Fluke installation testers ready  for 17th Edition Wiring Regulations
The new 17th Edition of the wiring regulations are expected to be implemented from 1st June 2008. There are a significant number of changes and upgrades to the current 16th Edition regulations, including alignment to international standards. One change in the testing requirement within the 17th Edition is changes to insulation test limits for SELV and PELV circuits. It is therefore essential that installers ensure that the test equipment they are using, and which they intend to purchase, is ready for use with the new regulations. The Fluke 1650 Series of Multifunction Installation Testers are ready for the 17th edition – new purchases as well as those already in the field.
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.
