The event will be held over four days at ExCeL London from 5-8 October 2011. Fluke is a Global Industry Partner (GIP) of WorldSkills International.
The Fluke 115 Digital Multimeter (DMM), the Fluke 9040 Rotation Meter and the Fluke 322 Clamp Meter have been selected for the participants to use at the Competition. Industrial Control involves electrical and automation installation, typically in industries such as electricity, water, oil and gas. It encompasses circuit design and modification, hardware and software functioning and fault finding. Measurement, installation, test commissioning and safety are also key aspects of industrial control. Technicians should be able to install cables, instruments and devices, as well as being able to problem solve in areas such as programmable logic and relay control.
The compact Fluke 115 DMM true-rms meter, with a CAT III 600V safety rating, is an ideal meter for a wide variety of electrical and electronic testing applications. It measures DC and AC voltages to 600V and captures MIN/MAX/AVG readings. The Fluke 115 also measures resistance, frequency and capacitance, and tests continuity.
The Fluke 9040 Phase Rotation Indicator is effective for measuring phase rotation in all areas where three phase supplies are used to feed motors, drives and electrical systems. The Fluke 9040 is a rotary field indicator and can provide clear indication of the 3 phase via an LCD display and the phase rotation direction to determine correct connections. It allows rapid determination of phase sequence and has a voltage (up to 700V) and frequency range suitable for commercial and industrial applications. It is powered from the circuit under test, so does not require a battery. The included test probes have a variable clamping range for safe contact, also in industrial sockets.
The Fluke 322 Clamp Meter is designed to verify the presence of load current, AC voltage and continuity of circuits, switches, fuses and contacts. It has a small form factor which fits easily into tight places, providing more flexibility when working in a cramped environment. The Fluke 322 measures AC current to 400A with 0.1A resolution, and 40A with 0.01A resolution. It measures voltages 600V AC/DC, with a resolution of 0.1V up to 400V. It also measures resistance and continuity and features Display Hold and automatic shut-off.
WorldSkills London 2011 is set to be the world's largest international skills competition with young people from across the globe competing to be the ‘best of the best’ in their chosen skill. Around 150,000 visitors are expected and they will see 1,000 competitors from over 50 countries/regions competing in 46 skill areas over four exciting days of competition. Over 100 colleges from across the UK will be showcasing their skills and talents at the event. Experts will also be on hand to share their knowledge and offer careers advice.
As a Global Industry Partner (GIP) of WorldSkills International since 2004, and a sponsor since 1999, Fluke Corporation uses WorldSkills as part of its international education programme. Working collectively with other GIPs, Fluke aims to develop best practices and standards globally across industries, while producing a mobile workforce with portable skills.
