Go to circuitspecialists.com, get yourself a nice power supply (or other item of your choosing) and get this DMM for free.--The Gadget Shield: accelerometer, RGB LED, IR transmit/receive, speaker, microphone, light sensor, potentiometer, pushbuttons
Or, the Bargain Level, which still has all the features and good accuracy for $7.50:BUT: Shipping to USA is probably $10 or more, so not so good for a single item =(http://arduino-direct.com/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=150DISCLAIMER: This is in my store...I looked through about 5 or 6 different low-cost multimeters for one to carry. This has some things I wanted: - Audible continuity test for circuit checking without looking.- Transistor and Diode test - Capacitance measurement- High current (20A) measurement as well as low (20 Ma fullscale) So, whatever you buy, look for those too...
How's $5 sound?
... The one I use is EXTECH brand, model EX330.
That is a good deal. Little light on the frequency counting... but it has features mine does not. I have the UT60E and am happy with it. It cost me $600NM as I recall (600 Pesos)I use the Frequency counter a lot more than I thought I would have...The transistor and diode checking capacity is nice. The ability to read capacitors is good.They are sold in many countries under many brand names.http://www.uni-trend.com/recommededproduct.htmlUnless you are filthy rich it is always a trade-off.
I feel being able to measure mA is a big part in building/troubleshooting digital circuits. Any thoughts?
