Current Probes Handle Large Conductors, Tight Spaces

Fluke Corporation has introduced new iFlex flexible current probes which expand the measurement range of select Fluke meters to 2500 A AC and give technicians exceptional measurement flexibility. The large coil allows users to reach around large or awkward-shaped conductors up to 6 inches in diameter, while the small 0.3-inch profile allows the coil to reach between tightly packed cables and improves access in crowded spaces. A 6-foot cord makes it easier to see readings at a distance from the conductor. The iFlex probes connect directly to the meter, displaying current measurements without error-prone scaling factors. In addition to AC current measurement, they also work with frequency, inrush, and min/max/avg functions. The current probes are available in 10-inch and 18-inch sizes.
