For electrical testing in high-hazard environments, new Fluke test tools give technicians more ways to work safely

F-190-204_01b_cSydney, February 10, 2011 – Technicians working on hazardous equipment and high-voltage circuits deserve every advantage to complete their electrical test and measurement jobs safely.

Fluke has introduced new test tools—a new family of Fluke clamp meters and a new four-channel hand-held oscilloscope—engineered to give electricians and maintenance technicians new ways to work safely and reduce their exposure to electrical shock.

Industrial and commercial electricians often work in 415 volt electrical environments that pack enormous transient surge potential—and pose a significant threat of arc flash and shock. The new Fluke test tools meet, and exceed, tough international standards for safe use in such environments. And some go even farther, by enabling technicians who must test live circuits to do their jobs at a distance from electrically hazardous installations.

The new Fluke 381, 376, 375 and 374 current clamps and iFlex™ current probes are rated for use in measurement category IV environments (CAT IV 600V, CAT III 1000 V) as defined by safety standards in the US, Canada and Europe.  The detachable display of the new Fluke 381 Clamp Meter enables technicians to see measurements remotely—up to 10 metres away from the equipment they are testing. They can even see readings when the test circuit is enclosed in an equipment cabinet.
