  • Multimeter review / buyers guide: Fluke 87V / Fluke 87-5 Review

    Buy the Fluke 87V here: http://astore.amazon.com/m0711-20/detail/B0002YFD1K

    This is a review of the Fluke 87V. This is Fluke's true RMS digital multimeter with 6000 / 20000 count. This is an industrial multimeter for electrical / electronics.
    I will be using this multimeter in a future series on "How to use a multimeter for advanced measurements" (multimeter tutorial)

    Specs:

    * Unique function for accurate voltage and frequency measurements on adjustable speed motor drives and other electrically noisy equipment (87V)
    * Built-in thermometer conveniently allows you to take temperature readings without having to carry a separate instrument (87V)
    * Optional magnetic hanger for easy set-up and viewing while freeing your hands for other tasks
    * Large digit display with bright, two-level backlight makes the 80- Series V significantly easier to read than older models

  • Voltage Standard Ref Tests - Digital Multimeter reference / accuracy check

    I demonstrate the DMMCheck and PentaRef from VoltageStandard (www.voltagestandard.com).
    These are Low cost Voltage References and multimeter checks for voltage, current and resistance.
    I then run through some tests to compare the accuracy of the following multimeters:

    Fluke 287
    Brymen TBM867 / BM867
    Major Tech MT1887 / Extech EX530
    Major Tech MT22
    ISO-Tech IDM207

    I also introduce the Fluke 87 V which I will review soon.
