    Last Modified: May 14, 2018

    This topic introduces the configuration options on the Digital Multimeter (DMM) Soft Front Panel.

    Setting Description
    Measurement mode Specifies the type of measurement. Some options may be grayed out if a hardware resource conflict occurs.
    Range Specifies the range of the measurement. When you select Automatic, the DMM automatically chooses the range that suits the input signal.

    The Measurement Mode pull-down menu has the following options:

    Option Description
    DC voltage Measures the DC component of a voltage source.
    AC voltage Measures the AC component of a voltage source.
    DC current Measures the DC component of a current source.
    AC current Measures the AC component of a current source.
    Resistance Measures resistance.
    Capacitance Measures capacitance.
    Inductance Measures inductance.
    Diode Measures the voltage drop across a diode. When you select Diode, Range specifies the threshold for a valid diode measurement.
    Continuity Measures continuity. The threshold for continuity measurements is 15 Ω.

    In the Connections section, the SFP highlights the channels you should connect to depending on Measurement mode. For example, when Measurement mode is DC current or AC current, the Connections section highlights the channels as follows:

    When Measurement mode is Capacitance or Inductance, the Connections section highlights the terminals on the NI ELVIS III which you should connect to the device under test (DUT):
