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.

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

Reviews: Fluke T6-1000 Electrical Tester

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time saver Had my T6-1000 for about 3 months and it rolls in each and every job with me every day for initial troublshooting. My only complaint is the meter did not come with a connector for the ground and the t-pak magnetic hanger. For what it costs it should be a complete kit that’s the only reason I could not give it 5 stars. Anyone reading this buy the holster for your belt right off the bat, This is definitely a goto meter for volts and amps. Get in and get the diagnostics down right off the bat. I’m an HVAC tech / Gas Fitter Natural Gas first responder so sometimes I get false alarms and it’s customers faulty equipment so for me this helps me test volts and amperage without having to take apart things and get the job figured out quicker ! Fluke of your reading this keep up the good work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing new technology. Great safety improvement! Simply amazing. Live AC voltage, current, and frequency measurement with no contact even at zero current. No contact means reduced shock and arc flash hazards. Standard meters are fine, but testing without contact is much safer. I've just started to use it, but so far it works great. I worked for many years in plant maintenance and power distribution and now I train new workers. First impressions are that this is a tool that every electrical worker should have, particularly anyone that has to test and troubleshoot energized circuits. I'd still do the contact probe voltage test (which the T6 can also do) for lock out absence of voltage testing, but definitely use the non contact test for live troubleshooting and running measurements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy and impressive! Bought this simply out of curiosity. I still love my T5 fluke but was very interested in the non-contact voltage tester. So far I have had 0 accuracy issues and have found the voltage tester a loy.more handy than I thought I would. As usual another phenomenal product from fluke! Buy with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool ! Bon outil ! Some body needed my T% more than I so he stole it from me. I had to choses between T5 or T6, I chosen a T6-1000 and I love it ! Very handy and the backlighting is great. Also the touchless sensin feature is great. Once again FLUKE came out with a nice features and as usual it is a very sturdy tester and I feel secure using there produts . Good job ! Benoit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Features and Quality I bought this meter last week I was very exited to try this meter and it’s new features. I’ve always owned a T5-1000 and I’ve always wanted the features available with the meter. The backlight is great, the larger Jaw and ability to read up to 200 amps is a huge advantage and the Field sense option is very handy I’m still testing that and trying to find the most accurate way to take a reading so far I think you get a more accurate reading with the probe to ground over the finger touch pad on the back. The meter is well built, and I believe it we’ll be able to take abuse from the job conditions. I have yet to be disappointed with any Fluke product and I will continue to rely on Flukes quality and reliability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome meter. I bought the meter about a month ago. Pre ordered it when I heard about it. Very handy. Helps with services calls. Not haveing to pull the dead front to check voltage when needed. Faster, safer, services calls. Only down side is after a few weeks. My reading are higher. Voltage is 20volts to 25volts higher when I use the forks and me as the ground then when I use the ground probe the ground.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative features I have been hesitant to purchase the T6 due to the many negative reviews and all the users saying to wait for the next generation. As a commercial electrician and a self admitted toolaloholic (addicted to buying new tools) I decided to take the plunge. I must admit so far I have not experienced any of the issues many of the users have complained about. Once I figured how to utilize the "fieldsense" correctly, the readings are accurate. In the beginning I confirmed the results of the T6-1000 with my Fluke 376 just for good measure. It was spot on and reliable each time. The back light is definitely a nice feature as is the ability to read both current and voltage together at the same time. My only gripe is within the package containing the T6 as well as in the features description it says it is compatible with the TPAC hanging kit. That is false. My unit was manufactured in September 2017 and there is no way it is compatible. Whats up with that Fluke?? Also in my opinion there really should be an alligator clip included with the meter considering a solid ground connection is needed for the fieldsense to work properly. With that being said, I am still satisfied with the purchase. The T6-1000 is replacing the very used and abused T5 in my tool bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Meter Hands down amazing. It's new technology meaning it's different. Once you figure out how to use it properly it's an amazing troubleshooting meter. I've had absolutely no problems with accuracy after I figured out how to use it correctly. I would love to see phase rotation on the next go around. I could care less that it doesn't read microfareds and probably not the best for residential. I use it all the time in commercial and industrial!! Revolutionary!!
