It could take some time before I’m fully fought up with my various postbags, here is some more:
Yokogawa TY720 True RMS Digital Multimeter
In the last entry I looked at the UNI-T UT61E Digital Multimeter in this entry I’ll talk about the Yokogawa TY720 True RMS Digital Multimeter.
The TY720 is a solid unit and could well become my favourite meter. As well as the usual voltage, current and resistance measurements, this rather large, backlit, 5-digit beauty (which has closed-case calibration) has data memory and does diode testing, capacitance, frequency measurement and more. Measurements can be absolute or relative and you can select min, max, average with auto-hold, data hold and more.
Frequency measurement is from 2Hz to 100Khz and temperature readings from –200c to 1372c (with optional probe for temperature. I did not receive one of these).
The meter runs on 4 AA cells. Too early at this point to say how long they will last but it is easy to replace the batteries. Construction looks fine and overall appearance is good. At this point I can’t find anything negative to say. Operating temperature at –20c to +55c is outside of anything my unit will encounter.
All in all, a very nice meter.
I also have a very nice Owon meter with Bluetooth but as that is currently in storage, a review will have to wait a little while, meanwhile there is far, far more in the current batch of post that I still need to cover.
