View Full Version : Fluke 116 question
07-23-2011, 12:32 AM
I just bought the 116/322 combo kit and is it ok to leave the magnetic holder in place all the time? Just wondering if the magnet will mess with the electronics if its pressed against the meter while stored in the case for long periods of time.

I don't think you have to worry about it. You can ask fluke on their talk forum or eevblog ask Dave Jones. He is an electronics design engineer who rates multimeters on youtube. The amprobe 34xra I used to use rode with me in my truck for 3 years with the magnet on the back' it always worked just fine.

Ive had the 116's with the magnet in at all times for over 2 years and still as accurate as its ever been:cheers:

I have the 116 w/magnet and it hasn't had any problems.
