Dual-display meters feature 6.5 digit resolution, graphical display modes, and 14 measurement functions for test, R&D and service applications
Fluke Europe B.V., the European sales and service organization of Fluke Corporation, announces the new Fluke 8845A and 8846A Precision Digital Multimeters, featuring 6.5 digit resolution, dual display that shows data in graphic or numeric formats and multifunction measurement capability. These high-accuracy meters are designed to provide industry-leading value for bench or systems applications including manufacturing test, research and development, and service.
The Fluke 8845A and 8846A have 14 measurement functions, extending the capability of a standard DMM with wider ranges and features to easily measure temperature, capacitance, period and frequency. The 2 x 4 ohms function uses patented split terminal jacks that allow users to perform 4-wire measurements using only two leads instead of four. The meters deliver best-in-class analog performance, measuring volts dc with an accuracy of up to 0.0024 %, have a voltage range of 100 mV to 1000 V with up to 100 nV resolution, current range of 100 mA to 10 A with up to 100 pA resolution, and have a wide ohms measurement range from 10 ohms to 1 giga-ohm with up to 10 micro-ohms resolution.
The Fluke 8845A and 8846A feature a large, bright dual display that enables users to measure two different parameters of the same signal from one test connection and view the results in graphic or numeric format. With graphical display modes including TrendPlot paperless chart recording, statistics and histograms, users can analyze data in real-time for efficient troubleshooting of signal quality issues such as drift, intermittants and stability.
Designed for easy integration in automated test systems, the Fluke 8845A and 8846A meters emulate several legacy bench DMMs, and feature input terminals on both the front and rear of the instrument to simplify connections. Both meters are equipped with serial, IEEE-488 and Ethernet interfaces, and provide multiple drivers to help ensure compatibility with existing or new standards. The Fluke 8846A has a wider feature set, including higher throughput and accuracy, the ability to measure temperature and capacitance, and a USB device port allowing users to save measurement results to a USB memory drive for later analysis on a personal computer.
