PRESS RELEASE : New Fluke i2500-18 and i2500-10 iFlex® Current Probes Deliver Unprecedented Measurement Flexibility

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced new iFlex® flexible current probes, designed to make current measurement easier, more convenient and more precise for electricians and industrial technicians.

The new Fluke iFlex® flexible current probes expand the measurement range of select Fluke meters to 2500 A AC and give technicians the ultimate in measurement flexibility. The large coil allows users to reach around large or awkward-shaped conductors up to 6 inches in diameter, while the small 0.3-inch profile allows the coil to reach between tightly-packed cables and improves access in crowded spaces. A 6-foot cord makes it easier to see readings at a distance from the conductor.

The iFlex® probes connect directly to the meter, displaying current measurements without error-prone scaling factors. In addition to AC current measurement, they also work with frequency, inrush, and min/max/avg functions. The iFlex® current probes are available in 10 in and 18 in sizes.

The iFlex® current probe i2500-18 is included with the new Fluke 381 and Fluke 376 Clamp Meters. Both iFlex models are compatible with Fluke 375 and Fluke 374 Clamp Meters. US list price for either model is $98.95.

The iFlex® current probes are members of a new family of Fluke clamp meters designed to meet users’ requirements for flexibility, safety and performance in the most challenging industrial conditions. This new Fluke family of clamp meters includes:
