Product Details

PM55A Shirt-Pocket Precision DMM with AutoTect & VolTect

The Amprobe PM55A is the ultimate pocket sized multimeter. Being 20 mm think and less than 85 g with full functionality offering AC and DC voltage measurements.

Features and Benefits

10.2mm thick and weighs less than 80g
Measures ac and dc voltage to 600V, ac and dc current to 2000μA, resistance to 6 MΩ, capacitance to 2000μF, frequency to 30kHz, diode test and continuity with beeper
AutoTect™ feature directs the meter to know if it is measuring ac volts, dc volts or resistance with no user interface required
The AutoTect™ feature has lower input impedence which zeros out ghost voltages
Meter includes VolTect™, which is a built-in, non-contact voltage detector
Complete user protection with full safety ratings of CAT III 300 V, CAT II 600V
Large 4000 count LCD screen
Data hold
Auto power off


The AutoTect feature automatically selects between AC and DC voltage, or resistance measurements based on the test point to which the leads are connected. Fully auto ranging, this meter offers nine different measurement functions please features that are normally found in more expensive meters.

Digital Display and Safety

The oversized digital display uses large digits and unit icons for easy readability. The PM55A is fully rated to CAT III 300 V, CAT II 600 V ad is UL listed.


This instrument is fitted with fixed test leads. Use of an alternative instrument is advised where GS38 compliant leads (fused test leads) are required.

Supplied with

Protective silicon holster, attached test leads, battery, deluxe carry case and instruction manual.
