When paired with the U1583B AC current clamp, the U1273AX supports current measurements without breaking the circuit under test, says Agilent. The multimeter presents 4-1/2-digital resolution on an OLED display that provides readings with a 2000-to-1 contrast ratio and 160º viewing angle. AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES
December 27, 2012 - Electro Industries/GaugeTech (EIG) has announced new features for the Shark 200 multifunction power and energy meter with data-logging and extensive I/O, claiming to offer enhanced frequency measurement to provide accuracy to 0.001%. This feature allows the meter to be used for power system frequency analysis and as a high performance frequency transducer, says the company. Additional utility features include improved real-time clock synchronizing for more accurate load profiling, wider dynamic voltage under-range, more communication port selections and many more functions, it adds.ELECTRO INDUSTRIES
December 6, 2012 - AFL has introduced the new CS260 family as part of its Contractor series of OTDRs, featuring the CS260-10 and CS260-20 models. The two models are purpose-built for optical network activation and troubleshooting tasks, and include an integrated VFL (visible red laser) designed to visually pinpoint the location of macro-bends or breaks in splice closures, access terminals and splitter cabinets.AFL
November 26, 2012 - Fluke has introduced the 437 series II Power Quality and Energy Analyzer, boasting the most advanced power quality functions available in a handheld tool. The 437 model includes PowerWave, a system that displays waveforms and half cycle RMS voltage and current values to measure interactions during switching operations to help prevent motor/drive/load mismatches. The tool can monitor systems with up to 10 power quality parameters on one screen, record up to 150 parameters on four phases simultaneously, in accordance with the EN50160 standard, and are safety rated 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III.FLUKE
November 26, 2012 - Fluke has announced the new VT02 Visual Infrared thermometer, a troubleshooting camera with an infrared heat map. According to Fluke, the camera fills the gap between thermometers and thermal imagers, “when a single-spot temperature reading isn’t enough and a high-resolution thermal image is more than users need”. The VT02 combines the visual insight of a thermal imager, the visual images of a digital camera, and the point-and-shoot convenience of an IR (infrared) thermometer, adds Fluke. It displays and saves images as full visual, full infrared, or in three blended modes (25%, 50%, and 75%). FLUKE
November 19, 2012 - Greenlee Communications has announced the new Tele-Mate Pro 700 (TM-700) telephone test set with a built-in tone generator for pair tracing, Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) detection and measurement, as well as a new “dog-bone” design.
