DMM basic measurement functions

As an example: oscilloscope diagnostic board AKTAKOM AEE-1017-V1 testing modes are given.

AC/DC Voltage (parallel connection to the circuit) & Current (serial! connection to the break in circuit)

e.g.: sine output (3V/5kHz)

AC Voltage Line Frequency ("Hz" button)

e.g.: "FM" output (5kHz)

Resistance measurement

e.g.: 4.5 kOhm resistor


e.g.: SMD capacitor

Frequency (logic)

e.g.: Counter impulse frequency

Continuity (sound buzzer)

e.g.: between different "ground" points of the circuit

Temperature (K type probe)

e.g.: micro-chip surface temperature

Relative measurements (offset)

e.g.: leads resistance compensation

Diode test

e.g.: diode forward and backward Voltage drop

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does AKTAKOM AMM-1061 multimeter have auto power off function?
  • How can I deactivate Auto Power Off function of AKTAKOM AMM-1061 multimeter?
  • How DMM is designed (disassembled view)
  • How to replace or install the batteries in AM-1060?

  • Does AKTAKOM AMM-1061 multimeter have auto power off function?

    Yes, it does. There is Auto Power Off function in AMM-1061: the device power automatically goes off if you do not use the device within 30 minutes. If you’d like to switch the device on after it was automatically powered off press any button or use the rotary switch.


    How can I deactivate Auto Power Off function of AKTAKOM AMM-1061 multimeter?

    Auto Power Off function can’t be disabled in AMM-1061 multimeter.


    How DMM is designed (disassembled view)

    Front panel covers LCD, button board, rotary function switch gear and main plated circuit board:

    *Rubber strip between the back and front chassis covers protects from water and dust.

    Protective fuses are mounted near the inputs and sound buzzer is placed behind the LCD.

    *There is also an extra fuse fixed at the buttom (for several models)

    How to replace or install the batteries in AM-1060?

    When the batteries become exhausted or drop below the operating voltage, “BAT” indicator will appear in the LCD display. In this case the battery should be replaced, however in-spec. measurements may still be made for several hours after "Low battery indicator" appears before the instrument become inaccurate.

    WARNING! To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before removing the battery cover.

    "DC 1.5V" type AAA (e.g. AM-1060)

    1. Open the battery cover by loosing the screws with the cross-point screwdriver

    2. Carefully pull out the buttery carrier and take off the old batteries

    3. Plug the new batteries of the proper type in the holder and put it back

    4.Close the battery cover and reinstate the cover

    After completion make sure you don’t have any spare parts

    If you do find spare parts, you must start all over
