Fluke 1587 FC Insulation Multimeter

Manual- and auto-ranging digital insulation multimeter measures insulation resistance, current, voltage, capacitance, frequency, resistance, and temperature, and performs diode tests for testing line insulation on motors, generators, cables, and switchgear.

True RMS meter provides accurate readings when measuring linear or nonlinear loads where the current or voltage has an undistorted or distorted waveform.

Insulation test voltages of 50, 100, 250, 500, and 1000V and insulation measurement range of 0.01 megohms to 2 gigohms.

The low-pass filter blocks unwanted voltages when measuring AC voltage and AC frequency to provide accurate measurements on inverters and variable-frequency motor drives.

What is a fluke-1587 fc/wwg used for?

Measures AC/DC Voltage, DC Millivolts, AC/DC Milliamps, Resistance, and Continuity. Includes capacitance, diode test, temperature, min/max, frequency measurements, and insulation test smoothing reading.

What is the standard for insulation resistance testing?

As a rule of thumb, insulation resistance should be approximately one megohm per 1000 volts of working voltage, with a minimum of one megohm. (According to this rule, a 2400-volt motor should have an insulation resistance of at least 2.4 megohms.) However, each facility must set its own standards.
