Keysight Technologies announced the U1280 and U1240C Series of handheld digital multimeters (DMM) certified to IP 67 for protection against dust and immersion of water up to one meter, and capable of withstanding up to a three-meter (ten feet) drop.
In addition to offering the capabilities and measurement functions needed for the electronics and industrial test segments,handheld DMMs are extremely rugged and come with extended battery life to allow users to test and log data over a longer period of time.
The U1280 Series is a 4.5-digit handheld DMM with 60,000-count display resolution and 0.025 percent accuracy.
The U1240C Series 4-digit handheld DMMs come with 10,000-count display resolution and 0.09 percent accuracy. The U1240C Series also comes with features such as ZLOW and harmonic ratio. ZLOW provides low impedance mode to eliminate stray voltages. The harmonic ratio function gives an indication of the presence of harmonics.
“With extended battery life and IP 67 certification, the U1280 Series and U1240C Series are designed to be reliable, durable and robust,” said Ee Huei Sin, vice president, Keysight’s General-Purpose Electronic Measurement Division.
The U1280 Series and U1240C Series are certified to IP 67 for protection against dust and immersion of water up to one meter, and are capable of withstanding up to a three-meter (ten feet) drop.
Additionally, the U1240C Series is CAT IV 600 V and CAT III 1000 V compliant to improve user safety in electrical testing and measurement. Both series of handheld DMMs come with extended battery life : 800 hours for the U1280 Series and 400 hours for the U1240C Series.
For advanced functions and data logging capabilities, engineers can use the Handheld Meter Logger software. This PC software allows users to automatically log data in a trend plot or table format, or to manually log each measurement with a touch of a button.
Subsequently, users can convert the logged data into various test report formats. For remote monitoring, the U1280 Series and U1240C Series are compatible with the Keysight remote link solution, enabling safer and more convenient testing in hazardous environments.
