Learn the usage and features of the analog and digital Multimeter.
This lesson is designed so that no prior knowledge is required.
This lesson demonstrates and explains how to use both a digital and an analog multimeter. During this lesson, voltage, resistance, current, capacitance, and frequency are measured. This lesson also describes some of the more common features of a digital multimeter.
Identify and describe the display area, the function switch, and the leads/jacks on a digital multimeter. Adjust the mechanical zero and interpret a reading on the voltage scale, and the resistance scale of an analog meter. Given an expected measurement, set the function and range switches of an analog multimeter and adjust the zero on the ohms scale. Know how to use a multimeter for a variety of purposes including checking for continuity across a circuit, measuring resistance, current, frequency, ac and dc voltage, and capacitance. And use the hold button, relative button, range button, and min/max button on a DMM.
ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC TEST EQUIPMENT LIBRARY( 3 )
This lesson explains and demonstrates the use of both analog and digital oscilloscopes. Participants will learn the controls on each type of oscilloscope, how to use a probe with an oscilloscope, how to set up an oscilloscope, and how to determine various measurements taken with an oscilloscope. The first in a three part series.

This lesson describes Wheatstone bridges, megohmmeters, and clamp-on ammeters. This lesson provides examples of the use of these instruments, identifies their components, and defines their functions. This lesson also describes safety and selection considerations for their use, describes how to set up the instruments, how to connect them to the systems under test, and how to take and read measurements.
