Safe, Convenient Functions Enable Productivity
Designed for maximum productivity, the Fluke 87-5 has more problem solving power, safety, convenience, and impact protection than the previous 80 Series models. This multimeter offers improved measurement functions, accuracy, and resolution, as well as trouble-shooting features to solve problems with motor drives, in-plant automation, power distribution, and electro-mechanical equipment.

Auto and Manual Ranging for Versatility
This unique multimeter provides both auto and manual ranging for optimum flexibility. And it's chock-full of helpful functions for accurate voltage and frequency measurements, even on adjustable-speed motor drives and other noisy equipment.

The Fluke 87-5 also boasts a built-in thermometer that conveniently allows you to take temperature readings without having to use a separate instrument--no more carrying a thermometer to take readings inside a refrigerator or air conditioning unit.

When used with ToolPak, a convenient magnetic hanger (sold separately), the Fluke 87-5 can be set up and viewed hands free.

Selectable Filter and True-RMS AC Voltage for Dependable Accuracy
Incredibly responsive and reliable, the Fluke 87-5 is accurate to 0.05% DC. Also, True-RMS AC voltage and current provide accurate measurements on non-linear signals. Additionally, a selectable filter ensures accurate voltage, while an input alert provides an audible warning against incorrect use of the input jacks.

The Fluke 87-5 measures up to 0 A, up to 20 A for 30 seconds, and 1,000-volt AC and DC. Also, it features an analog bar graph that allows for measurement of quick-changing or unstable signals. What's more, this meter measures frequency to 200 kHz, as well as resistance, continuity, and diode test.

The Fluke records Min/Max/Average and has a Min/Max alert that automatically captures variations. The Relative mode removes test lead interference from low-ohms measurements.

Easy-Read Display and Safe, Durable Design
The Fluke 87-5 comes equipped with a large, backlit display that shows easy-read digits. An improved selectable sleep mode helps increase the life of the battery, while an access door makes for fast battery changes without breaking the calibration seal.

The Fluke 87-5 is also safe--it's independently tested to comply with the second edition of ANSI/ISA S82.01 and EN61010-1. Also, CAT IV 600V/CAT III 1000V rated, this handy meter can withstand impulses in excess of 8,000 volts and can reduce risks related to surges and spikes. Additionally, its tightly sealed design helps protect against damage, even when the unit is dropped.

The Fluke 87-5 is backed by a lifetime warranty.

What's in the Box
Fluke 87-5; TL75 test leads; AC72 alligator clips; holster; nine-volt battery (installed); Getting Started manual; CD with detailed manual; and 80BK temperature probe.

Color:Industrial True RMS Multimeter|Verified Purchase
It may not have half the bells and whistles of a meter half the price, but what it does is done well. The little hooks on the back for holding your probes are a nice feature that I didn't see many people talking about.

It does have a stand built into the case, another feature I had a hard time knowing about before purchase.

I agree with a common sentiment in most reviews: at this price, they could have used a slightly less plastic-like coating on the probe leads. Maybe it has some kind of desirable characteristic, but I much prefer the soft silicone type coating that you typically find on higher end cables (think of the cable attached to the soldering pencil on a Weller station). For that I knock off a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluke Multimeter 87-V Jan. 22 2014
Color:Industrial True RMS Multimeter|Verified Purchase
This is a professional-grade digital multimeter that even measures capacitance and temperature. I am an amateur radio operator and the ability to measure true RMS ac voltage to such an amazing bandwidth makes it extra useful.
It is definitely not as inexpensive as what you find at a big box store, but as I said it is professional-grade. You have to pay for that. The cost is probably not justifiable for the average consumer, but if you're building electronic devices or want to verify capacitance values, this DMM is one of the top choices.
Most electronics professionals have Fluke test instruments somewhere in their working environment.

Color:Industrial True RMS Multimeter|Verified Purchase
It is a fantastic product for price that you pay. Of course, it is not rated to be used in some dangerous areas but for a common handyman, this is the best analysing tool everyone can have.

I am loving it.

And on top of it amazon service is great. I was told delivery will arrive after 3-5 business days but unit was at my door the next day.
