Buying Considerations For The Best Ohm Meter
There are some basic buying considerations of best ohm meter such as
i) Measuring range: You need to make sure which range ohm meter you need at first look at your work how much range needed then select which one is perfect for your job.
ii) Display: If the device display is LCD and large then it is ok. large clean and clear display will provide you accurate result. sometimes result should be taken from a long distance if the display is large you can analyze the reading from far distance.
iii) Digital or Analogue: Digital meter always preferable it will less your time and accurate result. Analogue result sometimes confuses.
iv) Data hold: Some ohm meter can hold the data reading it will help your your to make easy. Try to buy a meter which can hold your data.
v) Function protection: It’s an important factor before buying check up. No one know how and when accident can occur so the wise decision is to choose a tester which has built in function protection for short circuit, high voltage protection etc.
v) Alarm: Low power alarm, high voltage alarm indication is perfect for any ohm meter. Consider a ohm meter has alarm indication system.
