Fluke Australia , a subsidiary of Fluke Corporation, have produced a fun animated video that makes an important point. Using the Fluke 289 industrial trending digital multimeter (DMM), busy facility maintenance professionals can collect revealing system performance data without getting pinned down.
The video is set in a secret industrial complex and the mission is to capture 10,000 readings using the Fluke 289 DMM. Complete with ominous music and furtive figures darting around heavy equipment and dodging an armed security team, the video shows how the Fluke 289 DMM can be attached to a circuit and collect information, even while the operator is busy.
The Fluke 289 DMM can record events that take place in a test circuit over time, without the user being present. Nowadays, with decreased staffing and greater work load, having the Fluke 289 DMM is like having another electrician on staff. The user can later review the saved data on the meter’s large display to spot anomalies and identify trends.
The collected data can also be downloaded to a PC, where powerful FlukeView forms software makes it easy to create custom graphs and reports. A Fluke application note explaining event recording and analysis with the Fluke 289 DMM is available with other Fluke case studies and notes on the Fluke application notes web page for DMMs.
