The SDM series of multimeters have autorange capabilities that allow the meter to automatically select the range appropriate for a given input signal level. To prevent damage to the meter, current (ACI and DCI measurement modes) ranges will be automatically up-ranged if the input signal exceeds the maximum value for the selected manual range. In … Continued
The SDM3000 series of Digital Multimeters feature dual measurement capability. This means that the instrument can alternate between two measurements and simultaneously display both values. Here are the functions that qualify for dual measurements: Here is an example of the display of an SDM measuring DCV and DCI using the dual measurement technique: … Continued
