Fluke’s new T6-1000 PRO Electrical Tester
Fluke has their new Fluke T6-1000 PRO True-RMS Electrical Tester. The Fluke T6-1000 PRO measures voltage up to 1000V AC and current up to 200A AC, all through the open fork and without test lead contact to live voltage. Users connect the black lead to the ground with the included heavy-duty alligator clip, slide the wire into the open fork and can see both voltage and current at the same time. The T6-1000 PRO works with most wires up to AWG 4/0 (120 mm2), carrying as much as 200A and 1000V AC. The Fluke T6-1000 PRO can even be used with gloves. The Fluke T6-1000 PRO will change how you do your job.
The Fluke T6-1000 PRO allows electricians to test in impossible places. Instead of pulling wire nuts, users just slide the open jaw over a single conductor. It’s much faster and safer than working to find a metallic contact point. Plus, voltage and current measurements can be made at the same time. The Fluke T6-1000 PRO measures and displays both voltage and current at the same time, simply by sliding the open jaw over the conductor.
The Fluke T6-1000 PRO is equipped with Fluke FieldSense technology, which is a proprietary method of measuring the actual voltage value without making live electrical contact. Unlike other non-contact voltage testers and detectors, the Fluke T6-1000 PRO uses FieldSense technology to provide an actual voltage measurement. Users get measurements that are more reliable and more accurate than existing go/no-go testers.
Not having to probe live conductors also makes jobs safer. Since there is no need to make electrical contact, the chance of human contact with an energized wire is greatly reduced. This also reduces the chance of making contact with the wrong conductor, which can produce unexpected results.
The Fluke T6-1000 PRO is specially designed for electricians working in potentially dangerous environments. Since users will almost always be wearing gloves or other PPE, the Fluke T6-1000 PRO is designed to use an external ground clip 100% of the time. In addition, the area where FieldSense technology measures voltage is extended further down the open fork. This means getting consistent, accurate voltage and current measurements without touching a live wire are easier than ever before.
