Analog Meter Precautions Do not Jar, manhandle, drop or pile tools or any thing else on your meter. In both of these precautions, you do not want to jar the needle from it jeweled pivot! Do not place your multimeter in a place where you may accidentally knock it over or pull it to the floor.

Do not let your multimeter get wet and never store it in a damp place. If you do get it wet, open the case and let it set open until it is dry. Do not let your Ohm meter set on any of the resistance ranges when not in use or when in storage. Turn off etc… This can cause the battery in the meter to run down.

Don’t let magnetized objects near your meter! This may permanently decrease your meter’s accuracy. Do not let depleted batteries remain in your meter. The batteries are needed to operate your Ohm meter. Bad batteries can leak and cause damage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
