Think About Working with the World's Smartest Meter

Introducing the new Fluke 180 Series Digital Multimeter 
Check out the features and you'll see we've enhanced the performance beyond any other handheld meter on the planet. Like faster readings. Extended ranges. Lower DC volts. Dual displays. Broader capacitance range. The ability to download data to your PC. And a lot more. No wonder more people prefer Fluke meters over any other brand. Anywhere. So make a smart move. Discover the world's smartest meter — the Fluke 180 Series.




Key Features
  • 0.025% basic DC accuracy.
  • 50,000-count resolution with instant readings enables detailed analyses.
  • 100 kHz ac bandwidth opens the possibilities of modern applications not possible with less capable DMMs.
  • Internal memory allows for stand alone logging of measurement changes (up to 3 days) indentifying stable and unstable periods with a real-time stamp.
  • MIN MAX to record and timestamp values in real-time.
  • 250 µS Fast MIN MAX for peak transient capture.
  • Temperature readings in ºC or ºF using optional K-type thermocouple.
  • Enhanced ranges, such as dc voltage measurements down to 10 µV, and capacitance up to 50,000 µF.
  • Multiple reading display with bargraph has two-level backlight.
  • The Fluke 187 and 189 both have on-line logging capabilities when connected to a PC. The 189 has the additional cabability of logging 995 readings in a stand-alone application for later download to a PC.

TPAK™ Hanging Meter Kit
Hang your Fluke 180 Series meters by a magnet or strap hanger with the optional TPAK accessory.
Lock your Fluke 180 Series meters in place with the optional LPAK80-4 accessory.

FlukeView® Forms Software

FlukeView® Forms Software is the easy way to document, store and analyze measurements from your Fluke Digital Multimeter. Use it with:

  • Fluke 180 Series Digital Multimeters (Model FVF-SC2)
  • Fluke 87-IV & 89-IV Digital Multimeters (Model FVF-SC1)
  • Fluke 53-II & 54-II Thermometers (Model FVF-SC1)

 Now you can get the professional looking documents you need and data analysis that is much more in-depth than from a meter alone. FlukeView Forms records, charts and graphs data to help you perform in-depth analysis.

And it's so easy to use. FlukeView Forms comes with both standard and customizable forms. You can use them immediately or customize the format to fit your specific applications. Once your form is standardized, it can be easily used by less trained staff. If you prefer another brand of measurement analysis software, FlukeView Forms can easily port your data to the program of your choice.

IEC 1010-1 safety

What the IEC 1010-1 safety standard means to you .

As electrical systems grow more and more complex, spikes, transients, surges, and sudden overvoltage events become more common. These can trigger a sequence of events that may lead to serious injury. Which is why test equipment must be designed to protect people who work in this high-voltage high-current environment.

The IEC 1010 safety standard was established to define four overvoltage categories (CAT I, CAT II, CAT III, and CAT IV) based on the magnitude of danger from transient impulses.

The new Fluke 180 Series DMMs feature enhanced protection to IEC 61010 overvoltage category III for voltages up to 1000V and Category IV for voltages up to 600V. This helps protect from transients in three-phase distribution systems, including:

  • Single-phase commercial lighting.
  • Equipment in fixed installations, such as switch gear and polyphase motors.
  • Bus and feeder in industrial plants.
  • Lighting systems in larger buildings.
  • Appliance outlets with short connections to the service entrance.
