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.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
