Agilent DMMs for use in category four industrial environments

The U1270 series handheld digital multimeters (DMMs) from Agilent Technologies are water- and dust-resistant designed for industrial troubleshooters who work in dusty, grimy, damp and dark environments.

The 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. A Smart Ohm function helps ensure confidence in results by minimizing false readings due to leakage current.

To enhance usability, the DMMs have a slim profile and controls that are easy to operate, even when wearing heavy gloves. They feature a flashing backlight as visual alert to enhance continuity checks in dark, noisy environments.

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.

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 is $340 and the U1272A handheld DMM is $370 and both products are available now in all regions except Japan, where they will be available starting in December.
