Built for extreme operating conditions, the new DMM delivers the features and accuracy to quickly, safely troubleshoot most electrical problems
EVERETT, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In industrial settings, technicians and electricians sometimes work in extreme conditions to troubleshoot electrical systems. The new Fluke® 87V MAX True-rms Digital Multimeter is designed to work reliably in even the harshest industrial environments so technicians can take accurate measurements safely regardless of conditions. Built on the trusted features of the Fluke 87V, the 87V MAX is the most rugged DMM Fluke has ever made.
The 87V MAX has an IP67 rating making it fully waterproof and dustproof, and has been tested to withstand a four-meter (13 foot) drop. It has an extended operating temperature range of -15 °C to +55 °C (5 °F to 131 °F), as low as -40 °C for up to 20 minutes, and can operate in up-to-95 percent humidity. The Fluke 87V MAX also includes a removable holster that doubles as test lead storage and a test probe holder for one-handed operation.
“Service technicians work in harsh conditions to solve complex problems. Conditions might be hot, cold, dusty and sometimes very damp,” said Sean Silvey, Product Specialist at Fluke. “The 87V MAX will work in places that other meters won’t.”
In addition to being incredibly rugged, the 87V MAX features the same powerful set of measurement functions and accuracy as the 87V, including:
- True-rms ac voltage and current for accurate measurements on non-linear signals;
- Measurements up to 1000 V ac and dc;
- Measurements up to 10 A (20 A for 30 seconds);
- Frequency measurements to 200 kHz;
- A built-in temperature function to conveniently take temperature readings (using supplied thermocouple) without having to carry a separate instrument;
- Min/Max/Average recording, plus 250 μs Peak min-max to capture variations automatically;
- Unique function for accurate voltage and frequency measurements on variable frequency motor drives (VFDs) and other electrically noisy equipment.
The DMM features large display digits, a high-resolution 19,999 count display mode and a two-level bright white backlight for work in dark areas. The meter includes backlit keypad buttons for increased visibility. It also has twice the battery life — up-to-800 hours — as the original 87V.
The 87V MAX comes complete with TL175 test leads (Fluke’s premium retractable leads), AC175 alligator clips, and an 80BK-A type-K DMM temperature probe.
The 87V MAX is safety rated CAT IV 600V/CAT III 1000V. It offers limited lifetime warranty.
The 87V series of DMMs
The 87V MAX is one of five models in the 87V series of digital multimeters, allowing technicians and electricians to choose the right tool for their specific application. In addition to the new 87V MAX, the series includes the 87V MAX E2 Kit with carrying case, magnetic hanging strap, and modular test lead set; the 87V Industrial Multimeter; the 87V IMSK Kit which includes an i400 clamp meter; and the 87 E2 Kit with carrying case, magnetic hanging strap, and modular test lead set.
