Simpson 260® Series 6
Analog - VOM
Simpson Catalog Number Unknown
The front on the Simpson 260-6 changes from the Series 5, by the addition of a "transit" position
at the 500 MA position on the function switch. The 50 Micro Amp jack is also marked as 250 MV.
The Series 6 also has a +1 Volt D.C. jack and uses the 0 -10 D.C. Scale.
The A.C. / D.C. 1000V jacks are now combined into one. ( Thanks Zack! )
The Simpson 260-6 has the Taut Band Suspension dial.
The 260 Series 6 is the first to have the three Amp-Clamp scales.
Controls include: Ohms zero adjustment, AC - DC Voltage selector switch,
and a 12 position Function / Range selector switch. Eight recessed probe jacks.
The off or "transit" position is at the 500 MA location.
The rear case now has rubber feet instead of raised bumps at the four corners.
This back case is from a roll top version, and does not have the "adapter lock" feature.
More inside views linked below.
This is the first model to use the NEDA 13 F "D" cell and NEDA 1604A (9 Volt) batteries combination.
The separate battery / fuse cover only allows access to the 1 amp fuse, you must remove the
back cover to replace the 2 amp fuse.
Case Size: 5¼ " x 7 " x 3⅛ " - Weight: 3 Pounds
The Adjust-A-View handle can also support the meter in a sloping position for viewing.
