Do these meters pretty much read average watts and not so much peak ? And how accurate are these meters ? (New )
Just seems to read on the tight side !!
Look for meters that require a 12v power connection other than for the meter light, those ones have active peak reading circuitry.
The Daiwa 901 model are popular on this forum and can be bought new around $140 or less.
Don't let the cross needle type scare you off, once you get used to them you may find they're better. The modulation meter on a 3 window Dosey is useless.
They will have you send it to their repair guy in Indiana. He mainly works on Dosy but can work on other meters and can calibrate most all meters. Very nice people, been dealing with them for years.Somewhere around here there was a post about that model Dosy, or one like it, and if I remember correctly Dosy was good about accepting it for recalibration.
I doubt that any amount of calibration will make it perfect across the scale, but at least they can make it read as designed.
For the most part, I view these things as a relative measuring tool.
Ok thanks for your helpThey will have you send it to their repair guy in Indiana. He mainly works on Dosy but can work on other meters and can calibrate most all meters. Very nice people, been dealing with them for years.
Now as for Dosy, the're truck stop quality meters. The parts they use to manufacture their meters are the cheapest of cheap. The last set I bought was a dud.
I believe this is the number for QP Inc repair (574) 295-6884
