  • Multimeter Hi Res digit rounding....or not.

    A list of my multimeters can be purchased here:
    http://astore.amazon.com/m0711-20?_encoding=UTF8&node=5

    In this video I demonstrate how some multimeters with a Hi Res (high resolution) mode round the last digit when switching back to a low resolution mode. In essence they just "hide" the last digit which is not the correct way they should handle this.

    Equipment used:

    * Brymen TBM867 / BM867
    * ISO-Tech IDM207
    * Fluke 87-V

  • BK Precision 2530B Digital Storage Oscilloscope

    BK Precision 2530B Digital Storage Oscilloscope

    The 2530B Digital Storage Oscilloscope delivers essential features and reliable performance at a price you can afford. Analog style knobs and controls combined with a smart Auto set function make this oscilloscope easy to use. Advanced triggering, automatic measurements, and FFT functions provide you with many options to debug your circuits. Educators can appreciate the ability to disable the Auto button that would automatically setup the scope to display a signal, requiring the user to learn how to set up scope parameters manually. Additionally, the instrument comes with PC software that lets you easily capture, analyze, and document waveforms and measurement results. The 2530B is an ideal education and training tool, and also well-suited for applications in service and repair.

  • BK Precision 879B 40,000 Count Dual Display Handheld LCR Meter

    Shop Now: http://www.testequipmentdepot.com/bk-precision/lcr/879b.htm?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=demo+video&utm_campaign=manufacturer

    The BK Precision 879B 40,000-count handheld LCR meter measures inductance, capacitance, and resistance quickly and precisely. Additionally, the 879B supports remote control using SCPI commands and can calculate impedance, Θ, and ESR, features typically found only in bench LCR meters.

    Fast auto ranging and quick measurement configuration such as measurement parameter and test frequency selection make the 879B very simple to operate. The meter also includes handy functions such as data hold, Min/Max/Average recording, tolerance sorting, and relative mode.

    Measurement data can continuously transfer to a PC via the meter's mini USB interface, using either the provided data logging software or SCPI commands sent from a custom program.

  • BK Precision 1673 Triple Output DC Power Supply

    BK 1673 Triple Output DC Power Supply (2) 0-32V, 0-6A/(1)5V, 3A

    The model 1673 is a Quad Display Triple Output DC Regulated Power Supply that provides one fixed output (5V/ 3A) and two variable outputs (0 -- 32V/ 0 -- 6A) ratings. The four displays allow the user to continuously monitor the voltage and current values of the two main outputs. The variable outputs can work independently, or in series tracking, or parallel mode. Conveniently adjust voltage and current with independent front panel knobs and bright quad LED display.

    The BK Precision 1673 is designed to operate in a constant voltage or a constant current mode with automatic crossover, allowing continuous transition from constant current to constant voltage modes in response to load condition changes.

    The 1673 power supply is ideally suited for applications in electronic test, production, and service, where multiple independent DC power supply is required.
