Agilent 977A

The story goes that Fluke’s first adventure into Chinese manufacturing was the Fluke 17/19 models, intended for the Asia-Pacific market.  It’s hard to find good things said about this series.  Indeed they seem to be somewhat rare, supporting the idea that their lifetime was short.

    Hey Modemhead! I stumbled across this photo while searching for a spare 87 display… I saw your other photo showing that the 977 uses the Fluke 85 chip, so I fired up my 83-iii and the 977 display looks EXACTLY like an 83/85-iii! Hmm… I wonder if they’re the same part?
