Southwire Digital CAT III Multimeters, Under $50

Southwire Multimeters

Just announced Southwire will be launching 2 new digital multimeters that pack a lot of professional features at a very aggressive price.

The step up auto-ranging 10041N ($45) is rated up to CAT III 600V, similar features but adds non-contact AC detector, frequency, temperature and duty cycle. For professionals doing mostly residential these meters may check all the boxes. For commercial electricians where higher voltage and/or CAT IV is required clearly these meter are not going to be the right solution for you.
