The new skins allow engineers and technicians to personalise their DMMs, which are used to perform everyday measurements and troubleshooting tasks.
"With portable electronics such as iPhones, Sony PSP, Blackberry PDAs and laptops getting the personal touch, why should your multimeter be any different?" asked Ee Huei Sin, Vice President and General Manager of Agilent's Basic Instruments Division.
"The thematic skins of our handheld DMMs allow engineers and technicians to express themselves through their trusty DMM. It gives them a greater sense of pride when they say, 'This is my DMM’."
