Fluke clamp meters offer job-focused features

September 2012

Whether you’re a technician out on the job or a homeowner tackling a do-it-yourself project, one secret to fixing it right is carrying test tools with all the features and capabilities you need.

That’s the principle behind the new Fluke 320 series clamp meters. They offer Fluke ruggedness and precision, and a choice of features to get the job done - whether it’s home use, plant maintenance, HVAC repair or…you name it.

The Fluke 320 series clamp meters deliver many of the measurement capabilities of a digital multimeter, with the added ability to measure current up to 400 amps. These clamp meters have a slim, ergonomic design that makes them easy to handle. A large display is easy to read. And their Fluke DNA imparts the precision, dependability, and toughness to make them a reliable partner on the job.

The best for troubleshooting

The Fluke 323 True-RMS Clamp Meter

The Fluke 323 True RMS Clamp Meter gives you the ability to measure current up to 400 amps.

Created for commercial, light industrial, HVAC, residential, and DIY applications, the new clamp meters are general troubleshooting tools for commercial and residential electricians and homeowners. They replace the previous Fluke 321 and 322 models. The Fluke 320 series clamps are designed for work in

  • Service - repairing existing systems as needed
  • Installation - troubleshooting installation problems, performing final circuit tests, and supervising apprentice electricians while installing electrical equipment
  • Maintenance - performing scheduled and preventative maintenance and troubleshooting.

Using a clamp meter to quickly check how much current a load is drawing helps a technician get one step closer to diagnosing why an electrical system or piece of equipment is not operating correctly. Industrial situations often call for simultaneous measurement as part of troubleshooting, so many of those users carry two meters: a clamp meter to measure electrical current and a regular digital multimeter to measure voltage at the same time.

Strong in the basics…and more

The Fluke 323 True-RMS Clamp Meter

All three of the new models include soft carrying case, test leads, and instruction cards.

The three members of the 320 family share a number of key capabilities, such as True-rms ac voltage and current readings (True-rms delivers accurate measurements on nonlinear signals). All measure ac and dc voltage up to 600 V, and they all provide continuity detection and measure resistance up to 40 kΩ. All are rated for safe duty in CAT III 600 V and CAT IV 300 V environments, and all come with a two-year Fluke warranty.

Stepping up from the basic Fluke 323 to the Fluke 324 True RMS Clamp Meter adds the ability to measure capacitance (100.0 uF to 1000 uF), plus contact temperature measurement with a range of 14.0 0F to 752.0 0F. The Fluke 324 also has a backlit display.

The Fluke 325 True RMS Clamp Meter delivers all the features of the Fluke 324 and adds the ability to measure frequency, Min/Max, and dc current up to 400 A. DC current measurement is more often required in larger commercial and industrial settings, for work on motors and other loads, and for servicing backup generators, battery banks and photovoltaics.
