Just Got My New DVOM

Bruno2
I purchased the coolest Digital Volt Meter. It is a Fluke 233.

https://www.amazon.com/Fluke-233-Remote-Display-Multimeter/dp/B002X7ZX00

Fluke makes a 233A which is designated for automotive use. I do a lot of residential diagnosis with my meters so I didnt want one more geared towards automotive because I have always been able to use a regular DVOM to trouble shoot or diagnose anything in the realm of automotive. I didnt look to see exactly what the differences were between the two, but I know I just wanted the regular 233.

Having a remote display I can load test batteries from the driver's seat or go to a load center and turn off breakers until I find the one my meter was hooked to. Really a cool tool!

That is nice! If I decide I want to replace my Fluke 75 (free) I might look into that.

I like it!  That remote would have been nice in so many situations.  Sold!

That is a great meter. The Fluke stuff is very nice.

I couldn't have a garage/toolbox without digital multi~meters. Mine is not a Fluke, but I do use it all the time, for automotive, for home use, and once in a while for work stuff.

I was just using my TES clamp meter yesterday to check the load on my little generator. Power was out for almost 24hrs, and I like to keep an eye on the amps so I don't overload it.
