Question
Dear ZZ

Do the features of Galvanometer, Ammeter and Voltmeter are integrated in Digital Multimeter?.

In case yes,Are the above instruments still required?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
It depends on the meter.  Some do, some don't.

Most digital meters of the common type include voltage, current and resistance values but not galvanometer values.  But, they can easily be adapted to do so.

Only galvanometer functions are not so popular outside of student laboratories as part of the first courses in dc circuits.

You can google to find many, many kinds of multimeters available commercially which cost from under USD$$100 to the thousands.


Hoping this will assist you.
