A digital multimeter is a versatile tool that can be used to test and troubleshoot a variety of electrical and wiring problems. Most digital multimeters have a large digital display that makes it easy to read the results of your measurements, and many also come equipped with features that make them more user-friendly, such as auto-ranging and auto-power off.

To use a digital multimeter, you’ll first need to select the appropriate setting for the type of measurement you’ll be taking. For example, if you’re testing continuity, you’ll need to set the meter to the “continuity” or “resistance” setting. Once you have the meter set to the correct mode, you can then take your measurement by touching the probes to the appropriate points in the circuit.

What is a digital multimeter?

A digital multimeter is a hand-held electronic measuring instrument that is used to measure AC or DC voltage, resistance, and capacitance, as well as DC current and continuity. The Cen-Tech digital multimeter is a compact and easy-to-use multimeter that is ideal for use in the field or in the lab.

How to use a digital multimeter

A digital multimeter is a handy tool that can be used to measure voltage, current, and resistance. It is a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of tasks, such as testing batteries, checking electrical circuits, and more. In this article, we will show you how to use a digital multimeter.

Setting up the multimeter

Before you can use your digital multimeter, you need to make sure it is properly set up. To do this:

1. Connect the red lead to the “VΩmA” socket.
2. Connect the black lead to the “COM” socket.
3. Set the mode switch to the “DCV” position.
4. Set the range switch to the desired range.
5. Set the function switch to the “DCV” position.

Now your digital multimeter is properly set up and ready for use!

Taking a reading

To take a reading with a digital multimeter, you first need to choose the correct setting. To do this, turn the knob until it lines up with the symbol that represents the type of reading you want to take. For example, if you want to measure voltage, choose the setting that has a V with a straight line underneath it. Once you’ve selected the correct setting, touch the probes to the appropriate points on the circuit and read the display.


Now that you know how to use a multimeter, you can easily test electrical circuits to see if they are working correctly. This is a valuable skill to have whether you are a homeowner or a professional electrician. Always follow safety precautions when working with electricity. If you are ever in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
