Looking for opinions on the HP 3478A multimeter. I see them listed in
the 100-200 U.S. dollar range for items in good shape, and right now a
calibrated one for $170. I like to stick to HP/Tek/Fluke so I can
easily find broken units for a good price to get parts from and manuals
are easier to get.
For my purposes (hobby and experimenting) it has more than enough digits
and speed. I like the high resistance on the low DC volt ranges. It's
not my only meter. I have two Flukes from the 80's and a basic
What is the minimum I can get away with to prove/calibrate the DC volt
Thanks in advance.
