EVERETT, Wash. – Twenty educational institutions in the U.S. will receive advanced electrical and electronic test instruments from Fluke Corporation, the world’s leading supplier of handheld test and measurement equipment, through the Fluke Education Grant Program.

Each winning school will receive two of Fluke’s newest and most capable test instruments designed for the electrical and electronics industries: the Fluke 289 and Fluke 287 Logging Digital Multimeters.

The Fluke Education Grant Program, announced in October, 2007, is targeted at community colleges, universities and training programs across the U.S. and Canada. Winners were chosen by a review committee of electronics professionals. They examined many program elements, including the breadth of course offerings and the types and numbers of certificates and degrees conferred.

The Fluke 287 is a high-accuracy logging digital multimeter designed with advanced features for electronics professionals. It has logging and graphing capability that enables users to quickly document design performance and see trend information directly on the meter display without waiting to download logged readings to a PC. The Fluke 287 lists in the U.S. for $499.95.

The Fluke 289 high performance multimeter enables technicians to log data and review it graphically on-screen, so they can solve complex problems faster in electronics, plant automation, power distribution, and electro-mechanical equipment.
