Selecting a Multimeter Suitable for Maintenance and Troubleshooting

  • Uncategorized

A multimeter is one of the most important tools that a technician or electrician has. It integrates common testing functions in one tool, making it not only handy for commercial, residential or industrial use but also for field applications. Multimeters allow you to measure resistance, current, voltage, capacitance, test for continuity and diodes. Some devices even offer measuring sound pressure and temperature.

If you are planning to get a multimeter or upgrade your old device, you might want to consider devices from Fluke Test Equipment. These multimeters are digital and microprocessor controlled for excellent accuracy and reliability.
