PRESS RELEASE : New Fluke fused test probes provide added measurement

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced test probes with built-in fuses for additional measurement protection.
Fluke FTP Fused Test Probes comply with recommendations of the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) of Ontario, Canada, which has led a drive to adopt fused test leads as an added safety measure for those doing electrical testing with multimeters.

Fluke Fused Test probes incorporate additional safety features. If the probe fuse does blow, these probes will still allow the meter to indicate live voltage. They are rated to CAT III 1000 V and have sheathed tips for additional safety. These new modular probes can mount onto any modular lead format. Features include:
  • Built-in fuses for additional measurement protection.
  • Probes allow indication of live voltage even with blown fuse.
  • 2 mm threaded probe tips include removable 4 mm lantern-style spring contacts and removable GS38 insulated IC caps for probing closely spaced leads.
  • Operating temperature – 20 °C to 50 °C (-5 °F to 120 °F).
  • CAT III 1000 V, CAT IV 600 V, 10 A rating.

The Fluke FTP Fused Test Probe set is available from Fluke distributors at a suggested retail price of $74.95 and the Fluke FTP Fused Test Probe with Test Leads has a suggested retail price of $84.95.
