An advanced family of clamp meters, designed to meet every requirement for testing and maintaining electrical systems, industrial equipment and controls, and commercial and industrial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment is being introduced by Fluke Corp. on Sept. 27. Features emphasize flexibility, safety and performance. The test tools include:

  • The Fluke 381 Remote Display True-rms AC/DC Clamp Meter, a full-featured meter with the industry’s first detachable display;
  • Fluke 376 True-rms AC/DC Clamp Meter – designed for testing large industrial motors and other high current applications in the toughest industrial environments. The Fluke 381 and Fluke 376 are shipped with the new Fluke iFlex flexible current probe;
  • The Fluke 374 and 375 True-rms AC/DC Clamp Meters measure both AC and DC current. The Fluke 375 is designed for use with common motors and drives below 600A. It has a low pass filter and the ability to measure mV DC. The Fluke 374 measures AC and DC current, important for security systems, basic motors and uninterruptible power supply systems;
  • Fluke 373 True-rms AC Clamp Meter – General purpose clamp meter said to offer durability and accuracy; and
  • Fluke iFlex Flexible Current Probes expand the measurement range of compatible Fluke meters to 2500 A AC with ultimate measurement flexibility. The large coil reaches around large conductors and fits between tightly-packed cables. A six-foot cord allows measurement at a distance for easier viewing.

Each meter is improved with thinner, smaller jaws for easier use inside crowded equipment cabinets, large backlit displays, true-rms standard and improved overmolding for easier handling and improved survival if dropped; higher safety ratings have improved, up to Category IV.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
