New Fluke i2500-18 and i2500-10 iFlex™ Current Probes Deliver Unprecedented Measurement Flexibility

Handle Large Conductors, Tight Spaces and High Amperage

EVERETT, WA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) - Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced new iFlex flexible current probes, designed to make current measurement easier, more convenient and more precise for electricians and industrial technicians.

The new Fluke iFlex flexible current probes expand the measurement range of select Fluke meters to 2500 A ac and give technicians the ultimate in measurement flexibility. The large coil allows users to reach around large or awkward-shaped conductors up to 6 inches in diameter, while the small 0.3-inch profile allows the coil to reach between tightly-packed cables and improves access in crowded spaces. A 6-foot cord makes it easier to see 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 10-inch and 18-inch sizes.

The iFlex current probe i2500-18 is included with the new Fluke 381 and Fluke 376 Clamp Meters. Both iFlex models -- the i2500-18 and the i2500-10 -- are compatible with Fluke 374 and Fluke 375 Clamp Meters. US list price for each iFlex probe model is $98.95.

The iFlex current probes are members of a new family of Fluke clamp meters designed to meet users' requirements for flexibility, safety and performance in the most challenging industrial conditions. This new Fluke family of clamp meters includes:

Fluke 381 Remote Display True-rms AC/DC Clamp Meter with iFlex -- The Fluke 381 is a full-featured clamp meter with an important extra: Users can remove the detachable wireless display for even more flexibility, convenience and safety. Now one technician can do jobs that used to require two. US list price is $498.95.

Fluke 376 True-rms AC/DC Clamp Meter with iFlex -- With the new Fluke 376 Clamp Meter, users will be ready for any measurement challenge. Designed for the toughest industrial environments, it measures current up to 2500 A ac and 1000 A dc and can troubleshoot even the noisiest motors and drives. US list price is $374.95.

Fluke 374 and 375 True-rms AC/DC Clamp Meters -- The new Fluke 374 and 375 clamp meters offer improved performance, perfect for many current measurement situations. With true-rms ac voltage and current measurements, the Fluke 374 and 375 can read up to 600 V and 600 A in both ac and dc modes and handle min/max, average and inrush recording. Both are compatible with the new iFlex flexible current probe (sold separately). US list price for the Fluke 375 is $299.95, for the Fluke 374, $259.95.

Fluke 373 True-rms AC Clamp Meter -- The new Fluke 373 clamp meter offers improved performance and maximum value for users requiring ac only current measurement. US list price is $179.95.

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 1000 V) as defined by safety regulators in the US, Canada and Europe. The Fluke 373 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.
