thanks kung for reply might consider these meters as they come in a set of three or a megger 1552 undecided yet and with socket and see you get a few added extras as well if you pay a bit more :)

There not bad but mine is the KT61 good tester and ive seen them for about £300 there are a couple of little snags :-
1 no pfc reading so need to calc
2 doesnt have no-trip loop test so again calcs
3 500v dc fixed IR test so no selv/pelv
apart from these snags its still a good,small,cheap multi but is worth paying few quid more for the KT64.

Kung.

I also have the KT61, it will do a no-trip loop test but will only give you a reading of <1ohm, 1ohm or >1ohm, so a waste of time really. thinking of upgrading my meter soon.
