An inexpensive multifunctional Digital Multimeter
I was wandering around Fry's, and was looking at all the different Digital Multimeters, and came accross this:
What surprised me is that I found a DMM that was the cheapest, and had more functions than the $100-200 ones.
This baby does near everything and more. And the cost... only $35!
Transistor, diode, continuity testing DC current 20A max., DC voltage 1000V max. AC current 20A max., AC voltage 700V max. Resistance up to 20M ohm Capacitance from 2000 pico-farad to 20 micro-farad Frequency up to 20kHz Temperature from 32F to 104F via built in sensor, -58F to 1832F with K type thermocouple (included) 3 1/2 digit
I was thinking I'd have to either buy multiple meters, or shell out tons of cash for a nice one. All the really expensive ones didn't even have a capacitance checker.
So if you need a nice all-around DMM, then this puppy might do it for ya ;)
