How is FL177 & FL179 different from FL175?

FL177, FL179 and FL 175 all are different models of Fluke 170 series digital multimeter. Due to some additional characteristic all fluke multimeter differ from each other. Following of its characteristic are:

  1. Measures True RMS voltages and currents.
  2. Provide higher basic accuracy of 0.09%.
  3. Provides display with analog bar graph and backlight.


Why FL179 multimeter get preffered over FL177 multimeter?

If we want to measure temperature we have to attach some external device to multimeter but the latest version of this series i.e. Fluke 179 True RMS multimeter measures temperature quickly because of its in built temperature measurement characteristic, that’s why we prefer this multimeter. It measures Temperature in both Fahrenheit and Celsius.


Why FL179 called a True RMS Digital multimeter?

As we all know, when we have to measure an ideal AC signal i.e. a true sine wave, many situations cause imperfect and deformed waveforms. While measuring these waves with a meter which is not True RMS (Root mean square), the result obtained shows very inaccurate readings and for industries accuracy is the most important factor. That’s why, we prefer Fluke 179 True RMS Digital multimeter because it is True RMS multimeter and displays accurate readings from a series of complex mathematical algorithms. It is the most demandable product of professional technicians in the market.


Adaptability of Fluke 179 True RMS Digital multimeter

Fluke 179 True RMS Digital multimeter is very much adaptable as you can use it anywhere, anytime whenever you need it. In loud, high energy, messy, crowded, high places wherever you want, it can perform its job very accurately. You can blindly trust this meter for your accurate work.
