This article gives clear idea in favor of the new users of blogging, that in fact how to do
running a blog.
I know this is an older post but still enjoyable. Although I wanted something that was true RMS, I did end up going with the Extech 430 which was only $90 or so US dollars.
Interestingly enough you mention you don’t see dual board construction in most multimeters, but the Extech 430 is indeed dual board. They put the two fuses on the underside of the board and you actually remove the input jacks from the housing and remove the entire board if you have to change the fuses.
Thought you might find this interesting if you ever want to do a review of true RMS cheaper meters.
Or you could just send me any Fluke you have laying around.
Keep up the videos!
