If you are looking for a handy smartphone multimeter you might be interested in this new device called the Mooshimeter which has been designed to offer users a multichannel circuit testing metre that displays its results on your smartphone screen for just $99. Check out the video after the jump to see the unique and useful Mooshimeter smartphone multimeter in action.
The Mooshimeter smartphone multimeter uses Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity to make the wireless connection and is capable of measuring 600V and 10A with 24bit resolution from up to 150 feet away, while logging results for up to 6 months.
“Almost every digital multimeter will only let you use one mode at a time, meaning that to watch relationships in an active system you need to use multiple meters. Most have a front panel dominated by a numeric LCD display and a gigantic mode selection knob. And having the display mounted on the measurement hardware makes it very difficult to measure moving or enclosed systems, because the user must have clear line of sight to the meter to be able to read it.”
The Mooshimeter’s current measurement mode introduces 20 microvolt/milliamp of burden voltage when measuring in 2uA steps over a full 10A range. Capture the sleep currents and the active currents of your digital circuits without autoranging. Simultaneous voltage and current also lets you see more detail on how your system performs across its operational range.”
The Mooshimeter smartphone multimeter is currently over on the Dragon Innovation website and has already passed its pledge goal of $52,000 with still 13 days remaining on the project. So if you think the Mooshimeter smartphone multimeter is something your projects could benefit from make a pledge now to be one of the first to own the application.
