Calibrating Your Digital Multimeter

If you find yourself in the field and needing to calibrate your Fieldpiece LT17A Digital Multimeter, there is a very simple solution. Calibrating the LT17A is easy even if you are on the job. Just fill a bucket of ice water to obtain a known temperature of 32°F (0°C) and place the thermocouple in the ice water. Then, adjust the TEMP OFFSET pot on the face of the LT17A's meter until it reads 32.0 (0.0).

You can find the LT17A Digital Multimeter, as well as a large variety of other Fieldpiece Instruments and Meters at
