Agilent Technologies Introduces Wireless Link for Remote Monitoring and Data Logging with Handheld Digital Multimeters
March 1, 2012
SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 1, 2012 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the introduction of a wireless connectivity
solution that links up to three
Agilent handheld digital multimeters to smartphones,
tablets and PCs. By enabling remote viewing and
control from distances of up to 10 meters, this solution enhances convenience and safety for engineers and technicians when
troubleshooting live machinery or working in hazardous conditions.
The core of the connectivity solution is the
U1177A, a compact Bluetooth wireless adapter that
plugs into any of Agilent’s 11
handheld DMMs. The solution includes two free mobile applications based on Google’s Android operating system, one for basic monitoring and
another for data logging. The “mobile meter” application enables real-time interaction with connected DMMs on the screen of an
Android-based smartphone or tablet. The “mobile logger” application simplifies data logging and remote monitoring. Agilent also
offers a free data-logging application that runs on Windows®-based PCs.
“Figuratively speaking, this scalable solution allows the user to be in more than one place at the same time,” said Ee Huei Sin,
vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Basic Instruments Division. “What’s more, users can save data as text or a picture
and share the file via email, Facebook, or any other pathway supported by the Android operating system.”
Agilent handhelds range from $99 basic models to $450 advanced models. Examples include the industrial U1270 Series,
the feature-packed U1250 Series, the versatile U1240 Series, and the rugged, ergonomic U1230 Series.
U.S. Pricing and Availability
The remote connectivity solution is now available worldwide. The U.S. list price of the U1177A Bluetooth module is $48.
The free Android-based mobile applications are available through the Android Market and the Agilent website.
The free PC-based data-logging application is available for download from the Agilent website.
