Product overview: Fluke T5-600 Voltage, Continuity and Current Tester

The T5-600 Voltage Continuity and Current Tester is a versatile troubleshooting tool for up to 600 V environments. Use it to check voltage, continuity, and current with one compact tool. Just select volts, ohms, or current and the tester does the rest. Its OpenJaw™ current measurement lets you check current up to 100 A without breaking the circuit.

Detachable SlimReach™ test probes are customized for national electrical standards. Plus, its tough test leads accept optional accessories such as clips and specialty probes. The test leads stow neatly in the back of the tester, making it easy to carry in your tool pouch. Add the optional H5 holster and you can clip the T5-1000 onto your belt. For higher voltage applications check out the Fluke T5-1000.

Other useful capabilities:

  • Features a compact design with handy probe storage
  • Withstands a 10 ft. (3 m) drop
  • Includes detachable SlimReach™ probe tips that are customized for national electrical standards
  • Can stay connected much longer than solenoid type testers
  • Offers Auto-off mode to conserve battery life
  • Fits into an optional holster that attaches to a belt and neatly stows test leads

Reviews: Fluke T5-600 Voltage, Continuity and Current Tester

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value. A few shortcomings. This is my second t5-600. Love the light weight, multiple features (Amp clamp, vom). Higher resistance reading would be a plus, but I realize that Fluke doesn't want to eat into the market for it's other meters. My large Fluke meter has a lighted display. That would be awesome on the T5. Be warned: My old meter did not have detachable leads. I don't feel that feature is needed with this type of meter. If you put one of your probes in the socket in the back so you can test while holding the meter, it is very easy to get the probes in there so deep that once you try to remove them, they come unplugged from the leads. Mine would come unplugged every time. I called Fluke tech support and the tech got a T5 and was quickly able to recreate the problem. His solution: Try not to wedge them in too tight. :-( My solution: (super glue doesn't work) If you wrap a piece of electrical tape around plug where the lead connects, it makes it difficult to attach the probe, but it will stop coming apart each time you are finished using the meter. Come on Fluke, you make world class products. You can make this meter better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Them Up I sure wish the voltage reading would light up in dark places. It is hard to check voltages,for example in cealings.LED light sure would be helpfull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent! I bought this tester and it was money well spent. I don't think I will have reason to buy another tester for a long time. The settings are easy to use. I love troubleshooting with this tool. Thank you Fluke for an excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Use I work in noisy environments & put the meter up to my ear like a phone when I'm checking continuity. This meter is compact, lightweight & durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!! We purchased this tester a few months back and it works great. After the first purchase, we ended up buying one for everyone in the department.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall a good rugged tester Have been using this tester for several months and works great for ac/dc voltages and testing continuity. I would give it 5 stars if the tester could read higher resistance values. When I work on fire alarm systems, they use resistors up to 15k ohms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and simple to use I purchased the T5-600 to do annual checkups on my HVAC system. The current measuring capability of the T5-600 works great for measuring the compressor and fan motor currents. The open jaw head is compact and makes measurements a breeze. The unit is compact, rugged, and simple to use. Great for the professional or DIY homeowner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality for what you pay. I bought this item last year and it has been quite a simple troubleshooting tool for me in the automated packaging industry. My only complaint would be that the leads that the meter comes with are quite large and make reading small terminal voltages a little tricky. I do like the built in "Forks" for current readings so I don't have to carry a traditional clamp attachment for AC current readings when I travel.
