EVERETT, WA--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - From an ode to the "timeless" 555 Timer to designing and building your own custom control panel, the latest industry newsletter from Fluke Corporation is written to help electronics engineers and technicians, field electronics technicians, bench technicians, aeronautical engineers, and hobbyists take advantage of new technology, solve problems, and do more with less.

The new issue of Fluke Electronics News, which is now available on the Fluke web site, takes you step-by-step with Keithly Electric of Seattle as it designs a custom control panel to keep a 100-horsepower blower motor in environmental compliance.

Also in this issue: a Tech Tip on the differences between what a digital multimeter and an oscilloscope can measure, and how to pick the correct tool for the job. There's a behind-the-scenes look at the new 190 Series II ScopeMeter and how it was developed with the help of Fluke customers. And a tribute to a 40-year-young staple for hobbyists and engineers: the highly reliable 555 Timer.

The new edition features online-only extras related to the newsletter stories, including a video look inside the Keithly Electric custom panel shop and a video segment showing how to take measurements across the room with a Fluke 233 Remote Display DMM.

Fluke newsletters are designed to give industry professionals information they can use on the job, and show how to put Fluke instruments to work. Newsletters are written for plant engineering and maintenance professionals; electricians and electrical contractors; and HVAC, indoor air quality contractors and weatherization professionals. A newsletter for industrial electronics technicians, Fluke Electronics News is published only in online form.
