The best multimeters or multimeters and how to choose

multimeters, multimeters

Un multimeters or multimeters It is one of the tools that cannot be missing in any maker laboratory or workshop, since it is used to take many measurements as well as tests to verify that everything works correctly. For this reason, we have created this article with some of the best that exist, as well as some other purchase recommendations to choose the right one according to your needs. On the other hand, I have included both analog and digital, since there are some people who still prefer analog for various reasons.

How to choose a multimeter or multimeter

When choose multimeters or multimeters, you should take into account the following considerations:

  • The specs of the digital multimeter define the ability of the device to measure direct current, alternating current, direct voltage, alternating voltage and resistance. You should choose a digital multimeter with a primary voltage higher than that required to power the electrical devices you want to take measurements on. It is important to use the multimeter within its current range to avoid injury or damage to the meter. Higher amperages can cause serious problems.
  • It is essential to make sure that the digital multimeter you intend to buy is accurate. The precision of a multimeter is defined as the maximum limit of admissible error in the observed values.
  • A larger multimeter resolution it takes longer to settle after the rightmost digit than one of lower resolution because higher resolution means more digits and thus a larger range of digits to look at.
  • Choose a multimeter with high input impedance if you want to measure the most sensitive electronics, to get accurate measurements.
  • Some measuring devices can measure frequency and, consequently, control the voltage and current levels within a certain frequency range. If your device is powered by a constant AC voltage, make sure it stays on the correct frequency.
  • It is always advisable to determine the amount of energy that can withstand a circuit before starting work. In addition, it is necessary to know the maximum overvoltage voltage that the polymers can withstand without being damaged.
  • La temperature function A digital multimeter's dual differential allows you to monitor two temperatures at once if you need to monitor temperature frequently.
  • Some of the multimeters best-selling and most appreciated brands They are Fluke, Meco, PeakTech, Mastech, Rishabh, HTC, Extech, Motwane and Sigma. These manufacturers offer digital multimeters that are accurate and reliable.

Taking these considerations into account, you will be able to choose a great multimeter according to your needs or simply limit yourself to choosing one of the recommendations I made in the previous list, both digital and analog, although I personally recommend a digital one for convenience.
