Until 31 December 2019, Fluke UK is offering two money-saving 1660 series multifunction installation tester kits.
The Fluke 1664 UK-TPL kit comprises a 1664 FC multifunction installation tester with free Fluke DMS data management software and a free Fluke T150 two-pole voltage and continuity tester. The Fluke 1663 UK-TPL kit comprises a 1663 with free Fluke DMS data management software and a free Fluke T130 voltage and continuity tester. The most recent cable design for the two-pole range of testers is subjected to cycling through 150 degrees in each direction, more than three times the required bending angle.
According to Fluke, the 1664 is the only installation tester on the market that helps prevent damage to appliances that may be inadvertently connected to the system under test, and it also makes it easy to share test results over a smartphone using Fluke Connect. The 1664 FC features an auto test function that does five required installation tests in one sequence, ensuring compliance with BS7671 17th Edition Wiring Regulations.
Fluke DMS data management software uses the captured results from the Fluke 1663 or 1664 for data recording, offers easy-to-use administration and reporting and provides printing of test reports. The Fluke T150 and T130 are members of a family of two-pole testers offering fast test results, while built with CAT IV 600V, CAT III 690V safety ratings. Built with state-of-the-art measurement and safety technology, they feature large, easy-to-use buttons, bright backlights, a built-in torch, and clear audible and physical indicators designed for any work situation. They offer four ways to indicate AC/DC voltage: a clear, instantly visible LED indicator, a bright digital display of the measurement value, an audible continuity test (with on/off setting), and vibration to provide tactile feedback when there is voltage present. The T150 also measures resistance.
The Fluke 1660 series of multifunction installation testers put more power in users’ hands by quickly and efficiently testing fixed installations to BS7671 17th Edition Wiring Regulations. They are designed to verify insulation resistance, loop impedance, resistance of the earth connect, resistance to earth, RCD performance in TT and TN systems, phase sequence, and loop/line impedance and RCD tests in IT systems.
The Fluke 1664 FC features the Insulation PreTest function that detects if an appliance is connected to the system under test and will stop the test while also providing a visual warning. Insulation PreTest helps avoid accidental and costly damage to peripheral equipment. The Auto Test function, that does five required installation tests in one sequence, reduces the number of manual connections, decreases the possibility of making errors, and reduces test time by up to 40% compared to previous Fluke models.
The wireless 1664 FC model is part of Fluke Connect. Measurements from the tester can be wirelessly transmitted to the Fluke Connect app on smartphones or tablets and automatically uploaded to FlukeCloud Storage, eliminating transcription errors. Technicians can collaborate in real-time with other colleagues with ShareLive video calls. Measurements from the 1664 FC can be combined with measurement data from multiple Fluke Connect test tools to create and share comprehensive reports from the job site via email.
