK7 Deluxe Silicone Lead Kit and measure more parameters with your LT 83A and corresponding accessory head instruments.
The continuity beeper tells you if a circuit is open or closed.
Using optional detachable test leads and accessory head amp clamp ACH4 in line, read 0-400 amps directly on your meter.
Microamps DC - Flame Rectification Tests
The most common ‘no heat” call has to do with a malfunctioning flame sensing diode. Simply turn the meter to microamps DC, hook up, and see if the flame sensing rod is functioning properly.
Optional - Silicone Leads with Detachable Probe Tips
Because the wire insulation is silicone, the leads stay flexible in cold weather and will not melt if bumped by a soldering iron. When testing electrical circuits with two hands, there is a risk that a careless mistake may complete a circuit through your body and potentially cause death or injury. Use the either probe clip on rubber boot to connect and firmly hold the V lead in place, detach the COM probe tip, connect an alligator lead tip to COM and ground, and perform a one-hand test more easily than most meters on the market. Built-in lead storage makes it easy to keep everything together from job to job.
Tilt Stand and Magnetic Hanger
One thing we hear from technicians every day is how much they enjoy the magnetic hanger because it keeps the meter out of the way while testing. The LT17A includes the magnet and a tilt stand to give you a choice in the way you want to use it.
Bright Blue Backlight
Easily read the display in overcast conditions or in dimly lit areas.
Record the minimum or maximum reading during a measurement. To exit the MIN/MAX function, hold the button for more than 2 seconds
Rugged ABS case with rubber boot.
Classic design that still fits naturally in your hand.
Auto power-off (APO) to conserve battery life.
