Chapter 1 Introduction

1.1 Background

In this day and age (2011), the name AVO meter is familiar. Almost all households have an AVO meter.

Now every household cannot be separated from the use of electricity. In this modern era, almost all activities require electric power. Pumping water with an electric pump, cooling food and preserving it using the refrigerator, watching television, moreover at night you have to turn on the lights, all of that needs electricity. If there are problems with power tools, first look at the damage visually. If it doesn’t work, then you need an electricity measurement using an AVO meter.

Not necessarily everyone can use the AVO meter, maybe in a household, mostly only 1 person can use it and know what it is. Few also know how it works (only those who specifically learn about electricity).

1.2 Objective

The purpose of writing this paper is to explain to ordinary people about AVO meters and how to use them.

1.3 Scope of Material

  1. Definition of AVO meter.
  2. History of the AVO meter.
  3. How the AVO meter works.
  4. How to use the AVO meter.
  5. AVO meter development.

Chapter 2 Basic Theory

2.1 AVO Meter

AVO stands for Ampere Volt Ohm. The meter here can be defined as a measuring instrument. AVO meter is a tool that can measure current (amperes), voltage (volts), resistance (ohms).

2.2 Charge (Coulumb)

In this world, there are 2 charges, namely positive and negative charges. There is also a neutral charge, where the molecule has the same positive and negative power. If the load is like (++, — ) will reject reject. When the charges are different…
