Product overview: Fluke 1550C FC 5 kV Digital Insulation Tester

Fluke 1550C 5 kV Insulation Tester makes data collection from insulation tests easy

The Fluke 1550C performs digital insulation testing up to 5 kV, and makes data collection easy through the Fluke Connect™ wireless app. Remote operation lets you spend as little time as possible in potentially hazardous zones. Real-time trending shows a live graph on your phone, rather than a hard-to-read set of changing values. And you can create reports quickly, simply using drag-and-drop – something you won’t find anywhere else. It’s the perfect tool for preventive or predictive maintenance programs designed to identify potential equipment failures before they occur. And it comes with a three-year warranty and CAT IV 600 V safety rating.

Specifications: Fluke 1550C FC 5 kV Digital Insulation Tester

Electrical Specifications
The tester's accuracy is specified for one year after calibration at operating temperatures of 0°C to 35°C. For operating temperatures outside the range (-20°C to 0°C and 35°C to 50°C), add ± .25% per °C, except on the 20% bands add ± 1% per °C.
