Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
An instrument designed to measure electric current, voltage, and usually resistance, typically over several ranges of value.
- ‘A multimeter reveals the lowest setting on the dial provides about 7. 85v and the highest clockwise setting reported 14. 92v.’
- ‘Measurements were taken using a digital multimeter.’
- ‘Sure enough, an hour later he appeared and duly started taking the machine apart and prodding it with a multimeter.’
- ‘Voltage output was recorded with a digital multimeter at 5 different points: boot, Windows start up (when loading screen appears), Idle, Load and shut down.’
- ‘Unfortunately, the continuity tester on my multimeter proved me wrong.’
- ‘Then with a bright yellow multimeter (something which I think would be overwhelmingly cool to have, but which I know I'd use once then keep in a drawer forever) he measured the signal strength, filled in a form, then went away.’
- ‘It makes data generators, multimeters and oscilloscopes, as well as semiconductors, optoelectronic components and RF chip sets - all very complex products that require a great deal of customization for individual customers.’
- ‘A 12 V DC supply powered the amps and detectors, and the output voltages produced by the five detectors were displayed on five digital multimeters.’
- ‘We would normally use a multimeter to test the systems ‘unstressed’ performance, but for some reason it broke.’
- ‘A digital multimeter complete with rotary selector switch is one such example.’
- ‘The real voltage in the circuit is verified with an ordinary multimeter.’
- ‘To determine if the interface is single-ended or differential requires the use of a multimeter that measures low resistance values.’
- ‘To discover where such a drain is occurring connect an electrical multimeter to the battery so you can see how much current is being used by the car when it is shut down.’
- ‘The signal from the photodetectors or the radiometer is acquired through a digital multimeter provided with an internal multiplexer with 10 separate channels.’
- ‘While this information is nice, I'm not exactly sold on this device as a multimeter would be better for gauging the PSU's performance.’
- ‘Inside of this container was the multimeter, attachable negative probe, 3526 - B instruction manual, spare fuse, and an attachable alligator clip to either probe.’
- ‘Give me the multimeter meter so I can check the voltage.’
- ‘Our multimeter is capable of recording the Hi, Lo and Average results for each rail.’
