Handheld Multimeter Safety Precautions

Application Notes

What do you do when you need to measure power from mains, or some other high voltage or high energy source? Should you just grab the nearest handheld multimeter available? Absolutely not!

The same goes for your helmet. All helmets attempt to protect the user’s head, but the structure, design, and protective ability vary for different kinds of activities. A helmet designed for rock climbing needs to protect you against small rocks or falling objects. A bicycle helmet needs to protect you against blunt impact forces from the road or car hood.

Likewise, different handheld multimeters are designed with different levels of protection against common electrical hazards.

For your own safety and the safety of those near you, you must choose a handheld multimeter that is designed and tested to protect you against electrical hazards you might encounter. designed and tested to protect you against electrical hazards you might encounter.
