    I'm using a Fluke 45

    It has a Baud rate button , which you can switch from slow , med, or fast

    When testing relays, switches , rotary switches to check if there is any voltage change

    The Fast Baud rate is used when there is a fast voltage change or when switching a switch or relay fast

    But I found using the slow baud rate "captured" the fast voltage changes better, why is that?

    When do you use the Fast Baud rate?

    why does using the slow baud rate capture better voltage changes ?

    I don't think so. BAUD is a measure of data rate, and is only relevant to communications with a computer. Better read the manual.

    So the Baud rate button it not to measure fast voltage changes?

    That button is for BAUD when setting up the rear panel RS-232 interface, and you need to hit the shift button or something to activate that mode.

    Otherwise it's default (unshifted, direct) action is to set the reading RATE. Obviously the rate you take readings will affect your ability to see short changes.

    After this would you seriously expect the user to know what google was, let alone use it??
    Do any of the mods seriously think these are serious questions? or perhaps they are just done to wind people up?
    What is the chances of someone this stupid getting a job pushing brooms let alone a job in electronics?

    LG, why are you so easily wound up?
    Learn to walk away.

    So the Baud rate button does set the meters reading rate? for fast or short voltage changes?

    Or it is only used for something else?

    Did you or did you not read the manual to which BillB3857 even gave you a link to?
    How can you be so ignorant? Aren't you even a little bit ashamed of yourself?

    At this point I will step in. LG no more posting in this morons threads, enough is enough let it go. If AAC wants to let this person continue so be it.
    As for you Dexter.
    You have said in other places how many jobs you have had as a technician, and lets face it the number was very large.
    So you are either not reading replies or you are intentionally winding people up.
    To work in electronics and not no Baud rate refers to data is one thing, to actually assume it has something to do with how a meter reads voltage etc is just not believable.
    To have had any form of training and yet not have even looked at a data sheet shows you have no right to call yourself a technician.
    You come here and ask questions without ANY attempt to do research first.
    Why is that?
    You are given answers and yet often your following question leads me to think, you havnt even read the answer properly.
    WHO do you work for?
    No side stepping I want to know.
    As for the mods here, DO NOT BAN ME when you ban LG!!
    Ban him on his ID not IP! we use the same connection via my phone so ip is the same. You ban his IP and you ban mine at the same time.
    I dont post much but I do enjoy reading the forum

    Hello,

    Rate and BAUD are the two functions of the pushbutton:

    [​IMG]

    In normal mode it selects the reading speed:

    [​IMG]

    In 2nd function mode, the baudrate for the RS232 port can be set to tranfer data to a PC, with the speeds as given in the specs:

    [​IMG]

    The button has nothing to do with reading or checking rs232 signals.

    Why does multiple members keep saying it is and only for reading and checking RS232 signals

    THIS IS THE 2ND function mode

    THERE is a 1st function mode

    I think member on this forum are getting confused

    Because I'm talking about the 1st mode , normal mode

    The meters reading speed, like measuring voltages right?

    It sets the bit rate for the rs232 interface:


    Interesting however, if he was using 1st function, then the button was doing what he thought in the 1st place.

    Yes I'm talking about the MEASUREMENT RATE of the meters display

    The Baud rates button has 2 different modes

    But you didn't say measurement rate, you said BAUD rate.

    Then you should not call it baud rate button, but rate button. Then your original question would make much more sense.
