Testing voltage is very important and in this article, you will learn how to test voltage Or how to test ac voltage of your incoming electrical supply. Testing voltage is important because if your incoming voltage is low or high then it makes your electric appliances burn.
How to test voltage using a digital multimeter
In this post for testing voltage, we use a digital multimeter as a voltage tester. For alternative current potential difference measurement, we can use a digital multi-meter by following the method.
Mostly in our digital multimeter, we have options for testing ac voltage which are like 200V and 500V. For 110 volts testing, we use 200 volts option and for 200 to 500 volts testing we use the 500 volts option.
For testing AC voltage first of all select the AC voltage testing option by using the selector switch as shown below image.
Plug in the multimeter probes in an electrical outlet/socket or connect the probes to the Electric supply as shown below image.

In the above image, the multimeter shows a voltage of 212 volts, which means that the incoming supply voltage is 212 volts. Now if you have any questions regarding testing voltage then you can ask me in below comment section.
