Fluke has offered enhancements to its bench digital multimeters - Fluke 8808A 5.5 digit Digital Multimeter and the 8845A/8846A 6.5 digit Multimeters will include a USB to RS232 Cable Adapter and FlukeView Forms Basic software.

In addition, Fluke has increased the warranty period on these meters to three years. The USB to RS232 Cable Adapter converts the RS-232 serial port on the 8808A, 8846A or 8845A to a USB, allowing users to connect their multimeter to a PC USB port.

FlukeView Forms software increases the power of Fluke bench multimeters by enabling users to document, store and analyze individual readings or series of measurements, then convert them into professional-looking documents.

FlukeView Forms Basic can be used alone to download measurement data and create reports that can be saved and printed. An optional version of the software, FlukeView Forms plus Designer, allows a user to edit an existing form or create a new form to customize the report to individual needs. A common edit might add a company logo and title.
