Working in cramped electrical boxes and trying to find a safe metallic contact points is often challenging. The Fluke T6-600 Electrical Tester with FieldSense™ technology, lets you quickly and safely take measurements by sliding the open fork over a conductor, without the need for test leads. The T6-600 works with wires up to AWG 4/0 (120 mm2) with a 17.8 mm jaw opening
How FieldSense™ technology works
FieldSense™ technology is a breakthrough in how voltage is measured. Other open fork testers detect a magnetic field to show AC current. FieldSense™ technology detects an electrical field, which interacts with a reference signal created by the T6 tester, which shows the measurement value on the tester’s display.
Tips on using FieldSense technology
- Do not hold or touch wire you are testing during a measurement.
- Use the black probe to make the ground connection if you are wearing gloves, insulated footwear or standing on an insulated ladder
The electrical tester offers a variety of measurement options giving you an all-in-one troubleshooting tool. Measure true rms voltage and current from 0 to 200 A AC or 1 to 600 V AC or DC. You can also gather resistance measurement from 1 Ω to 2000 Ω. With the easy-to-read backlit display, you can keep see your work in dark environments and keep your most recent measurement on the screen with the HOLD button for easy viewing. The T6-600 also accepts optional Fluke TPAK Magnetic Meter Hanger for convenient operation.
