The B&K Precision model 5492B is a versatile 5-digit, 120,000-count bench multimeter suitable for applications in education, service repair, and manufacturing. The instrument enhances your productivity with built-in math functions and USB connectivity. Rel, Max/Min, dBm, dB, %, and Hold functions provide educators with a convenient tool to teach basic math concepts. Additionally, the 5492B offers powerful features not commonly found in other 5- digit DMMs such as advanced triggering, buffer storage operation, and a GPIB interface option.

The 5492B measures volts and amps with great accuracy and stability, with basic VDC accuracy of 0.01%. The meter is also capable of measuring frequency, period, resistance, continuity, and performing diode tests. Readings can be taken at a maximum rate of 57 readings/sec and stored to an internal 512-byte buffer for post acquisition statistical analysis.

The 5492B was designed for cost-conscious users requiring an accurate meter with a broad range of features offered at a value price.

Features include:

5-digit, 120,000-count display resolution
0.01% basic VDC accuracy
Advanced triggering options such as external, bus and event trigger
Two and four-wire resistance measurement up to 120 MO
AC voltage and AC current measurement over wide frequency range (ACV 100 kHz/ACI 10 kHz)
AC (RMS) and DC current measurements up to 12 A
Limit mode for Pass/Fail testing
Save/recall up to 10 instrument settings
Built-in math functions: Rel, Max/Min, dBm, dB, %, Hold, Compare
CATI (1000 V)/CATII (300 V) protection
USB (Virtual Com) and RS232 interface
SCPI compatible
