Product overview: Fluke 88V Deluxe Automotive Multimeter

The Fluke 88V has improved measurement functions, trouble-shooting features and accuracy to solve more problems on conventional and hybrid vehicles. The 88V is the most powerful automotive multimeter ever offered by Fluke. In addition to having all standard multimeter features like the ability to measure voltage, current, continuity, and resistance, the 88V can perform diode test and pulse width measurements.

This meter can take current measurements up to 20 A for 30 seconds and 10 A continuously. The optional magnetic hanger lets you attach the meter to most steel surfaces for easy set-up and viewing. The 88V is designed to be used in high energy environments like those found on hybrid vehicles.

Measures

  • Resistance, continuity and diode test
  • Millisecond pulse width measurements for fuel injectors
  • Frequency to 200 kHz and % duty cycle
  • Measure up to 1000 V AC and DC
  • Measure current up to 10 A, 20 A for up to 30 seconds
  • 4 ½ digits for precise measurements
  • RPM measurements with optional inductive pickup
  • Temperature measurements with optional temperature probe

Reviews: Fluke 88V Deluxe Automotive Multimeter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just an absolutely great meter I have had my 88v for about 10 years now. It's been dropped from ladders, gone thru sitting in extreme heat of Nevada sun to transmitter towers on mountains 10000' middle of winter.... It's been exposed to over current and voltage on resistance setting and it still holds accurate readings with the only issue I've ever had is when moisture got into the test lead section. Causing it to think it was in current test. Plus this meter has just about any measurement one could ever need to make except inductance. If it had that it would be the near perfect meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many features for automotive I received the 88V for Christmas and it was a gift for my participation in an automotive repair internship. Using the meter for a few tasks really showed me the many scientific features– for example the water temperature of the swimming pool was taken to compare the results with a weather service. Verifying good electrical grounds on vehicle components, and checking the resistance of installed automotive wiring makes diagnosing and installing more accurate. Protecting the meter seems easy with the yellow bumper case. There are many accessories that can be used like the temperature reading probes, direct current reading meter clamp, alligator clamp probes, thin-wire precision probes and probes that can be inserted into the wire by needling the probe-needle through the wires conduit. Personally, the meter has been used only a few times but it has performed very well. The jobs that the meter was used for are okay. The display is large and easy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DMM!!! This is the best multimeter that I have ever used. I have been in the automotive industry for 25 years. I have worked everywhere from independent service shops to dealerships to automotive manufacturers. I have used many different types of DMMs none can compare with the fluke 88. It is easy to use, nice large read out. Perfect for all automotive test. I have owned this one for 20 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most useful tool ever! The Fluke 88V has been and continues to be the best investment I have ever made! Also the most reliable piece of equipment that I own - over 10 years of constant use and no problems ever. You won't find quality like this very often!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST METER HANDS DOWN Purchased my fluke a year ago or so after constantly having errors in readings on my other automotive tool brand meter. A false reading can really screw you up when diagnosing critical voltage systems in the automotive industry. I love the trust I have with this meter. The illuminated screen helps in tight spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is as durable as they come. I have been an auto mechanic for the last 25 years. My last Fluke 88 had finally been acting up to the point that it was annoying. I called them and read off my serial number and the rep told me it was purchased in 1990 and that parts for this meter are no longer avail. I never even hesitated to buy a new one. 22 yrs old! Think about that........used in one of the harshest enviroments, humidity, heat, cold, snow, etc and it lasted 22yrs. Kudos to Fluke! What a product!
