Analogue Multimeter

An analogue multimeter is a voltage measuring meter. It takes a little power from the circuit that is being tested to operate the pointer. It can measure at least 20k/V any more than this may damage the circuit.

It power comes from batteries inside the meter that provides the power for the resistance ranges.

To measure Analogue Meter Resistance we use this equation

Analogue Meter Resistance = Sensitivity × Max. reading of range


We measuring resistance with an ANALOGUE multimeter by this process :-


1- Set the meter to a suitable resistance range.

2- Hold the meter probes together and adjust the control on the front of the meter which is usually labelled "0 ADJ" until the pointer reads zero (on the RIGHT remember!).

3- Put the probes across the component.

4. Read the measurement
