TRIO  Test & Measurement offers U1242B Cat IV True RMS multimeters introduced by Agilent to their U1240B Series of handheld digital multimeters.  

Agilent U1242B 4-digit handheld digital multimeters (DMM) find application in the installation and maintenance of machinery, facility and electrical systems for quick checks and fixes.

In comparison with conventional meters, the U1242B offers a wider range of measurement functions allowing more checks with a single meter.  

True RMS readings on a 10,000-count display and adjustable back lighting enable measurements even in low light conditions.  

The U1242B digital multimeters also facilitate dual and differential temperature measurements for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.

Monitoring differential temperature in real-time is especially useful in making sure that HVAC components in the system are cooling or heating appropriately.

Harmonic Distortion Ratio measurement is used to check the power quality in industrial and commercial environments.  

Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) ratio gives a more accurate picture of waveform distortion. Excessive harmonics in AC supplies and systems can lead to overheating in switchboards, motors, generators and transformers.  

Built-in switch counter checks for intermittent or bouncing relay and switch contacts while the digital multimeters also have the ability to manually log and save up to 100 readings or up to 200 readings at set intervals.  

Key features of Agilent U1242B DMMs: 

  • 0.09% basic DCV accuracy
  • True RMS AC
  • Basic functions: DCV, DCI, ACV, ACI, resistance, frequency, diode test and continuity with beeper
  • J & K-type temperature measurements
  • Advanced functions include capacitance, switch counter, harmonic ratio and dual/differential temperature
