Looks like mine is going in...
Thanks for the heads up.
I saw you're in Canada and you mentioned the SC56 specifically, great meter, but if you will be working on any 575V equipment - don't bother. I haven't used the HS36, so I can't comment...
Then there aren't many SC56s here, or they're all going to residential only techs. (I purchased my meter online, couldn't find one locally at the time.)
Yes, all commercial for me.
I had brought this to your attention when I first came across this, but never heard anything further from your office.
I'm in Canada, nothing special with the equipment, typical...
Not really interested in the wireless, but I'm wondering if you fixed the "OL" with anything over 600V?
I loved the SC56, but it didn't get much use because of that little issue.
You should be able to calibrate this... But it's not a pot.
I think you calibrate to known values. There is a manual just on the calibration, you should be able to get it from the Fluke site.
I'm a TomTom fan, haven't really had an issue with directions. I like their menus/options a lot better.
So what I just found out is that over 600V, the meter reads "OL"
From the specs:
Overload Protection: 600VDC or 600VAC rms unless otherwise stated
Well that doesn't work at all. The majority...
It is definitely hard to find anything locally. And if you do find it... the prices can be insane at times.
I've bought both the SC56 and Fluke 376 from ebay recently. Both new, in box. I don't...
I said room temp.
Again... you have a hot aisle and a cold aisle. One is 60F and one is 90F, what's the room ambient? ;)
Zero, how can you go from 1 post saying you need a hot and cold aisle... to "room temp of 68-71 degrees". As your previous post implied, room temp isn't considered in modern server rooms.
I thought that swivel head seemed a little gimmicky at first... but after using it just once or twice, seems helpful.
I use one like this:
I just got a SC56 tonight, first Fieldpiece product I've bought. Have used Fluke stuff for years. First impression, feels solid.
Seems well built, circuitry seems decent, but some stuff... meh....
Is the ATC3 still available? Can't really come across it anywhere, even online.
Seems to be sold out or discontinued.
What sensors do you guys use for these? I just recently came across the fluke clamp ons and want one, or something similar.
The fluke form seems like it'd be easier to get in places than the...
Inrush has proven to be useful a few times. Transformer inrush was actually causing blown fuses, this helped find which component it was.
The internal temps is actually pretty vital, but I bet it's way below what is required. Some of these IT people really make me scratch my head. I bet if they checked the specs of their equipment, it...
Gauges look nice, not so much on the manifold. Would like to have a look at the set in person.
It's actually a usb to 485 adapter. So it's not like I'm going USB to Serial to 485.
But all this talk of timing seems like it could be my issue. Will check it out when I get a chance, thanks.
lol.. who the hell is this guy? A bitter home inspector? I know how reliable they are!
Are you talking about the baudrates here? I've been trying to get modscan32 working recently, no luck. I am using a USB adapter.
Would Fluke leads fit? Not sure how standard meter leads are.
It's a different connector. I've been looking at the 376 for a bit, will probably pick one up once I find it for the right price.
Are these "closet installs" fairly common in the US? I think just about every (most) furnace here is in a open room in a basement.
