Fluke ruggedizes 87V DMM to the MAX
The new model also offers twice the battery life.
Fluke’s 87V MAX True-rms digital multimeter (DMM), reportedly the company’s most rugged model to date, is designed to take measurements and help troubleshoot electrical systems in industrial environments.
Building upon the earlier 87V DMM, the 87V MAX carries an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67, making it dustproof and waterproof, has been tested to withstand a 4-m (13-ft) drop and can operate in temperatures from -15 to 55 C (5 to 131 F) and humidity up to 95%. A removable holster doubles as test lead storage and a test probe holder for one-handed operation.
The 87V MAX also offers twice the battery life as the original 87V, at up to 800 hours. It comes with TL175 retractable test leads, AC175 alligator clips and an 80BK-A type-K temperature probe.
