Product details

Precision Gold WG020 Digital Multimeter

• Capacitance test to 200µF in 5 ranges ±(8%rdg +10dgts)• Inductance test to 20H in 5 ranges ±(5%rdg +20dgts) • Auto-ranging frequency counter to 15MHz in 5 ranges ±(0.5%rdg +1dgt)

This accurate, versatile multimeter features a comprehensive range of functions for the professional or serious hobbyist. The frequency function is auto-ranging, and a ‘MAX’ hold facility allows the highest reading of a varying measurement to be stored. In addition to the basic functions, a ‘duty cycle’ measurement facility is provided, which is a useful aid for analysing pulsed signals in digital circuits. Continuity test, diode test, and a transistor hFE tester are also included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent piece of electronic test gear, it has all of the features that any person would want whether they are a student studying electronics, the service man, or someone who simply has electronics as a hobby. The instrument is light enough to carry on your person and compact enough to put in the service mans tool bag or box, it has added protection to protect it just in case you do accidently drop it or it slips off the service bench work area and it is very reasonably priced which could make it not only affordable for the student but as a Christmas present.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall OK, the rotating switch feels a bit "cheap", and has the following problems (so far noted): - Continuity common with 200 ohm range; - Continuity gives a "pop" sound at start and stop; - On 200 ohm range, shorting the probes gives a 0.4 ohm reading, but not stable - useless in measuring low value resistors - actually, an old an cheap instrument that I have is doing much better in this respect
