Fluke Corporation, represented in Australia by Fluke Australia , has announced the release of the new Fluke 233/A wireless remote display automotive digital multimeter kit. This automotive digital multimeter kit features a detachable wireless display that has been specifically designed for automotive troubleshooting.
The wireless display simply slides out of the meter body of the Fluke 233/A automotive digital multimeter kit. This enables technicians to place the display for optimum measurement and where it can be easily seen, up to 10 meters (33 feet) from the point of measurement. The removable display can be mounted or placed on any flat surface to be conveniently seen thanks to the magnetic back and flat bottom. When the display is attached to the meter body, the Fluke 233/A operates as a conventional multimeter.
The detachable wireless display on the automotive digital multimeter kit enables the user to:
- attach test leads to brake lights while sitting in the driver’s seat, pressing the brake pedal and viewing the display
- find a comfortable position to view and record test data, even when the test location is hard to reach or in a dirty or noisy environments
- run tests and read results at a safe distance from high-voltage, high-current systems
- safely view under-hood measurements on moving vehicles
- separate the tasks of positioning the meter and reading test results, devoting full attention to each job — and working more safely
The Fluke 233/A automotive digital multimeter kit is safety rated for use in CAT III 1000V, CAT IV 600V working environments, important for technicians working on hybrid vehicles that regularly use high-voltage and high-current systems not found on conventional vehicles.
The automotive digital multimeter kit uses a low-power 2.4 GHz ISM Band wireless signal that is resistant to electromagnetic interference from ignition systems and other EMI sources, and will not interfere with other nearby electronic devices. When the display is removed from the meter, the radio transmitter automatically turns on. It shuts off when the display is reattached.
Designed for both convenience and safety, the Fluke 233/A automotive digital multimeter kit includes the following:
- alligator clips
- automotive backprobe pins
- Fluke 233/A remote display multimeter
- magnetic meter hanging strap
- soft carry case
- test leads
- thermocouple probe
A training DVD is also included in the wireless remote display multimeter kit to assist technicians in getting the most from their Fluke test tools.
The Fluke 233/A automotive digital multimeter kit can measure up to 1000 V ac and dc and can perform current measurements up to 10 amps.
These digital multimeters feature a 10,000 µF capacitance range, measures frequencies to 50 kHz and captures min/max and average readings automatically.
The automotive digital multimeter kit features a 6,000-count display and includes a built-in thermometer so that users can take temperature readings easily without carrying a separate instrument.
The meter body requires three AA batteries and the display requires two AA batteries. The auto-off feature on the automotive digital multimeter maximises battery life.
