Fluke, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the new Fluke TL175 TwistGuard™ Test Leads, the only test leads on the market with adjustable length test tips for use in changing measurement situations.
The patented extendable tip sheath meets new electrical safety requirements to reduce tip exposure while providing the versatility needed for most measurements By simply twisting the test lead the user can change the exposed probe tip length to anything between 4mm and 19mm. The leads conform to the latest safety standard EN61010-031: 2008, which became effective on 1st March, 2011.
The new Fluke TL175 TwistGuard Test Leads offer WearGuard™ lead wire wear indication. They are covered in two layers of silicone insulation. The inner contrasting colour is exposed when the leads are nicked, scuffed, or otherwise damaged and in need of replacement. The double insulated silicone layers also withstand high temperatures yet remain flexible for use in cold temperatures.
The Fluke TL175 TwistGuard™ Test Leads are manufactured to provide extra heavy strain relief on both probe-end and plug-end. The universal input plugs are compatible with all instruments that accept standard 4mm shrouded banana plugs. For use up to 10A, the electrical safety ratings are CAT II 1000 V, CAT III 1000 V / CAT IV 600 V depending on the tip length – the safety rating is indicated for the tip length being used.
The Fluke TL175E offers removable 4mm lantern tips for added versatility.
