PRESS RELEASE : Fluke 1630-2 FC Stakeless Earth Ground Clamp performs tests without disconnecting the earth ground electrode from the grounding system

New wireless earth ground and ac leakage clamp delivers fast, indoor/outdoor ground loop and leakage tests without driving stakes

EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 21, 2017– Testing the grounding components of equipment by disconnecting parallel grounds and finding suitable locations for auxiliary ground stakes can be dangerous and time-consuming. With the new Fluke® 1630-2 FC Stakeless Earth Ground Clamp, electricians and maintenance technicians can measure earth ground loop resistances for multi-grounded systems using only the dual-clamp jaw, so measurements can be taken quickly and safely without having to expose conductors.

The clamp automatically records data at pre-set intervals and saves up to 32,760 measurements in memory at the set logging intervals. Its heavy-duty clamp jaw is designed to stay in alignment and calibration even in the harshest industrial environments.

Fluke Connect

The 1630-2 FC is part of Fluke Connect® — a system of more than 40 wireless test tools that communicate via the Fluke Connect app, or Fluke Connect Assets software, a cloud-based solution that gathers measurements to provide a comprehensive view of critical equipment status — allowing technicians to view, record, and share measurements from the clamp in real time via their smartphones or tablets and automatically upload them to Fluke Cloud storage along with tags and the GPS location of assets.

The clamp is also available in a non-Fluke Connect model.
