New Fluke 233/A Remote Display Automotive Multimeter Wins Prestigious MOTOR Magazine Top 20 Tools Award

Removable Display Improves Access and Safety, Lets One Technician Do the Work of Two

EVERETT, WA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) - The award-winning Fluke 233 Remote Display Multimeter has won again. The automotive version, the Fluke 233/A Remote Display Automotive Multimeter Kit, has received a Top 20 Tools Award presented by the editors of MOTOR Magazine, which serves independent repair and service establishments, gasoline service stations and new car dealers.

The Fluke 233/A Automotive Multimeter and other MOTOR Top 20 Tools winners are featured in the magazine's September 2010 issue, distributed nationally to more than a half-million readers.

Since its introduction in Q4 2009, the innovative Fluke 233 Multimeter has won multiple industry awards. The product recently received the Silver Award in the Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. Readers of Plant Engineering picked the Fluke 233 as 2009 Product of the Year. Additionally, it won an Honorable Mention in the Control Engineering Magazine Engineers' Choice Awards, Process Control -- Power Monitoring category, and was named a finalist in the Design News Magazine Golden Mousetrap Awards, Test & Measurement World Best in Test Awards and Electronic Design News Innovation Awards.

The Fluke 233/A Remote Display Automotive Multimeter is the industry's first digital multimeter with a detachable wireless display. Broadly speaking, this unique capability of the 233/A can help technicians in three ways: accessibility, staffing and safety. 

  • Vehicle engine compartments are cramped; now the technician can position the display right next to the test point, still have room for his hands, and read the measurement without taking his attention away from the test leads. 

  • Using the Fluke 233/A a single technician can attach the meter to the brake light wiring in the back of the car, remove the display and read results from the driver's seat while stepping on the brake pedal. 

  • The same approach allows a technician to safely road test a vehicle with the meter under the hood and the display in the cabin.
