Digital multimeter for various electrical measurements

The multimeter is the Swiss Army knife among electrical measuring instruments and is used to measure various electrical values. While inexpensive models can usually only measure AC/DC voltage (V), AC/DC amperage (A) and resistance (Ω), more expensive models often also have functions for measuring capacitance, frequency, duty cycle or temperature. Accordingly, when selecting a multimeter, first determine which measurement functions are needed. Likewise, one should consider the measuring range as well as the measuring accuracy of the individual measuring functions.



Finding the right multimeter based on (additional) functions

An important decision factor in selecting the right model is the screen resolution (counts). The higher the number of counts, the more precise the measurements. Digital multimeters also differ in the measuring range selection. While the measuring range must be determined manually in the case of manual range selection, the measuring range is determined by the multimeter itself in the case of automatic range selection.


The models also differ in terms of the other functions. For example, the non-contact voltage measurement (NCV) can be used to detect electrical voltages, the data hold function freezes measured values and the RMS measurement (True RMS) can be used to determine the equivalent DC value of an AC signal. Thus, True RMS instruments can correctly measure both sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal AC voltage signals. Many multimeters also have other features such as a continuity and diode test function, an LED work light, an auto power off function, or a battery test function. Likewise, additional features such as a rubber sheath to protect against drop damage, water and dust resistance (e.g. IP65) or the dimensions and operating concept of the multimeter can influence the final purchase decision.


Finding the right multimeter based on the CAT measurement category

As diverse as the functions of the multimeter, are also its areas of application. The areas in which a multimeter can be used depend on the CAT measurement category.

  • Cat I: Measurement on devices without connection to the mains (e.g. battery operation). 
  • Cat II: Measurement on devices connected to the normal, single-phase household mains. 
  • Cat III: Measurement in the area of distribution boxes and three-phase installations. 
  • Cat IV: heavy current applications.

Therefore, to find the perfect multimeter for you, you should consider both the application areas and the features you need when making your selection decision.
