Instek GDM-8342 5 Digit USB Multimeter with GPIB

Includes a standard three year warranty

  GW INSTEK rolls out the new generation Dual Measurement Multimeter the GDM-834x series, which has two models -GDM-8341 and GDM 8342. Its exceptional features include 50,000 counts, VFD dual-display, 0.02% basic DC voltage accuracy and a USB protocol connector to provide users with measurement precision, lucid data observation, and the convenience to connect with the personal computer.    The GDM-834x series not only supports the fundamental measurement items provided by general multimeters, but also equips with capacitance and temperature measurement functions. Furthermore, the GDM-834x series also provides many auxiliary functions to meet the measurement requirements for manufacturing process tests, educational experiments and testing facilities.    With respect to storing and retrieving data, the GDM-834x series has two methods to offer: first, the USB flash drive storage function --- operating alone without connecting with a computer; second, USB interface (virtual COM port) and optional GPIB interface (must be installed in factory) for automatic measurement system users to conveniently save and retrieve data.

  The Instek GDM-834x series provides various measurement items and functionalities compared with that of the products of same category. There are twelve major measurement items of this series including AC voltage/current, DC voltage/current, AC+DC voltage/current, two-wired resistance, capacitance, Frequency/ period, diode and continuity beeper test. Temperature measurement is an optional function for GDM-8342. Many auxiliary functions, such as maximum/minimum values, reading hold, relative values, dB, dBm, algorithms (MX+B, 1/X, Ref%) and comparison, are designed to reinforce the major measurement items to satisfy users¿ daily working requirements.


  • 50,000 counts, VFD display
  • Dual measurement/Dual display
  • Selectable measurement speeds, the maximum: 40 Readings/s for DCV
  • The basic precision of DC voltage: 0.02% 
  • Auto/manual Ranging 
  • True RMS (AC,AC+DC) measurements
  • 11 different measurement functions
  • Max./Min., REL, MX+B, 1/X, Ref%, Compare, Hold, dB, dBm
  • Standard USB device interface to connect with a computer
  • Temperature measurement function (GDM-8342 only)
  • USB storage for Data collection (GDM-8342 only)
  • Optional GPIB (factory install for GDM-8342)

Convenient USB flash drive storage function

  The major distinction between GDM-8342 and products in the same category is that GDM-8342 provides USB flash drive storage function, which allows users to conveniently save data into a USB flash drive through a simple and proper setting. This unique function, different from other digital multimeters which must first save data into its own internal memory then transfer out the file, or connect multimeters with a computer to retrieve data, not only saves operational time but also cuts down the cost and time of developing programs.
