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 the voltage drop feature works on the MTU. This feature allows technicians to understand voltage drop and it relates to the current lost in a circuit.

Understanding voltage drop is important. By testing a circuit under a load technicians will be able to see if there is a voltage drop and if a component is working properly. When technicians know how to use a multimeter and what the different readings mean they can see what circuits need further testing.
