What can I read on this multimeter?
This multi-function analogue multimeter is capable of reading AC and DC voltage, DC current, resistance and capacitance, and can also give an audible continuity reading.

Why use an analogue multimeter?
Analogue multimeters are more commonly used where a more precise reading is needed. Whereas a digital multimeter will round up the amount being tested, an analogue multimeter will show you on the scale where the measurement lies. It can also show a fluctuation in the measurement being taken more accurately than a digital multimeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, the MT2017 arrived this morning. I have been working in the electronic field since the '70, and back then the analogue multimeters were the only game in town. Thank you to Maplin for having brought to the market a good quality analogue instrument with a reasonable price, since it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find a good quality meter. The MT-2017 from Proskit is the natural evolution of the MT-2007, a five-year old Proskit model, which I have. In comparison, the MT-2017 is slightly thicker, it is built with SMD technology and has more functions: the Ohm x 100 range, and the two zero-center 5 Volt and 25 Volt ranges, which are peculiar to this model. Also, there is a 10 Amp. fuse installed on the 10 Amp range, so you don't risk that the meter blows in your face if you use the 10 Amp range in parallel to distribution busbars... All in all, the MT-2017 is a very good meter for the price. The galvanometer is a classical spring-loaded D'Arsonval type, but is sufficiently robust to survive in a toolbox. I tested the MT2017 with a voltage standard, and the measurement had a precision of 0.8%, better then what is advertised. I really miss a suitable hard case to keep the meter in. I recommend the MT-2017 to everybody who needs to use an analogue multimeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems well put together and feels solid. Nice integral stand for bench testing. I like the old school analogue needle too. Can't go wrong for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way back in 1968 I bought a meter, analogue only in those days, called a TMK500 (can still Google it!) from one of the big London dealers. It cost me ?ъ8 17s 6d, post free. I had years of service and some of the ranges still work! Since then I've had a couple of digital meters, but as most people know a moving needle can sometimes tell you more than digits. With the TMK500 becoming past it, I have been looking casually for a while for a reasonably priced replacement. The MT-2017 caught my eye and having read the reviews and poked one in a Maplin store I bought one at ?ъ12.99, Compare that to what my ?ъ8 17s 6d from 1968 would be in 2014 money! The MT-2017 offers almost the same ranges as my old meter (and neither offer AC current). The MT-2017 has a slightly smaller scale but it is hardly noticeable particularly for the main ranges. Both have mirror scales. The MT-2017 adds the very useful transistor test function and battery check function. And the Null meter is a very useful plus. I am impressed with the features and value for money. I looked for reasons not to award 5 stars and could not find any. The only niggle is that the obscured semicircle covering the meter movement also covers the db scale from normal viewing angles. I am unlikely to use this scale but it may be important to others. For me, the meter keeps 5 stars and well done Maplin for marketing an analogue multimeter I wanted to buy! It is a good successor to my 1968 meter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not luminous green lost me the 5th star as i was expecting color in the picture as well as the good performance this device offers, i must add for some ... A very good needle response, accurate & offers 1000V Coming from a digital meter to analog can be confusing measuring resistance, its a little tricky getting use to the tunable feature, but its very useful, you will always get a accurate result ... Its quite a larger than normal multimeter as an ex mobile engineer, others may find too large for a bag A nice sturdy feel & look, with "belt attachment" feature but i wouldn't recommend to someone who climbs telegraph poles or does anything with it that may risking banging, personally any analog device should be highly looked after & reduced movement as it contains moving parts unlike what the makers intended it for, belt attachment, like it too much lets say :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy 10 out of 10 Excellent purchase. I had read a review that said the AAA cells were difficult to install. Absolutely easy in my case. Well, OK I had to bend one of the tags out a little bit for it to make good contact with the end of the call, but that is something one has to do quite often. Good clear readings, good range choices including 10amp DC which my old one doesn't have. The reason I always choose an analogue meter is because they put a very slight load on the line so you don't get spurious readings which sometimes happens on a digital.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I work on a fleet off motorbikes and found this a very good tool for charge rates and checking feeds + nice and big so can read easy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Briiliant I was hesitant in buying this multimeter as i searched high and low for the largest size available. Arrived within a couple of days and it exceeded all expectations. On some reviews, I read bad comments (You Tube)about fitting the two sets of batteries as they were in close proximity to each other. However on my version, the PP3 is at the top with the 2x AAA`s under another compartment, lower down. Nothing like the reviews I had previously seen - so is this a latest version ? Its a brilliant piece of kit and well worth the money, cant fault it Go and buy one, its a bargain

What battery is used for the ohms test and for any other tests that need internal power, and are these readily available? I am seriously thinking of buying one, and would be most grateful if you would email me a handbook?

Asked by: Tommun
This takes two different sources depending on the test function chosen, either 2xAAA batteries or a single 9V PP3. I have emailed a copy of the manual, if required this is also available in the downloads tab on the product page.

The MT 2017 information appears to be incorrect.It shows the resistance range is 'from 1Ω to 10kΩ'.The Instr. manual shows maximum resistance range is - X10K: 2K, ~20MΩ Midscale, at 200K.What is the max resistance that can be measured?

Asked by: calpe1704
On the web site the description shows this: - 'Resistance testing from 1Ω to 10kΩ' Therefore anyone looking at this will assume the max. measurable resistance is only 10K. It would be better to have the cescription amended giving the correct details.

I want to order a pair of hooked probes for this meter. Standard size - not 'sub-miniture' ones

On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative

Can you please tell me why the meter uses TWO sets of batteries?

Asked by: Mr B
This is to allow it to test a larger range of voltages.
