Unboxing and setting up our new bench top multi-meter

There have been quite a few articles i’ve done that would have benefited from the ability not only to test things instantaneously but log the data over time. To that end I recently purchased an MS8040 bench meter by Mastech I found a particularly good deal on. This isn’t the highest end meter ever but I do anticipate will be more than sufficient to scratch that itch I’ve had for. Below is both the unboxing and initial tour of the meter and a video containing the somewhat excessive efforts I went through to actually make use of the data logging features.
