Product overview: Fluke T5-1000 Voltage, Continuity and Current Tester

Measure current up to 100 A without breaking the circuit with OpenJaw™ design. The T5-1000 Electrical Tester is a versatile troubleshooting tool to carry to every job site. Use it to check voltage, continuity, and current–all with one compact tool.

How to use the T5-1000

Just select volts, ohms, or current and the tester does the rest. The electrical tester auto-selects between AC and DC voltage up to 1000 V.

Plus, the OpenJaw™ design allows for fast and easy current measurements without needing to make metallic contact, just slide a wire into the open fork. The continuity beeper offers a quick go/no-go tests, resistance measurements to 1000 Ω.

The electrical tester comes with detachable Slim Reach probe tips so you can easily work in tight spaces. Or hand free work when you use the test lead holder to make the meter an “extended handle” for the probe.

Key safety features

An integrated protection circuit allows the tester to stay connected to a voltage source longer than a solenoid tester. The T5-1000 Electrical Tester also boasts:

A CAT III 1000V, CAT IV 600 V rating

Withstands a 10 ft. (3 m) drop.

The T5-1000 has and Auto-off mode to conserve battery life. The unit fits into an optional holster that attaches to a belt and neatly stows test leads.

Fluke T5-1000 vs T6-1000

The T5-1000 uses the OpenJaw™ design to measure current without metallic contact, just slide the wire in the open fork and the T5 will do the rest. It also measures voltage and continuity with the test leads. The T6-1000 (https://www.fluke.com/en-us/product/electrical-testing/basic-testers/fluke-t6-1000) is designed to use FieldSense™ technology to display both current and voltage simultaneously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from T5 1000 Easy to use nice tool to have on my tool bag - thank you fluke

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Probably Refurbished Packaging was opened and the meter looked like it had been used. It had had black residue in the continuity opening. Probably from cable jacketing. All it’s functions work properly so far. A little disappointed knowing it’s probably refurbished though and I chose to purchase it directly through fluke instead of Amazon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trusted product As an apprentice journeyman electricians always carried the fluke brand and I didn't know why, but I soon learned that it is because the fluke brand is simply the best there is. I love my fluke T5-1000, it is a very reliable tester and something that every electrician should carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best meter hands down! I bought this meter about a two years ago and I work in some very harsh conditions, anywhere from windturbines and big outside industrial construction jobs to commercial and even residential jobs. This tool is hands down one of the best meters for most applications! It's simplistic and extremely durable! Also it has never failed to perform. I recommend this meter to every electrician I come in contact with and will continue to do so! Thanks Fluke for a great experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have used a T5-600 daily for 10 plus years. It recently died and I replaced it with a T5-1000. 10+ years for a $100 meter is remarkable. These units are bulletproof. Rugged, reliable, and safe to use. I use it for 90% of my testing needs around the plant.
