Product Information

Rohde & Schwarz HMC8012 Digital Multimeter


Rohde & Schwarz HMC8012 Digital Multimeter

  • True RMS measurement, AC, AC + DC
  • Simultaneous display of three measurement function
  • Data logging to internal memory or USB stick
  • Ideal for industrial environments
The HCM8012 Benchtop Digital Multimeter offers a 5-3/4 digit display (480,000 points) resulting in measurement ranges that are four times higher without any requirement of range switching. It facilitates measurements in the measurement category II with a voltage of up to 600 V, as opposed to the standard of only 300 V in this instrument class. With the HMC8012, current measurements across the entire range can be performed with only one connector. This eliminates any manual switching during range transfers. Additionally, an integrated watt meter enables power measurement in the DC range.

With a base accuracy of 0.015% in the DC range, the HMC8012 can display up to 3 measured values on the brilliant TFT color screen, including a DC voltage, a AC voltage and related statistics. The HMC8012 offers 12 different measurement functions: VDC and IDC, True RMS VAC and IAC, frequency, 2- and 4-wire resistance, capacity, continuity, diode, temperature and performance. Extensive math functions such as limit testing, min/max, means, offset, DC performance, dB and dBm are available to facilitate measurement tests.

The performance of a true RMS measurement in the AC+DC range is a very useful option. The option to display three measurement values simultaneously allows users to conveniently measure DC voltages with overlapping AC voltage or direct currents with overlapping alternating currents. This function is useful for the development of LED lighting, for instance, which is typically controlled by means of PWM-regulated signals. A primary measurement value that is within the defined limit range is displayed on the color TTF display in green; a higher or lower value is displayed in red. The HMC8012 also offers an acoustic option.

Intended use was for low-power design -- this is not the meter for that. Ammeter has 14mV / mA burden voltage on 20mA range, that's a 280mV drop at full scale. Meter's "power" calculation is affected when volt meter null feature is used. Secondary measurement (DCI) does not auto scale. When it overflows it also blanks primary display too (leaving you completely deaf, dumb, and blind). It takes several button pushes to manually scale the secondary measurement, but doing so disables auto scale on the primary measurement... (but you can manually re-enable it.) Secondary measurement options are very limited -- e.g., would would like to see absolute V and delta-V (from ref) at the same time -- not an option. Same for differential current, power, etc. Auto-ranging ohm meter "hunts" for some semiconductor junctions (I tried using the ohmmeter to check diode polarity, meter kept flip-flopping between ranges displaying "OVERLOAD" and "----") IMO, this is not an $800 meter -- better firmware might fix most of these problems, though.
