The Fluke 233 is the industry's first digital multimeter
with a detachable wireless display. With display attached, the Fluke 233
operates as a conventional multimeter. In challenging or unusual test
situations, the wireless display gives users ultimate
flexibility, improving safety and increasing productivity for
electricians and electronic technicians. By simply
sliding the wireless display out of the meter body, the user can place the
display where it is most easily seen-up to 10m (33 ft) from the point of
measurement-while putting the meter in the best position to connect to the
circuit under test. The detachable display enables users to: find a comfortable position to view test data when the test
location is hard to reach or in hazardous, dirty or noisy environments; view
readings when the test point is across the room, in another room or hidden
behind an equipment enclosure; run tests and read results at a safe distance
from shock and arc flash hazards, moving machinery and other dangers; devote
full attention to the tasks of positioning the meter and reading test results,
for greater safety; and allows the user to be in two places at once. The
Fluke 233 is the only digital multimeter with a detachable display. The
low-power, 2.4 GHz ISM Band wireless signal that transmits measurement data
resists electromagnetic interference. The transmitter automatically turns on when
the display is removed and off when the display is reattached. The removable
display is magnetic and has a flat bottom, so it can be conveniently mounted or
placed on a flat surface where it can easily be seen. In addition to its unique
wireless capability, the Fluke 233 is rated CAT
IV 600 V for demanding industrial environments.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
