Fluke 117 Electrician’s Multimeter
Fluke has announced a new family of digital multimeters, including the Fluke 117 Electrician’s Multimeter with non-contact voltage detection and the Fluke 116 HVAC Multimeter with temperature and microamps capability. The family comprises four true-rms meters, each designed to meet the requirements of specific application areas.
The Fluke 117 Electrician’s Multimeter is suited for use in commercial settings such as hospitals and schools. The meter includes integrated VoltAlert non-contact voltage detection, a technology designed to quickly sense the presence of ac voltage—eliminating the need to carry another tool—and to determine proper grounding with a visual indicator. It also features Auto-V automatic volts detection, which eliminates guesswork by automatically determining AC/DC voltage and a new low-impedance input function, which helps prevent false readings due to ghost voltage.
The Fluke 116 HVAC Multimeter has a built-in thermometer and microamps measurement capability, functionality designed to help professionals quickly troubleshoot problems with HVAC equipment and flame sensors. The meter includes the LoZ function and other features for performing a wide range of tests such as measuring superheat and subcooling, troubleshooting the defrost control on a heat pump, and taking temperature surveys.
For a complete solution, the Fluke 117 and 116 are available in combo kits. The Fluke 117/322 Electrician’s Combo Kit includes the following in a soft carrying case: Fluke 117 Electrician’s Multimeter, Fluke 322 Clamp Meter, ToolPak meter hanger, and test leads. The Fluke 116/62 HVAC Technician’s Combo Kit includes the Fluke 116 HVAC Multimeter, Fluke 62 Mini Infrared Thermometer, Fluke 80AK Thermocouple Adapter, Fluke 80BK Integrated Temperature Probe, ToolPak Meter Hanger, hook-and-loop fastener pipe clamp thermocouple and test leads—all in a soft carrying case.
Also available is the Fluke 115 Multimeter for field service technicians and the Fluke 114 Multimeter for electrical troubleshooting. All four models are Cat-III 600V safety rated and feature large white LED backlit displays and compact design for one-handed operation.
