m The lower case letter m indicates the current or voltage is being measured is displayed in milli-amps (mA) or milli-volts (mV) (thousandths (10 -3 ) of an amp or volt). The prefix milli- is formed from the Latin word mille "thousand". You must turn the meter's rotary switch to A mA to activate this feature. Milli (m) is used on DMM's to indicate the measurement being displayed has had the decimal point moved 3 places to the right of the base unit decimal point.
