The KEW MATE 2012RA is a TRMS digital multimeter that measures both voltage and current.

Compact and easy to use, this traditional style multimeter is supplied with a 12mm AC/DC clamp sensor. The KEW MATE 2012RA can measure AC and DC voltage up to 600V, as well as resistance up to 60MΩ. Both AC and DC current can also be measured up to 120A, in which the true RMS function can be applied to achieve greater accuracy across non-sinusoidal waveforms.

The 2012RA model features an auto-power save function, the ability to perform a diode test, as well as measuring capacitance up to 40μF.  A continuity buzzer, which provides an audible warning below 35Ω, is also present on the meter.


Because the 2012RA supports true RMS measurements, it is particularly good at providing accurate measurements in the presence of harmonics. Therefore, this meter is perfectly suited for work with photovoltaic installations, inverters, fluorescent lamps, and UPS’s. All these functionalities together make for a very versatile multimeter.
