Sommige multimeters kun je op weerstand meten zetten, met een piepsignaal (het zogenaamde doorpiepen in het “vakjargon”)
→ en français = mettre le multimètre en mode bip
-* mode “test de la continuité du circuit par bip”

“When testing for continuity, a multimeter beeps based on the resistance of the component being tested. That resistance is determined by the range setting of the multimeter. Examples: If the range is set to 400.0 Ω, a multimeter typically beeps if the component has a resistance of 40 Ω or less.” (
“Let me clear up something about multimeters with continuity beep. It will beep when connected to something when the ohms it sees is below a certain level. I don't remember what that value is. On mine I think it's 20 ohms or around that. Which depending on what you are working on, does not always indicate a short. Also if I connect it to the battery lead of a quad it will beep, until the capacitors are charged.” (
