The problem is that there is NO electronics in the E-Meter to do any of this, except to measure resistance. I've taken two apart; there's nothing in them except the parts needed to be an ohmmeter and some junk that is presumably set dressing (resistors in series, parts not connected to anything, etc.). -- -- Christophe
