Finally! Hantek HDM3065 6.5 Digit DMM
« on: December 29, 2020, 02:48:00 pm »
Member "square circuit" posted on this forum back in July 8th 2019 that this meter was on the horizon. I have been checking every 2 or 3 months since then to see if this meter had dropped yet. Finally my wait is over! (I know where I'm spending my stimulus check, lol)

The 5.5 digit starts at $400 and the 6.5 digit version starts at $570.





They shied away from the total rip off of the look Keysight, and made it black so now it's only a 85% rip off of the design. If I had a black oscilloscope I might welcome that so it matched, but I'm planning on buying a Siglent so would have preferred the original color they planned to go with.



Probably one of the cheapest options to get a histogram multimeter.



Hope this helps someone who can't afford the A brands and wants something better than the really low end Chinese junk. Specs seem impressive for the price. Unlike the Tonghui TH1953 I bet the histogram feature actually works. I'm hoping someone does a review on this meter soon!

At the 1st picture at the AE shop, the words "Fast Aging" , what does that mean ?  :-//

Transparently and publicly stated its design with planned obsolescence ?  :-DD

...j/k... probably means the voltage reference, really curious what they use for 6.5 one.

Seriously  they should check what they write in their publicity .....  plain stupid,  they age the reference in it by letting it powered on until it sell   loll

Now they go in black too

The new keysight 3458a   will be black ???   and now the others brand will trend this way ?

A pale blue over black is baaaaad

Too Funny!

I'm pretty good at translating Chinglesh. No offense to my Chinese friends!
I think that "Fast Aging" is probably "Fast Updating"

This meter takes 30,000 reading per second, and 10,000 per second when in logging mode.

That publicity is from an independent seller and not from Hantek.
I kind of like the black trend, except I like everything to match so I hate that it will cause my bench to be a mix of colors.
I agree the light blue display looks terrible against the black. I frequently modify my meters to have a different color background so I will probably do the same for this one.

For anyone confused about the models I think the "B" version adds LAN, and the "H" version adds LAN and GPIB

Here is a link to Hantek product info:http://www.hantek.com/products/detail/16176

Thanks for the link Bob!   Sadly they don't have a manual available yet to download (or I couldn't find one).   The unit does look impressive but they also need to update the spec sheet.   For example they list thermocouples for temperature sensing in one place but then offer no info on that ability.    It would also be very interesting to know what that arbitrary sensor function is, I'm assuming you can apply a simple slope function to the input.

As for appearance - looks good to me.    Of course that means nothing if the meter has objectionable quirks, so yeah hopefully that testing will be done soon.   Maybe this turns out good enough that Dave can offer the meter as a high end option for the EEVBLOG.   Of course that would mean blue rubber 😅.

By the way the one thing that constantly pisses me off about these bench meters is the low CAT ratings they all have!!!!!    I regularly pull meters off the shelf to calibrate or diagnose issues on tools in the plant.   Generally the controls stuff is well separated from the high voltage stuff but weird things have happened in industry.   Often I go this route not so much for the extraordinary accuracy of a meter like this, but rather for the convenience over a handheld meter or functionality not had in a handheld.

It looks really cool and, if I had enough disposable income, I would definitely pull the trigger on one just to probe its performance. However, I would be very wary trusting it with accurate measurements without a clear calibration manual and heaps of tests. Hantek is famous for cutting corners, lacking in software and support in the long run.

At this level it becomes a lot about trust itself, otherwise I would simply take one of the other high count meters such as the 60k count U1282A or the 50k/500k count Brymens.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

Sadly they don't have a manual available yet to download (or I couldn't find one).

The AliExpress seller has said they will send me a copy of the manual, but it is only available in Chinese.
I'm interested in knowing more about the differences between HDM3055 and HDM3065 other than resolution.

Hope this helps someone who can't afford the A brands and wants something better than the really low end Chinese junk. Specs seem impressive for the price.

On the product info page it lists the basic accuracy as 75ppm, but down in the specs section it lists some better specs.  Those specs looked familiar--the DCV specs listed are exactly the same as the HP 34401A--and I mean every number. 

 :popcorn:
A 3.5 digit 4.5 digit 5 digit 5.5 digit 6.5 digit 7.5 digit DMM is good enough for most people.

Further evidence that caution is needed dealing with Hantek.   Imagine a US based company, playing on the international stage, that debuts a new model without manuals in a number of languages.   Beyond that you can't even find the Chinese manuals on their web site.     It just looks like the device was put up for sale before it was ready.

Personally I'm not too sure I would worry about this meter in the next 6 months.    If Hantek can't demonstrate better support in that time, the meters "cheap" price is looking to be a bit expensive.

Wait a second, this looks EXACTLY like the Siglent SDM3065X DMM but in black? I think I'd go with the Siglent model over the Hantek just for the color matching with the rest of my test rack equipment.

I see only renders, not any real photos, even on aliexpress. Anyway, before even considering, I'd like to see a teardown.

Video described as for 6.5 digit HDM3065 but HDM3055 is used. I have the impression that the HDM3065 version is not yet in production.
