Fluke PRV240FS Proving Unit
- Reduce your risk of shock and arc flash by validating the functionality of test tools without placing yourself in a potentially hazardous electrical environment.
- Prove functionality of the FieldSense measurement on the T6 electrical testers
- Source both ac and dc steady-state voltage (supplies 240 V dc/ac).
- Compatible with high impedance multimeters or clamp meters.
- Voltage is sourced through a central hub designed to test the T6 FieldSense open fork, as well as through recessed contacts that are activated when test probes are inserted to avoid accidental contact
- Includes TPAK magnetic hanging strap
- Long battery life—2000 tests per set of four AA batteries (10 second test average)
- SAFETY RATING: IEC61010-1, IEC61010-2-030
Product overview: Fluke PRV240FS Proving Unit
Designed for safety and compliance
Verify your test tool without unnecessary exposure to shock and arc flash. Using the PRV240FS reduces the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) when a known voltage source is not available for verification of your tester or multimeter before tests are performed*. Additionally, the PRV240FS also provides ac and dc voltages for other HiZ instruments in your tool box.
A single switch and a set of LEDs indicate functionality of both the FieldSense “no-test-lead” voltage measurement capability, plus standard ac and dc measurements with test leads. This unit is a simple-to-use solution for complying with TBT verification of your test tools.
*PPE is still needed for absence of voltage testing when appropriate.
“Test Before Touch”
Fluke’s PRV240FS allows you to “Test Before Touch” (TBT), which involves testing your T6 against a known live source before and after the actual measurement. This sequence verifies that your test tool is operating properly during the actual measurement.
