Re: Replacement temp probe for muti-meter

Something I noticed when looking through the manual for that multimeter... how the hell is it rated for CAT III 600V with only a 10A 250V fuse for protection?

Anyone would be stupid to use it on anything that high anyways, for something like that I'd look for something higher rated..

Besides highest I've never checked was 240 VAC and 480 VDC

Don't worry that fuse isn't even in the path of any voltage measurements

The fuse is only on the current sensing input.
