Description

Fluke 1550C FC KIT 5kV Insulation Resistance Tester Kit

Product Details:

The Fluke 1550C performs digital insulation testing up to 5 kV, and makes data collection easy through the Fluke Connect™ wireless app. Remote operation lets you spend as little time as possible in potentially hazardous zones. Real-time trending shows a live graph on your phone, rather than a hard-to-read set of changing values. And you can create reports quickly, using pre-designed templates that you can customize with company logos. It’s the perfect tool for preventive or predictive maintenance programs designed to identify potential equipment failures before they occur. And it comes with a three-year warranty and CAT IV 600 V safety rating.

Key features:

  • Quickly configure, start and stop tests on the 1550C remotely, a safe distance away from any operating, energized equipment, using Fluke Connect and a smart phone
  • Real time trending gives you easy-to-see visual cues, rather than hard to read, rapidly changing values
  • Report creation using Fluke Connect desktop saves time and makes test results
  • Fluke Connect saves test results to the cloud for analysis and preventive maintenance
  • Makes data collection from insulation tests easy
  • Automatic calculation of Dielectric Absorption (DAR) and Polarization Index (PI) with no additional setup
  • Guard system eliminates the effect of surface leakage current on high-resistance measurements
  • Selectable test voltages in 50 V steps from 250 V to 1000 V, and 100 V steps above 1000 V
  • CAT III 1000 V, CAT IV 600 V safety rating
  • Warning function alerts the user that line voltage is present and gives the voltage reading up to 600 V AC or DC for increased user safety
  • Measurements can be stored in up to 99 memory locations, with each location assigned a unique, user defined, label for easy recall
  • Long battery life gives the user over 750 tests between charges
  • Large digital/analog LCD for easy viewing
  • Capacitance and leakage current measurement
  • Ramp function for breakdown testing
  • Resistance measurements up to 2 TΩ
  • Timer settings up to 99 minutes for timed tests
  • 3-year warranty

Why perform insulation testing?

The most important reason for testing insulation is to ensure public and personal safety. By performing a high DC voltage test between de-energised current-carrying (hot), earthed, and earthing conductors, you can eliminate the possibility of having a life-threatening short circuit or short to earth which could lead to a fire.

In addition, insulation testing is important to protect and prolong the life of electrical systems and motors. Periodic maintenance tests can provide valuable information about the state of deterioration and will help in predicting possible failure of the system. Correcting problems will result not only in a trouble-free system, but will also extend the operating life for a variety of equipment.

Insulation resistance testers can be used to determine the integrity of windings or cables in motors, transformers, switchgear, and electrical installations. The test method is determined by the type of equipment being tested and the reason for testing. Spot-reading/short time resistance tests can be used for low-capacitance equipment, while trending tests such as step voltage or dielectric-absorption tests can be used for time-dependent currents that will last for hours.

The International Electrical Testing Association (NETA) provides representative and minimum insulation values for various voltage ratings of equipment for use when manufacturer’s data is not available. Insulation testers are essential in any electrical system for proper and safe equipment operation per industry standards, IEEE Std 43-2000 (Recommended Practice for Testing Insulation Resistance of Rotating Machines), and other recognised organisations.

 

Why choose this kit?

Trying to decide on an insulation resistance tester? Not sure exactly which model, what features, or what output test voltage you need?

There are six things to consider when deciding on the best insulation resistance tester, including: What equipment needs to be tested? What are the voltage requirements? Where are the tests going to take place? What questions will an insulation resistance tester help me answer? What is the experience level of the technician performing the tests? What role does safety play in selecting a new tool?

Fluke has created the 1550C FC 5kV Digital Insulation Resistance Tester Kit with Industrial electricians, utility trouble-shooters, engineers and technicians in mind, to help maximise your productivity and help you solve problems faster and reduce downtime, all with significant savings over buying each product individually.

The Fluke 1550C, combined with the ir3000 FC Connector included in this kit and Fluke Connect App, are designed to improve worker safety and save time while conducting insulation on high-voltage equipment including switchgear, motors, generators, and cables. Fluke insulation testers can now conduct the entire range of test voltages specified in IEEE 43-2000 with a best-in-class, 3-year warranty, and CAT IV 600 V safety rating. With measurement storage, a PC interface, and the ability to store, share, and analyse measurements through Fluke Connect, the 1550C is the ideal tool for preventative or predictive maintenance programmes designed to identify potential equipment failures before they occur.

The Fluke Connect mobile app is an easy-to-use, advanced wireless system for capturing and trending anomalies for troubleshooting, commissioning, and preventative maintenance of insulation resistance applications
