In this video we can see the digital multimeter PCE-DM 12 performing diverse measurements.

We can see the digital multimeter PCE-DM 12 measuring the oscilation frequency of a system working at 4 kHz. In this case, we could also measure the working cycle as the percentage pressing the yellow key MODE. We can also see the digital multimeter PCE-DM 12 measuring a plug alternating voltage using alligator clips (these clips are coupled to this multimeter however they are not included in the delivery) by placing the rotary switch in V position.

Definition and information about multimeters:
The digital multimeter is for measuring electrical magnitudes, combining different modes and ranges of measurement in a single device. The standard features of multimeter allow to measure voltage and the intensity of current over the different ranges. Normally the multimeter can be set for measuring continuous current (DC) or alternate current (AC). It can also measure resistance and continuity by using an audible signal. Modern digital multimeters offer the possibility of measuring frequency, capacity and temperature.

PCE-DM 12 digital multimeter: Old russian multimeter

Analogue multimeters show readings by indicating different scales for different measurement ranges and presenting them with detailed markings to allow to take the readings properly. To prevent errors high quality devices have the scale upon a mirrored surface for taking the readings adequately. Such high quality analogue multimeters can be accurate up to one percent of the indicated value. Measurements of alternating current are not as accurate in analogue multimeters due to a preconnected corrector.
