Fluke 177 True RMS Digital Multimeter
The Fluke® 177 Digital Multimeter is an easy-to-use True RMS DMM, specifically made for front-line industrial, electrical, and electronic technicians. It measures AC/DC voltage to 1000V, current to 10A, resistance to 50MΩ, capacitance to 10,000 µF and frequency to 100 kHz. This tester complies with the EN61010 Second Edition standard which addresses CAT IV overvoltage requirements. All inputs are designed to withstand an impulse voltage in excess of 8 kV which complies with CAT IV 600-V requirements.
The 177 True RMS digital multimeter comes supplied with TL75 test leads, installed 9V battery holster and manual. This 1.5-pound unit is 6.25" x 3.25" x 9.2" Lifetime warranty.
This mid-range, True-RMS DMM, with backlighting and 0.09% basic DC voltage accuracy, is a tough, accurate and powerful tool. It was developed for use in environments that range from relatively clean bench areas to some of the harshest work environments. With 6000 counts of resolution, a bright, backlit digital display updates four times a second. It automatically turns off after two minutes to save battery life. The DMM offers V AC range from 0.1 mV to 1000 V and frequency range from 2 Hz to 100 kHz. With a range from to 1 nF to 9999 µF, it provides a broad spectrum of measurement readings needed by technicians and engineers working on electric motors and other equipment. While operating in the Min/Max/Avg mode, the meter emits an audible tone to signal that a new minimum or maximum reading has been sensed and stored. Users can select response time (the minimum time a signal must be present to be recorded) between 100 milliseconds and 1 second.
One of the key features of this DMM is its innovative, ergonomic tapered-case design. It incorporates an overmolded, soft polyurethane bonded to a hard polycarbonate alloy case structure. With this high-impact overmolding technology, a shock load is dispersed over a greater area of the case. The rigid structure minimizes case flex, which in turn reduces stress on the electronics inside the unit. Outside the case, the standard-issue probe holders are conveniently integrated into the overmolding. An innovative battery access door allows the user to change the batteries with a standard screwdriver without breaking the calibration seal. In addition, the closed-case calibration feature allows calibration adjustments to be made directly from the front panel.
