Description

Fluke 1625-2 GEO Earth Ground Tester


 

Fluke 1625-2 improves upon the basic functionality of the original 1625 to create Fluke’s most comprehensive solution for testing earth ground yet!

 

Designed for use both indoors and outdoors thanks to IP56 rating, the Fluke 1625-2 is compact, handheld and can be used with everything from soft to hard soil thanks to its specially-designed ground stakes. It comes with built-in internal memory which stores up to 1500 individual records and this information can be sent to PC via the use of a dedicated USB port.

 

The 1625-2 can test practically every aspect of earth using its multiple testing modes. It can perform 3 and 4 pole fall of potential earth resistance loop testing, 4 pole soil resistivity testing, selective earth ground testing using 1 clamp and stakeless earth ground rod testing using 2 clamps.

 

Fluke 1625-2 Earth Tester Key Features:

– Automatic frequency control function – identifies existing interference and chooses an applicable measurement frequency to minimise its effects

– R* measurement – calculates earth ground impedance at 55Hz to accurately reflect the earth ground resistance that a fault-to earth ground would see

– Adjustable limits – speed up your tests by setting your own parameters

– 3 and 4 pole fall of potential earth resistance loop testing

– 4 pole soil resistivity testing

– Selective earth ground testing using 1 clamp

– Stakeless earth ground rod testing using 2 clamps

– Rated for use outdoors (IP56)

– Rugged carrying case protects the tester at all times from all common forms of stress

– USB data storage and transfer (1500 record internal memory)

What’s Included?
