FLUKE 1587 FC 2-in-1 Insulation Tester & DMM

Keeping your motors running and your electrical system safe is a full-time job.  The 1587 FC Insulation multimeter helps you find small problems before they turn in to catastrophic failures.  Quickly finding shorts in the wiring system and spotting motor windings in need of repair and because the 1587 FC works with FLUKE Connect it can also save, store and transmit data and historical graphs to your smart phone.  The FLUKE 1587 FC TrendIt graphs works with new polarity index and dielectric absorption ratio tests to help you identify moisture and contamination faster, and with varying temperature conditions the new temperature compensation helps establish accurate baselines when doing historical comparisons over time.

The FLUKE 1587 FC tests the integrity of insulation from 50 V up to 1000 V, and 0.01 MΩ to 2 GΩ.

In addition to enhanced insulation analysis you‘ll enjoy all the multimeter you expect from the from the 1587 including a VFD low-pass filter to accurately test variable speed drives as well as other tests for complex motor trouble shooting and capturing intermittent events.
