B&K model 290 "Electronic Multimeter"

Here's a real beauty, and a fine addition to any work bench. One of B&Ks last offerings of an analog Multimeter. B&K dubs it as an;  Electronic Multimeter, I call it a Solid State VTVM. It performs like a VTVM with a high impedance input but has more sensitivity and a lower "ohms" range and other features not found in most early VTVM's. Here are some of the specs:

  • DC volts: 50mv to 1500 volts in 10 ranges

  • Input resistance:  15 megohms

  • AC volts: same as DC

  • Frequency response: 5Hz to 750kHz (depending on range)

  • OHMS (low range): RX.1 to RX 1meg

  • OHMS (normal range): RX1 to RX1meg

  • PLUS many more highly desirable functions early VTVM's will not do!

In near mint condition, no dings or damage, clean as the day it was made (inside and out). There's just one caveat; the original probe was missing when I acquired i. So I modified a probe of another brand just a bit which looks fine and works like the original.
