The Fluke 375 offers high performance features and ease of use. Features a VFD low pass filter for accurate motor drive measurements. The 375 offers most of the features of the Fluke 376, including compatibility with the iFlex flexible current probe, but unlike the 376, it does not include the iFlex® probe in the housing. You can measure AC and DC current up to 600A and voltage up to 1000V with the fixed jaw clamp. Or connect an optional iFlex® flexible current probe to extend your measurement range to 2500 A AC. The iFlex probe's large diameter and flexible design make it easy to measure around large conductors in tight spaces or access individual wires. With true-rms AC voltage and current measurements, the 375 lets you accurately troubleshoot nonlinear signals. And you can record and measure trends to identify intermittents while performing other tasks.

The 322 has been great for the seven years I've had it, but it doesn't read a high enough resistance to test 10k thermistors, so I always carried a second meter in my truck specifically to read resistance. I figured a 325 would get me down to just a meter, because it does everything my 322 does with the addition of up to 40k ohm resistance capability (temperature readings are also a plus, but not part of the reason why I chose this model). The 325 works as expected to measure voltage, resistance, frequency, direct current, and sometimes alternating current (more on this below). I can't confirm the temperature readings, as I've never found two perfectly matching temperature sensors, but I don't trust this meter as much as I do the Fieldpiece and Amprobe on my microphone, mainly due to the cheesy appearance of the thermistor wire. I have one big complaint and several small complaints about this meter. Miners are annoying but livable. I'll start with these: 1) TL75 cables are excessively stiff at room temperature. The cables that come with my 322 and the ones I've used on other brand meters are reasonably flexible and get better with time. Six months later, I still have to unroll them like a meter. 2) The box is too small if you keep the wires with the multimeter, and don't even think about leaving the wires connected if you want to close the box! 3) The button could be a little tighter. It is often turned on by wrapping the wires around it (see point 1). The main problem I have with this meter is with the AC power. I quickly found discrepancies between the readings from the current transducers and those from this meter when checking the VFDs. The numbers were so far off that I replaced the current transducers thinking they were defective, and even returned my first 325 to buy one directly from Fluke, thinking I had a defective or counterfeit product. It took me a couple of times before I contacted Fluke about the problem. It has been found that "True RMS" measurements will not line up with conventional measurements when dealing with non-linear loads such as VFD outputs. True RMS will also not agree with motor nameplates. Basically I've been told that this meter is "too" accurate so its readings aren't usable, which doesn't make much sense. I compare it to people who use "high level" words at the risk of hindering communication with 90% of people; you are somehow superior (great), but you missed the purpose of verbal language, which is to communicate with other people. I would have preferred a meter that measures like my 322 but with the addition of a higher resistance. I thought that would be the ticket, but I always carry two meters.

Buy Facebook Comments Female & Male - Famous Follower Rated 2 out of 5 by sirotz from Good meter, dumb limit on capacitance Fluke has always made top-notch products. Until now, Fluke was a general recommendation for everyone. It's a great counter, but it has a strange limit on capacity. It won't test anything below 10uf. Which is common in small motors and HVAC equipment. To be fair, it's listed in the specs, but how many people would look at the specs for the capacitor configuration? I guess most would see that you make capacitors and call it a day. I found out all of this the hard way when I went to test a capacitor thinking I had a bad capacitor. There were none. It costs me time, effort and money. Rated 4 out of 5 by Ken1 from Works well for my application - battery drain The 373 worked well for my application. I took it to my lab for a demo and when I turned it on and nothing. I went to change the batteries and the Energizer Industrials leaked. The battery terminals are damaged but do not reach the main board. I even offered to buy back the whole tenderloin, again not offered. Rated 5 out of 5 by FreePower for solid Fluke quality. I have used several multimeters in my life and have had my Fluke 373 for four years and it still performs well despite regular use and, I must admit, a fair amount of abuse. It's worth it, especially when you consider that it includes capacitance testing and clamp meter functionality, and of course the Fluke quality and durability. Rated 2 out of 5 by Boring from Could be better Why is it $100 more just to get capacity below 10 and no min/max? Again, you have to pay too much for the simpler features. I bought you a 374 just so I could do this! Rated 4 out of 5 by Feancisco from Reliable I bought a 374 meter just so I could read DC amps. That was the only reason, however now I use it all the time. The only drawback is that it is one of the older models and still comes at a high price for an "older model meter". Also, the battery doesn't last as long as other Fluke meters I have. Rated 5 out of 5 by GFAOPS from Wastewater Tech I have the 373 model and I LOVE IT! I use it while running the pumps on my weekly rounds. This small step has helped me save money for my clients and work for myself. Now I can see when the pump is working harder and fix the problem before it burns out. Rated 5 out of 5 by Electrical1 from The best meter for the money. I bought this meter about a year ago. Very happy with it. Perfect for most situations that require an accurate measurement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mr. Bruce of Great Meter, test leads suck in cold weather! I have bought a number of meters over the last 30 years and these cables have to be the worst with a new meter. Rated 5 out of 5 by EricB from Better Than Old, I had a UEI multimeter before this one (pretty much the same features, but after years of use I was starting to have trouble with some settings). Rated 4 out of 5 by Laurie from Good instrument, lame manual Basic functionality is as described. However, the "manual" is incomprehensible. Images don't really work for me. Rated 4 out of 5 by Captain Voltage from Excellent meter for the serious electrician. Rated 5 out of 5 by Mitch from 325 True RMS Clamp Meter Excellent meter! I bought the first one through Amazon. It was a cheap Chinese fake that I returned. I went to Fluke and bought the real thing! Rated 1 out of 5 by Menon from Poor quality and support I have this meter (out of warranty). The battery terminals lost their spring action and the contacts loosened. Rated 5 out of 5 by The Doctor of Features and Reliability Always preferred Flukes because of its reputation. Rated 3 out of 5 by jtaborsky from Slightly Disappointed Warning, this is going to be a long read. Basically, I make a living doing electrical checks, mostly HVAC/temperature checks. We use many thermistors, current transducers, PLCs, pressure transducers, and other devices to control air handlers, pumps, and fans. I had this meter for about six months. I bought this to replace the Fluke 322 in my tool bag for work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScatPack392 from Useful Tool Very useful for troubleshooting 5-phase motors. Rated 5 out of 381 by Mrs. Fixit for My Most Prized Possession I love my Fluke 381 more than my own kids (just kidding, I don't have kids). I use it daily in my work on boats, both AC and DC. I never doubt the readings, and the remote display makes me the best technician on the dock. It's often borrowed because it's awesome. I can crank the starter or alternator in the engine room and take the remote display to the helm (except on very large boats). What normally requires two technicians, I can accomplish by myself with my Fluke 5. My Fluke should have its own salary. My only complaint is that I really wish the iFlex had DC amps. And I wish it was a little smaller. Unlike other reviewers, I must be lucky because I don't think battery drain is a bad thing. Rated 5 out of 5 by AC Corbin from another great product from Fluke I really like using this clamp meter. I am in the industrial field and use the iflex to calibrate compressors. Rated 5 out of 5 by Little Mikey from Better than having an apprentice! Much easier than yelling measurements at each other across the room. No need to tie another guy down to watch the meter while you make changes. You no longer have to go back and forth to check your measurements. Wireless display has been invaluable in the workplace and at home. It's not just the convenience, but also the safety factor, especially when working on suspect circuits. Rated 5 out of 381 by Jerry KJS of Great Meter. I have several Fluke meters. This new XNUMX gauge is very safe to use, especially around bus bars. I now use this meter for all my electrical tests. The remote function is a nice feature.

Fluke's customers are technicians, engineers, electricians and metrologists who install, troubleshoot and manage industrial, electrical and electronic equipment and calibration processes.

A clamp meter is an electrical test tool that combines a basic digital multimeter with a current sensor. The clamps measure the current. The probes measure the voltage. Having a hinged clamp built into an electric meter allows technicians to clamp the clamps around a wire, cable or other conductor at any point in an electrical system and then measure the current in this circuit without disconnecting/de-energizing it. Beneath their plastic trim, the hard jaws are made of ferrite and are designed to detect, focus, and measure the magnetic field generated by current as it flows through a conductor. 2. Tactile barrier (to protect fingers from bumps). 3. Hold Button - Freezes the display reading. Playback is canceled when the button is pressed a second time. 4. Dial (also known as rotary switch). 7. Min Max Button - When first pressed, the display shows the maximum input. On subsequent presses, the minimum and average entries are displayed. It works in current, voltage and frequency modes. 8. Break-in button. 9. Zero Button (Yellow) – Removes DC offset from DC current measurements. It also serves as a dial shift button to select the yellow functions scattered around the dial. 10. Jaw release lever. 11Alignment Marks – To meet accuracy specifications, a conductor must be aligned with these marks. 12. Common input socket. 13. Volts/Ohms input jack. 14. Input for flexible current probe. Originally created as a single-use test tool, modern clamp meters offer more measurement capabilities, higher accuracy, and in some cases, specialized measurement capabilities. Current clamp meters include most of the basic functions of a digital multimeter (DMM), such as the ability to measure voltage, continuity, and resistance. Security. Clamp meters allow electricians to bypass the traditional method of cutting a wire and inserting a multimeter's test leads into the circuit to make an online current measurement. The jaws of a clamp meter do not need to touch a conductor during a measurement. Convenience. During a measurement, it is not necessary to break the current-carrying circuit, which greatly improves efficiency. Clamp meters are preferred for measuring high levels of current. Digital multimeters cannot measure 10A of current for more than 30 seconds without risking damaging the multimeter.

A clamp meter is a great tool for finding a current value or amperage reading while working with AC electrical circuits. It's not magic, and learning to use it safely and effectively is relatively easy. Here is a brief explanation of what is happening. These devices provide a quick way to read the current flowing through an electrical conductor, from a few amps to thousands, without having to physically touch it. The reading is taken by induction, using the same basic principle that applies in transformers, where an alternating voltage is applied to a primary winding to create a magnetic force field around a ferrite core in the center of the transformer, which at in turn is induced. in the wound secondary winding. Current transformers can "step down" the secondary current level by thousands of amps to standard output. The loop relationship between the primary and secondary windings produces a secondary AC output that is inversely proportional to the current measured in the primary winding. The resulting reduced output allows the tester to monitor current flow through the AC power line, factoring the value to obtain an accurate reading on the meter dial or digital display. Working with live cables: safety first! Before using the meter, the outer casing should be checked for damage or missing parts. It should not be used in these events or if the leads have damaged insulation or exposed metal. Industrial grade safety gloves should be worn when using the clamp meter. When using the clamp meter to measure with the jaws, both probes must be removed from the meter. Special precautions must be taken when handling voltages above 60 VDC or 30 volts AC RMS to increase the risk of shock. It is very important to remember that in order to take measurements with a clamp meter, the leads involved must be live, so special care must be taken when handling or moving the leads with insulated tools only if there is not enough space to easily coil them. jaw around it. Clamp meters should always be used to take measurements on well-insulated conductors, but never on bare live wires! Circuits should always be disconnected from their source and high voltage capacitors should be discharged before testing resistance, continuity, or diodes. The connection between the multimeter leads and the circuit under test must be removed and the multimeter turned off before opening the case. The Meter should never be used or stored in environments with excessive heat, humidity, or exposure to magnetic fields. The meter's batteries and battery indicator should be checked before taking it to the field. A weak battery can cause false readings. When measuring current flow, always clamp around a single conductor. If both wires are tight, each current flow going in the opposite direction will cancel the other. If the reading appears to be incorrect, the function switch selection should be checked first, and the AC current should be a regular sine wave with no spikes, not square waves. On AC/DC meters, the "zero" function should be used to remove the DC offset from the measurement for better accuracy. The meter should be turned off when not in use and the batteries removed when stored for a long period of time. Steps 1-10 on how to measure AC current using the clamps. Since analog clamp meters are not widely used anymore, this procedure will describe the operation of digital type clamp meters. It is also obvious that the biggest difference between the different models of meters lies in the clamps and the functions of which vary according to the efficiency. 1.1 – Remove the probes or cables from the meter. 1.3 – If the meter has a DC function, turn the dial to AC or DC amps. 1.4 – The DC setting must be set to the "zero" function when measuring DC current. 1.5 – Set the measurement range to the highest value on the scale. 1. 6 – Open the jaws with the release lever and place it around one of the two conductors through which the current is to be measured. 1.7 – Release the lever to close the jaws loop closing the two halves of the core together generating the magnetic field. 1.8 – The conductor must be aligned between the alignment marks of the jaws. If the clamp meter does not have alignment marks, the conductor must be centered within the loop formed by the jaws. 1.9 – The displayed result is alternating current. However, anytime the readings seem inaccurate, check what range the meter is set to, first of all. 1.10 – If the result is too small for a correct display, a makeshift jumper wire can be used to increase the turns of the primary winding.

What is the clamp meter? A clamp meter is a safe, convenient, and efficient way to measure current without having to use test leads. Since current flow through a conductor causes a magnetic field, the AC DC Clamp Meter can detect this field and provide a corresponding current reading (in Amps or Amps). Digital clamp meters do not interrupt current flow, allowing the technician to take the measurement quickly and safely. Why True RMS clamps? A true-rms clamp meter more accurately measures AC (alternating current) signals. When measuring distorted or non-periodic AC waveforms, True RMS meters are essential. Standard meters, without True RMS, average AC measurements and are therefore not as accurate for AC. Built-in infrared thermometer for fast and safe non-contact temperature measurements. Quickly find hot spots! What are the characteristics of the Triplett clamp meter? Wide range of compact and easy to use clamp meters. It comes with an LCD screen and a call function that captures the surge instantly when the equipment is turned on. Delivers accurate outputs even in noisy environments with non-periodic sinusoidal AC waveforms. It offers the best clamp meters in miniature size and they are used to measure alternating and direct current around 400 amps. What are the applications of True RMS clamp meters? Electrical services personnel for installation, maintenance and diagnosis. Triplett is the market leader in multifunction clamp meters. In the presence of high current flow, the need to measure volts, ohms, temperature, and frequency is imperative. Multi-function clamp meters provide a value-added bonus for technicians, field engineers and contractors. What is the meaning of IR thermometer? In areas where there are conductors carrying high current, safety is of paramount importance. With an IR thermometer built into the clamp meter, the technician can quickly and safely search for "hot spots" in panels, ducts and walls.
