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 DT4221 is a pocket-sized digital multimeter designed specifically for electrical work requiring optimal safety, with ±0.5% DC V accuracy and wide 40Hz to 1kHz AC V bandwidth. CAT IV 300 V, CAT III 600 V Key Features • Achieving a high level of safety in a compact body and lightweight design • Resistance and diode testing functions omitted by design in pursuit of added safety (DT4221) • Voltage detection function (DT4221) • Robust design capable of withstanding a drop from a height of 1 m • Test leads conveniently wrap around the back • ±0.5% DC V basic accuracy, wide 40 Hz to 1 kHz AC V frequency characteristics • Low-pass filter cuts high harmonics (when measuring inverter fundamental waveforms) • Broad -10 (14°F) to 50°C (122°F) operating temperature range • Display backlight
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.
Rear probe connections for superior screen visibility and easy storage
Since this design keeps cords from covering up the screen during measurement, you can read values at a glance. After use, probes can be stored on the rear of the instrument, facilitating a smooth start to the next measurement job.
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. Despite a compact body, the DT4221 can be used to measure voltage at distribution panels.
