SparkFun Digital Multimeter

Description

This is for all those starving students that need to buy their first good, low-cost multimeter. This meter has really impressive overall feel for being so low-cost. We’ve played with a lot of cheap-o DMMs and found that this unit’s function selector has a great, solid, clicking feel to it. This unit has good continuity (rare for low-cost units), and decent probes. 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!

Note: This meter works well for measuring very small amounts of current. Check here for a tutorial. Replacement fuses can be found below.

This multimeter does all the standard functions of lower cost meters, but here are the main reasons we like this multimeter:

  • Loud continuity sound (many meters do not even have continuity)
  • Current/Voltage sense
  • Battery included
  • Very solid clicking feel to the function selector
  • Decent quality probes (not great, but they’ll hold up for years)
  • Strong connection from meter to probe

Things that this DMM is lacking:

  • No auto-power off
  • No auto-ranging
  • No frequency measurement

Features:

  • DC Voltage – 200mV/2V/20V/200V/600V
  • AC Voltage – 200V/600V
  • DC Current – 200uA/20mA/200mA/10A
  • Resistance – 0 to 20M Ohm
  • Continuity Buzzer
  • Diode Test
  • Max display: 1999
