Weird Multimeter Behavoir???

by analoger on Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:41 am

Hello,

Is it normal for a multimeter when it's set to measure voltage and it's probes not touching anything to show a floating reading of fractions of volts?

This happens with Agilent U1253B.

Any idea?

That is typical. An unconnected probe makes a good antenna.
