Starfire Technology: Thanks for the video, just picked up a 85V for $99 USD on ebay by pure
luck, it's like new, but this helps since it had no manual.
Fox Nguyen: can you make another video on how to use the mulitmeter on the fluke 87V?
as I just picked one up. I wanted to know how to use a mulitmeter but more
over on a fluke 87V.
Adam Len: It can't be the inverse along with inverse, consecutively.
Bill fischer: seriously dude, nano seimens?????? you friggin rule !
Ami Khimji: Great video thanks.
Bill fischer: yellow button , I call it the "shift key".
I hope Fluke calls to thank you and if they do, ask them to install a 9v dc
PinkOld: Martin, your reviews are amazing.
It's really cool to get a critical evaluation from someone who is such a
mjlorton: Thanks for the feedback...I'm happy it was of value.
mjlorton: Interesting...if it came in original unopened packaging I would say it must
have been done twice in the factory. If you did not get it in original
unopened packaging I would question if it is brand new or not...
mjlorton: Not on this model...
Ryan Hatfield: You should really put links to the specific times of each feature you break
out, i don't wana watch the whole thing :P
Lucky Luke: Hi Martin, You forgot the option for light.
M0UKD: Great video. Just run through all the procedures on mine, cheers!
névtelen felhasználó: That was an interesting, cool video. Thanks for posting it.
mjlorton: Thanks...I do open them now...see the later reviews. Cheers, Martin.
mjlorton: My pleasure, thanks for the feedback.
Aaron Gross: My fluke 28ii is flashing lead when in dial is turned to any of the
voltages or ohms. Even when the leads aren't plugged in. Any suggestions
Егор Зинченко: Я ДУМАЛ ЭТО ТЕЛЕФОН
Ivan Kong: I just bought my 87-V and thank so much for your video.
TheMath4all: hi Martin, thanks for your reply. in between I called fluke and checked the
serial number of the meter; it came out, that it was produced October 2012,
so it must be rather new. but not even the technician at fluke could tell
me, why there are 2 calibrations on the meter, . however, I checked the
readings of the 28 ii with my bench top meter, and all readings are within
specs.. so I guess there is no need to worry :) greetings from Austria!
JerTheRipper: That "LEAD" with the beeping is actually the test mode for the fuses. If
you have the meter in a non-current mode and plug a lead into a current
jack it beeps and shows "LEAD" if the fuse associated with that terminal is
good. The way that you tested it is a Fluke recommended way to make sure
that the fuse is within its resistance spec for sensitive current
measurements, but for non-critical measurements, the test mode is quick and
mjlorton: Oh...ok, sorry but I no longer have that Fluke...it was on loan. I hope to
get my own and will post another video then.
managarm1349: the siemens feature is quite awesome. i bet it stays hidden to 2/3 of all
owners :) they shouldve indicated it somewhere around the button
pietrafesanet: Thank you very much indeed for this very useful video. Roberto.
mjlorton: My pleasure.
mjlorton: My pleasure Roberto, thanks for watching and the feedback.
mjlorton: That 87v has only been calibrated once when it was originally produced at
the Fluke factory.It could have been checked on the 06/09/2012 and still
been within factory tolerance and not needed calibration.A calibration
check would mean the tolerance / accuracy values are compared to the Fluke
quoted values. If they are outside of the Fluke quoted values then the
meter needs to have actual adjustments made to the readings through a
calibration process,that adds to the calibration (n001) counter.
Bart Simpson: Those comical EEs.
Scooby490: more power on feuters
mjlorton: Thanks for your input. Cheers, Martin.
Scooby490: can you do more please
Claude Rains: I figured that was the case. on my 87 and 87-3 its engraved on the back
case. Maybe it was a cost they cut out.
davidtubber: Great video. I'm buying this meter because of you
TheMath4all: hi Martin, i bought a new 28 II and i checked the number of calibrations -
surprisingly it showed 2 - is it possible that fluke calibrates new devices
twice, before they are being sold? It bought it from an official fluke
reseller here in Europe and they claimed this model to be not second hand.
Thanks for your help!
Mask Onironauta: I've had this fluke for 1 year and i didnt have anyone to teach me those
hide functions. really thank you for teaching those functions!
Scooby490: ok cheers from macedonia!
mjlorton: Great, I'm glad it helped with your choice. Cheers, Martin.
PD2DXN: First time to see your face!
mjlorton: Sorry...please explain a little more....what do you want me to do more of?
mjlorton: @Robbyinwesthouston Yes...very good point, I had not thought about that.
Thanks for watching and posting.
worldsails2000: Thank you for the very informative video. I'm hoping to getting a new 87-V
soon as long as Fluke approves my student discount.
mjlorton: My pleasure, I'm sure you'll be very happy with the 87-V, it's a great
meter. I hope they approve the discount for you. Cheers, Martin.
mjlorton: @managarm1349 Indeed...not sure why they don't....
BenTheRandomGuy: Can the smoothing feature be used when measuring ohms as well?
Peter Linau: great info, thanks for posting it !
Robby West Houston: too bad you can not combine (2) like power off and smoothing at startup
mjlorton: Yes...it does seem to be a cost they cut out and a silly one at that.
Claude Rains: I think you missed the part where all this is engraved on the back of the
meter, just take it out of protective case.
Jason Lunan: I recently bought a used fluke 87v from ebay i choose this over an agilent
u1272a for a similar price but brand new. The seller said it was calibrated
06/09/2012 with certificates great. When i got the meter and did the cal
test it shows n001. Would it be possible to explain the difference between
calibration and calibration check?
