New electrical testers let electricians troubleshoot electrical systems safer, faster, and more efficiently
Everett, Wash., Sept. 25, 2017 – Troubleshooting electrical systems can be time-consuming and potentially dangerous because it requires access to metallic contact points. The new Fluke® T6 Electrical Testers with FieldSense Technology make troubleshooting safer and more efficient by allowing electricians to take simultaneous voltage and current measurements — not just detection — without test leads.
The T6 testers now make it possible to take reliable true-rms measurements in crowded junction boxes or along conductors with inaccessible end points, saving time, minimizing potential errors, and greatly reducing the possibility of arc flash.
With the Fluke T6-600 and T6-1000 testers, electricians can:
- Be safer: Measure voltage up to 1000V through the open fork without test leads or exposed conductors.
- Be faster: With no need to open panels or remove wire nuts, electricians can speed through troubleshooting.
- Be more efficient: Simultaneously measure and display voltage and current on the T6-1000. The T6-1000 also measures resistance up to 100.0 kΩ.
- Be everywhere: With the widest open fork in the industry, the T6 testers measure 4/0 wires up with current up to 200 A.
At the heart of the T6 testers is the new Fluke FieldSense Technology, that enables the testers to give simultaneous, reliable voltage and current readings, not just simple go/no-go voltage detection.
The rugged testers are 1000 V CAT III, 600 V CAT IV safety rated (600V CAT III for the T6-600 model) and feature an easy to read display with a backlight.
