autoranging

[′ȯd·ō‚rānj·iŋ]
(engineering)
Automatic switching of a multirange meter from its lowest to the next higher range, with the switching process repeated until a range is reached for which the full-scale value is not exceeded. Also known as automatic ranging.

The DC resistance meters also feature discrete and autoranging measurements for comparator, binning, and statistical displays.
introduced two high-power system power-supply families: the Advanced Power System (APS) family of 1-and 2-kW power models for demanding ATE applications, and the N8900 Series featuring programmable, 5-, 10-and 15-kW units with autoranging outputs for basic ATE applications.
Autoranging delivers increased resolution across diverse applications
Single outputs, ranging from 5 to 48 vdc, are provided from a 90- to 132-vac or 180- to 264-vac autoranging input.
Operating from an 85-264V AC autoranging input, the PSU is available in both 12V and 24V versions and features fan cooling as standard, enabling it to deliver 200W continuously at the maximum permissible ambient temperature of 70[degrees]C, with a peak output capability of 300W.
