What is a Voltmeter?

A voltmeter is a device that measures the voltage (difference in electrical pressure) between two points (usually in an electrical circuit).

To understand the voltage in an electrical circuit you can think of it as water pressure in a water pipe. For example when the pressure of water in a water pipe is high (in compare with outside pressure), water can exit at high velocity and go far. When the pressure is low then water can exit at low speed and does not go far.

In the same way, high voltage electricity can jump far (almost like lightening that jumps from the clouds to the ground). Low voltage electricity on the other hand requires a very tight and good contact to flow.

Desktop Voltmeter

This is a desktop analog Voltmeter or Volt meter for measuring or showing electrical voltage between two points in an electrical circuit.

It can show the voltage between 0 and 15 Volts with 0.5 volt accuracy. Or it can show the voltage between 0 and 3 volts with 0.1 volt accuracy.

Product Code: VMETER1

Desktop voltmeter

This analog voltmeter (also known as potentiometer) has an adjustment knob and 3 binding posts. The black binding post is for the negative side of the connection and the red binding posts are for the positive side of the circuit. Each red binding post is for a different range and they are all marked with raised characters in front of the device.

Desktop voltmeter is recommended for students and classrooms.

Box dimensions are 10 x 9 x 6 centimeters.

Keywords: Educational desktop voltmeter. Analog voltmeter, Potentiometer.
