recommendations for small footprint multi-meter
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:32:15 pm »
Hello,
Both my multimeters are on the blink (doggy switch and probe terminals etc) so time to buy a new one.
Problem is i have very limited worktop space so every sq inch counts re its footprint, even BM235 seems TOO BIG.

So any recommendations for a small footprint, good range V ac, V dc, I ac, I dc, Ohm, Cap, Hz, True RMS would be nice, with some PC data logging facility.
Hi  CAT rating not really necessary as i generally only do  low voltage electronics.

Many thanks in advance imk

Get a bench DMM. That way you can stack equipment on top of it. There is no better way to save space. Personally I like the VC8145 bench DMMs.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

There may be something on my review list that fits you: https://lygte-info.dk/info/DMMReviews.html
The table only gives a rough size (Click header of type column to sort), but each review includes the actual size of the meter.

I use Uni-T UT-136B everywhere. They are nice meters in a small package.
