What is an Amprobe used for?

What is an Amprobe used for: With the correct electrical equipment working just as they are supposed to, you can be able to measure most electrical units perfectly. Other than the multimeters, the Amprobe clamp meters can also be just as good when it comes to measuring a number of electrical components. If you have one […]

What is a True RMS Multimeter?

As much as a digital multimeter may be outstanding when it comes to measuring current, voltage, and resistance, there is more to it than just these. In most cases, multimeters will only provide an alternating current waveform that can then be calibrated as RMS or rather Root Mean Square. I hope this article will be […]

How do you Check Voltage on a Multimeter?

As stated earlier on, the accurate voltage measurement is a must-have feature on any multimeter. In order for you to do this conveniently, you should first power off the device completely. So as to be certain that there is no electrical current flowing through it, you should also discharge any capacitors present on the circuit.Having […]

What are the Functions of a Multimeter?

When they were just starting to be used, multimeters were designed to measure voltage, current, and resistance. Over the years, however, they have become easier and more accurate to use while at the same time be able to measure a lot of different electrical components. Let’s have a look at What are the Functions of a […]

How do we use a Megger?

Other than a multimeter, a megger is another device whose use is definitely appreciated by any lover of electronics. A megger is also known as an ohmmeter and it comes in handy when you want to measure the insulation resistance of electrical machinery or system. The megger can be mechanically operated using the hand crank DC […]

How Do You Read ohms on a Multimeter?

Besides voltage and current, resistance is another electrical unit that multimeters should be able to measure. As a matter of fact, if your multimeter is flawed when it comes to measuring either of these three, then you should probably get a replacement of the same. Ohms is simply measuring resistance and here’s how you should go […]

What is an Auto-ranging meter?

We have already established that there are two major classifications when it comes to multimeters and also the fact that the digital multimeters are the best that you could possibly get.  Well, something else that you need to know about the digital multimeters is that they can either be the auto-ranging ones or the manual […]

What is a Multimeter tool?

If you know the tiniest bit about electronics, then you may probably have heard about the multimeter tool. A multimeter tool is used to measure basic electrical units such as the current, voltage and resistance to more complexities such as frequency. In some cases, the multimeter tool may come with added bonuses such as having the […]
