Fluke 381 Remote Display True RMS AC/DC Clamp Meter with iFlex™
Five major recognitions this year (so far!) for the Fluke 381 Remote Display True RMS AC/DC Clamp Meter with iFlex™.
The Fluke 381 has been named the EC&M 2011 Platinum Product of the Year - its top award.
The Platinum winner is chosen by the readers of EC&M from all the Product of the Year category winners, which were announced in March. The 381 was named a category winner in the portable measurement equipment category. To determine the category winners, the entries were evaluated carefully by a panel of seven judges consisting of a mix of electrical engineers, contractors, inspectors, and plant facility personnel selected from the EC&M readership. From the 24 category winners, EC&M subscribers voted to determine the 2011 Product of the Year Platinum, Gold (1st runner-up), and Silver (2nd runner-up) winners.
The EC&M Product of the Year competition honors excellence in new product development in the electrical industry.
A panel of independent HVACR contractors selected by the editorial staff of The NEWS selected the Fluke 381 from 127 entries. The panel reviewed each entry and judged it on its ease of installation and use, maintenance, application and repair, and competitive difference. The panel selected gold, silver and bronze winners in each category.
Five awards so far
In addition to the EC&M Platinum and EC&M Category recognitions, and the Gold Award from the NEWS, the meter won the 2010 Control Engineering Engineers' Choice Award in the portable measurement equipment category and the 2010 Plant Engineering Product of the Year Silver Award in the Maintenance Tools and Equipment category. And…the Fluke 381 was a Consulting-Specifying Engineer Product of the Year Finalist. That makes five awards this year for the Fluke 381.
About the Fluke 381 Clamp Meter
The first clamp meter with a wireless display, the Fluke 381 allows one technician to do the work of two, by leaving the clamp in place and taking the measurement readout to another location up to 30 feet away. The accompanying iFlex™ flexible current probe allows the user to measure large, inflexible, or hard-to-reach conductors up to 2500 amps. And the clamp meter itself allows electricians to take all of the most common measurements required by today's complex systems, quickly, without complication, and with extremely high accuracy. That means fewer tools, less hassle, faster results.
