PRESS RELEASE : Fluke announces energy-counting and 80 amp options

EVERETT, WA – Fluke Corporation, the world's leading supplier of test and measurement equipment, announced two significant options on the Fluke 6100A for the calibration and verification of instruments used to measure energy.

The Fluke 6100A is a multi-phase, highly accurate , and reliable source of electrical power signals and power disturbances. It represents an integrated system that provides users with complete confidence in the accuracy of their power measurement tools. The Fluke 6100A energy-counting option represents an improvement to current calibration methods that lack appropriate accuracy and functionality for calibrating a wide range of equipment in the cal lab, design engineering, and manufacturing test environments.

"The new Fluke 6100A energy-counting and 80 amp options open the instrument to a broader range of power measurement and calibration applications," said Dave Coombes, of Fluke Precision Measurement in Norwich, UK. "We overcame several design challenges to make the innovative 6100A Power Standard easier to use and to provide users with previously unavailable functions to verify the performance of energy meters under real-life conditions.  These tests are mandated in most countries but are notoriously difficult to perform accurately and repeatedly. Instead of needing three separate instruments, the 6100A with the energy-counting option can be used as an energy supply, reference meter, and pulse counter/comparator in one unit," added Coombes. 

Scalable and simple, yet highly accurate with phase accuracies better than 0.005 degrees, the Fluke 6100A with the energy-counting option is the ideal standard for revenue or energy meters and the increasing number of power analyzers which offer energy as part of their measurement function.
