Fluke, a provider of portable electronic test and measurement technology, recently introduced new test tools – a family of Fluke clamp meters and a four-channel handheld oscilloscope – engineered to give electricians and maintenance technicians new ways to work safely and reduce their exposure to electrical shock.
The Fluke 381, 376, 375 and 374 current clamps and iFlex current probes are rated for use in measurement category IV environments as defined by safety standards in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The detachable display of the 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, the company says.
The Fluke ScopeMeter 190 Series II handheld portable oscilloscopes are four-channel scopes designed for harsh industrial environments. They are rated as dust- and drip-proof, and safety rated for CAT III 1000 V / CAT IV 600 V environments.
