Fluke multimeters, everyone has heard about them. But not everyone knows why it is the best, in this article we will explain to you why Fluke is the best brand out there. We will discuss the following topics: Why is the brand Fluke safer than other brands, the price/quality of the brand and different types of Fluke multimeters.
Fluke and their safety
Fluke multimeters are the best meters out there, one of the biggest marketing points is their safety. Multimeters have different categories regarding to safety. These categories are referred to with the term CAT. There are CAT I, CAT II, CAT III and cat IV multimeters available. How higher the CAT value the more it can measure before breaking down.
We will show you an example of a Fluke multimeter compared to another cheaper brand. If we look at some industrial workers, for example an engineer. Engineers will use a multimeter on a daily basis, and they come across high voltage cables and machines. When you are going to measure a high voltage cable and you use a cheap multimeter brand with the category CAT I or CAT II the device can explode in your hands. This is simply because the multimeter is not built for that high voltage and will explode from the inside out immediately. A Fluke multimeter will never explode, they are all made of the category CAT III or CAT IV. This means that the meter will tell you that the voltage is to high, and it will shut itself off. This way you will never be in danger.
Different types of Fluke multimeters
Every brand has their own different models, that is the same with Fluke. There are different types of meters and different types of models. They have a very big assortiment so we will only discuss the best multimeter otherwise it will take way to long.
Fluke 87V Digital Multimeter
This is currently the best Fluke multimeter out there. This is because of its price compared to the features it contains. The Fluke 87V is very accurate, that means that it will give you the same result every time you measure. There are some multimeters of cheaper brands that will give you different results; this can be very frustrating if you have to determine if something has broken down or not. But gladly this meter has a very high accuracy.
The ranging of the Fluke 87V adjusts itself to the best settings for the current situation. This is a huge benefit because a little mistake with manually configuring the multimeter and the measurement can contain an error what can lead to huge errors or dangerous situations. The Fluke 87V handles it all by itself.
Calculating speed is also a very important feature on a meter. If you are measuring an object and the voltage will change occasionally, you want to see that. Most of the cheaper meters will not be able to handle the changing speed of the electricity, but the Fluke 87V can!
The price/quality of Fluke multimeters
First we can just say that the ratio of the price and the quality is very good. Yes, you pay a little more compared to other brands, but as we explained above it is totally worth it. It is already worth it just for the safety of yourself. If someone asks me, do you think that the extra money is worth the Fluke multimeter. I always respond with the following question: Do you think a little more extra money is worth your own safety?
After that they all look into a Fluke multimeter.
