Analog Multimeter continuous deflection of a pointer over a scale represents the value of quantity being measured. Insite analog multimeter there will be current measuring moving coil meter with appropriate internal resistors which will be brought into circuit based on range switch selection. It is used to measure AC and DC current as well as voltage. It is also used to measure resistance. Multimeters are available to measure capacitors and transistors.
The actual resistance of analog multimeter depends on range chosen as well as on sensitivity.
Analog multimeters can sometimes be difficult to read because they display data as a needle moving along a scale—this can be a benefit because the display of increased voltage (or resistance and so forth) is tangible, but can be hard for those unfamiliar with the scale.
Like their digital counterparts, analog multimeters can measure a range of different electrical outputs, such as voltage, current, and resistance—as done with digital multimeters, a function must be selected and a corresponding range must be set.
