Who needs these . . .

  Who uses it?                              Where is it used?
  Industrial Service Electrician            In the service panel, clamp around each
                                            individual phase. (Good for large single,
                                            or parallel conductors)
  Electrical Contractor                     In the service entrance, clamp around up
                                            to 2.5” busbar to verify expected current
  Marine or Welding Electrician             Useful measuring current consumption of
                                            large current dc systems.
  Utility Engineer                          Measure current in conductors of low-
                                            voltage vaults
  Facilities Maintenance                    Verify operation of large load service
  Electricians                              panels, switchgear, and motors

                                   Fluke-353 and Fluke-355 Clamp Meters              3
Common uses
 •   Electrical equipment/service entrance – The large jaw size
     combined with CAT IV 600 V and CAT III 1000 V are a great
     match to the requirements to make measurements.
      –   Large Conductors - Clamp around large, single, or
          multiple conductors of the load side to measure inrush
          or steady load current.
      –   Busbar – Clamp around busbar up to 2.5” wide
 •   Variable frequency drives, electric motors, and UPS systems
     - True-rms and low-pass filter make this an ideal tool for high
     frequency or noisy loads, accurately measure start-up
     current (Inrush).
 •   New electrical installations.- Check for correct operation after
     initial install to prevent early system failure.
 •   Welding equipment – DC current mode can measure up to
     2000 A, ideal for large dc load.
 •   Verify line voltage, continuity and resistance (355 only) – Use
     the added DMM-like features for more convenient testing, all
     in one tool

What are the target industries/markets

  •    Industrial plants and facilities
  •    Building maintenance, e.g. Universities, hospitals, large
       offices, correctional institutions
  •    Manufacturing and process facilities
  •    Plant works, e.g. Power, pharmaceutical, printing,
       automotive assembly
  •    Refineries
  •    Steel mills and other metal manufacturing plants
  •    Large dc systems such as dc electroplating, or marine
       electrical systems
  •    Utilities (low-voltage vaults)

                           Fluke-353 and Fluke-355 Clamp Meters    5
Top 3 reasons why these products are
    •     2000 A current handling capability. Wide
          enough range for most large load applications

    •     600 V Cat IV, 1000 V Cat III rated for added user
          protection. Gives users and supervisors peace
          of mind that the test equipment is NFPA 70E
          compliant**. i.e. suitable for the system being

    •     Large jaw opening (58 mm, 2.3 in) to clamp
          around busbar, or large conductors. Even
          multiple, large conductors can be clamped
          around (if current is all flowing in the same
          direction) such as the load side of a 3-phase

 ** When used properly per Article 110.9 Use of Equipment (A) Test Instruments and Equipment.

Category Rating, safety NFPA 70E

 The Fluke-353 and Fluke-355 feature a CAT IV 600 V and
 CAT III 1000 V rating; appropriate for most environments
 where industrial or commercial electricians work.
    • Safety officers and facility managers require that equipment
      meet current safety standards to decrease accidents, reduce
      worker’s compensation costs, and to avoid liability.
    • NFPA 70E Article 110.9 (A) states that, “Test instruments,
      equipment, and their accessories shall be rated for circuits and
      equipment to which they will be connected.”
    • Very few 2000 A current clamps on the market today meet this

Costs of downtime

 •   Corporations waste billions of dollars
     as a result of unplanned downtime
     every year.
 •   These losses flow directly to the
     bottom line.
 •   Reactive maintenance can cost 3-4x
     more than programs that utilize
     predictive/preventive maintenance.

     The new Fluke-353 and Fluke-355 can
     help minimize your downtime; saving
     you, and your corporation, time and
     money by helping you quickly detect
     small problems before they become big
