Fluke donates multimeters through education program

Fluke Australia will donate new high-performance logging digital multimeters to educational institutions through a new Fluke education grant program.

Fluke is offering two of its new 287 True-rms Electronics Logging Multimeters and two new Fluke 289 True-rms Industrial Logging Multimeters to each of 20 qualifying educational institutions.

The grant is designed to help ensure educators, students and entry-level professionals have access to state-of-the-art technology. The program lets instructors in accredited programs apply for grants of the Fluke 287 and the 289. These can then be used for training students in electronics test and design performance verification applications or to teach students to diagnose problems in electronics, plant automation, power distribution and electromechanical equipment.

Members of the Fluke Education Partnership program can apply for the grant by completing an application form available on the Fluke Education Partnership Web site. The Fluke Education Partnership is a web-based program offering educators in technical, university and apprenticeship programs free materials and discounts on all Fluke handheld test tools.

Membership is free, to register go to

The deadline for applications is February 29, 2008. Applications will be reviewed by a committee from Fluke for program elements, including breadth of course offering, degree/certification qualifications and statistics, and plans for using the Fluke digital multimeters within the curriculum.

The 20 winning institutions will be announced in April 2008. Winners will receive either a pair of Fluke 287 True-rms Electronics Logging Multimeters with TrendCapture valued at $890 (ex GST) each or a Fluke 289 True-rms Industrial Logging Mulitmeter valued at $925 (ex GST).
