EVERETT, Wash. – The Fluke® 381 Remote Display True RMS AC/DC Clamp Meter with iFlex™ has been named the Gold Award Winner in the Tools category in the ACHR-The NEWS 8th Annual Dealer Design Awards. The award recognizes excellence in HVACR product design.
The 127 entries in the 2011 awards were judged by a panel of independent HVACR contractors selected by the editorial staff of The NEWS. The panel reviewed each entry and judged it on its ease of installation and use, maintenance, application and repair, and competitive difference. Gold, silver, and bronze winners were selected in each category.
“The Dealer Design Award recognition for the innovative 381 Clamp Meter confirms what we hear all the time: that technicians want a meter that makes a real difference in the way they do their jobs,” said Clement Feng, Vice President Global Marketing, Fluke Corporation. “With its unique detachable display and iFlex probe, the 381 delivers the performance and flexibility HVACR technicians need to help them get their work done quicker and more easily.”
This is the fourth major recognition this year for the Fluke 381. The meter also won the EC&M 2011 Product of the Year Category Winner in the portable measurement equipment category, the 2010 Control Engineering Engineers’ Choice Awards in the portable measurement equipment category, and 2010 Plant Engineering Product of the Year Silver Award in the Maintenance Tools and Equipment category.
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. The U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the Fluke 381 is $499.95.
