New insulation resistance testers deliver accuracy and speed in solar PV applications

Fluke, a global manufacturer of electronic test and measurement tools and software, has launched two portable and lightweight (1.3 kg) Insulation Resistance Testers for fast, accurate and reliable testing up to 2500 V (DC).

Portable testers offer fast, accurate and reliable testing to 2500 V.

The high-voltage 1535 and 1537 Insulation Resistance Testers are ideal for industrial electricians, maintenance technicians, electrical engineers and field service engineers looking to simplify frontline troubleshooting and improve productivity. The insulation testers deliver equally rapid and stable resistance measurements in many settings including solar PV installations enabling users to cover greater workloads with a single tool.

Product features

  • Long battery life: up to 6500 measurements at 250 V or 1300 at 250
  • Flexibility: test voltages are user selectable and adjustable
  • Ramp function: ideal for industrial or solar PV applications
  • Resistance measurements up to 500 GΩ: on small circuits or high-voltage systems,
  • Measurements stored: for later review or PC transfer (1537 only)
  • User-friendly: intuitive interface

Says Hans-Dieter Schuessele, Application & Technology Expert and Standardization Manager EMEA, Fluke: “With these high-voltage 1535 and 1537 Insulation Resistance Testers, operators now only need to use a single device to test a wider range of applications than before in the knowledge that they will always get rapid, stable and reliable results.

“The new testers put the user in control when carrying out vital maintenance work, whether in industrial and solar PV applications, and help to improve the productivity of electricians and contractors through a range of valuable features.”
