high torque/weight ratio -No effect of stray magnetic field because of strong -unidirectional field of the instrument. -Has a built-in eddy current damping due to its non-magnetic -conducting core consisting of copper or aluminum -Capable of measuring voltage, current and resistance LIMITATION -As it is, it can be used only for dc measurements -The instrument is relatively costlier as compared to moving iron instruments -The jewelled bearings wear out and cause change in calibration. RECTIFIER INSTRUMENTS useful for the measurement of ac currents and voltages of radio and communication circuits in the audio frequency range by converting them into a unidirectional dc. Then, these are measured using the high sensitivity D A rsonval-type moving coil (PMMC) COMPONENTS OF MULTIMETER -Balanced bridge amplifier coupled to a D Arsonval type of PMMC indicating meter s uitable to measuring dc inputs. -Input attenuator or range switch to limit the input voltage to the desired valu e. -Rectifier unit to convert the ac input voltage to proportional dc voltage. -Internal battery which is operational in resistance measurement -Function switch to select the desired measurement range available in the instru ment.
