Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the U1253A handheld digital multimeter (DMM), the first to use an OLED display, claims the company. For on-the-go and benchtop applications, the OLED readout provides a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, a 160 viewing angle, smoothed fonts and a "large display" mode to ensure crystal-clear indoor viewing.

The U1253A expands Agilent's U1250 series of handheld DMMs. Designed to simplify electronic troubleshooting and validation, these high-performance instruments enable engineers and technicians to complete their day-to-day tasks without being confined to the bench.

All three U1250 series DMMs provide useful benefits that help simplify analysis, accelerate glitch detection and simplify probing of hard-to-reach points:

? Precision: Key specifications are 4.5-digit resolution with 50,000-count full-scale dual display and basic accuracy of up to 0.025 percent. All offer simultaneous measurements and provide the flexibility to quickly perform validation tests, tolerance checks and marginal-failure troubleshooting.

? Versatility: Beyond basic DMM functions, the models include capabilities such as temperature measurements, automated data-logging (with the optional PC-interface cable) and, in the U1252A, a 20MHz frequency counter and a programmable square-wave generator.

? Accessories: The U1251A and U1252A include, at no extra cost, a wide range of essential accessories: alligator clips; fine-tip test probes; SMT and mini grabbers; and a soft carrying case. The U1253A includes a set of standard test leads and alligator clips.

Agilent's line of handheld DMMs also includes the U1240 series, which allow users to check more with wide measurement ranges, true RMS readings and a 10,000-count display. The U1240 DMMs also simplify maintenance tasks with harmonic-ratio, dual-temperature and differential-temperature capabilities as well as a built-in switch counter.
