Proskit MT-1710 Multimeter review
« on: June 16, 2016, 08:21:28 pm »
Greetings everyone. I am willing to buy a multimeter, however not a very professional ones like Fluke, Agilent, etc and my budget is within $50 to $80. My first look was the new proskit MT-1710 true RMS digital Multimeter since it is almost a fully featured multimeter and has a higher specs for its capacitance, which can measure up to 100mF (100000uF). Before I would take any step in purchasing it, I would like to know more if this multimeter has input protections like the MOVs, PTC and fuse ratings.

Can anyone do a review and teardown on this Proskit MT-1710 multimeter for inspection?

Here the official link for this multimeter:

Thanks.

The MT-1710 looks a lot like the Victor V97.  Not identical in button layout, but very close.  Rotary dial layout is virtually identical. See

Actually it is identical to the Victor VC97.  A quick search on eevblog shows

Hi, first time posting anything. I do have the Proskit MT-1710. I purchased it before I knew much about multimeters and electronics. It has more PTC's and MOV's than pictured in the Victor, however it still sustained quite a bit of damage when I tried to measure 230V AC. I now know that mains power is much higher than 230v. When I opened it up the solder around the inputs was melted. Both glass fuses were blown and there was a bit of heat deformation. The pcb has VC97 on the top version 2.4 The narrow AC bandwidth isn't the best and any other waveform apart from sine, triangle, and possibly square has an accuracy of 8%. I purchased an Elenco RS-500 resistance substitution box and an Electrics Salon 1nF - 9999nF four decade capacitance board and it performed pretty well.

I have one that got completely out of calibration (10k resistor measured 2.8k) and there does not seem to be any potentiometer inside to adjust it...

Does anyone know if this is it? or is ther an hiden way to adjust it?
