Fluke 115 Digital Multimeter
Manufactured by the Fluke Corporation, the Fluke 115 Series digital multimeter is an all-purpose device specially suited for field use. With a host of utilitarian features, the 115 Series is a versatile, durable device for technicians. Fluke has a tradition of manufacturing precision testing and calibration devices for over 60 years. The 115 series is a general purpose, outdoor multimeter that is used by electronics and electrical professionals all over the world.
Overview and Features
Designed for outdoor use, the Fluke digital multimeter features the standard voltmeter, ammeter, and ohmmeter covering a range of measurements for alternating current and direct current. With a warranty of 3 years, the multimeter weighs a little over 500 grams and is powered by a 9-volt alkaline battery for optimum performance outdoors. The 115 series is remarkably resistant to temperature changes, operating in a temperature variation of 60 degrees centigrade with an impressive storage band between -40 degrees to 60 degrees centigrade. The device also has a battery flap for easy changing of batteries while outdoors.
The most important feature of the Fluke 115 series digital multimeter is its large LED-backlit screen with large display. This allows the user to view the screen in low light conditions. As a safety requirement, the 115 series complies with the CAT III 600 V safety standard, certified by CE, TUV, CSA, and UL. The device has a peak protection value of 6kV.
The Fluke Multimeter 115 has a 6000-count resolution and is able to measure and test capacitance, continuity and frequency. The device is calibrated to measure 10A current with a burst overload tolerance of 20A for 30 seconds. Since it is used in outdoor testing and measurement, the device is built to measure maximum, minimum, and average values of a signal.
Another important feature of the multimeter is the Lo-Z Capacitance measurement and testing tolerance of 1-500 nF. The continuity testing on the device is also quite sensitive, detecting open or short circuits with duration greater than 500 milliseconds.
The Fluke 115 Series multimeter is a true-rms multimeter, calculating the root mean square of an alternating current signal.
The Fluke Multimeter 115 comes with a standard accessory kit that includes the battery, two 4 mm silicone test leads, and a field holster for protection against the elements. Additional accessories such as cleaner wipes, alligator clip or bus bar clip sets are available. The multimeter also has a general-purpose temperature probe.
The Fluke 115 Series multimeter is considered by many professionals, enthusiasts and technicians as the most versatile, rugged, reliable and economical multimeter for use in almost any physical environment. With Fluke’s reputation for precision measurement testing devices, the Fluke Multimeter 115 sets the standard for high performance digital multimeters today.
