Meet the Meters

Amps and volts, go together like pretzels and mustard, at least in Philadelphia. Where were we? Yes, you pick from our 0-10VDC in 0.2 volt increments voltmeter or the zero-adjust ammeter (Galvanometer) that reads bipolarity up to 500mA in 20mA increments. Both are in black plastic housings, 4" x 5-1/2" x 3-3/4" with a slanted face and red & black banana jack terminals.
