Tech Note 127 Detail

Meter does not work

Affected Products:

SE-9748 0-5 V, 0-15 V DC Voltmeter

Problem/Symptom:
I overloaded my analog meter and now it does not work. What can I do?

PASCO Solution:
There are two diodes in opposite directions in parallel with the meter. This diode arrangement protects the meter no matter which way it is connected to the voltage source. When a diode fails, it will shunt the current; the current goes through the fail
