    That's the Fluke 16, which has temperature, and capacitance, in addition to standard DVM meters, and the Fluke 322 clamp DMM. A GOOD, high quality set of leads and a case for the hole outfit.

    Like the Fielpiece OEM leads? Didn't think so.
    Geez dave I have the original 15? year old leads on my fieldpiece,I have the extra long probes & have bent them on accident a multitude of times.Hell I stepped on one today & bent it on a 90 deg angle.I bent it back & it is ok.


    Yeah, and at < 40F, you can hold the 4' leads straight out, and stay 4' away from the circuit!!!!!

    Nice feature.

    Pick up a set of $40.00 Fluke leads once. Then tell me which one is better.

    What's not to understand on them? A 3 year old could troubleshoot a PLC with one, according to THEM!

    Well, I can't personally see owning a high quality meter, then not using it, simply because there is a cheaper one around that you're not afraid to beat on.

    My 189 and 54 go in to every single job with me, bouncing around in the bag. I'm not gonna drag around my old 8025A simply because the 189 was expensive....

When I do trouble shooting and controls work I break out the fluke meters I feel more comfortable with fluke on my side!! I watched a Fluke Cd my dad gave me It showed how the other brands would blow up in your hand as were fluke just blew the Fuse And lets face facts Our main Objective at the end of our day is get home to our families in one piece that said spend the dough for a Fluke.
    Another excellent point. We haven't heard anything back about the CATIII ratings on fieldpiece, have we???

    I bought a SC67 a year ago and have not had any problems with it. It has been a great clamp-on for the work that I do. For the life of me, I cannot understand why you hate the brand so much.......you almost seem like you have a vendetta against FP. I know people that have bought Fluke, Amprobe and other "top shelf" brands and been dissatified. If the meter works everytime, is accurate and dependable, its a good meter........'nuff said.
    The ONLY way that someone could buy a "top shelf" meter and be dissatisfied, is because they couldn't understand how to use it properly.

    The Fluke meters are often a bit more complex than the other meters, and a LOT of guys that don't have a solid grasp of basic and intermediate electricity WILL have difficulties using some of the features on them.

    My distaste for Fieldpiece and their trashy products and trashier marketing are well documented here. Vendetta? OK, sounds fine, I'll agree to that. I long for the days when good equipment was all that as available, and the technicians that were using those test instruments were able to interpret the readings and measurements. I feel companies like Fieldpiece, UEI, TIF, etal have dumbed down our entire industry by selling toys as tools, and using dog & pony sho marketing and bell & whistle features to lure unsuspecting techs to waste their money on junk, rather than safe, high quality tools that don't shimmy and sparkle.

    Clear? Or need I elaborate further?

    It's all been said before, and I AM simply repeating myself at this point. This site has a search feature. Enter fieldpiece and enjoy.

    To try to answer the first post with out EXTREME opinions.

    I own a HS-35 and (at lest in high heat) the batteries has lasted over a year. I have two co-workers who own the HS-36 and no problems.
    Yes the meter jumps alot in AUTO Ranging. If that's a problem just set the range to manual.

    Yuma,

    A Proud owner and user of Fieldpiece meters, and user of leak search DYES.
    IN SPITE of other opinions...
    Wow, you really keep trying to turn this away from the real issue, and drag up the dye fight, dontcha?

    Just remember, while you're screwing around trying to inject that dye into the system, that noise you hear is my torch fixing that leak.
