Fluke T6 electrical tester measures current and voltage

Fluke T6-1000 Electrical Tester Wins 2019 Best New Product Award at MCEE

  • The Fluke T6-1000 Electrical Tester won the 2019 Best New Product Award in the Protective Tools, Hardware, and Equipment category at the Mécanex/Climatex/Expolectriq/Éclairage (MCEE) Show held in Montréal in April.
  • The MCEE New Products Competition recognizes the most innovative products that increase the efficiency and safety of mechanical and electrical installations.
  • This is the ninth honor for the Fluke T6 Electrical Testers, which were introduced in September 2017.

The T6 Electrical Testers with FieldSense Technology allow electricians to take simultaneous voltage and current measurements — not just detection — without test leads. They make it possible to take true-rms measurements in crowded junction boxes or along conductors with inaccessible end points, saving time, minimizing errors, and reducing the possibility of arc flash.

With the Fluke T6-600 and T6-1000 testers, with backlit displays, electricians can measure voltage up to 1000V through the open fork without test leads or exposed conductors, with no need to open panels or remove wire nuts. This saves time.

The T6-1000 simultaneously measures and displays voltage and current. It also measures resistance up to 100.0 kΩ.

With a 17.8 mm open fork, the T6 testers measure 4/0 wires up with current up to 200 A.

Fluke FieldSense Technology that enables the testers to give simultaneous voltage and current readings, not just simple go/no-go voltage detection.

The testers are 1000 V CAT III, 600 V CAT IV safety rated (600V CAT III for the T6-600 model).
