BRYMEN did it again.
Latest electronics technology married with extreme innovation, and the outcome is clamp meter capable to compete with most high end 6.000 counts multimeter. BM079 is the top of the iceberg, capable of three phase rotation and Temperature measurement.
BRYMEN welcomes 2015 with one additional product Series which was missing from their product line. BM870 Series is the combination of a fully featured multimeter with the needed functionality for insulation measurements. ITTSB will review BM878 model which combines most features for an industrial electrician.

GW Instek GDS-320 Oscilloscope & GDP-040D Review
In Taitronics 2014 GW Instek walked away with the gold award of innovation due their GDS-200 & GDS-300 series.
Today ITTSB with pride announcing the product review of GDS-320 that is the leading model regarding bandwidth as Oscilloscope, and also regarding counts as multimeter.
Sexy & Beyond is the marketing logo of this product series which is correlated with the promotion video of GW Instek about the specific advertising campaign.
ITTSB shown significant interest to receive and evaluate one sample of this new pack of innovation, the main question is how GDS-320 measure-up in applications which an industrial electrician gets involved with?
I like to thanks GW Instek for accepting this challenge regarding the product review, and about donating both equipment GDS-320 and GDP-040P, the second is the differential probe option which offer the ability to GDS-200 & 300 Series about single phase, and phase to phase electrical measurements up to 600V RMS in Oscilloscope mode.
GDS-300 Series is not a usual DSO in a small package, there is one significant amount of software applications inside this equipment which using the hardware as multimeter or as Oscilloscope in many ways, and this makes possible even complex electrical measurements.
GW Instek due these software applications for GDS-300 has the flexibility to expand the potentials regarding new software applications even further.
ITTSB suggested to GW Instek R&D team the creation of another one software application which will expand GDS-300 potentials as Watt meter too.
I am very pleased to announce a new marketing cooperation of ITTSB Blog and APC by Schneider Electric, and more specifically with Mr. George Dritsanos Director of North East Marketing division (based in Serbia).
APC by Schneider Electric in Greece and their director of sales Mr. Tasos Sarris among with Thalia Serekla (PR) manager. They both helped so one sample unit of latest APC-SMC1500I this to arrive for a product review.
Multimeter them getting constantly improved because ITTSB Blog it does record engineering innovations and even past made mistakes.

HIOKI RM3542A this is newest Resistance Meter for precision work.
ITTSB Blog proudly presents pictures of HIOKI RM3542A. This is not a regular resistance meter, primary use this is for resistors precision verification at production line .
RM3542A arrived at ITTSB Blog so this to serve in a special project, I am going to upgrade all resistors of my decade resistor box with product samples from Vishay Foil resistors (VPG) all secondary standards class.
ITTSB goal this is evaluation of up to 7 ½ bench top multimeter in the near future.
Special thanks to HIOKI EE Corporation and to Michelle Uchiyama Marketing Manager, for all battles that she gave so my proposal for RM3542A Resistance Meter this to gain approval.
Special thanks to M.J PRINIOTAKIS S.A.I.C in Greece, Test and measurement division and HIOKI authorized reseller. Katerina Priniotaki - Managing Director, she helped by importing RM3542A at no cost for ITTSB Blog.

ITTSB Blog this now increases it ability to high precision testing thanks to
VISHAY FOIL RESISTORS & VPG POWERTRON
Thanks to Mr. David Gazit, Marketing | Vishay Foil Resistors | VPG.
ITTSB Blog will engage in two projects that in both we are are going to use latest high technology products.
I am very pleased to announce a new marketing cooperation between ITTSB Blog and Vishay Foil Resistors brand.
ITTSB Blog it did receive quantity of 62 Ultra-High precision resistors at tightest accuracy specifications possible.
Vishay Foil Resistors product models: S104K, VHP101, VHP202, VHP203, all encapsulated to metal shields for prolonged stability.
Both projects are in a schedule of high priority. All work involved this will be well documented, and relative case study documents will be distributed to Vishay Foil Resistors brand and HIOKI brand for their own use. Announcements of finalized Projects them will replace parts of this first announcement.
Upcoming Project: I am going to upgrade all resistors of my decade resistor box (this made back in 2010), now using product samples from Vishay Foil Resistors brand, all secondary standard class.
New !! Resistors box this is for insulation resistance testers & verification of their calibration, by this using latest POWERTRON GST4020
Several High Value Thick Film Resistance Elements, Resistance Tolerances to ± 0.25%, TCR’s to ±25 ppm/K, them able to handle 4000 ACV.
I like to thanks Mr. Frank Weise , VPG Senior Field Design Engineer for all it help in this project.
Special Thanks to FLUKE Calibration division and Mr. Rich McFadden, Product Manager Electrical Calibrators.
ITTSB Blog this it did receive a copy of FLUKE Calibration - Second edition book
Many thanks to my new friends at FLUKE Calibration for their kind contribution of this Fluke Cal Book to ITTSB Blog.
Since 2017 ITTSB Blog this starts exploring in waters of calibration enthusiasts, therefore we do welcome all help that we can get but only from qualifying sources.

Basic Power Analysis test bed | Power measurements | Inverters testing
Product reviews and evaluation of measuring tools this is one side of the coin.
True purpose of any electrical measuring tool this is delivery of reliable measurements’ in tasks relative to basic power analysis.
Power quality inspection and testing of individual electrical appliances consumption, these are both new challenges for every active electrician of our times.
Basic power analysis this is a job for good multimeter and clamp on meter and naturally of high performance oscilloscopes.
ITTSB Blog this started getting prepared to conduct product reviews of ups and inverters, such a test lab this requiring special tools and as such are adjustable ACV input source 0~270 Volts, ACV loads among with Single Phase Voltage and Current Breakout Box.
I did follow the route of DIY electrical engineering and test tools assembly in my own workbench.
Regarding bill of materials and cost estimates, I did follow most cost effective path but even so by using exclusively highest quality of parts them complying to most recent IEC directives’.
Today they are scheduled two DIY projects, and links and pictures will be added at this Blog sector.
I like to thanks DER EE ELECTRICAL METER CO. LTD. in Taiwan for their sponsoring of all necessary analog meters for those too ITTSB Blog projects’.
ITTSB scheduled project:
