PRESS RELEASE : Action video dramatizes strength of Fluke multimeters

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has produced a fun animated video that makes an important point.

Using the Fluke 289 Industrial Trending Digital Multimeter (DMM), busy facility maintenance professionals can collect revealing system performance data without getting pinned down.

The video is set in a secret industrial complex. Mission: Capture 10,000 readings. Complete with ominous music and furtive figures darting around heavy equipment, it shows how the Fluke 289 DMM can be attached to a circuit and collect information, even while the operator is busy elsewhere. In this case, dodging an armed security team. See the video here.

The Fluke 289 DMM can record events that take place in a test circuit over time, without the user being present. In today’s environment of decreased staffing and greater work load, it’s like having another electrician on staff. The user can later review the saved data on the meter’s large display to spot anomalies and identify trends. The collected data can also be downloaded to a PC, where powerful FlukeView® Forms software makes it easy to create custom graphs and reports.

A Fluke application note explaining event recording and analysis with the Fluke 289 DMM is available with other Fluke case studies and notes on the Fluke application notes web page for DMMs.
