Setting the multimeter standard

The three models of the Fluke 170 Series True RMS digital multimeters are the benchmarks for general purpose multimeters. They set the standard with a combination of precision, features, ease-of-use, safety and reliability.

  • True RMS voltage and current measurements
  • 0.09% basic accuracy (177, 179)
  • 6000 count resolution
  • Digital display with analog bargraph and backlight (177, 179)
  • Manual and automatic ranging
  • Display Hold and Auto Hold
  • Frequency and capacitance measurements
  • Resistance, continuity and diode measurements
  • Temperature measurements (179)
  • Min-max-average recording
  • Smoothing mode allows filtering of rapidly changing inputs
  • Easy battery exchange without opening the case
  • Closed case calibration through front panel
  • Ergonomic case with integrated protective holster
  • EN61010-1 CAT III 1000V / CAT IV 600V
  • Measures twice as fast as other multimeters

Safety conformance
