Overload Risk

Hi guys

i have a DMM 34465A. Is it risky to let the Multimeter go into overload?

The point is i want to measure the standby current of my microcontroller (some µA) with a good resolution (range 10µA or 100µA, not auto). When the microcontroller wakes up, there are like 20 - 100 mA, and the multimeter shows overload (thats ok for me).

 

Is it safe for the multimeter to go into overload?

 

Best regards

Dorian
