The Fluke 1650 Series are ideally suited for all aspects of 17th Edition installation testing. They are extremely easy to operate, feature a large backlit display with a wide viewing angle, have a unique ergonomic design, and a padded neck-strap to free the hands of the operator.
The Fluke 1650 Series comprises three models. The Fluke 1651 meets all the requirements of Part P. It performs tests of residual current activated devices (RCDs), in addition to the primary tests of voltage, frequency, continuity, insulation resistance, loop impedance, PSC and PFC tests; it uses a unique and patented advanced loop measurement technology to prevent electronic and passive type RCDs from tripping during earth-loop testing, whilst also giving highly consistent and repeatable results. In addition to these tests, the Fluke 1652 and 1653 can perform time-saving automatic trip time and tripping current level (ramp) tests of residual current activated devices (RCDs) – both DC-sensitive and delayed-response types. The advanced capabilities of the 1653 also enable storage of results, which can be uploaded later to a PC for software analysis, and measurement of earth resistance and phase sequence.
