The Hioki DT4200 Digital Multimeter Series consist of a complete lineup of 9 models ranging from professional to industrial to pocket meters, delivering a super fast response rate and safety features that take electrical testing to a higher level. The DT4252 is a digital multimeter designed specifically for general purpose testing, with ±0.3% DC V accuracy, direct current input and wide 40 Hz to 1kHz bandwidth.
• ±0.3% DC V basic accuracy, wide 40 Hz to 1 kHz AC V frequency characteristics
• Low-pass filter (100 Hz/ 500 Hz) cuts high harmonics
• Includes multiple measurement functions such as capacitance, and frequency
• USB communications function supports PC measurements (optional)
• Broad -10 (14°F) to 50°C (122°F) operating temperature range
CAT IV 600 V, CAT III 1000 V
Video on how to use digital multimeters
This video introduces how to use the DT4200 series of digital testers as well as some of the instrument’s featured functionality. Hioki testers are engineered to help professional electricians do their jobs safely and quickly.
Measurement data can be downloaded to, reviewed on, and saved to a computer.
If you connect the DT4252 to a computer with the optional Communication Package DT4900-01, you can graph data stored in the instrument’s internal memory and display measurement results in real time on the computer. In addition, displayed measured values can be saved (in text format).
*The computer and multimeter are electrically isolated by means of optical communications so that data can be sent with peace of mind.
True RMS measurement for accurate measurement of even distorted current waveforms
Digital multimeters implement two types of measurement: mean-value measurement and true RMS measurement. The two methods yield significantly different measurement results for current waveforms, which are often distorted. For accurate measurement, it is necessary to use an instrument with true RMS capability.
Designed and manufactured in Japan to ensure high quality and guaranteed with a 3-year warranty for peace of mind
All development, design, and manufacturing processes for almost all Hioki digital multimeters are carried out at our Head Office in Nagano Prefecture. Some of the industry’s most advanced technological capabilities enable us to deliver products of the highest possible quality.
Safe measurement requires use of an instrument that suits the measurement location.
To ensure operators’ ability to use measuring instruments safely, IEC 61010 classifies the locations in which instruments are used into a series of safety-based measurement categories (ranging from CAT II to CAT IV). Using an instrument that does not satisfy the required safety level can lead to an electrical accident.
