Tool Nerds has put together a great infographic/resource and blogpost talking all about how to use a multimeter.
According to Fluke Networks a digital multimeter (which is the standard nowadays, replacing the original analog tools)
“…is a test tool used to measure two or more electrical values—principally voltage (volts), current (amps) and resistance (ohms). It is a standard diagnostic tool for technicians in the electrical/electronic industries.”
As Tool Nerds say
“Using a multimeter is a pretty simple process, as long as you know what you are doing. If you aren’t sure about the concept of a multimeter, don’t try to use it because you’ll jeopardize your safety and expose yourself to a potentially fatal process.”
So whether you need to update your knowledge on using this tool or you want a reference to quickly show someone else how to use a multimeter this is a great tool you’ll want to bookmark.
