Agilent-U1271AAgilent Technologies introduces new Handheld Digital Multimeters

08 November 2010 - Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the U1270 Series handheld digital multimeters (DMMs), setting new levels of performance in industrial handheld DMMs. This series offers a wide range of measurement capabilities; including feature sets that are found only in higher end industrial handheld DMMs.

The U1270 Series allows engineers and technicians to make faster, more accurate measurements. The new DMMs include capabilities such as low impedance mode to eliminate stray voltages, and low-pass filtering to remove noise that distorts voltage and current readings. The new Smart Ohm function helps ensure confidence in results by minimizing false readings due to leakage current.

To enhance usability, the DMMs have a slim, easy-to-grip profile and controls that are easy to operate, even when wearing heavy gloves. The U1270 Series are the world’s first DMMs to feature a flashing backlight as visual alert to enhance continuity checks in dark, noisy environments.

“These water- and dust-resistant handheld DMMs were designed for industrial troubleshooters who work in dusty, grimy, damp and dark environments,” explained Gooi Bor Chun, Agilent worldwide marketing director, Basic Instrument Division.

Additional capabilities include PC connectivity for data-logging applications and easy access to the fuse through the rear-panel battery door.

The IP54-certified U1270 Series expands Agilent’s range of handheld DMMs that are CAT III 1000V and CAT IV 600V compliant. The U1250 Series delivers features and accuracy to optimize electronics troubleshooting. The U1240 Series lets engineers and technicians perform measurements efficiently through wide measurement ranges and capabilities such as a built-in switch counter.

U1270 Series’ IP54 Rating

The U1270 Series handheld DMMs have an Ingress Protection rating of IP54, with the “5” indicating protection against dust (limited ingress and no harmful deposits) and the “4” indicating protection from water sprayed from all directions (limited ingress permitted).

The U1271A handheld DMM and the U1272A handheld DMM are both available now in all regions except Japan, where they will be available starting in December.
