Voltage meter

Hi,

Is it possible that we can satured a voltage meter? I mean that an overload of high voltage through the voltage meter.

Thanks,

Mica

Re: Voltage meter

Usually voltage meters have high input impedance - 1MΩ serial resistor is pretty common, followed by an external/internal overvoltage/reverse voltage protection circuit, so even if you apply higher voltage than the selected range the voltmeter will show out-of-range condition but if you remove that voltage it will return to "zero" state ..

Regards,
IanP
