When you buy a multimeter, you get a high-performance, multifunction measuring instrument. This is suitable for use as a voltage and current measuring instrument. As a rule, it can be switched from direct to alternating current parameter measurement, and you can also use it as a resistance measuring instrument. Additional functions are often also possible when it comes to multimeter operation. The measurement parameters are automatically detected and selected via the assignment of the sockets. The function keys are easy to operate and the readings are clearly presented on the display.
Whether you use the multimeter to measure voltage or other measuring values, this instrument is essential in the electronics sector due to its wide range of applications. It is used both in professional electrical engineering and by home hobbyists.
Automatic detection and selection of measurement parameters via socket assignment
Easy operation via function keys and large illuminated display
With true root mean square measurement TRMS
Simply work safer.
All electrical measurements become child's play with the testo Digital Multimeter. However, operation may be somewhat more complex, depending on the requirements in terms of electrical measuring tasks. The comprehensive measuring range enables testing of the current strength up to the μA range. Regardless of the measuring value, the instrument provides extremely accurate results. Amongst other things, the Digital Multimeter is suitable for use as a:
current and voltage tester,
resistance measuring instrument,
capacitance and frequency measuring instrument,
temperature measuring instrument (with optional adapter).
The current strength is measured in amperes and indicates what electrical charge flows through the defined area in a given period of time. Instruments such as the clamp meter are used for the measurement, or the multimeter is employed to measure direct and alternating current.
Measuring current with the multimeter:
The measuring range is set (start in the high measuring range if the values are unknown),
the electric circuit is activated and opened,
the measuring cables are applied and the electric circuit is closed again,
the ampere value is measured and shown on the multimeter display.
You can use the Digital Multimeter to measure current, or also to test voltage and resistance. The level of innovation of the Testo instruments is impressive, thanks to a high standard of reliability and accuracy. You do not need to first select the sockets and then the required measurement function. Instead, the instrument already detects the relevant measurement parameter via the socket assignment. Any possible incorrect settings, which always entail a risk, are excluded.
Testo Digital Multimeters feature a simple structure, yet are futuristic in functionality. Instead of the usual rotary knob, there are function keys on the handy measuring instrument which can be conveniently operated with one hand. The large, illuminated display makes it easier for you to read out the measured values.
voltage range goes up to 1,000 volts, frequency range up to 30 MHz, capacitance up to 60,000 µF. These values apply to the testo 760-3 instrument which is qualified for use in the industrial sector. Here, the multimeter with integrated low-pass filter is for example used for measurements on large electrical systems.
With the Testo multimeters, electrical parameters are supplemented by the ability to measure temperatures as well. For this measurement, you attach a thermocouple adapter, and the temperature probe, available separately.
high operational reliability due to automatic detection,
exclusion of incorrect settings,
suitability for a large number of electrical measurement functions,
large, illuminated display.
As a useful all-round instrument, a Testo digital multimeter supports you in all electrical measuring tasks. It automatically detects the values and provides you with accurate data and improved reliability, regardless of the area of application. Determination of the true root mean square means users are always aware of the exact situation in the electronics area.
Before starting a measurement, users should familiarize themselves with the instrument, and check the measuring cables and sockets. You can control the multimeter reasily via the user-friendly, illuminated keys allow for one handed operation. The low weight of 340 grams is also an important advantage. With Testo multimeters, the integrated technology and operational reliability are perfectly attuned to one another: numerous instrument functions, large measuring range, high level of accuracy, safety certifications - TÜV; CSA; CE.
