Today, I will show you how to make
measurements with the Fluke T5. This comes in two different styles. We have a T5-600 which measure up to 600 volts ac and the T5-1000, which of course will measure up to 1000 volts ac. Let’s start off by making a continuity measurement. All you
do is touch your test leads together; showing you that you do have continuity.
You can also measure resistance up to a thousand ohms. To take a current
measurement, simply move the dial position to measure current and now you
can slide your open jaw design around your current source and right there
we’re reading 1.7 amps ac. To take a voltage measurement, it will auto-range to
either DC or AC. So move the dial position to measure DC volts. And, what
I’m going to do is take advantage of one of the lead slots. This will allow me to
take a measurement on my battery pack here and there we see 8 volts DC. To
take an AC measurement, all I do is take my probe tips, and I can place them
directly into the socket and now I am measuring 118 volts AC. So, the T5 series
from Fluke – very easy to use, very versatile, and best of all, it can fit
right in your pocket.
