Thanks to HIOKI European sales subsidiary in Frankfurt and headquarters in Japan, I did receive a file of recent firmware for DT4282.

Speaking of software Firmware process this is totally automated as expected, but text this is in Japanese (HIOKI DMM Version up)
I did manage to get several pictures as proof of my update.

All DT4281 / DT4282 multimeter owners, they have the obligation to register they product at HIOKI website.
By doing so they become owners of MyHIOKI personal account, and due this account they get awareness if there is any firmware update for them.

Bloggers life this is different, product samples serial codes, most to all times they get rejected regarding product registration.

My older Firmware revision this was 1.02 therefore up to latest 1.12 dozens of changes has be made.

First change which I spotted and I do happily welcome, this is that when the meter gets to Power save mode ( APS ),  APS text this staying on screen and by pressing of any soft button the meter wake up.

Older Firmware behavior was to turn OFF the meter and LCD, and only chance to awake the meter was moving range switch to OFF position and turn it On again.
This was a terrible idea speaking of productivity, because if test leads were used for current measurements, they should be totally removed from the meter, because they was blocking safety mechanism this serving as aid against wrong insertion of test leads in voltage or current mode.

Therefore HIOKI it did solve most irritating problem by a firmware update!  8)
