Agilent introduces family of handheld digital multimeters
Sep 07, 2007
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the expansion of its handheld digital multimeter (DMM) portfolio with the introduction of the Agilent U1240A Series. Leveraging technical innovations from the multi-award-winning U1250A Series, this new series provides functions that are optimal for installation and maintenance applications.
The new Agilent DMM allows field or facilities technicians and engineers to do more than just voltage, current and resistance measurements. For instance, providing more than typical voltage measurements on switches, the Agilent U1240A Series enables users to observe open/close switch behaviors in the presence of intermittent signals.
Users can also easily gauge the extent of transformer heating or the efficiency of refrigeration systems with the DMM's dual and differential temperature capabilities. This, coupled with its microamp measurement function, is especially handy for troubleshooting HVAC equipment and sensors.
"With the addition of the Agilent U1240A Series, we now offer a wider selection to fit customers' applications and budgets across electronics troubleshooting, installation and maintenance," said Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Basic Instruments Division. "This series also reaffirms our commitment to equip customers with not only the essential features of a handheld DMM, but also extra capabilities that help them do more quick checks in a wider range of situations."
The Agilent U1240A Series is available now. Pricing starts at $200.
