Diode test open circuit test voltage is 1.1 V to 1.6 V and short circuit current is < 0.6 mA (typical)and it's measurement range is 0-1vdc when in the diode test mode.
Good point on reading the manual there guys... In my defence, it was in the last section so I didn't read that far , and hey I only got the thing today and so today is a delayed Christmas and I'm playing with my toy.(If you're interested, the Johannesburg CityPower mains is spot on at 49.99Hz (we're a 50Hz country) and my freezer is -7C.)
Just take the time to learn it's ... limitations
QuoteJust take the time to learn it's ... limitationsOn the subject of which, the manual is silent on whether or not the thermocouple can be immersed in liquid.... Any thoughts?
Basically the answer is (or should be) YES since a thermocouple is simply two different metals welded together. There will be heat resistant insulation which may get soggy but it'll dry out once back into fresh air.
Basically the bare thermocouple is a contact measurement device for metal
