Model 8 UNIVERSAL AVOMETER Mk. II (from 1960 advert)
"This instrument has been produced in response to a demand for a high sensitivity version of the world-famous Model 7 AvoMeter. It follows the standard design, retaining the traditional simplicity of operation and compact portability. It has a sensitivity of 20,000 ohms per volt on all D.C. ranges and 1,000 ohms per volt on A.C. ranges from 100 V upwards. In addition to the many well-known features such as the automatic overload protection device, dual-knob range selection, etc., it has a push-button for reversing the polarity of the movement to obviate the inconvenience of changing over the leads when encountering opposite potentials in respect to a common reference point.
CURRENT: A.C. and D.C. 0 to 10 amps.
VOLTAGE: A.C. and D.C. 0 to 2,500 volts. RESISTANCE: 0 to 20 megohms (with internal batteries);,O to 200 megohms (with external D.C. supply).
DECIBELS: -15 db to + 15 dB.
ACCURACY - Where applicable, all AvoMeters and AvoMinors meet the standards of accuracy laid down in Section 6 of British Standard Specification 89/1954.
Shrouded plug in type leads are now supplied with all AvoMeters."
Most AVO meters can be dated from the last 3 or 4 digits of the serial number under the right hand end of the scale. These define the month and year of manufacture. For example No. 105043-360 would mean that this one was made in March 1960.
