Although we aren’t medical electronic technicians who require a vitally accurate digital multimeter as a human life is potentially at risk, an accurate reading multimeter is necessary when it comes to general computing. Today for testing at Phoronix we have a 3526-B Digi-Probe digital multimeter from Cable Organizer. This multimeter is from Triplett, the same folks that have delivered the Line-Bug 4 Phone/LAN Tester, Fox 2 Hound 2, Sniff-It, Plug-Bug, and the DT92 digital multimeter, all of which have been previously tested at Phoronix.

Features:

· Large 3200 count high(0.6" high)contrast LCD
· 32 segment bargraph
· 5 DC voltage ranges
· 5 AC voltage ranges
· 2 DC current ranges
· 2 AC currrent ranges
· 6 resistance ranges
· Logic test
· Diode test
· Continuity check
· Autoranging
· Data hold
· Range hold
· Low battery indication
· Auto Power Off
· Reversible safety probe tip (can be safely stored when not in use)
· UL listed, CE approved
· Uses 2 1.5V AAA batteries (included)
· 1-year manufacturer warranty against defects

Unlike all of the previously reviewed Triplett products here at Phoronix, the 3526-B is the first product that arrived in a simple white cardboard box. Inside of this container was the multimeter, attachable negative probe, 3526-B instruction manual, spare fuse, and an attachable alligator clip to either probe. Protecting the positive probe was a small plastic tube.
