Digital Multimeter
A multimeter , also known as a volt/ohm meter or VOM, is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit. A typical multimeter may include features such as the ability to measure voltage, current and resistance. Multimeters may use analog or digital circuits analog multimeters and digital multimeters (often abbreviated DMM or DVOM.)
