W.T.B Fluke IR189 USB USB Cable 280/180 Series
« on: February 26, 2018, 12:06:14 am »
I'm looking for the ir data cable for my 289 if anyone knows of or has 1 for sale for a decent price. They are on sale on Ebay for £45 but that's a bit steep for a cable I think. Fluke boot the hoop out of paying for the name!  :wtf:

Anyways if anyone can help me source 1 i'd be very grateful. Thanks...

I happen to have the relevant links open right now, because I was also looking into the USB cable:

Transistor-based design w/FT232RL, tested with 287: http://bbs.38hot.net/thread-17883-1-1.html
Comparator-based design w/FT232RL, tested with 189: https://kimboricha.blogspot.kr/2013/12/build-usb-to-fluke-189-irinfrared.html
Direct connection w/CP2102, tested with 87IV: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/fluke-87iv-please-whisper-in-my-ir-p/
eBay listing for what appears to be a comparator-based design: https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-optoisolated-IR-adapter-for-Fluke/182450421884

i I have exactly what you need, original, bought from Farnell (http://uk.farnell.com/fluke/ir189usb/interface-ir-fluke-ir189usb/dp/9479740) some years ago. I used it in the past with a Fluke 189. I am willing to part for it for 25 EUR (excluding shipping costs). I just took these pictures on my desk. Let me know if at that price it is interesting for you and I will try to get a quote for shipping.

Cristian.

Thanks for the offer Cristian but turns out my friend has one I can borrow for now so i'll go with that. I may get my own at a later date depending how much I use it. My friend said he hardly uses his so I can have his when ever I need it.

Thank you very much all the same....Terry

Farnell UK are now doing the IR189 USB cable for £39! Just flashed up on a header at the bottom of the screen! That's the best price I've seen by quite a bit for anyone else looking for 1.
