  • Isolate Intermittent Electrical Faults with the Fluke 174 Digital Multimeter

    Timing is everything when trying to find an intermittent problem and the hard part is, it doesn't always show up when you have your meter connected. The Fluke 174 DMM solves that problem for you. Connect your 174 and let the meter’s built in MIN/MAX recording functions capture intermittents as short as 350 ms dc (> 900 ms ac).

    Measure and Hold important readings

    The Fluke 174 offers a display hold mode, which temporarily holds the DMM measurement in the display. The meter lets you make ac or dc voltage measurements up to 1000 V. The 174 lets you perform frequency, capacitance, resistance, continuity and diode tests.

  • The Fluke 174 Digital Multimeter has all the essentials for convenient test and measurement troubleshooting.

    • AC and DC voltage measurements to 1000V
    • AC and DC current with 0.01 mA resolution
    • Continuity, resistance, diode test, capacitance and frequency measurements
    • MIN/MAX Recording
    • CAT III 1000 V, Cat IV 600 V; IP54
  • For all specifications: accuracy is specified for one year after calibration, at operating temperatures of 18 °C to 28 °C, with relative humidity at 0 % to 90 %. Accuracy specifications take the form of ± ([ % of Reading ] + [ Number of least significant digits ]).
