Pifco universal prüfer 1930’s multimeter?

(1/2) > >>

Spawn:
Hi people, I just received my Pifco universal prüfer. It was a long search but I finally found one in mint condition, with its manual and test leads. When I first saw one in pictures I loved it looks and I wanted one badly. I might make a Plexiglas display for this one.

The meter is first manufactured in the UK sold as Pifco all in one, I think it was a good meter back in 1930’s, later on 30’s a company in Germany start to manufacture these, as in my manual states “Die Ausfuhr nach England, britischen Gebiet und außereuropäischen Staaten ist nicht gestattet” and it was sold as Pifco universal prüfer

Here some information on both:

See for yourself how good it looks:


Back side with all text remaining, some parts got vague after years:


It is not in specs anymore LOL  :-DD , don’t forget how old this meter is. Just to mention my granddad was a baby back then, and I got a 17 years old kid so do the math  ;D


Just to show what size it is, next to a Fluke 80 series:

Hydrawerk:
It looks like a vintage alarm clock.

SeanB:
It probably is in spec on the voltage range, but the meter resistance on the range is dragging down the reference source.

ProBang:

It probably is in spec on the voltage range, but the meter needs urgently the change from the original batterie with a new one.  ;D

Yeap you are right Sean on a power supply it reads 6volts, so it is 1 volt too high  ;D and it draws 20mA according the power supply.

ProBang, nice to mention about the battery because I forgot to check that and there was no battery in it.
