  • U1253B strange behavior

    I got a U1253B (the Ole dmultimeter ) a few weeks ago. It has some strange behavior. When switching from ohms to mV the meter will read something like 1200 mV and this value will slowly creep upwards until it displays...

  • how much cost of Agilent Digital Multimeter ?

    That depends which model you are looking for.  Do you want a handheld, or a Benchtop instrument?  How many digits are you looking for 4.5, 5.5, 6.5, 7.5, or 8.5? Is there any specific function you need or j...

  • U1273A Temperature Lock Issue

    My new DMM only reads in C, not F for temperature measurements. In the setup menu, there is a lock symbol that prevents this from being edited. In the manual, there is a brief message buried that says the temp mode is...

  • U1252B DC Measuement Problem

    Our new U1252B DMM has an odd "feature".  When you select the DC voltage measurement mode, the meter seems to have a voltage threshold.  If the voltage is less than about 9 or 10 volts, it displays 0.0000.&#...

  • 34401A DCV burden

    I was using a 34401A s/n SG41019123 to perform an adjustment and encountered an interesting problem.  I was adjusting a DC voltage at a testpoint for .9800V +/-.0005V.  The 34401A read .97910V. Since reading...

  • U1242B - another IC killer!

    I just measured the open circuit voltage of the U1242B when in ohm or continuity mode. Ohms puts 0.4-0.59V on the tips . This will not endanger circuits but will put some into conduction. I saw briefly 1.8V displayed ...
