Using Your Meter - VOM and DVM Multitesters
Using Your Meter - VOM and DVM Multitesters Author:Alvis J. Evans This book is about measuring electrical quantities - voltage, current and resistance - with meters. By making such measurements, we begin to understand the effects of electricity. Effects which, many times, we can neither see nor feel. — It helps you understand how meters work, and how they can be used to make basic electrical measurements in the... more » home, in the workshop, at the office, on the job. It has:
* Easy-to-follow instructions
* Easy-to-understand applications
* Clearly illustrated examples
* Easy-to-read text
The basic concepts of meters, both analog and digital, circuit fundamentals, measurement techniques, and meter measurement examples are presented in nine chapters as follows:
1.VOM - The Basic Concepts
The fundamentals of a basic D'Arsonval meter movement, and its use as an ammeter, voltmeter, and ohmmeter are discussed.
2.DVM - The Basic Concepts
The fundamental concepts of a digital meter and how it differs from a VOM as an ammeter, voltmeter, or ohmmeter are discussed.
3.About Multitester Measurements
Series and parallel circuits and Ohm's law. Shows the difference between dc and ac measurements.
4.Measurement of Individual Components
