Fluke 6500-2 PAT InsituMarch 5, 2014Fluke Corporation introduces the Fluke 6200-2 and 6500-2 Portable Appliance Testers (PAT) with powerful auto-test capabilities and simplified controls, including one-touch test routines, that increase the number of tests users can performed per day without compromising results.

The Fluke 6500-2 can reduce total test time by nearly 50 per cent through the use of professional mode, dedicated keys for one–touch testing, auto-test capabilities and fast storage and transfer of test results through the new USB data ports.

The lightweight, rugged Fluke 6200-2 and 6500-2 perform all the tests required for Class I and Class II appliances and conform to the EN61010-1 safety standard. They feature one-touch testing with dedicated keys for each test and pre-set pass/fail levels to speed testing. The large display makes it easy to view test results and a separate IEC socket provides easy mains/extension lead testing. Users can also store and reuse common test sequences for consistent retesting of appliances.

The 6500-2 also features an integrated QWERTY keyboard for rapid data entry, backlit display, memory for backup storage and an additional USB port for data transfers to PCs. It also offers new test capabilities including:
* 250 V insulation
* RCD-protected appliances
* optional 110 V test functionality for verifying appliances at building sites.
