Product Description

The Amprobe 38SW-A software and cable accessory kit enables data to be transferred from the Amprobe 38XR-A digital multimeter to a computer. The software provides a graphical user interface for viewing the uploaded data, and the data can be exported to Microsoft Excel for processing and analysis. The RS-232 data cable connects the Amprobe 38XR-A digital multimeter to a computer. The software works on computers running the Windows 98, NT, 2000, or XP operating systems.

Multimeters are electrical test meters that measure multiple properties of an electrical circuit, such as current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, and continuity. Available in handheld or benchtop models, multimeters diagnose electrical problems in electrical equipment, wiring, and power supplies. A variety of probes, clamps, and leads can be used to connect the meter to a circuit or device. Multimeters display information either in analog or digital form. Factors that influence meter choice include the electrical properties to be measured, the anticipated range of results, and the desired level of protection against transient voltages. Safety ratings are based on the International Electrotechnical Commission's (IEC) standards for low-voltage test equipment. IEC 61010 delineates four overvoltage installation categories. In general, a meter with a category IV rating will provide more protection against transient voltages than a meter with a lower category rating.

Amprobe manufactures electrical testing equipment for commercial, industrial, and home use. The company was founded in 1948 and is headquartered in Everett, WA.

This works as advertised; you can record data from a Amprobe 38XR-A multimeter with this device.

That said, RS232 is pretty old-school; most modern computers don't have an RS232 serial port, so you'll need a USB to RS232 adapter -- available for about $10.

The software itself looks pretty ancient too, but it does work on Windows 7. (I forget if I had to run it in compatability mode.) It looks like you can roll your own software; the multimeter just sends text over the serial connection, although it would take a little processing to interpret it.

In short, it works, but it's kind of clunky -- especially for the price; I could roll my own adapter (with USB) for less.
