Does someone have recommendations for a bench-top DMM?
I'm currently looking at a Siglent SDM3065X, but it's quite expensive... I'd prefer a used 6½ digit one, but getting used gear in Europe is hard (and importing really expensive).

"but elen, i thought you already had a multimeter at home!"
Multimeter (UNI-T UT804) at home:

@ln After tearing it down and measuring every relevant signal, I found the reason why the serial output was not working.

It was not turned on. 🤦‍♀️

@daniel_bohrer @ln normally something like: max numbers shown are 3999999 or 5999999

@daniel_bohrer it's that usually the first digit goes only from 0 to 4 or 5. It's basically saying that the precision is n full digits and not enough for one more full digit, but half of one.

E.g. you have a range of 2V when measuring 1.234567, the first digit, 1, isn't a full digit.
