Frequently Bought Together
The Triplett 2030-C Auto-ranging Pocket Sized Digital Multimeter (also known as a multitester) is a digital meter with 37 measurement ranges including AC/DC voltage to 600V, AC/DC current to 400mA, resistance between 400 ohms and 4 megaohms, capacitance between 40 nanofarads and 400 microfarads, and frequency between 10Hz and 10KHz. The meter also has a continuity beeper which provides audible detection of resistance and a diode test. The meter has a 3-3/4 digit, 4000-count resolution LDC and readings can be held on the display by using the hold function. Test leads are attached to the unit and stored in an attached compartment. Both manual- and auto-ranging capabilities are available and in auto-range mode the meter will automatically select the range that will produce the most accurate reading. This multimeter meets International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for Category I and II up to 600V AC/DC and overload protection provides resistance to damage from transient overvoltages. It uses two 1.5V batteries (installed) that have a battery life of approximately 150 hours and includes an auto power-off function to help preserve battery life. The wrist strap (included) can be used to make the lid function as a stand for hands-free viewing. The meter measures 3.2 x 4.8 x 0.8 inches (H x W x D) and weighs approximately 4 oz. (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Multimeters are electrical test meters that measure multiple properties of an electrical circuit, such as current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, and continuity. Available in handheld or benchtop models, multimeters diagnose electrical problems in electrical equipment, wiring, and power supplies. A variety of probes, clamps, and leads can be used to connect the meter to a circuit or device. Multimeters display information either in analog or digital form. Factors that influence meter choice include the electrical properties to be measured, the anticipated range of results, and the desired level of protection against transient voltage. Safety ratings are based on International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for low-voltage test equipment. IEC 61010 delineates four overvoltage installation categories. In general, a meter with a category IV rating will provide more protection against transient voltages than a meter with a lower category rating.
Triplett manufactures test equipment for electricians, home security installers, and telecommunications technicians. The company, founded in 1904, is headquartered in Manchester, NH.

The case: the plastic is thick ABS. I feel like it could stand up to a lot of abuse.
Display: even though smallish, the display is very clear with good contrast. 3 and 3/4 digits is more than typical for a low cost meter. (This is a measure of resolution. Most multimeters in this compact form factor and price range are limited to 3 1/2 digits.)
Features: In addition to the usual, this measures capacitance (albeit small range), frequency (from a few Hz up to 10kHz), and duty cycle. It is also autoranging in all features.
Firmware/Controls: Layout is simple and straight forward. Nothing stands out as annoying or unusual.
Support: I had a couple of questions about the frequency and duty cycle features. My emails were answered within 24 hours by a senior product designer who not only knew the product but did actual testing of my specific problem to find the answers. Yes, I was shocked. I have the feeling this had to have been a fluke, and yet it really happened!
There are some quirks with frequency and duty cycle. I eventually discovered that the minimum voltage that can be tested is just shy of 5V, p-2-p. So you will not be able to use these features on your 3.3V DC circuits. Also, the leads need be reversed from what I expected; on a DC signal, the red lead must connect to ground. The frequency readings were spot on; however, the duty cycle appears to be less accurate. I've managed to get anywhere from a 0-2% consistent offset under different test conditions; it's probably most useful for comparing apples to other apples - but this seems to be in line with the duty cycle accuracy of other brands of low cost meters, as well.
Calibration: voltage between 1-20 volts read bit high.Read more ›
The casing is decent - even solid. Feels like it could take a couple of tumbles and keep on working. I bought this to throw in my backpack, so a few months should tell me worlds about its durability - I'm rough on my bag.
There is a plastic bit hanging from a black nylon cord at the bottom of the unit that is only used when you want to stand the unit up. It's finicky to use, but works well enough once in place. I had a few "Dammit, stay put" moments.
The Select, Range and Hold buttons feel like they are all soft keys, but work reliably with an audible tone to let you know you've made a selection. There are separate spots on the Dial for Volts AC and Volts DC, but you have to use the Select button on mA and uA settings to pick DC or AC measurements. The LCD has a spot to indicate if you are AC, but it is blank for DC. Also - the indicator is very small - but more on that in the display section.
The selector Dial has solid positive clicks, but there is an unused spot between Off and mA with no option. Not a big deal, but if you were going from Off to mA and the display was blank, it might take a few seconds to realize you had another click to go. I'm not sure if this spot draws more current than the off position at this time.
The probes are okay. The points were relatively sharp and the cable rating is present on the wire sheathing. The holder for the tips is almost thought out well. The retaining clip at the top rotates to let out/in the probes, but the tips can slip behind the catch and then its fun digging them out. I wish there was a bit more cable length.
The Display is ok at best.Read more ›
Not so many years ago several features on these Tripletts would have been found only on top-of-the-line professional-use-only multimeters, at breathtaking prices. The prices have come WAY down over the years, but those features are still very desirable. Auto-ranging, digital readout and continuity testing with an audible 'beep' are all wonderful things to have.
You could buy a six-pack of these for little more than $100. That, my friend, is a bargain!
