Question
Multi-meters capable of measuring “frequency”?

Dear Expert,

I know the frequency of a signal can be easily measured with an oscilloscope.
My question is: are there multi-meters capable of measuring “frequency”?

Thank you,
Leonardo

Answer
There are many kinds of frequency meters and counters.  It depends on what frequency band you are interested in and at what precision.  Here are some examples:
