This is the latest version of the VC97 Digital Multimeter. It has a large LCD display for easy reading and strong anti-magnetic properties. It has several extended features over other generic multimeters including measurement/testing for capacitance, frequency, duty cycle, temperature, advanced internal protection, diodes and transistor function tests. High input impedance (10MΩ) and operates from 3x AAA batteries (not included).

Competitors are selling the odler variants; the easiest method to spot older version is if the device doesn't have a yellow "Select" button on the top left. Older models do not have as good specifications or performance. There have also been some upgrades on the internal shielding.

  1. Review by David - Well made, very accurate, and has very good & useful functions, and "True RMS"
    Rating

    I am only new to the electronics hobby field, but a Mate of mine (who is very experienced in the hobby electronics & Computer field). who is trying to get me started in this area, advised me that the VC97 Multimeter (after extensive research) was the best of the cheaper Multimeters around, and that it gave very accurate readings (from his experience), and was very well laid out and had some very useful functions.. He brought the other Brand or version of it about 6mths ago, and was extremely happy with it;; & when I showed him the "Victor VC97" he was very impressed by it; as it had "True RMS", which his other brand didn't. He said that, that is a feature you usually only get in the much more expensive Professional Models.. I have noted too, that is is well made & of a pleasing quality plastic. (Posted on 2/03/2014)

    This is a well-built & accurate multimeter, you don't need a $200+ Fluke for hobby electronics. The continuity tester is immediate, no lag. And the auto-ranging is a welcome feature. Plus capacitance, transistors & diodes, frequency, temperature, and boasting good specs, this is a great upgrade from my $9.95 Jaycar toy. Thanks Core! (Posted on 31/01/2014)

  3. Review by kingsley - Inexpensive, lots of functionality, manual needs work. verified purchaser

    This is a nice meter. It provides a good range of tests, including the usual stuff, plus dioes, capacitence, and transistors. The killer feature for me is the auto-range. Call me lazy, but I just want to measure something, not take a guess at what I think the value should be, probe the value, guess again, probe again, rinse and repeat until I get my actual reading. This unit gives me that probe-and-go satisfaction.

    However, the manual needs a bit of work. It's not clear on the [Range] [Rel] and [Hold] buttons. Ok I worked out the [Hold], even Tom Noddy gets that one. The manual does explain the use of some of these buttons, except only within the context of some other operation. I shouldn't have to hunt for it though.

    So if i was able to give only 4.5 stars, I would take of a 1/2 star because of the manual. (Posted on 2/05/2013)
