The multimeter is a portable single instrument capable of measuring various electrical values
including voltage, resistance, and current. The volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) is the most
commonly used multimeter. The typical VOM has a meter movement with a full scale current
of 50 µA, or a sensitivity of 20 KW/V, when used as a DC voltmeter. A single meter movement
is used to measure current, AC and DC voltage, and resistance. Range switches are usually
provided for scale selection (e.g., 0-1V, 0-10V, etc).
