Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the U2741A USB modular digital multimeter (DMM). Roughly the size of a paperback book, the 5.5-digit U2741A DMM is the latest member of Agilent's USB modular instrument family. These compact instruments make it possible to carry two or three pieces of test equipment in a briefcase alongside a laptop PC.
The U2741A offers 100 Sa/s measurements and maximum input levels of 300 Vdc and 2 A. It provides a broad range of features and 10 measurement functions: DC voltage and DC current, true-RMS AC voltage and AC current, two- and four-wire resistance, frequency, diode test, continuity, and temperature. The bundled Agilent Measurement Manager software provides a familiar user interface on a laptop or desktop PC.
As with the other USB modular instruments, the DMM uses standard, high-speed USB 2.0 for plug-and-play connectivity. The included IVI drivers allow users to program with Agilent VEE, MATLAB, C#, C++, Microsoft Visual Basic or LabVIEW.
Pricing: The U2741A USB modular DMM is priced at $1,040.
Availability: Available now in the Americas, Asia Pacific and Japan. It will be available in Europe on October 17, 2008.
