Fluke Corp. debuts the iFlex flexible current probes that improve measurement flexibility and offer expansion in the measurement range of select Fluke clamp meters to 2500A AC.

The size of the coil is designed to allow users to reach around large or awkward-shaped conductors up to 152.40mm in diameter, while the 7.62mm profile allows the coil to reach between tightly-packed cables and improves access in crowded spaces. A 1.83m cord eases the viewing of 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 iFlex current probes are available in 254mm and 457.20mm sizes.

The iFlex current probe i2500-18 is included with the Fluke 381 and Fluke 376 clamp meters. Both iFlex models are compatible with Fluke 375 and Fluke 374 clamp meters.

The Fluke 381 is a full-featured clamp meter which enables users to remove the detachable wireless display.

The Fluke 376 clamp meter measures current up to 2500A AC and 1000A DC and claims that it can troubleshoot even the noisiest motors and drives.

The Fluke 374 and 375 clamp meters provide true-rms AC voltage and current measurements and can read up to 600V and 600A in both AC and DC modes and handle min/max, average and inrush recording.

The Fluke 373 clamp meter is for users requiring AC only current measurement. It is rated CAT IV 300V, CAT III 600V. Category IV environments include overhead power lines, underground power lines and service entrance power, as well as all outdoor environments.

The Fluke 381, 376, 375, 374 and iFlex current probes are rated for safe use in hazard category IV (CAT IV) 600V environments (CAT IV 600V, CAT III 1000V) as defined by safety regulators in the US, Canada and Europe.
