Fluke 393 FC CAT III 1500 V True-rms Clamp Meter with iFlex
The Fluke® 393 FC CAT III 1500 V True-rms Clamp Meter with iFlex is the world's only 1500 V CAT III, IP54
rated, thin jaw clamp meter. With its CAT III 1500 V / CAT IV 600 V safety rating, the 393 FC provides
exceptional safety for work in dc environments up to 1500 volts, like solar arrays, wind power, electric railways,
and datacenter battery banks for uninterruptible power supplies. The thin jaw allows it to be used in combiner
boxes, inverters, and tight spaces making it ideal for solar energy applications.
The meter measures up to 1500 V dc, 1000 V ac, and up to 999.9 A dc or ac through the clamp jaw. The
included iFlex flexible current probe extends ac current measurements up to 2500 amps. When measuring ac
current, the iFlex probe can be twisted through extremely small spaces giving technicians access to cables that
would otherwise be difficult or impossible to clamp a probe around.
* IP54 rating for dust and water making it ideal for work outdoors on solar arrays and wind power systems.
* DC power measurement, showing readings in kVA.
* Audio and Visual Polarity to ensure photovoltaic panels are properly installed with the help of an audio
beep and a light to indicate correct polarity.
* Visual Continuity that provides a bright green indicator light in the display for working in dark and noisy
environments.
* Logging, sharing and reporting of test results via Fluke Connect so┼┐tware.
Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter
The new Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter has been designed from the ground up to simplify the installation,
commissioning, and troubleshooting of photovoltaic arrays by measuring irradiance, temperature, inclination,
and direction of the solar array with a single handheld tool.
The simple user interface, instantaneous solar irradiation measurements, and built-in temperature sensor make it
easy to meet IEC 62446-1 requirements for testing, documenting, and maintaining photovoltaic systems.
Additionally, technicians can quickly measure and document roof and site orientation, pitch, and panel tilt while
surveying, installing, or adjusting an installation.
Photovoltaic system design and surveying - to find the expected production at a site, technicians must
determine the solar resource while taking shading into account. The Fluke IRR1-SOL measures the actual solar
irradiance (Watts/m2) and shading at the site to develop a baseline.
Measuring - once the system is installed, the IRR1-SOL ensures it is operating as designed by taking the critical
measurements needed when determining its power output.
Comparing and diagnosing - even when installed correctly, a photovoltaic system may not be producing the
expected electrical output. The IRR1-SOL confirms the correct amount of irradiance energy is being received to
generate the DC voltage that is fed into the inverter.
