PRESS RELEASE : New Fluke online resource and drawing for free training will help technicians solve hidden electrical problems

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has established a new online information and training resource, http://www.HiddenPowerProblems.com/ , dedicated to helping electricians uncover and solve critical and troublesome issues that may lurk in their electrical systems.

In addition, site users can enter to win a $3,000 hands-on power quality training course at their location, for themselves and up to nine colleagues. The last chance to enter is October 31 and the winner will be selected by random drawing on or about Nov. 3, 2008. The HiddenPowerProblems.com site provides a one-stop resource for electrical professionals who want to understand the underlying causes of symptoms they may see in their facilities:

  • Repeated equipment failures
  • Random equipment resets or process failures
  • Breakers tripping or fuses blowing with no signs of overloading
  • Transformers or motors running hot
  • Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) frequently going on line

These symptoms are often caused by power quality problems, such as voltage dips or swells, harmonic distortion, voltage unbalance, flicker and transients, or voltage spikes. These conditions are usually caused in the facility itself. Yet many electrical professionals are unsure about how to identify, fix and avoid problems with power quality.

HiddenPowerProblems.com is structured to help electricians first look at symptoms, and then walks them through the steps they can take to find and fix the cause. Users have access to a rich resource library, training materials and online seminars, online problem-solving tools, an online forum for electrical professionals and information on Fluke diagnostic tools.
