Those who use electrical testers to capture measurements such as voltage and current, know that the process is traditionally time-consuming and carries potential safety risks. Fluke T6 Electrical Testers provide a faster and safer method for taking electrical readings on distribution panels and junction boxes, among other applications. Several videos here present How-to lessons for using the T6 meters.
These tools sense an electrical field in the open fork, letting users take the measurement with ease. Thanks to the new FieldSense technology, the T6 makes work safer because you can measure voltage, up to 1,000 Vac, through its open fork.
The capability of measuring voltage and current at the same time while eliminating the need to open covers or remove wire nuts, lets users take measurements faster and more efficiently than previously possible.
In addition, the open fork is the widest available in the industry and can measure wires up to AWG 4/0 (120 mm2) carrying as much as 200 Amps. Commercial and light industrial electricians can use T6 Electrical Testers for basic troubleshooting, verifying voltage and continuity values, as well as testing individual circuits while quickly checking current and voltage measurements without test leads. These devices easily fit in pockets, making them easy to access on the front-line for electricians of all industries. Common applications include testing:
- Wire runs in conduit and junction boxes
- Feed circuits coming into motors (up to 200 amps)
- Distribution panels (will go around 4/0 wire)
- HVAC equipment
- Conduit cases (using the black test lead)
