The M890G digital multimeter is a great buy for the hobbyist, technician or auto mechanic. Measures DC Volts and AC Volts at 10Mohm input impedance, DC and AC current, resistance up to 20M ohm, capacitance up to 20uF, frequency up to 20KHz, and temperature all the way up to 1000°C.

Includes a dedicated transistor socket for NPN and PNP transistor testing, auto power off to save batteries, audible continuity and diode testing, and a big display. Comes with standard test leads and a temperature test probe (K type thermocouple).

The popular 890 multimeter family includes many models: M890B+, M890D, M890C+, M890F, M890G, DT-890G and many more, all using the robust ICL7106 2000 count IC.
