Definition of milliammeter in English:



  • An instrument for measuring electric current in milliamperes.

    ‘As the sensitivity of such milliammeters is usually low, it is necessary first to amplify the polarographic current.’
    • ‘For example, the milliammeter may be calibrated to read in cubic feet per minute.’
    • ‘X-ray machines used for diagnosis or treatment therefore need to have voltmeters and milliammeters for proper adjustment.’
    • ‘The reading on the milliammeter is a direct measurement of the amount of light reaching the Earth at that point.’
