Product overview: Fluke 87V Industrial Multimeter

The Fluke 87V Industrial Multimeter provides the resolution and accuracy to efficiently troubleshoot motor drives, plant automation, power distribution, and electromechanical equipment - even in loud, high-energy, and high-altitude locations. The 87V is designed so you can work more efficiently.

  • Easy-access door for fast battery changes without breaking the calibration seal
  • Analog bar graph for fast changing or unstable signals
  • Large digit display with bright, two-level backlight for easier reading in low light
  • Touch Hold keeps readings on display even after removing probes

The 87V lets you identify complex electrical problems fast. It supports accurate measurements on VFDs using a low-pass filter. The meter also captures intermittents as fast as 250 µS using Peak Capture. High-frequency, high-energy noise generated by large drive systems is blocked from your measurements with specially designed shielding.

Built to highest safety standards

All the inputs in the 87V are updated to the third edition of the EN 61010-1 to CAT III 1000 V and CAT IV 600 V. The meter is designed to withstand spikes of more than 8000 V. You also benefit from an audible Input Alert warning if the test leads are placed in the incorrect input jacks for the measurement being made.

Removable holster with built in test lead and probe storage for convenience

The 87V has a removeable holster that also holds a test probe during testing for easier viewing. Relative mode lets you remove test lead resistance, improving accuracy of low-resistance measurements. To make your life even easier, the 87V fits into an optional magnetic hanger for easy set-up and viewing while freeing your hands for other tasks.

Additional measurement features

The Fluke 87V is designed and built in the U.S. and comes with a lifetime warranty.

Reviews: Fluke 87V Industrial Multimeter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great meter I've had same 87 for over 10 years. Been dropped off ladders, leads getting caught on door handles where leads get ripped out of their sockets and various other types of abuse. Now I lost it. It's like losing my right hand. I'm a fire alarm tech. Best meter there is. Conductance feature is the best for finding those pesky intermittent grounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tip top I wanted the dmm with unparalleled accuracy and reliability of the Fluke 87. Its the last meter I'll buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 87V because the 289 isn't a good choice. Although our use case is Electronic R&D I choose the 87 V, an industrial meter, over the 289. Yes, I could use the better precision of the 289 but the 87 V has a better reputation, longer battery life and 289's logging features don't work with Linux and are too cumbersome anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality is degrading for the last few years... My copy was produced in 2019 and the quality of external parts(holster, dmm case, knob) is not so good as it was before. Screen lens has tiny black specks inside of it(I've checked both sides carefully, they are inside that transparent polymer!). External plastic and rubber parts shows various flashes... And the most "exciting" part is that Fluke support(US and EU) ignores my messages...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent feature rich multimeter I have purchased my first Fluke multimeter in 2016 which is Fluke 87-V and I am really happy with my purchase. This DMM is excellent feature rich and I use its most of the features. I have purchased it for my workbench for my electronics repair work. This multimeter is absolutely accurate and reliable for serious electronics engineers and repair technicians. I have repaired lots of complicated electronics equipments using this DMM. I've found that all over the world reputated industrial electronics repair companies using this 87-V model for their high tech electronics labs and workstations. I have found that diode test voltages of this DMM is very sufficient for all types of IGBT modules or single IGBT, MOSFET and other Transistors and Diode testing. Nanosiemense Conductance function also I use most for checking of components leakage test. And I'm really happy that this function is very useful for checking Diode, Transistors, FET, Mosfet and other semiconductors leakage resistance test. However I didn't find any video on internet for this useful feature but mentioned in user manual of this DMM model. I have found that I can test shorted component in circuit rail with the help of mV scale and external power supply hookup to shorted rail. Other all features and functions are also very accurate and useful as well in this DMM. Hidden features of this DMM also really useful specially 2 REL function where I can easily monitor the offset values of any specific measurement for example; if checking any voltage drifting in higher or lower range (offset value) I can simply press relative button and meter display shows 0 and once measurement starts it will show any drifting value positive side or negative side from that values. I use this function in resistance measurement mode also for testing variable resistors like volume or pot for any jumps or intermittent skipping in viper terminal of them. Min/Max/Avg mode also great and accurate also useful for recording measurements over time. All and all this multimeter is awesome and preferable for all of those who are troubleshooting and repairing delicate electronics equipments. I have purchased Fluke 117 and Fluke 325 Clamp meter also after satisfied with Fluke performance.
