Multimeter Tutorial part 3 – Voltage!

Voltage is the name of Todd Bailey’s band. This tutorial is not about that, however. It is about how to use your multimeter!

Part 3 of this exciting series sees our protagonist in AC/DC land taking care of three common tasks:

Testing batteries!

Measuring wall supplies!

Checking out wall-sockets!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Great blog.I’m always a bit scared to poke into wall socket type of things,did that once and it made the positive probe on my multimeter a bit shorter… oh well we all have to learn

  2. AC line voltage is 120V RMS, or 170V peak and 340V peak-to-peak.
