VERSION 09/14
N º 1 2 32 9 4
The unit comes with optoelectronic interface with beam waveguide technology which enables absolutely safe electric
isolation of the measuring instrument from the PC. This protects your PC against any possible damage which otherwise
might be caused as a result of measuring voltages. Apart from this, the VC820 offers any functions expected of a good
multimeter. In addition to the standard functions such as voltage, current and resistance measurement, the unit enables
frequency and capacity measurement. Selfevidently enough, it also offers diode check, acoustic continuity check and
Low-Bat function. Switching from one measuring range to the other is performed automatically (Auto Range). In addition, the unit offers other concenient special functions such as DATA-HOLD, REL, duty cycle.
