OWON XDM1041 the unknown multimeter...
« on: February 25, 2021, 08:53:04 am »
Hi,
I've found on ebay the bench multimeter OWON XDM1041 : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/OWON-XDM1041-3-7in-LCD-Mini-Desktop-Digital-Multimeter-True-RMS-Tester-Meter-New/164717198621?hash=item2659e8fd1d:g:ARwAAOSwLYRgM4M~

But I don't find any information about it outside of the ebay product description, I've also checked on the Owon website but no info about it. I've sent an email to the Owon contact to try to get info, no reply yet.

Comparing the specs, they are pretty close to the Owon xdm2041.

Someone know this product ?

Thanks.

Certainly a nice form factor...


Only two or three hits on google, maybe it's a very new model.

Thanks for the link.

Yes it seems to be a new model, I like the small size of the box instead of the big box of the usual bench multimeters. I will wait if I can find more info/review of it but I think it can fit pretty well in my small lab...  :)

Hi,
I've just got the confirmation from Owon it is a new model:
Owon email : "it is a new one, you will see on our website later."

It's a nice form factor and inexpensive. Unfortunately, just like for XDM2041, they probably will disable all fancy functions, like math statistics and trend chart. So its no better than a hand-held, although there is value in having the multimeter always on. A better choice would be to keep analysis functions to take advantage of the nice LCD display. That would set it apart from other simple bench meters.

I also noticed this recently and was curious if it had anything to offer over one of the East Testers, which gets constant use in my lab and I love.

Yes for the moment I don't find any specific info about the features. I'm waiting for the "official" Owon presentation to get the user manual and check all features.

Just stumbled across this myself on ebay.
I kinda like the look of it!
Shame it's not battery powered.

I regularly check if I can find the user manual or an official presentation on the Owon site but nothing yet... It will be cool if they can have a measure logging function.

Just bad, they do not have 4 wire resistor measurement...

Who will click on "buy" first?  ;D

Punched the buy button last week.  :)

I think the form factor will be perfect for probing and glancing up without having to move my eyes to far away. I known it can be done with a bench meter or hand held but bench meters are big and deep and handhelds are usually at a funky angle when sitting on the tilting bale.

And like that it has a real IEC cord for power and I don't have to deal with batteries or keeping track of the right plug pack. (sorry Dave)

I wouldn't expect it to have great protection or accuracy but it should be good for basic troubleshooting and probing around an Arduino.

Also in the past I've gotten really good support from Owon for one of their USB scopes so I have some confidence that if there are any issues they'll standby their products.

All yet to be seen. If I get it first I'll post pictures of the innards and let the real experts post their analysis and opinions.

Tons of sellers with timed offers ...  witch one i should use or buy   damn :(

The cheapest price is around 125$ usd with a 49 cent shipping  loll  and the others around 150$ usd with 17$ usd  shipping ???

And the surprises are in the handling time,  most says 10 days after the payment is received and some goes up to 21 days ???

As with almost all benchtops regardless of price, it's only CAT II rated. But good enough for basic mains bench work.

There is nothing nice about it if you intend to use it as a bench meter. It will be pushed back when you try pressing any button, so you will need to hold it with another hand when pressing buttons.

Put your hand on top and press with the thumb.

Pressing with index finger will be uncomfortable anyway at that height/angle.

one could possibly 3d-print an alternative back housing, with extra length containing batteries and/or a lead weight, space for storing leads, carry handle, etc.

i look forward to seeing a teardown   :-+


cheers,

Many ways to put it somewhat stable on the desk.
even a crude pair of silicone feet will prevent it from sliding around to much, otherwise you have this tape'ish rubber-like materiel, you can put underneath that almost grap the surface and if it gets dirty you can take it off and wash it and its good as new.
also recall its that materiel they are now fitting on products like Insta360 Go2 wall-mounts for the camera and no actual adhesive, just very grippy rubberlike materiel. you can put behind a given product.
Same with RC and batteries on quads so the LIPO aint sliding.
It seems they have come a long way since those silicone pads, you could use on your deck in the car for phones and coins..

I've contacted Owon asking more details about this new meter and they sent me a spec sheet with some more information, including a picture of the inside (see pdf attached. I had split the file as it was a bit over the forum's 4MB limit).

It looks interesting, at least more useful than the AN888S but BW is only 1kHz and the dual display only shows VAC + Hz. Apparently, they are planning to update the serial communication to USB soon.

1khz ac bandwidth   seriously ??   Any serious company should have a 100khz on any modern meter

Thanks for the PDF very useful, so the functions are very similar with the OWON XDM2041

well, it can calculate TRMS on anything between 20Hz and 1kHz, but it can measure frequencies up to 60MHz according to the above datasheet. bear in mind that TRMS, if done digitally, requires a fair bit of oversampling to work.

also of note, temperature can be measured with either k-type thermocouple or a resistive PT100 sensor.

from the inside views, it looks like there is a 5-wire connector off the multimeter PCB running to the AC PSU and serial PCBs. an educated guess is that this carries a single-ended supply (2-wires) and opto-isolated serial (3-wires). if this is the case, modification for battery powered may well be on the cards    :-+

The 1kHz BW deprives this model of all advantages and equates it to the AN888S and similar low-cost devices. ;)
