Hi

If you can spend some $$ buy a fluke meter, I have fluke 75 who is still working (almost 30 years now) ,
Today you can get good price for 2nd hand equipment from Ebay.
Look for those who except offers where you can get up to 50~75% of sell price.
but be careful and stay away from prices below 50% market price, always use ebay payment method and never transfer payment to privet accounts.  


All the best

Hello,

the 30 years can be easily excelled by my oldest Fluke 8020A which was made in 1978.
Ive got it after finishing the school.
Its still in very good shape and of course in specs.
I had only to replace the LCD, which is a common problem of the 8020A.

For benchwork i prefer the Fluke 8600A.
As zac wrote: "the 20000 count of the 1980s vintage 8060A is adequate for nearly everything."

For more resolution i build a meter with only one range (0 - 16.777215 V)
with a Silicon Labs C8051F350.
This is sometimes useful to measure voltage drops across pcb-traces.
Of course there is some noise in the reading, even after some filtering.


Best Regards

I have both the U1272A and the U1282A from agilent/keysight. They are practically indestructible and will last you a lifetime. I find the U1282A a bit too bulky.

Fluke 115 or 117 True RMS Multimeter will be a good one. I have both of them. Gives true RMS AC voltage and current readings.

I have a Fluke 87-IV and a Fluke 89-IV, both have been working perfectly fine for the last 25 years.

I use the Fluke 87V in our office. Precise and reliable. Fast from standard multimeters. It's taken my many mistakes. About 380 USD.
I am using Unit UT 61E at home. Very cheap but not very reliable. It endured a few minor mistakes. About 70 USD.

Because this is a sort of "running" thread here my 5 cent... I've a Fluke 73 I bought more than 20 yrs ago and it works  perfectly.

Than an yrs ago I have bought a most modern Fluke 175 with true RMS on Amazon (about 200 if remember well).

Because I'm setting up a lab in my office, I've ordered "some" Fluke too... (I'm not sponsored by Fluke...  Smiley).

They must be the best, I used to design them Smiley. If you are a more realistic budget then I think UNI-T are good value for money despite the ill reasoned reports to the contrary.

Hi

If you live in the US there are plenty of auction sealing test equipment among this you can find lot of Fluke multi meters and other type of equipment at less then 50% market price.

It is difficult to participate in this auction's if you are not US resident as the packing and delivery cost might cost more then what you Buy so be careful with this.

for more info look at https://www.go-dove.com/en/index.

All the best

We in the are having a meltdown with Brexit. Miss May our PM said we will Trade Outside the EU.

We have a special relation ship with the USA. well the thing is we have a poor exchange rate for the US Dollar
1 = $1 then a fee 4 or more, then postage small item to UK = $20 to $60. same item China Post = free.

Then there is inport taxes - Vat 20% plus a fee 15 so if the item is not exempt from vat and the seller over values the Item.
you pay the value.


Down side is there is noway I wish to trade with the USA. 

post might no make sense as I just finished a late project (burning the midnight oil)
