Our product experts are here to help you find the right solution for your application!

The Fluke 1587 FC Insulation Multimeters combine a digital insulation tester with a full-featured, True-RMS digital multimeter in a single compact, handheld unit, which provides maximum versatility for both troubleshooting and preventative maintenance.

The Fluke 1587 FC Insulation Multimeter adds four powerful new diagnostic functions through the Fluke Connect® Measurements app, including:
1. PI/DAR timed ratio tests with TrendIt™ graphs identifies moisture and contaminated insulation problems faster
2. Memory storage through Fluke Connect eliminates writing down results, reduces errors and saves data for historical tracking over time
3. Temperature compensation through app for establishing accurate baselines and relevant historical comparisons
4. Historical tracking and trending of assets identifies degradation over time, allows real-time decisions to be made in the field with Fluke Connect® Assets

• Safety first. Connect the insulation tester then keep yourself out of harm's way by monitoring your test measurements remotely.
• Prove your job is done right by quickly seeing and sharing insulation resistance test results wirelessly with your smartphone.
• Quickly find problems by saving and comparing measurements over time on a wireless device.
