Test & Measurement
Fluke i2500-18 and i2500-10 iFlex current probes
By Anthony Capkun
Fluke Corp. has introduced new iFlex flexible current probes with the aim of making current measurement easier and more precise. The probes expand the measurement range of select Fluke meters to 2500AAC; the large coil allows users to reach around large or awkward-shaped conductors up to 6-in. in diameter, while the 0.3-in. profile allows the coil to reach between tightly-packed cables. A 6-ft cord makes it easier to see readings at a distance from the conductor. The 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 10-in. and 18-in. sizes.
