No powering down while Fluke 368, 369 FC takes leakage current measurements
By Renée Francoeur
September 2, 2016 – According to Fluke, its new 368 FC and 369 FC leakage current clamps help industrial electricians and maintenance technicians identify, document, record, and compare leakage current readings over time to help prevent problems before they happen and without shutting down equipment.
The rugged meters have large diameter jaws (40 mm for the 368 FC and 61 mm for the 369 FC) for work with oversize conductors. The clamp jaws are fully shielded and designed to capture very small leakage current signals (as low as 10 μA, according to Fluke) and minimize external electromagnetic interference. The true-rms meters are designed to measure complex signals, with the highest resolution of 1 µA and an upper measurement range of 60 amps.
The 368 FC and 369 FC are part of Fluke Connect—a system of more than 40 wireless test tools that communicate via the Fluke Connect app or Fluke Connect Assets software, a cloud-based solution.
