Fluke has introduced the new Fluke 1650B Series of multifunction Installation Testers to test and verify domestic, commercial and industrial electrical installations – the 1651B, 1652B and 1653B models. The 1650B Series builds on the rugged performance of the earlier 1650 Series, but it has been redesigned to make testing even more productive. The testers ensure that fixed wiring is safe and correctly installed to meet the latest BS7671 17th Edition wiring regulations as well as IEC 60364 and HD 384.
The Fluke 1650B Series show two measurements at once on a dual display. This can show PEFC/PSC and loop impedance results in parallel negating the requirement to run the tests separately, more than halving the test time of other loop testers. The 1650B Series also features an additional new high-current loop test which gives extremely fast measurements when testing in circuits where no RCDs are being used. All the 1650B Series offer both non trip and this new high current test so the user can select depending on the application. In addition there is fast voltage measurement between L-N, L-PE and N-PE using the mains cord, with no need to change measurement connections.
