The 8588A Reference Multimeter is the worldâ€™s most stable digitizing multimeter. Designed for calibration laboratories, this long-scale high-precision reference features superior accuracy and long-term stability over a wide measurement range, with an intuitive user interface and a color display.
The 8588A delivers reliable and reproducible measurements with exceptional performance suitable for primary level laboratories. With more than 12 measurement functions, including the new digitize voltage, digitize current, capacitance, RF power, and external shunts for dc and ac current, the 8588A helps you consolidate your labâ€™s cost of test into a single measurement instrument. Its superb analog performance is augmented by Fluke Calibrationâ€™s new high-speed system design and the industryâ€™s fastest direct digitizing capability, enabling significant throughput increase for many automated systems demanding a combination of the highest speed and best accuracy.
The 8588A holds industryâ€™s best one-year dc voltage accuracy of 2.7 uV/V at 95 % confidence interval, or 3.5 uV /V at 99 %, and best 24-hour stability of 0.5 uV/V (95 %) or 0.65 uV/V (99 %), enabling it to outperform other long-scale reference multimeters on the market. The 8588A further pushes the speed envelope by producing a stable 8.5 digits reading in a mere one second.
The 8588A platform consists of two models:
- The 8588A Reference Multimeter is designed for calibration and metrology laboratories that require the highest stability for the most accurate measurements to maintain maximum confidence in traceability
- The 8558A 8.5 Digit Multimeter offers a subset of 8588A functions and features at an extremely competitive accuracy and speed performance.
Each model features a common intuitive user interface with an easy-to-navigate menu structure for all configuration and matching SCPI-compliant commands for an automated environment. In addition, both models support a minimum of 100,000 readings per second at 4.5 digits across GPIB, USB or Ethernet.
