A multimeter is used to make various electrical measurements, such as AC and DC voltage, AC and DC current, and resistance. It is called a multimeter because it combines the functions of a voltmeter, ammeter, and ohmmeter. Multimeters may also have other functions, such as diode and continuity tests. Digital multimeter give more accurate reading then analog multimeter. It is also easy to read the measured value.
It is called digital because the scale reading is in digital scale in the display. The turn knob function is to choose the variable test from testing direct current (DC) value to testing the transistor. This can save multimeter battery life.TYPE OF MULTIMETER There are 2 type of multimeter that is always used when measuring electrical device . It is cause by human error when reading the scale. LCD Display is used to display the measured value from the testing. Firstly. After that is the AC Voltage Range. It is the place to connect the black test probe. HARDWARE OF MULTIMETER Multimeter has many component to do many electrical circuit testing. It is used to measured DC voltage in the electric or the electronic circuit. analog and digital multimeter. Analog multimeter – Analog multimeter have a analog scale. the function is to test the . the purpose is to connect the test lead when use for measure 10A current range. Digital multimeter – Digital multimeter is the latest type of multimeter that is used. After that is the DC Voltage Range . The Off switch function is to turn off the multimeter when not in used. It is easy when reading the scale. So it give more accurate reading. The last one is 10A jack. Another component for the multimeter is test lead/probe that is act as electric conductor for taking measurement from electronic device. V Ώ mA jack is the place to connect the red test probe. The first is COM jack. There are three jack in the multimeter. Analog multimeter is less accurate because there is error when reading the scale.
To make sure the multimeter in the best performance we must take care of the multimeter. ohmmeter and voltmeter. The function of DC Current Range and 10A Current Range is to measured the value of current flow in the electrical component. Do not store the multimeter in hot and wet place. hFE Check to test the complex semiconductor current. we must replace the battery in the multimeter in every one year . voltage and resistance . Multimeter cannot be used to take extremely high measurement MAINTENANCE To make sure the multimeter in the good condition we must do the maintenance.AC voltage in the electronic circuit. The multimeter is also equip with many testers such as Transistor Tester. PERFORMANCE Multimeter performance is depend on how it is used and what quantity is measured. Do not over used the multimeter to measure something it can degrade the multimeter performance ADVANTAGE Multimeter can be used to take many type of measurement from electrical device. . Diode tester. The ohm range in the multimeter is used for measure the resistance in the electronic component.The type of maintenance is . It is more easy to take measurement from the conventional device such as ammeter. DISADVANTAGE Multimeter is a sensitive equipment. So it has some disadvantage.
