Engineers pocket voltmeter. And the original box.
120 Volts Dc could have been the local mains voltage before 1930.
Add a memory or information about this object
- These meters, of which I have quite a collection, were used to measure the plate (i.e. anode) voltage of thermionic valves and their grid voltages. Typically the plate voltage was about 90V DC, as were the batteries used in 1930's radio/wireless sets. The lower voltage range was used to measure the voltage of the battery supplying power to the heater of the valve.
