Snap-on Offers Handheld Circuit Tester, Multimeter

Snap-on is looking to make AC/DC, resistance and amperage testing easier with its latest tool—the EECT900 Multi-Probe Ultra.

Snap-on is looking to make AC/DC, resistance and amperage testing easier with its latest tool—the EECT900 Multi-Probe Ultra. The tool has both a circuit tester and digital multimeter in one handheld device.

“Tracking down an electrical problem without the right equipment can consume much of a technician’s day,” said Dave Brekke, Snap-on product manager. “Our advanced multi-probe tester combines circuit tester functions with a multimeter, so if the vehicle or equipment you’re testing has an electrical problem, this tool can locate it.”

The large, rear-facing LCD navigation screen on the Multi-Probe is easy to read and offers a color-coded menu, Snap-on said. Data is displayed by unique color for easy recall of the mode in use – purple indicates AC voltage, orange DC voltage, yellow amperage and white represents ohms.

An AC meter displays peak-to-peak, pulse width, duty cycle, frequency and TRMS simultaneously to keep techs in the know about the job at hand. Additionally, circuit breaker protected power-up and built-in vehicle battery status check helps technicians stay informed before diagnosing circuits. The tool also provides audible smart-tones to indicate positive or negative tip readings, Snap-on said.

The Multi-Probe Ultra comes with a 23-foot cable to connect to the vehicle battery and move around, checking distant circuits such as brake lights and trailer terminal connections, Snap-on said.
