Military Testmeters types C D E F and H

In appearance these are very similar to the commercial range of AVOmeters.

The following information has been taken from AP 10955H Vol1 Section2 Nov1943

"Testrneters, types C, D, E, F, and H are self»contained instruments, providing the means of
measuring wide ranges of voltage, current, and resistance values, and although light and easily portable
they are reliable and robust. The instruments are dust and weatherproof and are suitable for both
temperate and tropical climates. They are housed in suitable weatherproof cases and the ranges
covered are controlled by switches and/or sockets mounted on the front of the instrument. A scale,
protected with glass, and appropriately marked, is mounted on the front of the case, and these,
together with the necessary terminals, comprise the complete testrneter control equipment. All
screws and detachable parts are secured against looseness due to vibration."




It seems that by the time of this publication the services had accepted the Automatic Coil Winder Company designs as the standard as pictures of the instruments accompany the descriptions in the above specification.
