Sadly, many electricians have a very limited understanding of what can be done with a multimeter and an even smaller idea of how to judge a good one vs. a bad one. At the end of the day, it's less important whether you own the "best" multimeter, but whether you own the best multimeter for your needs.

Well generally speaking you are correct , but ....  there is an extra filtering factor when you get in the industrial field.
This filter , it does separates the ones who have limited understanding from the ones who haves an wider one.
By my understanding, the industrial environment , is the only " space " that electrical and electronics must coexist.
And this " space " is available only for people who had some how be or get baptized,  in both skills.

So... How will we organize it when the packet arrives? I will be the camera guy and Petros the director?

 ;D ;D ;D ;D :P :P :P :P

I do understand your enthusiasm ,  
Even me , I am arresting my self to occasionally be in smiling mode,  just with the idea of what happened so far.
Even the contact person of Agilent smiled to me by the use of a smiley.

Well I prefer to keep a low profile for the moment.
And saving the smiles for now.
If the Agilent U1272A manages to impresses me  ( Agilent words)
I will scream about it ..  ;D
Its a promise.

Yes you are right. But I am really happy it was you that was selected. If it was another guy I confess that I could be little envious about it...
Become a realist, stay a dreamer.

JEALOUS! Nicely done, though. Can't wait to see your full commentary.

Agilent, or anybody else if you're looking, take note: I will happily review in anger ANY gear you'd like to send. I don't mess around.

I have plenty of ideas about the basic chapters of my commentary,
but I will keep them hidden until the end of the main test period ( one month ),
I have all ready the feeling that I am going to write exams about the U1272A  :D

Nop, you have to mess well with the Fluke ones, so to gain interest .
You must to learn first, how to kill them and revive them .  ;D  ;D  ;D

its true both Agilent and Fluke are 2 big names, but.... let me not into it.
btw: if only Agilent send me their "Free" clamp meter, i will be grateful :D. Currently i'm thinking of getting one to check my home AC consumption, specifically Uni-T, so i'll got another sexy redhead :D
if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

About clamp probe I had sale my soul to Chauvin-Arnoux  True RMS AC/DC ,
and I will always thanks PetrosA for the suggestion, so to look at that brand.
( Even if it took more than two weeks studying specs so to make my mind)  :P
(The technical documents " Made In France " looks as disaster , hard to understand )  

I would also suggest to get an clamp probe , instead of an clamp meter.
But the final choice are always yours.

Well for any one who cares to know.

I just got a email ..

It looks that there was a slight mix up about sending the unit to me ,
and finally the DMM will be send to me from Germany ..

Interesting turnout , the least that I can say.

The firmware hiccups of the U1272A , that solved before 18 hours,
caused an major delay in my story ( 40 days),
even so finally everything return to normal at the side of Agilent,
and my own unit it did shipped with DHL express from the factory.

Currently I do have active tracking , and watching the packet coarse.  :)   

Thursday, June 09
PENANG - MALAYSIA
BANGKOK - THAILAND 

Friday, June 10
BANGKOK - THAILAND
LEIPZIG - GERMANY

The unit comes with the old firmware,
and lots of accessories.

And from a different route in few weeks,
I will get one Agilent  T-shirt  (Go Orange Agilent Hand held)   :)
(currently available exclusively for Agilent Asia)
(As special gift from a special friend)


I am finally smiling again about that matter, its true.

No they can not declare it as gift,
And so another work around was found and legally acceptable .  :)

It did passed from my mind, the idea about getting it for me,
so to send it to me, but I was afraid that you will gonna keep it ..  LOL    :D

I act like a kid from my excitement, but I am justified.  :)

The bird landed to Athens yesterday, I count less than 10 hours about getting the box.

Who will ever believe that I would had such a delay for customs clearance,
plus one day on hold due the general strike in Greece.

I need just 12 hours of more patience, but now the package it is truly unstoppable,
with proofs.

Few words, many pictures  ;)  

Extra accessories: the case plus the modem, plus the Fine Tip Test Probes U1164A.  
I will not nag about them, even if I has hopping for more.  :P

Even so my suggestion to Agilent is to start using CD's.
I got no printed quick start guide, or one CD with the data-logger software and manuals in PDF.
Yes I have internet, but not every one has.    

The device looks good, the orange around it its not plastic material, its an hard rubber,
like the rubber found in car wheels.  

I had Power it up, tested the display back-light,
all looks ok.
The range switch looks a bit small for the size of my hands,
but it has an smooth operation.

I will have lots of fun with it, but I will need some time,
so to learn how to drive it ..  getting in the menus and stuff.  ;)

The first U1272A that came to Greece !!   :D
I will need few beers ..  soon.

you are wise to post pictures, otherwise i'll kick you in the foot! congratulation bro! ;)
ps: dont drink too much beers, beside the risk of wasting your money at the same cost as agilent, i'm afraid the next day the fw got crashed too! or the housing! for unknown reason :o :P :D

I love you bro and you know that...  8)

I will watch out about the beers,
it came with the latest firmware loaded all ready.

And so I started to play with the data logger,
I did find my way with it, but took me lots of hours.

Its time for the damn beers.   ;)

After of many days of testing and observations, I am finally to the point, to put everything on paper.  :)

Even so, the mailman had bring today one package from Agilent that came from Germany (Boblingen)
It was the T shirt (  T shirt's)

The photo model had a day off today, and so I did all the job alone.  ;)

(This T shirt is new line, made for the authorized distributors)
Enjoy the view ...  :P  ;D
