Logging multimeter and software kit
02 November 2007
Fluke, a developer of handheld electronic test and measurement technology, is offering a Fluke 289/FVF Combo Kit which bundles FlukeView Forms software with the latest Fluke 289 true-rms Industrial Logging Multimeter for diagnosing problems in electronics, plant automation, power distribution and electromechanical equipment.
The Fluke 289 features an extra-large, quarter-VGA, dot matrix display showing results graphically, backed by an enhanced user interface with on-board help and soft-key interface. The Fluke 289 can log multiple sessions unattended in the field and incorporates advanced data logging and TrendCapture to help track down elusive, intermittent problems faster than before. An interface ensures easy data transfer to a PC, on which FlukeView Forms software enables users to document, store and analyse readings, and then convert them into meaningful graphs and tables for professional reports. Logged data from up to six time periods or six meters can be overlaid to find cause and effect relationships or for condition monitoring.
The high-accuracy Fluke 289 Logging Multimeter quickly records electrical performance and shows trend information, storing up to 10,000 readings. It features a Lo-Pass filter, for accurate voltage and frequency measurements on adjustable speed motor drives and other electrically noisy equipment, as well as Lo-ohms and Lo-impedance measurement ranges.
The instrument set-up is customisable to save time and increase productivity. Multiple save options and automatic time stamping allow convenient recall of field measurements. Peak capture can record transients as fast as 250 microseconds. A relative mode removes test lead resistance from low ohms or capacitance measurements.
The Fluke 289 has an ac bandwidth of 100kHz, a 0.025% basic dc accuracy and includes a temperature measurement function. It has a two-terminal 50-ohm range with 1 milliohm resolution and 10mA source current, useful for measuring and comparing differences in motor winding or contact resistance. A LoZ Volts function eliminates ghost voltages, and can test for live power. The meter withstands hazardous 8,000V spikes caused by load switching and faults on industrial circuits, and complies with second edition IEC and ANSI electrical safety standards.
