Fluke Corp. Launches a family of Fluke clamp meters and a new four-channel hand-held oscilloscope that reduce exposure to electrical shock, providing engineers, electricians and maintenance technicians with safer ways to work.

Industrial and commercial electricians often work in 480V electrical environments that pack enormous transient surge potential that pose a significant threat of arc flash and shock. The Fluke test tools meet and exceed international standards for safe use in such environments. They also enable live circuits to be tested at a distance from the 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 1000V) 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 10meters away from the equipment they are testing. They can even see readings when the test circuit is enclosed in an equipment cabinet.

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 are safety rated for CAT III 1000 V / CAT IV 600 V environments.

All members of the new Fluke clamp meter family have a CAT IV rating. They are designed to provide flexibility, performance and safety in the most challenging industrial conditions. The four-channel Fluke ScopeMeter 190 Series II portable oscilloscope is also designed to tough it out on the shop floor, while providing CAT IV-600 V protection.
