Product overview: Fluke T6-1000, 1000V AC Electrical Voltage Tester

Fluke T6 is the perfect “all-in-one” electrical voltage tester for troubleshooting, maintenance and service.

Troubleshooting electrical systems can be time-consuming and potentially dangerous because it requires access to metallic contact points.

The latest Fluke T6 Electrical Voltage and Current Testers make it possible to take reliable true-rms measurements in crowded junction boxes or along conductors with inaccessible endpoints, saving time, minimizing potential errors, and greatly reducing the possibility of arc flash. The rugged electrical voltage testers are 1000V CAT III, 600V CAT IV safety rated and feature an easy to read display with a backlight.

See how easy it is to make FieldSense measurements

Now, with Fluke’s FieldSense technology, you can use this fluke continuity tester to take measurements quickly and easily by sliding the open fork over a conductor to see the voltage level without the need for test leads*.

How to use your new electrical voltage tester Fluke T6

Learn how to use your new T6 with revolutionary “Field Sense” technology and get the best of your continuity tester. Here are some hints to keep in mind when using it. A voltage tester and a current tester at the same time.

How does FieldSense Technology work?

Measures a voltage signal in reference to earth via the hand of the user by a capacitive sensor without any electrical contact or galvanic connection, fully isolated!

The sensor area of the tester should be located close to the measured signal on a live conductor. In this case the hand and body of the user provides a connection to earth. The electrical field (voltage) and the magnetic field (current) is picked up. When there is a missing earth connection an earth symbol in the display of the T6 shows up.

In some cases, test leads have to be used: When the hand or the human body is isolated to earth (e.g. safety gloves) or if the human body has no earth reference (e.g. upper floors in wooden houses) the earth reference must be provided by connecting the black test lead (COM) to earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping up with the times Such a pleasure to get touchless volts, hertz and amps. The new duel reading display is also nice. Keeping up with technology - thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Idiot proof This volt meter is everything I expected. Simple dial, simple design, love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everyday trouble shooting Use thus on a daily basis. Field sense gives you volts and amps with exposing the joints. A real time saver!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Equal to the T5, but lacking. The T6-1000 works as well as the T5-1000 that I have used for 20 years in all the features and regards that are the same between the two meters. However, the no contact voltage detecting feature is not consistent nor accurate in determining whether a circuit is hot or not. I have always carried a Fluke 2AC in my breast pocket and continue to do so. The Fluke 2AC is not complicated or multi featured. It detects voltage with a red light as an indicator, period. No sound, no other meanings. If you have a red light, you have power, period. The T6-1000 was as pricy and I splurged on the upgrade, in retrospect, I would recommend sticking with the Fluke T5-1000 as the added features are not all that they are cracked up to be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fluke T6-1000 It's great to have a test instrument that can measure voltage & current simultaneously, while not being fearful of an arching situation. Safety is perhaps the greatest advantage of using this tool. My only complaint so far is not understanding why I consistently get different DC voltage readings, depending on the polarity of the test leads. For ex., reading -9v vs +8v on a 9v battery and -29v vs +27v on a DC power supply. Why should the polarity of the test leads matter? I get identical DC readings regardless of test lead polarity when using my standard Fluke DDM. Do I have a faulty T6-1000?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from buy the t5 I have owned it for a year now the field sense is dangerously unreliable all other features work very well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is this T6-1000 supporting True-RMS? I would like to know is this T6-1000 (and T6-600) supporting True-RMS or Averaging only?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does everything it says it will do It does everything that it says it will do, and it hasn't broken in the 3 years i've been abusing it. Good enough for me.
