Also called a Volt-Ohm-Meter (VOM). A measuring instrument that can measure different ranges of voltage, current, and resistance. A multimeter can have an analog needle indicator or a digital read out. Every sound person should own one of these and be familiar with the different measurements that can be made with it.
an instrument which can be used for measuring any one of several different electrical quantities, usually potential difference (voltage), current and resistance. The user has to select the quantity to be measured, by selecting some switch settings. mV: symbol for millivolt, 10-3
Electronic test equipment that can perform multiple tasks. Typically one capable of measuring voltage, current and resistance. More sophisticated modern digital multimeters also measure capacitance, inductance, current gain of transistors and/or anything else that can be measured electronically.
Instrument used to probe and measure electrical states in circuitry. Basic functionality includes measurement of potential in volts, resistance in ohms, and current in amps. Advanced units come with more bells and whistles, such as capacitor, diode and IC testing modes. Multimeters can be either analog (needle-type) or digital (LCD display).
A multimeter is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several functions in one unit. The most basic instruments include an ammeter, voltmeter, and ohmmeter. See the Multimeter Wikipedia entry[ edit
A multimeter or a multitester is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several functions in one unit. The most basic instruments include an ammeter, voltmeter, and ohmmeter. Analog multimeters are sometimes referred to as "volt-ohm-meters", abbreviated VOM.
You can use it to test the continuity our dodgy cabling: Set the multimeter to .)))-+ Plug 1 cable into COM and the other into V On the Ethernet cable, connect middle to middle or outside to outside. This should cause a beep. Connect middle to outside. This should be silent.
