Voltage Stabilizer

A mechanical (bimetal) or electronic device used to maintain voltage at a set level. In instrument systems this prevents readings changing as system voltage changes.

Voltmeter

Instrument for measuring electric potential. Can usually be set to read AC or DC on different ranges.

Volts

Unit of electromotive force. Potential difference.
