What is a multimeter?

Before we know how to use a multimeter,we must understand a safety information about multimeter.

To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury,PLEASE follow these guideline

  • Do not use the meterĀ  or test lead if they appear damage or not operating properly.
  • Always use proper terminal,switch position and range for measurements.
  • Verify the meter`s operation by measuring a known voltage.
  • Do not apply more than the rated voltage,between terminals or any terminal and earth ground.
  • Use caution with voltage above 30 VAC rms,42 VAC peak or 60 VDC.It pose a shock hazard.
  • Disconnect circuit power supply and discharge all high-voltage capacitor before testing RESISTANCE,CONTINUITY,DIODE OR CAPACITANCE.
  • Do not use the meter around explosive gas and vapor
  • When using test lead,keep your finger behind the finger guard.
  • Avoid working alone
  • Use only the replacement fuse specified.
  • Check the test leadĀ  for continuity before use.Do not use if the reading are high or noisy. read more
