True RMS and 20,000 Count for Service/Repair and Educational Use

YORBA LINDA, CA, March 3, 2010 -- B&K Precision launches their newest bench-top multimeter with a value greater than its low list price of $339 would imply. Model 2831E multimeter is unsurpassed for applications in education, service & repair, manufacturing or any application where affordable, accurate, and reliable measurements are needed.

The 2831E offers a remarkable accuracy of 0.03%, a digital dual display for viewing two measurements simultaneously, a fast measurement rate of up to 25 readings per second, threshold settings for quick Pass/Fail testing, plus the ability to download measurement values to a computer via USB interface using SCPI protocol.

This bench-top DMM provides True RMS precision with a 20,000 count display. Its AC+DC capability captures any DC effects within the measured voltage or current for the most accurate results. Housed in a rugged case for easy stacking, the front panel of the 2831E has a bright display and tactile pushbutton control with easy-to-follow second function commands.

This hardworking instrument provides all expected measurements of AC and DC voltage to 750V and 1000V, respectively, AC and DC current to 20 A, resistance, frequency, and continuity test. Add to this the bonus built-in math functions of REL (relative) for offset measuring, Max/Min for capturing highest and lowest values, dB, dBm, Data Hold, and Compare. Wide measurement ranges, accuracy, and affordability make this the multimeter of choice on the test bench.
