The Voltcraft VC 271 multimeter has a number of features which the device for training purposes interests Sant. The measuring device is also suitable for applications up to 600 V for work and hobby. By pressing a button the input resistance can be reduced for a short time from 10 MΩ to 400 kΩ, in order to avoid faulty measurements through stray voltages.
Large display with 4000 Counts
With 19 mm digit size, this multimeter a very good readability. The display shows each of 4-digit values up to 4000 (4000 counts) – independent from the position in which the comma is located.
Compact and robust
The shock-proof device features a composite enclosure including a protective rubber layer. And the rubber-coating also provides lots of grip. A stand on the rear side lets you place the multimeter in a way that allows you to read the display, keeping your hands free for taking readings.
True RMS readings ensure accuracy
True RMS measurement enables reading of asymmetrical voltage and amperage with wave forms other than a sinus. Asymmetric voltages are very common in various types of dimmers, speed limiters, synchonised switches, pulse-type chargers, or scale model speed controllers. Which means that in these cases conventional meters displaying average readings are prone to large measurement errors.
Acoustic warning signal
An acoustic signal is from wrong plugging the measuring line immediately sounds an acoustic sound again.
Removable protective caps
The probe tips are optimally protected against contact. If necessary, a protective cap can be removed in order, for example, to measure in luster.
The measuring lead wear indicator
The leads feature two layers of insulation, each in a different colour. Damage to the first insulating layer, a differently colored insulation to the forefront. Ideal for training devices, in order to replace worn measuring lines at an early stage.
Measuring sockets assignment
Depending on the measurement size is the correct assignment of the measuring sockets are shown in the display. Beginners and students, this is a great help to avoid misuse.
This device has a self-resetting fuse for the measuring range up to 400 mA. The change of expensive high-power fuse is not necessary in this version. This is just in the education of advantage.
Safety when replacing the battery
For changing battery or 10 A fuse, the casing must be opened. For safety reasons, the measuring lines should not be connected. This measuring device is in contrast to simple conventional devices designed in such a way that the housing not open as long as test leads are connected. Test leads can be only after the closing of the housing again.
This series is particularly long life of the battery is optimized. It was therefore dispensed with in the development on a display backlight
Factory calibration ensures accurate readings
Calibration according to manufacturer standards is part of Voltcraft Quality Assurance. This ensures high quality products and compliance with tolerance limits as outlined in the user manual. This does not include certification.
