This question already has an answer here:
- Current measurement maximum time 2 answers
On my multimeter, near the 10 A connector it says
10 A MAX 10sec EACH 15min. I usually measure currents less than 1 A so I never cared about this.
Is it correct to assume that if the measured current is lower than 10 A, I can take the measurement in more than 10 sec and I don't have to wait 15 minutes?
I measured only a few times a current of about 4 A and I'm sure I didn't follow those time limits and the multimeter is still working (so far).
I read the manual, there's nothing written about this.
