Have you seen if any data is output on those calibration pins?

To my inexperienced eyes it looks pretty nicely done, although I don't know if I like the method of attaching the input terminals to the board.
Was there any thread-lock/star washers/etc on those screws? I'd be concerned about them slackening off and giving an intermittent connection.

Cute as it is, the lack of even a basic, sub-1A ammeter function is a deal breaker for me.

For those who haven't seen the other link, check out

Nice teardown and comments.

Can I ask you a favour and take a close up high resolution picture of the area in red?  I'm trying to figure out what IC Fluke used and if I can see the connected components, I may be able to deduce the IC?

@Napalm2002
I'm sorry,For the following reasons , I unable to receive cash from paypal,cost of ship maybe more than USD30 even use EMS/USPS
Users Manual on fluke is in 14 languages , so I think it is a product for Worldwide Sale ,maybe just wait sometime,it will on the US market

If you can make it 2 or 3 times bigger so I can read all the SMD markings that would be great.  Ideally, I would like to be able to see where each trace from the IC goes to.

Thank you and there is no rush for the picture.
