  TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Adds Wireless Connectivity to Clamp Meters

                   Solution Includes Innovative Mobile Apps

Business Wire

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- November 30, 2012

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the addition of wireless
connectivity to its U1210 Series clamp meter. It also added new capabilities,
including voice output and remote hosting, to the Mobile Meter and Mobile
Logger applications that support the company’s wireless connectivity solution
for handheld digital multimeters and clamp meters.

To enable wireless connectivity, the Agilent U1210A Series clamp meter is now
compatible with the optional Agilent U1177A IR-to-Bluetooth® adapter. With a
range of up to 10 meters, this capability enables measurements of large
currents at a safe distance. It also eliminates the need to travel back and
forth to electrical distribution rooms to check measurement results.

“When working around high-voltage machinery or electrical panels, customers
seek a solution that allows them to have full concentration on the measurement
task,” said Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Basic
Instruments Division.

To enhance safety during the probing of high-voltage circuits, the Mobile
Meter and Mobile Logging apps both include a “voice out” capability. This
feature provides an audible output of DMM readings through the text-to-speech
engine in the Android device, and the voice can be directed to the device’s
speaker or a Bluetooth^® headset.

The Mobile Meter application supports data monitoring over longer distances
with a remote-hosting mode. This allows the user to monitor measurements
through a Web browser running on a PC or tablet within the same network. It
also lets them share measurement data with coworkers in other locations.

Agilent’s wireless remote connectivity solution now supports a total of 15
handheld models in the U1200 Series of handheld DMMs and clamp meters. The
applications run on most Android-based smartphones or tablets as well as
Microsoft Windows^®-based PCs.

U.S. Pricing and Availability

The enhanced apps are available now as free downloads from the Android Market
and the Agilent website. The free PC-based data-logging application is
available for download from the Agilent website.
