Installation tester puts more power in users hands

New products – including the very latest electrical-testing equipment range – from leading electrical test and measurement manufacturer Fluke have been added to the RS Components portfolio. Highlighted are the Fluke 1660 Series Multifunction Installation Testers. The new 1660 Series puts more power in users’ hands by quickly and efficiently testing to major local fixed wiring installation regulations.

The top of the range 1664FC model also makes it easy to share test results over a smartphone using Fluke Connect.

In addition, the 1664FC features the patented 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, protecting appliances that may be inadvertently connected to the system under test.

The new Fluke 1660 Series is 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.

Also new to the range is the 1587 FC Insulation multimeter kit, a package of components that has been designed to offer electricians essential testing equipment in a great value and versatile bundle. Included in the bundle are three key tools: a Fluke 1587 FC multimeter, a Fluke i400 current clamp and a Fluke PRV240 proving unit.

To complement these and other products, RS also supplies a comprehensive range of Fluke test leads and accessories.

Finally, the Fluke 120B Series industrial ScopeMeter offers a rugged oscilloscope solution for industrial electrical and electro-mechanical equipment troubleshooting and maintenance applications.

Comprising an oscilloscope, a multimeter and a high-speed recorder in one instrument, operators can use the device to display waveforms with Connect-and-View trigger and setup technology.

They can also view related numerical measurements using Fluke IntellaSet technology.

First introduced to the RS range in June 2016, Fluke and RS have now come together to offer customers exclusive kits, which include the Scopemeter, plus free FlukeView for Windows software and carry case.
