Fluke 289 Digital Multimeter
Every electronics, electrical, computer hardware, infrastructure and networking technician relies on a multimeter for accurate readings of voltage, amperage, and resistance. The Fluke 289 Series multimeter is a digital multimeter from the world’s largest manufacturer of precision electronic measurement and testing equipment. The 289 Series is designed for specialized use in industrial environments.
The 289 series features an innovative logging mechanism for measured data and the capability to capture data trends across multiple readings for transmission to another device like a PDA or laptop. This capability allows the test device to be attached to the test surface without manual positioning or handling. This multimeter features its own customized FlukeView Forms software that analyzes and represents data captured through the test tool for easy viewing and interpretation.
The Fluke 289 Series digital multimeter has a 50,000-count measurement capability and a white-background multi-stream VGA display. The logging function is able to capture data for more than 12,000 minutes of continuous readings from a variety of sources. The device is also able to capture 10,000 points of data and display the trend of a reading over time without having to connect to any other digital device.
The 289 Series is the latest in the Fluke line of digital multimetersthat are designed to observe readings in processes over a period. For electrical and electronic applications, the device is equipped with a ‘LoZ Volts’ feature to accurately measure voltage by compensating for voltages that appear on circuits that are not designed to carry them. These undesirable voltages are called ‘ghost voltages’ and influence the multimeter readings adversely. The 289 Series digital multimeter is able to diagnose these voltages correctly.
Recording and Capturing Data
Some of the user-friendly features of the Fluke 289 series digital multimeter include a timestamp mechanism for each reading as well as the capability to save a series of readings and recall these readings for later viewing. The multimeter is calibrated to measure 10 A continuously while at 100 kHz bandwidth and is capable of temperature measurements with a 50V to 1000V DC resolution.
While the 289 Series is equipped to record, store and display multiple reading streams on the device itself, its versatility as an industrial-grade multimeter is seen in its USB interface capability with a desktop, laptop, or PDA device. The 289 Series has a multi-lingual firmware that can be upgraded remotely and stay up to date.
Although all Fluke products are tested for safety and the 289 Series is no exception, being safety certified as CAT III at 1000 V and CAT IV at 600 V. Considered one of the most reliable and durable products in the industry among enthusiasts and professionals, the Fluke Multimeter 289 Series is certified by all major agencies. The device operates on six AA size alkaline batteries as a power source.
The Fluke 289 series is the choice of professionals worldwide for its accuracy, versatility of use in multiple environments and significant utility. The devices new continuous logging and replay functions make it the digital multimeter of choice.
