By Alyssa Dalton
March 19, 2014 – Fluke has introduced its 1623-2 and 1625-2 earth ground testers to help speed verification of reliable grounding of electrical equipment, solve power quality problems and lower the risk of shock to users, it says.
The new testers, according to Fluke, can save up to 50% of set up and tear down time compared to existing wire reels. They perform all four types of earth ground measurements: 3- and 4-pole fall-of-potential, 4-pole soil resistivity, selective testing, and stakeless testing. New accessories include heavy-duty stakes that can be hammered into hard ground, colour-coded wires, and a rugged carrying case.
