Four brief online videos on Everett, Wash.-based Fluke's website explain the advanced features of the company's newest portable digital multimeters. Advanced DMMs incorporate sophisticated test and measurement capabilities.

The videos are intended to help users understand and use the powerful capabilities. The four video clips cover:  
  • TrendCapture, a feature that enables the user to record events and display the results on the large display screen built into the Fluke 287 and 289 units.
  • Datalogging, which allows users to record measurements (up to 15,000 events over time) in the meter before downloading the results to a PC.
  • Min/max/average measurements, which lets users capture values and see fluctuations in signal levels, then retrieve the results later.
  • Other user-friendly features of the Fluke 287 and Fluke 289 are explained such as the large bright backlit display screen and on-screen help.
