About the Product
The Fluke 287 True-RMS Electronics Logging Multimeter with TrendCapture quickly documents design performance and graphically displays what happened. Its unique logging and graphing capabilities mean you no longer need to download logged readings to a PC to detect a trend. The Fluke 287 packs more accuracy and convenience into a handheld multimeter than ever before.
The Fluke 289 is the next generation high performance industrial logging multimeter. This Fluke Connect-compatible DMM is designed to solve complex problems in electronics, plant automation, power distribution, and electro-mechanical equipment. Let the 289 be your watchdog for systems or processes while you are off doing other jobs. It provides the ability to log data and graphically review up 10,000 recorded events and logged readings with on-board TrendCapture. Zoom on trend provides a 14x zoom to view and analyze data—without needing a PC.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Fluke 287 True-RMS
  • The world's best digital multimeter and a real use of electronics
  • I bought the Fluke 287 for two reasons: Robust functions and data logging. I am a Arduino hobbyist. I use the meter to read voltages for PWM, detect relay switching, measure current in micro-amp range and troubleshooting a project.
  • The best multimeter on the market, did a logging file, it eliminated the guessing. The best too for the job!
  • Great meter and espically useful is the frequency measurement when working with wind and soil moisture probes.
  • This is a higher priced multimeter that only the most diligent pro or avid electronic hobbyist would consider. I'm admittedly a tool junkie, and a meticulous consumer of the best in class.
Fluke 289 True-RMS
  • It's robust, takes abuse like 10' falls onto concrete, and is very reliable/precise when spot-checked against test equipment costing 1-2 orders of magnitude more).
  • Very handy & powerful DMM, I work in the process industry and the 289 is the preferred tool I use for 4-20Ma current loops.
  • Great DMM! I feel as though you get a ton of features for the money with the Fluke 289. Just one of the tasks I perform with my 289 is monitoring large battery charging systems.
  • I love the 289 and its ability to log info, download it using the software is a great asset and timesaver. It saves me time and makes my job easier.
  • Once I got my hands on the Fluke 289, it was the first time I felt like I might have a good replacement / upgrade to the 87. Very happy with it. Several of the other engineers have gone to the 289 now.

What customers say about "Measurements"
Fluke 287 True-RMS
  • Very accurate meter for basic functions like voltage & resistance, but also very useful for logging and other more complex functions. Works great for general industrial troubleshooting.
  • This meter has a ton of parameters to measure, and it's rather easy to use.
  • I figured they had drifted out of spec by now but I measured them with the fluke 287 at low voltage and one was right on with the 287 and the other was off by .00001.
  • It usually measures with quick, accurate response ... very little delay.
  • This meter is not reliable measuring small capacitances at all. We have 30-90pF caps here (don't ask) and this product measures capacitance in the range of 10nF-0.3uF depending on the orientation of the leads!
Fluke 289 True-RMS
  • Accuracy of Fluke published meter resolutions are not exaggerated like many other brands.
  • Very good measurement. The only problem is that the buttons are not sensitive sometime I have to press three times to make it work.
  • This one has all the bells and whistles, and it's a little bulky to carry around. But it will make some measurements that other meters will not make.
  • It features a low impedance measurement mode, a low pass filter, a relative measurement mode, min/max/avg, a diode check, and of course a data logging mode with graphic display.
  • Let's talk about some other measurements, features, and accuracy... First up lest talk about current measurement. This meter can measure a wide range of current the lowest range being 0-500uA with resolution of 0.01uA and an accuracy of +/- 0.6% + 20cts @ 45Hz-1kHz.

What customers say about "Features"
Fluke 287 True-RMS
  • This meter has been perfect for troubleshooting sensor glitches on the production line. This meter is designed perfectly for trouble shooting and can help reduce wastefully changing good parts on the lines.
  • The large screen and easy to manipulate controls as well as the intuitive menu allows me to perform my job efficiently.
  • The screen is large and this gives you every option you can think of for your data. The capture data function is great for logging the movement of voltage.
  • All the other features were just icing on the cake! The TrendCapture was something I didn't have before but now couldn't live without. And the battery level indicator is a nice touch.
  • The recording/trending function is really the key feature of this meter and will no doubt save you hours of headache and hassle while diagnosing intermittent problems.
Fluke 289 True-RMS
  • Love the 2 levels of brightness on the display for when I'm working in dark places & the magnet for attaching it to beams or structures so that I can view it while working. Impressed with the battery life as well.
  • The 289 works perfectly for our application, allowing techs to record data that I can then download and review. As always, the unit feels sturdy and we expect a long life out of it. Great product!
  • The unit and the software make root-cause analysis and reporting much more precise and simpler than manually entering values on an spreadsheet.
  • The screen is awesome -- very easy to read in all lighting conditions. I love the ability to log -- it is very handy when trying to see trends over time with a solar array (see aforementioned drop from roof).
  • The recording option is a great tool for monitoring while I am not able to be present.
