Digital clamp meters recalled

Fluke Corporation is voluntarily recalling certain Digital Clamp Meters that were manufactured between Sept. 1, 2010 and Oct. 31, 2012.

02/01/2013


 

Fluke 373, 374, 375, and 376 Digital Clamp Meters are being voluntarily recalled due to the printed circuit assembly. They may not be properly fastened to the test lead input jack, which may result in inaccurate voltage readings, including a low or no voltage reading on a circuit energized with a hazardous voltage, presenting a shock, electrocution, or thermal burn hazard. This voluntary recall involves Fluke Digital Clamp Meters with the model and serial numbers listed below. Any serial number preceded or followed by the letter “R” is NOT affected by this recall notice.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
