How to use a cen-tech Digital Multimeter to Check Voltage

A multimeter is an essential tool for any electrician. It can be used to measure current, voltage and resistance in the circuit of your device which will help you diagnose problems with it much more efficiently than before. There are two types: analog ones where readings appear as a moving microammeter display; digital units offer numbers or graphics representation instead so they’re easier on viewers’ eyes (and remember – this thing knows how many calories each number represents).

How to use a cen-tech Digital Multimeter to Check Voltage

Digital multimeters are highly accurate and can be purchased for less than $100. Cen-Tech manufactures several types that measure AC (Alternating Current), as well DC(Direct current).

​If you’re looking for a multimeter that can handle anything from basic electronics measurements, like voltage or resistance testing to more exotic tasks such as capacitive touch sensing and powerline communications analysis then the Cen Tech VOMs may be right up your alley. They’ve got seven different models all with their own unique features so there’s sure something in this line-up will suit whatever needs someone has.

Preparing the Multitester for Use

Three jacks on the front are for selecting your measurement needs. The top one will take a 10ADC reading, while OHMs is just below that and COM stands for Communication/Data Porting which could be used to connect an external device such as laptop or tablet into this unit’s data port with its own cord so you don’t have carry around all those extra batteries.

When you purchase the multimeter, there are a pair of leads that come with it to fit into these jacks. One is usually red and another black- they also provide multi pin studs for testing transistors as well as an on/off button which can be used when activating LED display functions respectively; each function has its particular setting in order make sure everything works properly

The output should sound more professional than just saying “With this device I was able to test various components without any problems.”

How to Measure Voltage and Current

To test for AC voltage, go to that particular section on your volt-ohm meter and turn the selector up until you reach 750 volts. In between two jacks marked VΩ Ma insert red lead from circuit while plugging in black wire from Com portion onto exposed wires together with leads touching both surfaces of whatever’s being tested – this will allow us see if there are any shorts or opens anywhere along its length.

Your reading should be accurate if it’s more than 250. However, turn the selector to 250 for a more concise result.

To measure DC voltage, leave both the red and black leads in their initial jacks. Move the dial to 1000 then turn it back counterclockwise so that you can record your reading after touching exposed wires on circuit for less than 20 should be most inaccurate if acquired at 200 or higher with an error range of 10 percent

-but don’t forget this measurement will change depending upon how much there is flowing through each lead.

To test for current, you will need to leave the black lead in and switch over your 10A ADC jack so that it can accommodate red. Rotate this dial towards 10AM until you see 0 Volts appear with meter reading off of course.

Touch the naked circuit wires to your leads and note down what you get. When there’s less than 0.2A current passing through them, turn off the meter by grounding both ends with an exposed metal part like a screwdriver or other tool appropriate for this task; then put back one lead so its length matches exactly how much was removed from it before starting again until all four measurements have been made correctly in order for accurate readings as well.

Extra Info

A VOM is an essential tool for any electrician. It can be used in the field to check wiring, measure resistance of wires and other materials with high accuracy levels up until 0%. This makes it very useful when working on jobs that require close attention such as residential repair work or installation projects at commercial buildings where there could potentially still remain some unknown issue lurking around due not knowing what kind problem might arise next.
