PRESS RELEASE : Fluke introduces 88V Automotive Test Combo Kit with lifetime warranty

EVERETT, Wash. - Fluke, a world leader in test and measurement products and services, today introduced the Fluke 88V Automotive Test Combo Kit, featuring the newest Fluke automotive meter and a complete set of accessories designed to maximize productivity and safety for automotive professionals.

The kit features the new Fluke 88V Digital Multimeter, built specifically for automotive applications. The Fluke 88V has a built-in thermometer, enabling automotive technicians to take accurate temperature readings without buying a separate tool. It also features display digits that are 30 percent larger, with a brighter white backlight for easier reading. Packaged in a sturdy carrying case, the Fluke 88V Automotive Combo Kit comes with a variety of accessories that extend the capabilities of the meter. They include:

  • Heat resistant, flexible silicone test leads
  • Removable sharp pointed test probes
  • Wide-jaw alligator clips
  • Temperature probe
  • Inductive pick-up probe for RPM measurements
  • Back probe pins
  • Insulation piercing probe
  • Magnetic hangar for hands free operation

The magnetic hanger is particularly useful, enabling technicians to snap their meter securely onto body panels and other steel parts where it is easily accessible, freeing their hands for other tasks.

As future automotive electrical systems move to higher voltages, test tool safety becomes increasingly important. The Fluke 88V DMM is designed to meet the most rigorous safety standards, and its performance has been validated by independent testing organizations. The meter is rated for use in high-energy environments such as the electrical systems found in hybrid vehicles. The Fluke 88V multimeter uses ‘average responding’ technology that is well suited for automotive applications, and includes a number of capabilities and features helpful to automotive technicians, including:

  • Peak Capture function records transients as brief as 250 microseconds to capture signals from intermittent shorts.
  • Conductance function is useful for diagnosing shorted primary and secondary windings of DIS coil packs.
  • Millisecond pulse-width measurements for troubleshooting fuel injectors
  • New battery door enables fast battery replacement without opening the case
  • Splash-resistant design is engineered to survive in tough garage environments
