Agilent adds wireless connectivity to U1210 Series clamp meter

Dec 13, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Agilent Technologies Inc., a provider of technology solutions, has announced the addition of wireless connectivity to its U1210 Series clamp meter. It also added new capabilities, including voice output and remote hosting, to the Mobile Meter and Mobile Logger applications that support the company's wireless connectivity solution for handheld digital multimeters and clamp meters.

To enable wireless connectivity, the Agilent U1210A Series clamp meter is now compatible with the optional Agilent U1177A IR-to-Bluetooth adapter. With a range of up to 10 meters, this capability enables measurements of large currents at a safe distance. It also eliminates the need to travel back and forth to electrical distribution rooms to check measurement results.

To enhance safety during the probing of high-voltage circuits, the Mobile Meter and Mobile Logging apps both include a voice out capability. This feature provides an audible output of DMM readings through the text-to-speech engine in the Android device, and the voice can be directed to the device's speaker or a Bluetooth headset.

The Mobile Meter application supports data monitoring over longer distances with a remote-hosting mode. This allows the user to monitor measurements through a Web browser running on a PC or tablet within the same network. It also lets them share measurement data with coworkers in other locations.

Agilent's wireless remote connectivity solution now supports a total of 15 handheld models in the U1200 Series of handheld DMMs and clamp meters. The applications run on most Android-based smartphones or tablets as well as Microsoft Windows(r)-based PCs.

"When working around high-voltage machinery or electrical panels, customers seek a solution that allows them to have full concentration on the measurement task," said Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Basic Instruments Division.
