An instrument which is arranged to measure two or more different electrical quantities (such as volts, amps, and ohms) by means of associated circuits and switches. The value is usually expressed on a single calibrated dial or digital readout display. For items which are connected into a circuit and used chiefly to visually monitor an operation, see METER, MULTIPLE SCALE. See also COUNTER, ELECTRONIC, DIGITAL READOUT. Excludes BRIDGE (as modified).
