Digital Multimeters

A digital multimeter is a device that provides measurements of circuit parameters such as voltage (volts), currents (amps) and resistance (ohms). Digital multimeters also offer a wide range of AC and DC measuring capabilities to accommodate a variety of applications. Many multimeters include continuity and diode test functions with an audible alarm for enahnced user experience.


How do they work?


Through the use of a digital output readout, they are connected to a device and measure typically the voltage and any resistances and give you an output you can measure.


Different types of Multimeter:


  • Bench meters – The most accurate of the two device types, the bench meter is a larger device, not very portable. This is because of the extra level of detail it can provide you when measuring certain parameters

  • Handheld - Very portable and allow you to work on the go and access hard to reach machinery. Not as accurate as their bench counterparts, however they still display a high level of accuracy.


Features and benefits:


  • More accurate and easier to use than analogue multimeters
  • They help reduce reading errors
  • Digital multimeters displays do not having moving parts, making them free from wear or shock failures
  • Zero adjustment needed
  • Some feature thermal imaging built into the device
  • Handheld units are extremely portable and ergonomically easy to handle
  • Drop, water and splash resistance
  • Clamp options available
  • Some units have built in work lights and laser pointers for hard to access areas
  • Long battery life
  • Auto power off features

Where might I use one?


  • Electrical testing, plug sockets, lighting and more
  • Perfect for home renovations
  • Business safety tests
