PRESS RELEASE : Trend recording with the Fluke 289 DMM helps professionals trace long-term system performance

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in electronic test and measurement technology, has published a valuable series of application notes to help electricians and electronics professionals perform advanced electrical tests with their Fluke digital multimeters (DMMs).

Advanced DMMs such as the Fluke 289 Industrial Trending Digital Multimeter incorporate a multitude of sophisticated test and measurement capabilities. But some users may be unsure of how those capabilities are used, or why the tools are designed as they are. Fluke Application Notes, available through the Fluke website, are written and illustrated to take the mystery out, so Fluke users can solve problems and get the most from their Fluke test tools.

For instance, the Fluke 289 DMM can record events that take place in a test circuit over time. This enables the user to review results on the meter’s large display, 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. How the process was conducted in a real-world test is detailed in “Trend Recording and Analysis with the Fluke 289 DMM,” an application note now available from Fluke.
