PRESS RELEASE : Fluke introduces testing up to 10 kV with the new 1555 and redesigned 1550C insulation testers

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the new Fluke 1555 and redesigned Fluke 1550C insulation resistance testers designed for a wide range of diagnostic and predictive maintenance programs.

These testers offer digital insulation testing up to 10 kV (Fluke 1555), making them ideal for testing a wide range of high voltage equipment including switchgear, motors, generators and cables.

Fluke insulation testers can now conduct the entire range of test voltages specified in IEEE 43-2000 with a best in class, three year warranty and CAT III, 1000 V, CAT IV 600 V safety rating. With measurement storage and PC interface, the Fluke 1555 and 1550C are perfect tools for long term equipment monitoring.

Features of the Fluke 1555 and 1550C include:

  • Test voltages up to 10 kV provides solutions for all applications.
  • CAT III 1000 V, CAT IV 600 V safety rating.
  • Warning function alerts the user that line voltage is present and gives the voltage reading up to 600 V ac or dc for increased user safety. 
  • Selectable test voltages in 50 V steps from 250 V to 1000 V, and 100 V steps above 1000 V.
  • Measurements can be stored in up to 99 memory locations, with each location assigned a unique, user-defined label for easy recall.
  • Long battery life performs more than 750 tests between charges.
  • Automatic calculation of Dielectric Absorption (DAR) and Polarization Index (PI) with no additional setup.
  • Guard system eliminates the effect of surface leakage current on high-resistance measurements.
  • Large digital/analog LCD for easy viewing.
  • Capacitance and leakage current measurement.
  • Ramp function for breakdown testing.
