Howdy Mike:
Just a reminder......if you must use a Simpson 260 to measure your HV levels, don't forget to use the Simpson accessory HV probe. The DC one is red colored whereas the AC version is yellow. I have one of each but there does not seem to be a model # on either.
As for a cheaper meter to measure 5 KV, I consider even the Simpson 260 to be a cheap meter!  Even the Simpson 260 used with the HV probe can be a widow maker if improperly used!..................

Is there a list of lower cost VOM's that can measure 5KV. I know of the Simpson 260 (version 5 and older only) that can ..... are there any others to keep an eye out for??
