TPI 275 True RMS Digital Clamp Meter, Up to 400 AC/DC Amp

 TPI 275 True RMS Digital Clamp Meter, Up to 400 AC/DC Amp

275 Clamp-On Tester with True RMS Digital Multimeter and 11,000 Count Display

The TPI 275 digital clamp meter is a true RMS sensing, manual- and auto-ranging multimeter for measuring current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, and frequency in electrical testing applications. It has a clamp that measures AC and DC current to 400 amp. The clamp has two jaws that can close around an electrical conductor up to 35mm (1.37″) in diameter to measure current without touching or interrupting the circuit. A set of test leads is included for measuring DC current to 1,100 microamperes, AC and DC voltage to 600V, resistance to 110 megohms, voltage frequency to 110mHz (megahertz), and capacitance to 110,000 microfarads.

The meter comes with a K-type thermocouple probe for measuring temperature to 1,000 degrees F. Its relative function allows a measurement to be set as a reference value, and it displays the subsequent measurements as positive or negative deviations from that value. The peak hold function records the maximum measurement of a current surge. The maximum/minimum function records the highest and lowest readings in a session to track a sudden increase or decrease in readings. To aid documentation of readings and capture readings in tight spaces, the data hold function keeps the most recent reading on the display after disconnecting from the circuit. An audible continuity sensor confirms that the circuit conducts electricity, and a diode check detects whether a circuit’s diodes are working properly.

The meter’s inrush current function analyzes the surge current at the startup of motors and other inductive loads to provide accurate, stable measurements. A non-contact voltage detector senses voltage without making contact with the circuit. The meter has a rotary switch to select the property to measure, and an 11,000-count LCD that shows readings numerically and in a 41-segment bar graph. The unit operates on a single 9V battery, and turns off automatically after 30 minutes of non-use to conserve battery life. It has a low-battery indicator that signals when the battery needs to be replaced. Clamp meters are typically used by electrical engineers to measure properties of electrical current without physically touching or disconnecting the conductor.

Argus Mi-TIC Series NFPA Compliant Thermal Imaging Camera

Argus Mi-TIC Series NFPA Compliant Thermal Imaging Camera

The Argus ® Mi-TIC (MI-320-1-NFPA, MI-329-1-NFPA, MI-320-3-NFPA, MI-329-3-NFPA) is the world’s smallest NFPA 1801 certified high resolution thermal imager for fire fighting applications. The camera provides a crystal clear image with a superb dynamic range: you can clearly view extremely high temperatures without whiteout, and at the same time still see very low temperature objects, which is ideal for casualty searches.

Every Argus ® Mi-TIC is supplied with a unique dual use desktop/ in-truck charger station which securely retains and charges both the thermal imager and a spare battery. The charger stations can be daisy-chained together, up to a maximum of 6 units.


Weighing approximately 750g (26 oz) the Argus ® Mi-TIC is a small format thermal imager that can be easily and comfortably held in the palm of your hand. Unlike many thermal imagers, the Argus ® Mi-TIC design allows it to be worn in multiple ways – in the hand, inside a pocket, clipped outside a pocket, clipped to a lanyard or hung around the neck.


With a thumb operated green on/off button and superb start up time of 5 seconds, the Argus ® Mi-TIC is simple to use.


The Argus ® MI-TIC has Class I, Division 2 Non Incendive certification. The use of Lithium Iron Phosphate technology ensures the Argus ® Mi-TIC delivers 2 hours of battery life over 1,000s of cycles. They are inherently safe due to the use of patented nanophosphate ® technology.


The NFPA 1801:2013 standard has been created to specify design, performance, testing and certification requirements for thermal imaging cameras used by the fire service during emergency incident operations.

The testing is comprehensive! Including repeated drop tests, display abrasion tests, heat resistance tests and a lot more to ensure the camera is as durable as it needs to be for use by the fire service.

Image quality is checked after every single test, so fire fighters can be confident that there will be a usable thermal image when they need it most.


The most important thing to us here at argus ® is that fire fighters are equipped with products that will not let them down and put them in danger.

There are a few simple things you should check before purchasing a thermal imaging camera.

Can the camera display the temperatures you need to see?

Domestic fires can reach temperatures over 1,800°F and even though firefighters won’t be physically exposed to these temperatures, they will often use the thermal imaging camera to view fully developed fires at these temperatures without actually being in the ‘hot zone’ itself. That’s why argus ® fire cameras have been designed to display temperatures up to 2,000°F.

Can the camera withstand the temperature you need to?

It is common for fire fighters to be exposed to temperatures over 185°F, so it’s critical that your camera can stand the heat as well, especially the battery technology. Normal Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are not certified for operation above 140°F, whereas Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are. Exposing an ordinary Li-ion battery to high temperatures can cause it to explode and cause serious injury. This is not a risk we are willing to take.

Will the camera be easy to use?

Quick and easy operation in high pressure situations is essential for the safe and effective use of thermal imaging cameras.

It’s important to consider how they may be operated with a gloved hand in low visibility. It’s also important to ensure the camera effectively ‘gets out of the way’ when it’s not being used.

The argus ® Mi-TIC has one-button and three-button versions to ensure simple operation. We also have a retractable lanyard and pocket clip so that it will never hamper a firefighter’s movement.

argus ® fire mode displays simple and unmistakable colors to show different temperatures for more instinctive and safe decision making.

Does the price seem too good to be true?

If the price seems too good to be true – it probably is. It costs a little bit more to ensure cameras are suitable for use in the fire fighting environment. Lower cost cameras are often designed primarily for different applications, such as industrial facility inspection or building diagnostics – they are often great tools, just not for fire fighters.
