1) Digital Multimeter – DMM
This is a benchtop style multimeter. Great for everyday use, voltage, amperage, resistance, continuity, some even do temperature and capacitance.
2) Digital Tester
Sometimes referred to as a multimeter because it actually does test multiple different values like a DMM, but really it’s called a tester. Nobody will get upset with you if you call it a multimeter, almost all electricians do. Great for everyday use, voltage, amperage, resistance, continuity.
3) Tick Tracer
Works by capacitive coupling, not actually sensing voltage between two objects, however still sensing an electric field presence. Great for identifying the presence of power, just be careful not to rely on it to tell you anything about WHAT is happening with the circuit.
4) Plug Tester
For testing receptacles. Recommend getting the one with the “GFCI test button” on it for testing your GFCI receptacles. Also great for diagnosing miswired receptacles
