Why does my sperry DM6450 multimeter read "connect terminal" even when both are connected?


Are you connecting your leads to the proper terminals on the meter? There are, what, four of them? Easy to mix up.

If it still isn't working, then you might have a bad connector on your multimeter.

you may have to switch the leads on the meter or replace its batteries. Check the internal fuses on the meter first.

How to test aa battery with greenlee dm-20


se the meter to dc volts. if is not automatic, it should be set at the 3 volt scale. Take the red lead of the meter and touch it to the positive side. The black goes on the negative side or the 'bottom, of the battery. Brand new it ill be about1.6volts+-5%. its usefullness is comprimised at 1.4 or 1.3, depending the appplication. Be sure the leads to the meter are in the correct sockets,

Does the Sperry DM-350A test for continuity? I can't seem to find a setting that works.


yes. But you have to change the LEADS down below. One must connect into the Omega connection at the bottom (looks like an upside down horseshoe). And the meter setting is where the arrow (?) symbol is. Touch the two leads together and it should "zero out". Now you're ready to check continuity.

Checking batteries


I assume a "DM-350a" is some kind of a digital multimeter. I Googled and found it might be a "A.W. Sperry DM350A 5 Function 17 Range Digital Multimeter" and looking at the ranges available on that meter, you can't really thest the battery "under load" the only reasonable way to test small batteries. the DC current only goes up to 200 milli amperes. A "C" or "D" size flashlight battery puts out 1 to 4 amps depending on conditions. That's 5 to 20 times the current readable by that meter. The volts on one of those batteries is probably 1.6 volts to 1.3 volts etc. If you live in the United States, I'd say go to Radio Shack and spend $5 to $15 and buy a battery tester like "Enercell Analog 9-Range Battery Checker, $14.99, Model 22-156, catalog # 22-156"
Then you and anyone in your family can read the instructions and test 8 or 9 different type batteries. Battery types: 1.5V button-cells, "AAA"/"N"/"AA"/"C"/"D", 6V, 9V, 12V, 15V and 22.5V..
This is not supposed to be an advertizement, and I have no interest in RadioShack,... but it's supposed to be instructional.

Small price, Good instruction to anyone who can read, and if anyone forgets, they can re-read. Testing a lot of batteries in a sitting goes very fast with these.

Differently, with the sperry, or any voltmeter, you'd have to select a resistor small enough to draw the current, and large enough not to overheat or burn, connect it and measure the loaded voltage drop, compare the voltage and current of the loaded battery, and compare it to that of a new battery, and a battery you might consider too weak for your application.. Voltage equals amps times resistance, and power equals amps squared times resistance... Really, buy a battery tester.

I just brought a sperry dm-350A to test the switches on my dryer I thought they would come with instructions on how to use it but it didn't. Is there a place where I can go and learn what the symbols...


Just got mine from home depot. Stick the black wire into the COM port and the red wire in the V port on the right. The red wire is the positive and the black is the ground. Touch the red tip to the positive and the black one to a ground. Turn the dial clockwise to the right and you are measuring your voltage(i left it on 200).

Measuring mA with a DMM


The most obvious solution to your problem is that you may have the meter simply connected backwards. To make life easy, Groovetubes sells a thing called a bias probe that makes biasing tube amps a breeze.
