Fluke has introduced the 1650B Series of multifunction installation testers to test and verify domestic, commercial and industrial electrical installations – the 1651B, 1652B and 1653B models.

The 1650B Series builds on the rugged performance of the earlier 1650 Series, and has been redesigned to make testing even more productive.

The testers ensure that fixed wiring is safe and correctly installed to meet the latest BS7671 17th Edition wiring regulations, as well as IEC 60364 and HD 384.

The Fluke 1650B Series shows two measurements at once on a dual display.

This can show PEFC/PSC and loop impedance results in parallel, negating the requirement to run the tests separately, more than halving the test time of other loop testers.

The 1650B Series also features an additional high-current loop test, which gives extremely fast measurements when testing in circuits where no RCDs are being used.

All the 1650B Series models offer both non-trip and high-current test so the user can select depending on the application.

They also offer fast voltage measurement between L-N, L-PE and N-PE, using the mains cord, with no need to change measurement connections.

An earth volt touchpad detects earth voltages raised above 50V, to indicate potentially dangerous situations.

The instruments are supplied as standard with fused test leads to comply with HSE Guidance note GS38.

These leads have gold-plated contacts to ensure reliability and repeatability of testing.

The Fluke 1653B is a complete tester for virtually all electrical wiring installations, for domestic, commercial and industrial use.

The 1652B is suitable for the professional working in domestic and commercial installations.

The Fluke 1651B is an everyday tester, suitable for domestic installations, and covering all the basic needs for testing the 17th Edition wiring regulations and Part P of the building regulations.

For ease of use, a rotary dial clearly indicates which function is selected, and provides access to all functions in one place to avoid complex multi-level menus, so that even after a long period of non-use the Fluke 1650B remains intuitive to use.

A large display with backlight uses clear symbols and has an exceptionally wide viewing angle for easy and safe readings.

There is a Pass/Fail indication for RCD test results, and a variable RCD current mode for customised settings.

It is compact, lightweight (less than 1.2kg) and has a padded neck strap to free the tester’s hands.

The Fluke 1653B is equipped with a built-in memory to store test results fast and easily on site without any additional device needed.

Each stored measurement consists of the test function and user-selectable test references, such as the cabinet and circuit number.

The data can be uploaded to a computer after testing for the preparation of professional reports.

A slim probe with test button supplied with the 1652B and 1653B allows initiation of a test without the need to access or reference the front panel when probing hard to reach points.

All Fluke 1650B models have detachable standard 4mm leads that can be replaced if damaged or lost, and require no customised special connectors.

A durable hard case protects the instrument in tough field conditions.

A zero adapter ensures easy, reliable and accurate test lead and mains cord compensation.

The adapter can be used for all kinds of mains plugs and test accessories like probes and alligator clips.

Fluke Calibration

Fluke Corporation was founded in 1948, specialising in electrical test and measurement products. Early in its history, Fluke recognised that the very best electrical metrology would be needed to support its products and undertook to develop this capability. From this activity, the calibration business was born. Over the years, many breakthrough calibration products were introduced, establishing Fluke as a leader in electrical metrology.

In 2000, Fluke acquired Wavetek Precision Measurement. In 2001, Fluke’s calibration business expanded into the temperature field with the acquisition of Hart Scientific and then into pressure and gas flow with the acquisition of DH Instruments (2007), followed by Ruska and Pressurements (2010).

The unified business’s unmatched breadth and depth in metrology puts Fluke Calibration in a unique position to deliver today’s and tomorrow’s calibrations solutions to customers who demand the very best, supported by an organisation they can count on for the long term.
