Purkeys released a new product, the Multimeter Training Unit, to help fleets train technicians on a heavy-duty vehicle’s electrical system. The MTU allows technicians to hone their skills with a multimeter in a controlled environment before practicing on a vehicle.

Purkeys Sales and Service Engineer Larry Rambeaux demonstrates how to use the MTU to practice using a voltmeter to read millivolts. This feature allows technicians to understand how to read the meter and avoid misdiagnosing components.

Understanding the difference between a millivolt and regular voltage reading is important. If technicians accidentally reading the wrong voltage it can effect their ability to properly diagnose electrical issues. The MTU helps technicians practice with a multimeter and learn what all of the functions mean.
