How to choose the right meter for the job

- Advertisment -

Comtest, the local representative of Fluke has launched a 3-minute video “Choosing the right meter for the job” to help those who are in the market for a multimeter. Initially, choosing a meter requires consideration of the task that the meter will be used for, evaluating basic measurement needs and job requirements and then checking special features/functions built into the many available meters. Consider whether just basic measurements are required, or if more advanced troubleshooting options are needed, and then other special features that may be offered.

There are also safety considerations to be bourne in mind. The increased occurrence and levels of transient overvoltages in today’s power systems have given rise to more stringent safety standards for electrical measurement equipment. Transients which ride on top of power sources (mains, feeder or branch circuits) can trigger a sequence of events that may lead to serious injury. Test equipment must be designed to protect people working in this high-voltage, high-current environment.
