Fluke has introduced a new family of Fluke clamp meters and a new four-channel hand-held oscilloscope — engineered to give electricians and maintenance technicians new ways to work safely and reduce their exposure to electrical shock. Fluke 381, 376, 375 and 374 current clamps and iFlex current probes are rated for use in measurement category IV environments (CAT IV 600V, CAT III 1000 V) as defined by safety standards in the US, Canada and Europe. The detachable display of the new Fluke 381 Clamp Meter enables technicians to see measurements remotely—up to 33 feet away from the equipment they are testing. They can even see readings when the test circuit is enclosed in an equipment cabinet. The Fluke ScopeMeter 190 Series II handheld portable oscilloscopes are four-channel scopes designed for harsh industrial environments and are safety rated for CAT III 1000 V/CAT IV 600 V environments.
