Agilent Technologies Launches Cool Skins for Its Handheld Digital Multimeters

(PresseBox) (Santa Clara, ) Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced new, thematic skins for the U1240 and U1250 Series handheld digital multimeters (DMMs). The new skins allow engineers and technicians to personalise their DMMs, which are used to perform everyday measurements and troubleshooting tasks.

"With portable electronics such as iPhones, Sony PSP, Blackberry PDAs and laptops getting the personal touch, why should your multimeter be any different?" asked Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Basic Instruments Division. "The thematic skins of our handheld DMMs allow engineers and technicians to express themselves through their trusty DMM. It gives them a greater sense of pride when they say, 'This is my DMM.'"

All four skins are free, for a limited time only, with the purchase of Agilent U1241B, U1242B, U1251B, U1252B or U1253B DMM. Skins are currently available in Europe, Asia (excluding Japan) and South America; and will be available in the United States and Canada on July 15, 2010.
