Wireless test system handles up to 10 simultaneous measurements
04 December 2012
Fluke has introduced the Fluke CNX wireless system, a set of test tools designed to wirelessly connect multiple measurement modules and send simultaneous readings to a master device at a distance of up to 20m.
Said to be suited to use by industrial maintenance technicians, electricians, control technicians and facilities maintenance technicians, the rugged, customisable tool set allows users to choose various measurement modules based on their specific needs.
At the core of the Fluke CNX wireless system is a CAT III 1000V/CAT IV 600V multimeter with a screen that displays its readings along with live readings from up to three other measurement modules. For more complex troubleshooting, users can view live measurements from up to 10 modules simultaneously on a computer equipped with the CNX PC Adapter.
The modules, which include AC voltage, AC current clamp, iFlex AC current clamp, and K-Type temperature units, can take live measurements or log up to 65,000 sets of data. Logged data can be saved to a computer in .csv format.
The Fluke CNX system allows users to place modules in hazardous or awkward places and then watch the readings from a safe distance. For example, a technician can de-energise a panel, connect voltage or current modules to all three phases, close and re-energise the panel, and then safely read the measurements outside the arc flash zone.
