Max Hold on Extech

by jonny5ive on Sat Apr 09, 2016 12:31 pm

this is in regards to the extech multimeter:

It's advertised that the instrument has Max Hold ability - which I perceive to be the ability to show on the screen only the highest reading the instrument makes in a certain time.

But there aren't any instructions on how to do this in the manual, and I can't seem to figure it out by messing with it. Are we sure that this instrument can do MAX HOLD?

Generally what this means is the device has memory. If you have a power supply that you can adjust try this: hook up the DVM and set the P.S. to 1.5 V DC. Push the max hold button and reset the power supply a couple of times. When you are done playing with it; hit the Max button again and it should show you the highest voltage you set the P.S. to.
