RE: My meter is scaled to 200 ma.

"Most labeled "mA" that have a low scale (500mA or less) are 200mV DC meters without an internal shunt."

If I understand, you're saying the meters are mostly 0.2V FS, and it's the difference in coil resistance that provides different FS current readings. That would mean a 200mA DC panel meter is likely to have a coil resistance of one ohm. Is that correct?
