The ACT/6000 is exceptionally tough and compact, this digital autoranging multimeter, exclusive to ACT, offers great functionality and ease of use. CATIV Rated.

ACT proudly introduce the all new ACT/6000 alarm engineers digital multimeter. This fantastic meter, exclusive to ACT, incorporates many special features making it the perfect choice for the security industry.

Fully autoranging

Every measurement range is fully autoranging. Simply switch on the instrument and start testing, leaving hands free for holding probes.

Voltage measurement

Both AC and DC voltage measurement is possible with the instrument autoranging to match the voltage at the test probes. Voltage measurements up to 1000V are permitted without damage to the instrument.

Current measurement

Three ranges are provided for current measurement of either AC or DC current from 0.1μA to 10A. Fused inputs protect both the user and the instrument in the case of excess current.

Resistance, continuity & diode testing

Resistance can be measured directly on the ohms range from 0Ω up to 60MΩ. A continuity buzzer range is also available for checking low resistance between two points. The buzzer sounding if the resistance is less than 20Ω. Additionally, a diode range exists for testing forward and reverse bias operation of transistors and diodes.

Data hold

This allows a displayed result to be held on the display until needed, rather than trying to remember a measurement. The result will be held until the HOLD button is pressed again, or until the unit switches off.


When making current measurements the mode function allows the selection of AC and DC measurement.

Separate battery & fuse compartment

This means that both battery and fuses can be replaced without opening the main instrument body and breaking or invalidating the calibration seal.

Simple operation

The ACT/6000 is easy to navigate with large buttons and central dial. Simple in use with straight forward options to select from the large high contrast 6000 count backlit display with high speed analogue bargraph.

Armoured casing

Encased within a tough rubber holster, the ACT/6000 is well protected especially when being used in a industrial setting.
