Equipped with powerful functionality

  • TrendCapture quickly graphically displays logged data session to quickly determine whether anomalies may have occurred
  • Zoom on trend provides unprecedented ability to view and analyze TrendCapture data; zoom in up to 14 times
  • Selectable ac filter (Smoothing mode) helps display a steadier reading when the input signal is changing rapidly or noisy
  • Adjustable recording and auto hold thresholds, specify a percentage change in the readings that begins a new event
  • Large 50,000 count, 1/4 VGA dot matrix display with white backlight
  • Logging function with expanded memory for unattended monitoring of signals over time. Using on-board TrendCapture users can graphically review logged readings without needing a PC. Store up to 15,000 recorded events.
  • Save multiple logging sessions before pc download is necessary
  • Two terminal 50 ohm range with 1 milliohm resolution, 10 mA source current. Useful for measuring and comparing differences in motor winding resistance or contact resistance.
  • Low Pass filter for accurate voltage and frequency measurements at the same time on adjustable speed motor drives and other electrically noisy equipment
  • LoZ Volts. Low impedance voltage function for eliminating ghost voltages. Also recommended when testing for absence or presence of live power.
  • "i" button. On board help screens for measurement functions. Unsure about a function-go to that function and press the "i" button.
  • Real time clock for automatic time stamping of saved readings
  • Relative mode to remove test lead resistance from low ohms or capacitance measurements
  • True-rms ac voltage and current for accurate measurements on non linear signals
  • Measure up to 10 A (20 A for 30 seconds)
  • 100 mF capacitance range
  • Peak capture to record transients as fast as 250 µs
  • Optional magnetic hanger for easy setup and viewing while freeing your hands for other tasks
  • Optically isolated communication port for transferring data to pc (usb cable and software optional)
  • Limited lifetime warranty

There can be no other than Fluke in my company

I am a long time Fluke customer, and have had a long line of Fluke products that I still use every day. I am in the generator sales/service industry. I will not allow any of my employees to have less than a Fluke 187. My 189 is a back-up, but I never have to use it unless I need two at a time. Nothing silences a noisy customer better than a nice looking print-out of what his generator will, and won't, do. I enjoy it when discussing problems with a factory and they question my numbers, and I tell them that they are from a Fluke 289, they move on to another subject.Fluke. There can be no other.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Most Useful Tool in My Bag

I'm an A/V system integrator and live audio veteran and am absolutely in love with this meter. Being able to have voltage measurements displayed in dBm and dBV is an absolutely indespensible tool in the field or at a show. The dBm range correlates perfectly to dBu when set to mimic a 600-ohm impedance. If I have a problem with a system input or output, in little more than the time it takes to connect the leads, I have all the info I need to point me in the right direction. With the AC mV function displaying dBm, I can actually directly measure microphone outputs (and make quick use of the readings), which is something I've pined for in a meter for quite a while. It's saved me countless head-scratching sessions.The Crest Factor function is also great for quickly checking whether an audio test signal is being distorted somewhere up-stream.I've also had it on the bench verifying performance on countless products. Trend Capture is awesome for predicting how much a setting will drift after an A/V system has been commissioned. It's nice knowing these things before a service call is ever made.I also use the 50-Ohm range in the field to check speaker systems for proper impedance loading. It's nice having that extra bit of accuracy when you're dealing with systems that have numerous loudspeakers.Adjustable display contrast on-the-fly makes for easy readings in any environment.All in all, it's an absolutely wonderful tool for what I do.I would LOVE to see a real-time graph implemented sometime in the future if it's possible. I don't like having to stop a recording and restart it to check progress.My only real complaint is that I don't have two of them! Not to say my 87V doesn't get its fair share of attention. ;)

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

excellent meter

In 2004 or so Fluke came out with the 189 and I bought one. I liked the accuracy and came back in 2007/2008 and bought FOUR 289's. I use them constantly. They have paid for themselves in the recording capability which helps troubleshooting to a very high degree. Being able to capture faults in an operating system is kind of like having a storage scope but for far less cost. The accuracy is top notch and the Fluke durability is key if you need to use your meters on a daily basis for your occupation. I suggest putting lithium batteries in them, these meters are power hungry little devils, they eat up alkaline batteries like no tomorrow and the best way to combat that is to use lithium batteries. In all other regards, I recommend this meter without reservation.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

This meter has the versatility for any job.

As a technician at a R&D facility I work on a variety of different projects. I not only build prototypes, but visit operational sites to troubleshoot and repair in service units. With the 289 I am able to record transients; to test not only for continuity, but to reverse continuity check; to measure frequency; to measure microamps; to test components, including the value of capacitors. Since I travel all over the world, having to carry only one meter is a real plus for me.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Good but.......

I bought this meter when it first came out, actually ordered it before it was released from my distributor. It has served well the past couple years but recently I have had to send it in for repair twice for the same problem. That doesn't sit well with me. I haven't had any problems with my other fluke products but I don't feel I can trust my 289 when it keeps getting sent back for repair.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Fits my needs, and then some

As the diagnostician in a diesel and automotive repair shop, I was in need of a meter that would allow me to perform just about any test my job would require. My choice of the 289 was obvious, as the trend-plot feature is a life saver when diagnosing intermittent issues. The large VGA screen helps readability when working over an operating engine. When working on the interior or undercarriage, the backlight is a necessity. I have also found the 50 ohm function very useful for testing the serial data wiring in modern systems as they are very sensitive to corrosion and other resistance inducing conditions. The only major issue I have with the 289's features is the lack of real time graphing and a min, max, and average display for the recording. All told, I believe I have made the right choice in purchasing this product and expect many years of use from it.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Amazing Meter

Have had the 289 for close to a year now and really like it. I had the previous version 189 since 2001 I think, this is the third fluke meter I have owned a fluke meter since 1996 and had some minor problems, of which were not a fluke problem. The first meter 87 had water damage, using it during a rain storm, the board had failed. I decided to purchase the 189 instead of getting a new board. I am in heating and air conditioning field and loved that it could read capacidence which the first version 87 did not. The 189 have had for 11 years and it was the best meter I have owned had no issues with it at all, except it fell out of my tool bag and dropped 12 feet and busted the screen. The company that I work for has a tool replacement program so I looked into the 289. I love that you can log voltage, amps and temperature 189 did that but needed a computer to review recordings. The 289 can do it at the meter which is a faster process. You will love this meter a lot. I have trusted fluke meters and amp clamps since the first day I had bought one. Will not use any other, very dependable.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.
