Description: It seems like everything plugs in to your computer these days, and this digital multimeter is no exception. This auto-ranging multimeter will test AC and DC voltage and current as well as capacitance, resistance, frequency and even temperature. It features a large, easily readable display for use in the field as well as the ability to connect to your computer for data logging, processing and analysis. It has all of the basic functions that you expect from a good digital multimeter including continuity check (with buzzer), diode test and data hold. Data logging and analysis software is included on a mini-CD and you can also download it below.

Note: The included CD contains all versions of the software. The version that has been tested to work with this unit is version 3.0. You can also just use the download link below.

Note: This meter does have a USB interface, but it’s not clearly RS232. The meter needs the proprietary software to function and you cannot simply read the data directly without a driver and the software.

Customer Comments

  • Really? It clearly has an rs232 interface internally and a USB converter bolted on to cope with the current lack of serial ports on modern PCs but in 2015 a new product with closed USB drivers? Really?

    In 2015 it should be mandatory for a new design to not only have a standard USB interface but to have a published format for the data on the wire.

    And since you are supposed to be selling to people who tinker, how about expose the TTL serial interface on a header to allow it to interface to a microcontroller or your existing USB to TTL Serial interfaces?

    • When I saw it had a USB port, I thought: “Must Buy”. Then I see it has some strange driver. Well, often these devices that are not badged “USB” use an FTDI chip or one of the other USB-to-serial converters, and then squat on some random VID/PID so that they don’t have to pay the USB consortium to use the logo.

      So… I download the .rar file. And….. I find a Windows self-extracting .exe. So far in 2015, I have not had to boot Windows, and this isn’t enough to motivate me. Maybe someone that buys one of these units can look at how it enumerates itself on the USB bus, and maybe try a CDCACM driver on it by associating the VID/PID. Or maybe some Windows user can poke around the same way.

      In any case, the temperature probe is nice in a meter in this price range. I had to pay out for a pretty spiffy Fluke in order to get a temperature probe.

      Wake me when the USB connectivity works on Linux or a Mac. I’d buy it instantly if I could interface data logging scripts to it.

  • The google machine gave the following link as the first result when searching for “Victor 70C”: link Note the very stylish color scheme on the Chinese version…

  • 232? Really?

  • Have the Mac users succeeded using this Multimeter? Member #686974, have you gotten any “sensible data out of it” yet?

  • On my mac it showed up as a cp2102 and if I install the usb serial driver from Silabs if shows up as a serial port is this a new version of the device? I was expecting a HID device. I will let you know if I can get sensible data out of it.

  • If it is not OS agnostic, the so-called “USB” port is useless to me. E-mail me when it is a “real” USB port. Otherwise I think it would be a valuable instrument.

  • Is there a MAC driver available yet?

  • could anyone confirm if this information and linux solution for the victor70c also applies to this meter?

  • I’d also like to know: Are the AC measurements RMS? and Is the USB electrically isolated? If not, you could run into problems quickly measuring circuits connected to an AC line.


  • Could someone verify the DC and AC current ranges, the above is not quite the same as the USER MANUAL, thank you

  • What is the resolution? Reading the manual, I get the impression that this is 3 ¾ digits. Is that correct?
