Fluke reduces prices of Installation Testers
08 February 2010
Fluke has reduced the prices of all its Fluke 1650B Series of multifunction Installation Testers. With more features than the earlier 1650 Series, the Fluke 1650B testers ensure that fixed wiring is safe and correctly installed to meet the BS7671 17th Edition wiring regulations as well as IEC 60364 and HD 384. The Fluke 1652B/PKit Electricians Kit is also reduced in price.
The Fluke 1653B is the complete tester for virtually all electrical wiring installations, for domestic, commercial and industrial use. It is equipped with a built-in memory to store test results fast and easily on site: the data can be uploaded later to a computer for the preparation of professional reports. The 1652B is the ideal tester for the professional working in domestic and commercial installations. The Fluke 1651B is the everyday tester, ideal for domestic installations covering all the basic needs for testing the 17th Edition wiring regulations / Part P of the building regulations.
The Fluke 1652B/PKit Electricians Kit is a complete solution to testing and verifying domestic and commercial electrical installations. It comprises the Fluke 1652B; a Fluke T120 2-pole Tester, which features an LCD display and LED bargraph to indicate voltages from 12V to 690V AC/DC and a patented three-phase rotation detection system; and a Fluke SM200 Socket Tester, with 3 vivid bi-colour LEDs and an audible buzzer which indicate missing earth, live/earth reverse, live/neutral reverse, missing neutral or live faults.
The Fluke 1650B Series show two measurements at once on a dual display. This can show PEFC/PSC and loop impedance results in parallel negating the requirement to run the tests separately, more than halving the test time of other loop testers. The 1650B Series also features a high-current loop test which gives extremely fast measurements when testing in circuits where no RCDs are being used. All models offer both non trip and the high current test so the user can select depending on the application. In addition there is fast voltage measurement between L-N, L-PE and N-PE using the mains cord, with no need to change measurement connections.
For ease of use, a rotary dial clearly indicates which function is selected, and provides access to all functions in one place to avoid complex multi-level menus, so that even after a long period of non-use the Fluke 1650B remains intuitive to use. A large display with backlight uses clear symbols and has an exceptionally wide viewing angle for easy and safe readings. There is a PASS/FAIL indication for RCD test results, and a variable RCD current mode for customised settings. An Earth Volt Touchpad detects earth voltages raised above 50V to indicate potentially dangerous situations. A slim probe with test button supplied with the 1652B and 1653B enables initiation of a test without the need to access or reference to the front panel when probing hard to reach points.
The Fluke 1650B is compact, lightweight (less than 1.2 kg) and has a padded neck-strap to free testers’ hands for testing. It is supplied as standard with high quality fused test leads to comply with HSE Guidance note GS38. A durable hard case protects the instrument in tough field conditions. A Zero Adapter ensures easy, reliable and accurate test lead and mains cord compensation. The adapter can be used for all kinds of mains plugs and test accessories like probes and alligator clips.
