ANENG 618C DMM - Image Fail
« on: June 14, 2020, 05:03:30 am »
Hi,

from the official ANENG store on aliexpress:

[attachimg=2]


That is a peak power battery so may be it is 10V.

and

[attachimg=1]

This really gives me confidence in the product.

It's par for the course for their marketing department, they've been doing it for years.  :popcorn:

Luckily for us we can do teardowns and stuff. The truth is out there.

I'm confused, how does a data line overload a dmm, and why is it wired to a mains outlet..?   :-//

Not to mention you now need an adaptor to go from a firewire to a mains outlet. I mean, what could possibly go wrong with that..?

For the price point USD $26 I'm not sure what is the main feature. Series 618A,B,C do not have current or thermocouple temp measurement but seem to have a big display, be slim AAA batteries and no more rotary switch, which I've never minded.
"Zero FireWire Induction recognition" seems to sense hazardous live/neutral using one probe lead (E-field). Looking forward to trusting my life to that. "Dididi" alarm is three beeps. They really need to run the marketing ad past someone technical who speaks English.

I don't see why it has to show its temperature all the time, and with two extra leading zeroes to further annoy you with this useless information 0024C. Frequency also, do I need to see 0060Hz all the time? The second LCD display seems to be a waste.

Looks and form factor?
