Fluke Corp, Everett, Wash, a provider of handheld electronic test and measurement technology, plans to donate two high-performance 289 True-rms industrial logging multimeters with TrendCapture to each of 10 qualifying educational institutions through its new education grant program.

The Fluke Education Partnership is a Web-based program offering educators in technical, university, and apprenticeship programs free curriculum materials and a 25% discount on all Fluke handheld test tools. Educators can apply for the grants to help train students to diagnose problems in electronics, plant automation, power distribution, and electromechanical equipment.

Program members must apply for grants on the company’s Web site by Dec 15, 2007. Ten winning institutions will be announced in February 2008, and the equipment will be delivered in March.

The Fluke 289 features a 50,000-count, 3-1/2 inch 1/4 VGA dot-matrix display with a white backlight that can simultaneously display multiple sets of measurement information. It includes context-sensitive onboard help screens, multiple save options, and automatic time stamping for recall of measurements made in the field, and features a logging function with expanded memory that stores up to 10,000 readings for unattended monitoring of signals over time.
