    There is a "low cost" (read furiously cheap) digital multimeter
    that we use a few of around our workshop - and that same meter has
    also been inherited by a few of our customers - so we decided to
    put up a webpage describing it. We ripped the meter apart to write
    the page, and we have documented just about everything you could
    want to know about this particular DVM.

    This is not a "how to build it" webpage but a "how to use it" -
    the webpage presumes you already own the meter. However a lot of
    the "low cost" DVMs out there are actually very similar inside.
    I am hoping that the webpage will be useful - and maybe some people
    will say "Hey that's my meter with a different label!"

    Covers the basics of a DVM, specs and performance,
    making measurements, and hints on using a multimeter.

    There are some similar Multimeters to the one depicted on this very
    informative website that have an RS232 connection to allow logging of
    whatever is measured.
    Does anyone have any better software than the rather limited version that
    comes with, for instance, the digitech QM1538.?

    The below meter is about as cheap as they get. Doesn't have an
    audio beep function, but otherwise fairly rugged and functional.

    I got a couple at the local HF store for $3.99 and tax each. If
    you ordered 4, then the cost would be ~$6 each and be able to
    meter a circuit in several places, keep one in the truck, etc..
