Multimeters

Overview

This course consists of five modules designed to provide training for persons working with electrical or electronic test equipment. These lessons demonstrate and explain how to use both a digital and an analog multimeter. During these lessons, voltage, resistance, current, capacitance, and frequency are measured. The final lesson also describes some of the more common features of a digital multimeter.

Objectives

  • Identify and describe the display area of a digital multimeter.
  • Identify and describe the function switch on a digital multimeter.
  • Identify and describe the leads/jacks on a digital multimeter.
  • Adjust the mechanical zero of an analog multimeter.
  • Interpret a reading on the voltage scale of an analog multimeter.
  • Interpret a reading on the resistance scale of an analog multimeter.
  • Given an expected measurement, set the function and range switches of an analog multimeter.
  • Adjust the zero on the ohms scale of an analog multimeter.
  • Identify the steps in inspecting a multimeter.
  • List the steps you should take before using a multimeter.
  • Define continuity and perform a continuity check.
  • Use a multimeter to measure resistance.
  • Measure AC voltage using a multimeter.
  • Measure DC voltage using a multimeter.
  • Use a multimeter to measure current.
  • Use a multimeter to measure frequency.
  • Use a multimeter to measure capacitance.
  • Describe and use the hold button on a digital multimeter.
  • Describe and use the relative button on a digital multimeter.
  • Describe and use the range button on a digital multimeter.
  • Describe and use the min/max button on a digital multimeter.
  • Explain when the shift button is used.
