EVERETTE, WA-Fluke Corp., provider of portable electronic test and measurement technology, has posted four brief online videos that explain the features of the newest Fluke digital multimeters (DMMs).

DMMs such as the Fluke 289 Industrial Trending Digital Multimeter and Fluke 287 Electronics Multimeter incorporate sophisticated test and measurement capabilities. New Fluke online videos are available to help users understand and capabilities such as TrendCapture, data logging and Min/Max/Average testing.

Four video clips are available, covering:

  • TrendCapture, which enables the user to record events and display the results on the large display screen built into the Fluke 287 and 289 DMMs.

  • Data Logging allows users to record measurements (up to 15,000 events over time) in the meter, before downloading the results to a PC. With data logging, the user can continue to gather information, even while getting work done at another location.

  • Min/Max/Average measurement enables users to capture values and see fluctuations in signal levels, then retrieve the results later by pushing a single button.

  • A fourth video explains the user-friendly features of the Fluke 287 and Fluke 289, such as the large, bright backlit display screen and on-screen help available by pushing one button.
