Fluke 289 last firmware?
« on: December 07, 2011, 02:52:05 pm »
Hello,

Could someone please tell me which is the latest firmware for Fluke 289? I pickup from Fluke's website firmware 1.1 being listed, my Fluke says 1.12, something does not really match?

One more thing, how do you distinguish between the EUR and non EUR model? Read somewhere in here that EUR is the face-lift model of 289 after February 2011, but how do you tell which one do you got?

Thank you.

Its best to contact Fluke, firmware updates some times can become a tricky story.

My 289 also shows firmware 1.12

That EUR in the model name is maybe an identification that the supplied probes meet the requirements for the new EN 61010-031.
EUR because it fits EURopean standards?

The most important changes are:

- conductive parts on probe tips for CAT3/CAT4 not bigger than 4mm (for lower CAT  not bigger than 19mm)
- conductive parts of closed croc-clips must be insulated

(it's ridiculous, i know. Almost as ridiculous as the lettering "DANGER! HOT!" on coffee cups.)

Fluke can be sometimes late when publishing new FW so its best to ask your dealer of Fluke directly
Oh, the joy of sending various electronics to silicon heaven

the orig 289 model is on the discontinued list on the fluke site, so it can be a newer version, dunno if they changed the head text on the top of the screen to 289 eur or not i cannot find a picture of it, or it can be made in china cos its cheaper too :)

It seems version 1.12 is the latest, at least for Europe:

Hi Cormell,

Version 1.12 is the latest firmware version in products we are shipping. From a performance perspective version 1.1 is the only version offered for upgrade. Version 1.12 was implemented to account for an internal engineering change which does not affect the instruments accuracy or performance. We will only offer downloadable upgrades when changes impact the instruments accuracy, performance or calibration process.

Kind Regards,

Do you have a problem with your unit ?

No, not at all, but doing software for a living I have this bad habit of asking for updates :)

As a side note, my Standard ST 9929 bought as surplus for 20 quid keep up with Fluke 289 up to the 3rd digit in VDC, Ohm, Cap.

Be careful with the range switch, it looks to not be that strong.  ;)

I got a 2007 bootloader on my Fluke (bought in 2007) and last firmware upgrade was in 2008 by me. The now current firmware version is 1.10. I checked a while ago and I could not find any downloadable later versions.

Shhh Kyriako, that is a feature. Detachable selection wheels. They also come in yellow, black and orange!
