  • Definition: Any instrument used for measurement. The term is often compounded with a prefix to denote a specific type of meter: for example, ammeter, voltmeter, flowmeter, or pedometer. Some meters not only indicate but also integrate (that is, combine and summarize) and/or record measurements.
