Posted by at 4:31 pm on May 2, 2011

Redfish Instruments will be previewing their new iOS compatible product, the iDVM Digital Multimeter at the Embedded Systems Conference on May 3 – 5. The iDVM multimeter wirelessly connects to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch via an ad hoc wireless network allowing users to acquire, visualize, and share electrical measurement data on their Apple devices. The iDVM app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store.

According to Patrick O’Hara, president and CEO of the company, “The unique pairing of the iPhone or iPad with a digital multimeter provides a user experience that is truly revolutionary. Not since the advent of the LCD has the digital multimeter been so substantially enhanced.” Regarding the nature of the market opportunity, Mr. O’Hara further commented, “The iPhone and iPad provide a known user interface that permits customers to interact with electronic test and measurement tools that was not possible prior to this post-pc era. We sincerely believe that our new iDVM voltmeter is the first of many new uses for this tremendous interface, and we’re excited to be an early pioneer.”

Traditionally, multimeters have not provided an easy method of exporting or saving data. The iDVM permits a user to log data over an extended period of time using the iPhone or the iPad as the storage device. For example, a service engineer can use the iDVM to collect data and store it in a report for submission to his/her client, or keep the data on the voltmeter for their own records. Using the GeoTag feature of the iPhone or iPad, the service engineer can even identify his/her location as part of the data. The iDVM is built in the USA using all USA-made parts, and uses rechargeable batteries.

The iDVM was designed for a wide range of users—from an automotive technician, to an advanced embedded systems engineer, to an electrical contractor. The voltmeter will have utility in many industries including: automotive, electrical and building contracting, field service, and advanced design engineering.
