[SOLD] Keysight U1282A used 10min - MINT - $400
« on: May 30, 2024, 01:59:35 am »
Another classic impulse buy.
Saw it on ebay.com for cheap and got it home, but I always grab my BM869s if I need a portable DMM.
Time to let it go, come with IR USB port and brand new Keysight DMM probes.
Tested working, can't find any defect on it. It even still has the plastic foil on the display.




    IP67 certified water and dust resistance withstands harsh environments and drops up to 10 feet
    60,000 counts resolution and 0.025% basic DCV accuracy
    Continuity tests with visual and audio alerts
    Built-in Low Pass Filter for accurate VFD troubleshooting
    Vsense alerts in the presence of high AC voltage
    Stay productive with 800 hours of battery life
    Built-in square-wave generator
    CAT III 1000 V and CAT IV 600 V Overvoltage Protection


More Details here:

That is an extremely impressive multimeter, great accuracy and 60k count, and fast (for a handheld!) data logging over USB, and very long battery life. There's also a Bluetooth module that is worth buying for it; the mobile software is quite nice, it allows user-defined formulas (so you could plug in a thermistor formula for instance, to measure and chart temperature, or attach any other sensor and view measurements in real-time in the correct units). I found that module also handy for automotive use, for example crank the engine, and see the voltage dip/rise etc on the battery on a chart, on a mobile phone while sitting inside the car.

Minor negative: there are a ton of features, so many that it takes delving into the user manual to recall how to access them.

I'd want to buy that if I didn't already have one. To be honest, I'd rather sell all my other handheld meters and keep the U1282A.

Perfectly understandable for you.
It depends on the user needs AND personal taste... anyway I agree, Keysight has packed tons of features in this little box.

The U1282A is an excellent meter and its accessories are very reasonably priced. One can't go wrong buying it.

Good luck with your sale, Zucca!

Thanks rsjsouza, glad to hear this is indeed a very good device.

Anyway major Ebay or Fluke Trademark fuck up regarding my previous ebay listing:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/296482987850

They took it down because Fluke trademark violation.  :horse:



I created a new ebay listing here:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/296487729620

and pointed out their tragicomic mistake in one pic:


Let's see what happens now.

Yeah way to go Fluke !!!

They are morons.
Apart from not being same color, it is not like you are company selling line of products with a "questionable design".
If they don't like colour, why they don't sue Keysight...
What is next? Ferrari suing other manufacturers for selling red cars.

How was it even possible to register as a trademark such a basic property like color?
What is next? I can register round shape or fact something is handheld? Let's trademark a circle?

The hell 

Tons of other Flukes and Keysight meters are still sold on FLeabay,    why  nagging ?

And its not the 1st time he sell things on Ebay ??  his reputation is good ?


A few years back,  "they" took down  if i recall a Sparkfun skid of 2000x  ''yellow'' meters, it ignited a controversy,  and as a result they offered  real Flukes  to compensate ...

https://www.sparkfun.com/news/1428


and lastly  it must be  B.O.T.S   who reported, not even humans      loll

U1282A is a nice meter, I had one for a while. It's huge for a handheld, which is fine if you like big digit display and you have big hands! I switched to the U1272A, which IMHO is one of the best handhelds for an electronics engineer.

Lawyers of course. If we report a listing for keyword or brand-name spamming (or other reasons), the AI decision decides no policy has been violated & does nothing, hence I don't bother reporting anymore, ePay search is trying to replicate the mess known as sc-Amazon.  :palm:

Can they also take down yellow items that predate the trademark crap from Phluke?

From Fluke Trademarks Department (put XY instead of real name)

Quote
Hello,
 
Thank you for reaching out. Fluke Corporation (“Fluke”) is an industry leader of electronic testing, measurement, and diagnostic equipment. Its digital multimeters (DMMs) and related tools are widely used, renowned and easily recognized by their yellow border surrounding a dark gray or black face. Fluke owns numerous trademark registrations for that distinctive trade dress, including US Reg. Nos. 2796480, 4654867, 4654868, 4741666, and 4741667 in class 9. Fluke has a strong reputation and has accumulated substantial goodwill in its equipment in many countries, including in the US.
 
We recently learned of your listing on eBay for a Keysight U1282A DMM. Our review determined that the listed product incorporated a yellow border with a dark face and because Fluke had not authorized that use, it constituted infringement of Fluke’s registered trade dress rights. Accordingly, we submitted a takedown against the listing.
 
We have since determined that the listed product has an orange border instead of a yellow border. Based on that we have now retracted our previous takedown submission. We apologize for any inconvenience.   
 
Thanks,
XY

I think other manufacturers should sue for dissolvement of trademark based on such basic physical property as color.

What is next? I think UNI-T or Brymen should register red rubber holster and sue Fluke for their Ex line of meters...
Then another manufacturer get smart and register use of all other color variations and sue everybody else.

How on earth was even possible for Fluke to register something like color.

It is like registering use of green bottles.

Even if the U1282A would had a yellow border,  GO TO KEYSIGHT AND DO NOT BOTHER ME!
I did not smuggled a bucket of top secret/trademark super protected Fluke yellow color from the Fluke factory and painted all my USED handheld DMM before putting them on Ebay.

 :horse:

This story is disturbing at so many levels.

Are they going to take down auctions for DMMs form other brands, that predate this trademark BS? :bullshit:
Who even made the first DMM with a yellow holster? I'm sure I have an analog ohmmeter with a yellow painted case from the 1950s, will these be unavailable on ePay if the Puke lawyers get their stupid way?

The HP 97xA series DMM are another that has a yellow holster, some Metrix DMM were yellow too, seems odd they were able to trademark a commonly used color for DMMs.

Did Fluke buy it, just so they could check the colour for real?

The colour of your meter does look like it is yellow. But yes, just saying yellow should be insufficient, We have pantone, RAL and many other colour systems for a reason.

I had a listing on amazon for the BM786 removed because it had mentioned the Fluke equivalent. I don't list on Amazon anymore at all anyway.

Don't forget we live in a democracy, every $ of your wealth has the same value as anyone else's.
