Southwire Multimeters

Just announced Southwire will be launching 2 new digital multimeters that pack a lot of professional features at a very aggressive price. Starting with the manual ranging 10031S ($25) which is rated up to CAT III 300V, AC/DC, includes test leads and the same tough housing that can take a 6’ drop like all their other higher end units.
