STELR is happy to announce that from 2018, the current STELR multimeters are being replaced with updated ranging multimeters,
The new multimeters can detect and measure any DC voltage within the range of 0 – 1000V and resistance from 0 – 40 M ohm, without having to select a specific range on the rotary dial.
As current cannot be measured using one setting, there are three settings: microamps, milliamps and amps.
Although not required as part of STELR activities, the meters can also be used to measure AC voltage, capacitance, and frequency and for testing transistors and diodes.
Detailed instructions for the use of the new multimeters will be published on the STELR Website in time for the new school year.
