Over the years many methods have been tried to contain messy cords. Most have failed.

Now a new Australian product – Clipaway – claims to provide an easy and convenient solution to the problem. Clipaway clips come in a variety of sizes to suit all types of cord (even rope) up to 12mm dia-meter.

They're available from Woolworths/Big W, BBC/Hardwarehouse and other leading retailers.

Apart from the usual voltage-current-resistance-diode ranges, the Fluke Model 17 and 19 DMMs offer several of the most-wanted features for the electronics technician such as Min/Max/Average Record that captures the lowest and highest readings for recording power supply drift, line voltage changes or circuit performance while parameters are being changed. The DMMs have a wide AC voltage input bandwidth of 100kHz for accurate measurement of audio, video, monitors, and switching power supplies.

They also feature autoranging, a frequency counter (0.5Hz-200kHz) and duty cycle measurement. Both meters are supplied with Fluke TL-19 test leads, a 9V battery and a User’s Manual.

The new DMMs are designed and manufactured to the latest safety standards of IEC 61010-1, 1000V Overvolt-age Category I, 600V Overvoltage Category II. The Fluke 17 and 19 have been submitted for independent testing and certification to CSA and UL standards.
