Measure voltage … without test leads

We know working in electrical boxes jammed with wires can be challenging when you’re trying to find a safe metallic contact point. Now, with Fluke’s T6-600 or T6-1000 with integrated FieldSense technology, you can quickly and easily take measurements by sliding the open fork over a conductor to see the voltage level without the need for test leads.*

Why use the T6 Electrical Tester?

Electricians often work in boxes jammed with wires, where finding a safe metallic contact point can be a challenge. With the T6-600 or T6-1000 you take measurements by sliding a single wire into the open fork.

How FieldSense Works

FieldSense technology is truly a breakthrough in how voltage is measured. While other open fork testers detect a magnetic field to show ac current, FieldSense technology detects an electrical field. This field interacts with a reference signal created by the T6 tester, creating a voltage value on the tester’s display.

Who needs a T6 tester?

Commercial and light industrial electricians can use T6 Electrical Testers for most everyday measurements. These devices easily fit in your pocket, making them easy to access on the front-line for electricians of all industries.

* Voltage measurement requires capacitive path to ground, provided through user in most applications. Ground connection via test lead may be required in some situations.

Measure voltage up to 1000 V ac through the open fork, without test lead contact to live voltage.+ Without opening covers or removing wire nuts. On wires up to AWG 4/0 (120 mm2), carrying as much as 200 A. It will change your job. Safer. Faster. Easier.

Product Highlights

  • FieldSense technology for ac voltage, current and frequency measurement without making electrical contact to live voltage*
  • Simultaneous voltage and current display – shows all power supply measurements at a glance for efficient trouble shooting
  • 1 to 1000 V ac or dc (T6-1000)
  • 0 to 200 A ac
  • True-rms voltage and current
  • Resistance 1 Ω to 100 kΩ
  • Frequency measurement 45 Hz to 66 Hz
  • Works with wires up to AWG 4/0 (120 mm2) with a 17.8 mm jaw opening
  • HOLD button temporarily freezes the reading for easy viewing
  • Easy to read display with backlight
  • Accepts optional Fluke TPAK Magnetic Meter Hanger for convenient operation
  • Standard two-year warranty; extendable to 4 years through product registration within 45 days of purchase+

Tips: FieldSense Technology

Do not hold or touch wire you are testing during a measurement. Use the black probe to make the ground connection if:
  • wearing gloves or insulated footwear
  • standing on an insulated ladder
  • additional ground contact is required for the application

FieldSense measurement looks like this when properly grounded:

Correct Display
  • Display color turns green
  • Display shows a valid measurement >16 V rather than dashes or 0.0
  • shows for measurement ≥30 V
* Voltage measurement requires capacitive path to ground, provided through user in most applications. Ground connection via test lead may be required in some situations.
+ Register product online within 45 days of purchase to extend warranty to four years. See http://a.fluke.com/registration for details. Two-year additional warranty offer may be discontinued without notice
