September 10, 2014 – Maintaining fluorescent lamps tends to be a trial-and-error process. Bulbs not lit? Climb the ladder and replace them. Still not lit? Go back up the ladder and replace the ballast. Still not lit? Climb the ladder one more time. It’s tedious, time-consuming and inefficient, plus any time workers climb ladders there are potential safety issues.
The Fluke 1000FLT Fluorescent Light Tester eliminates the guesswork of maintaining fluorescent lamps by performing all the essential tests on lamps in less than 30 seconds: lamp tester, ballast tester, non-contact voltage detector, pin continuity tester, and ballast discriminator. The 1000FLT eliminates trial, error and rework, and reduces the time maintenance teams spend fixing lights.
The point-and-shoot ballast discriminator in the1000FLT speeds the replacement of old magnetic ballasts with new energy-efficient electronic models by quickly identifying exactly what type of ballast is in the fixture before they climb the ladder. There is no need to remove the bulbs or to make contact with live circuitry. Simply point the 1000FLT fluorescent light tester at the glowing bulb and determine the ballast type. Read more ❯
