The digital multimeter (DMM) is an essential tool in every electronic enthusiasts arsenal. The SparkFun Digital Multimeterhoweveris not your average multimeterit features a loud continuity soundcurrent/voltage senseand quality probes. You can use the multimeter to measure DC and AC voltageDC currentresistancecontinuityand test diodes. With this version we’ve done away with the bright flashy colors that can get us into trouble and gone with a niceneutral gray. This multimeter should provoke no strong feelings one way or the otherwe know this because our guts say “maybe.”
This isn’t your expensiveflashy type of multimeterthis is for all those starving students that need to buy their first goodlow-cost digital multimeter. This meter doesn’t have the ability to auto-power offit isn’t capable of auto-rangingand it won’t be able to measure frequency. Howeverwith this multimeter you WILL be able to measure DC Voltage from 200mV to 600VAC Voltage from 200V and 600vDC Current between 200uA to 10Aand Resistance from 0 to 20M Ohm. We even left a meter on to test the battery life - it lasted more than 170 hours (7 days) before the included 9V gave out!
