Expand the power of the world's most rugged, accurate handheld test tools with FlukeView® Forms Documenting Software.
To address the increasing demands for reporting and documentation, Fluke presents FlukeView Forms documenting software. FlukeView Forms increases the power of your Fluke tool by enabling you to document, store and analyze individual readings or series of measurements, then convert them into professional looking documents.
Several versions of the product are available, depending upon the type of cable needed to download data from your instrument and depending upon the data reporting capability you need. FlukeView Forms offers two levels of capability: FlukeView Forms Basic, and FlukeView Forms plus Designer. FlukeView Forms Basic can be used alone to download measurement data and create reports that can be saved and printed. FlukeView Forms plus Designer allows a user to edit an existing form or create a new form to customize the report to individual needs. A common edit might add a company logo and title. See the [Features] tab on this page for more information.

Using FlukeView® Forms with Multimeters, Thermometers†, MegOhmeters and ProcessMeter™ tools
For the meters in the table below, you can measure and store hundreds of readings to the meter's internal memory, and then later download the information to FlukeView® Forms. For meters that do not have internal memory, such as the Fluke-187, Fluke-789 and the Fluke-45, you can take interactive readings while connected to your PC with FlukeView® Forms.
FlukeView® Forms also logs events to make analyzing your data easier. This unique method of data recording provides more detailed readings when the input signal changes significantly. The amount of signal change that will trigger an event can be adjusted to fit your specific test situation. The minimum, maximum and average of readings are recorded for each event. Logging sessions can also be configured so that data will be recorded over specific intervals (e.g., every 5 minutes or 30 seconds).
Using FlukeView® Forms with Fluke 1653B Installation tester†
Up to 500 test results can be stored in the Fluke 1653B installation tester. The data stored for each measurement consists of the test function, user selectable test conditions and unique references. The results can be uploaded for preparing professional reports. These reports can easily be customized to suit individual requirements as well as compliance with local regulations. Standard formats as well as localized forms for Germany (ZVEH), Austria (ÖVE) and Switzerland (electrosuisse, gem. NIV) are also available
