This meter is from 1985 and made in Austria. It looks a bit odd but it is a nice and well made meter. Everything “clicks” together. ┬áIt was a barn find. It was stored in a leaky barn for many years. And after all those years it still works and all the plastic clips are still not brittle.

The meter is well protected although it does not look like modern meters that use the big special fuses. This meter worked for most functions but not the low current ranges. It was plugged in to the mains (230V) by accident. The only fault was a dead TVS and fuse. After repair I calibrated it and it is still well within specs.

There are four inputs in the back. The metal stand can be used to set it under an angle or hang it. It has a leather etui but the manual that came with it was from an other model that has a beeper/continuity function. My meter has that position in the function knob and generates a signal but lacks the beeper circuit.
