Fluke Australia presents a new range of fluorescent light testers designed to eliminate guesswork during lighting maintenance, reducing labour costs for managers and saving time for technicians.
Maintaining fluorescent lamps typically involves a trial-and-error process, with the technician changing the bulb, ballast and other components to narrow down the problem. The process can be tedious, time-consuming and inefficient, with the additional safety issues related to the repeated use of a ladder by the technician to access the lamp.
Fluke 1000FLT fluorescent light tester eliminates the guesswork involved in maintaining fluorescent lamps by performing all the essential tests on lamps in less than 30 seconds: lamp tester, ballast tester, non-contact voltage detector, pin continuity tester, and ballast discriminator. The 1000FLT eliminates trial, error and rework, and reduces the time maintenance teams spend fixing lights.
The point-and-shoot ballast discriminator in the 1000FLT speeds up the replacement of old magnetic ballasts with new energy-efficient electronic models by quickly identifying the type of ballast used in the fixture even before the technician climbs the ladder. There is no need to remove the bulb or make contact with live circuitry since the 1000FLT fluorescent light tester can be simply pointed at the glowing bulb to determine the ballast type.
The tester comes with a rugged, metal test rod that extends up to 31 inches, eliminating the need to climb a ladder to conduct multiple tests; a belt-style holster also ensures the tester is always within easy reach.
The Fluke 1000FLT fluorescent light tester is protected by a three-year warranty.
