Found what I considered a deal on a 646 Dranetz meter, it has plenty of 
inputs, 3 phase, single phase A/C, and one each 200VPK A/C, 100VDC inputs. 
Dial-in modem, RS232, and Printer interfaces for logging.
It appears to be working well but I had to look inside, found 3 leaking AA 
nicad cells on the CPU board and 12 more in a battery pack that needed to be 
This is just a reminder to look for leaky batteries inside all your older 
stuff like computers and desktop digital multi-meters before you have a 
toxic mess.
15 batteries at $1.25 each not too bad to keep acid off the circuit boards.
