  • Why Buy From Delta Pro Meters & Measurement

    Fluke 1587 FC  insulation tester and multimeter

    The Fluke 1587 FC combines a digital insulation tester with a full-featured, true-rms digital multimeter in a single compact, handheld unit, which provides maximum versatility for both troubleshooting and preventative maintenance.

    The Fluke 1587 FC Insulation Multimeter adds four powerful new diagnostic functions through the Fluke Connect® Measurements app:

    • PI/DAR timed ratio tests with TrendIt™ graphs identifies moisture and contaminated insulation problems faster

    • Memory storage through Fluke Connect eliminates writing down results, reduces errors and saves data for historical tracking over time

    • Temperature Compensation through app for establishing accurate baselines and relevant historical comparisons

    • Historical tracking and trending of assets identifies degradation over time, allows real-time decisions to be made in the field with Fluke Connect® Assets (sold separately)

     

    ** THIS PRODUCT COMES WITH A FREE GIFT - an Extech DV23 voltage detector pen, valued at $29 **

    Reputable & Quality Brands

    Sticker showing Quality Brand Stamp

    Our founder Steve is an electrician himself, and he says there's nothing worse than having dodgy tools and equipment in your toolbox.  (We in the office however feel confident there are in fact things much MUCH worse.  Like you know, being chased by a crazy, angry bear; or being a hit by speeding bus; or being zapped by 240 volts of electricity while standing bare foot in a puddle...  But you know, he's the boss, so we'll go with what he says).    Which is why he has made sure that every brand and model stocked in our store is a brand with a solid reputation for quality products. 

     

    30 Day Returns

    30 Day Guarantee

    Shop risk free, and be confident in your choice!  If you're not 100% sure you've ordered the best piece of equipment for your needs (although this is unlikely, particularly as you have our easy-to-use search filtering system and Steve's help if you need it!), then you're welcome to  return any of our items within 30 days, for a full refund.

    Confused?

    Overwhelmed?

    It’s one thing to know what basic functions you require of a multimeter - Voltage, Current, Resistance, Capacitance, Temperature etc.  It’s another thing to nut through all the specifications and understand exactly what your multimeter is capable of.

    A lot of the time you only need to know the course parameters of each measurement,  e.g. up to 1000A current,  600V voltage,  1 mega-ohm resistance etc.  But sometimes, particularly in industrial applications, you need to know how your multimeter performs a particular test, how accurate the displayed results are, and whether or not the multimeter will be safe and reliable for the intended application. 

    This is where terms such as count, range, resolution, basic accuracy, IP rating, CAT rating, True RMS, crest factor and others come into play. 

    If you are not familiar with these terms and how they relate to multimeter measurement, Steve has put together a series of blogs to explain in laymen’s terms what each mean.

    Fluke 1587 FC  insulation tester and multimeter

    The Fluke 1587 FC combines a digital insulation tester with a full-featured, true-rms digital multimeter in a single compact, handheld unit, which provides maximum versatility for both troubleshooting and preventative maintenance.

    The Fluke 1587 FC Insulation Multimeter adds four powerful new diagnostic functions through the Fluke Connect® Measurements app:

    • PI/DAR timed ratio tests with TrendIt™ graphs identifies moisture and contaminated insulation problems faster

    • Memory storage through Fluke Connect eliminates writing down results, reduces errors and saves data for historical tracking over time

    • Temperature Compensation through app for establishing accurate baselines and relevant historical comparisons

    • Historical tracking and trending of assets identifies degradation over time, allows real-time decisions to be made in the field with Fluke Connect® Assets (sold separately)

     

    ** THIS PRODUCT COMES WITH A FREE GIFT - an Extech DV23 voltage detector pen, valued at $29 **

    Reputable & Quality Brands

    Sticker showing Quality Brand Stamp

    Our founder Steve is an electrician himself, and he says there's nothing worse than having dodgy tools and equipment in your toolbox.  (We in the office however feel confident there are in fact things much MUCH worse.  Like you know, being chased by a crazy, angry bear; or being a hit by speeding bus; or being zapped by 240 volts of electricity while standing bare foot in a puddle...  But you know, he's the boss, so we'll go with what he says).    Which is why he has made sure that every brand and model stocked in our store is a brand with a solid reputation for quality products.

    Man overwhelmed by choice of multimeters

     

    Confused?

    Overwhelmed?

    It’s one thing to know what basic functions you require of a multimeter - Voltage, Current, Resistance, Capacitance, Temperature etc.  It’s another thing to nut through all the specifications and understand exactly what your multimeter is capable of.

    A lot of the time you only need to know the course parameters of each measurement,  e.g. up to 1000A current,  600V voltage,  1 mega-ohm resistance etc.  But sometimes, particularly in industrial applications, you need to know how your multimeter performs a particular test, how accurate the displayed results are, and whether or not the multimeter will be safe and reliable for the intended application. 

    This is where terms such as count, range, resolution, basic accuracy, IP rating, CAT rating, True RMS, crest factor and others come into play. 

    If you are not familiar with these terms and how they relate to multimeter measurement, Steve has put together a series of blogs to explain in laymen’s terms what each mean.
