Peak-reading


Peak-reading

A peak-reading electrical instrument or meter is one which measures the peak value of a waveform, rather than its mean value or RMS value.

As an example, when making audio tape recordings it is desirable to use a recording level that is just sufficient to saturate the tape at the loudest sounds, regardless of the average sound level. A peak-reading meter is used to set the recording level.
