    I've looked for hours!

    I'm searching for a mountable digital voltmeter that can handle up to 70 volts. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be a lot of help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Get a multimeter instead.

    A good Fluke might cost a couple hundred US, but it's worth it.

    Amazon.com has them.


    Let me warm up first....don't want to pull a hammy.

    Actually a B&K Precision DMM will do the job really well also. Bit cheaper then Fluke and just as accurate.

    You could also just use a voltage divider (two resistors) and get accurate results.

    If you check the product data sheet on this one they show you how to make it work up to 2000 V

    Can you tell me that 70 volts is AC or DC? Just asking.
    My digital voltmeter can measure 220 volt AC. I bought it at my local store.

    I think just two resistor is not enough because each resistor have difference value. I think if you want it precision you should use multiturn.
