Using the Bargraph
The bar graph is like the needle on an analog meter. It has
an overload indicator (>) to the right and a polarity
indicator (+)to the left.
Because the bar graph updates much faster than the digital
display, the bar graph is useful for making peak and null
The bar graph is disabled when measuring capacitance and
temperature. In frequency, the bar graph and range
annunciator indicates the underlying voltage up to 1 kHz.
The number of segments indicates the measured value and
is relative to the full-scale value of the selected range.
In the 60 V range, for example (see below), the major
divisions on the scale represent 0, 15, 30, 45, and 60 V. An
input of 30 V turns on the negative sign and the segments
up to the middle of the scale.
Maintenance of the Meter consists of replacing the battery
and cleaning the case.
