    Your a little off there, rpm MUST be 62.5Hz, unless your in Europe and several other contries at 50Hz

    Thumbs up

    False alarm I was pushing the hz button twice it was giving me % which was 49.9 or 50 whatever that means when I pushed it once it was about right 62.3 to 62.5 sorry about that but thanks that's the first time that's happened to me with this meter I've never had to press it twice when I pressed it once it was staying on volts that's why I was pressing again

    Default 62.5 Hz? How about 140!

    Can you help me out on my welder? I read in many places that I need 62.5 Hz at high idle no load. SO I went out to check mine. I get 140 Hz and I am only at low idle! Do you know what is going on here? thank you

    Find a different meter, start your own post, list your machine type, high idle and low idle volts and hertz at the a/c outlet.

    Many of the Millers have a 100hz outlet, whilst welding. and a low idle setting for power . So you want to turn down your machine if checking on the 100hz receptacle
