    Default Measuring "Charge Coil" and "Trigger Coil" voltages. . .

    Happy Holidays Gents!! Has anyone tried to use the "min/max" function versus using a "DVA" adapter? Haven't tried it yet and was wondering if "min/max" is fast enough to capture the spikes....thanks for any input gents

    I have a Fluke 88 with a DAV adapter and a Stevens peak reading meter. I have only used the 88 and adapter a few times. I have had the Stevens about 12 years. I like the Stevens, and dont quite trust the DAV adapter yet, although the results I get with the 88 and adapter match the Stevens.
