AKA Fluke 87-V

From the control room to the plant floor, the Fluke 87-5 digital multimeters has earned its reputation as the digital multimeter industrial technicians trust. When productivity is on the line, the Fluke 87-5 delivers the accuracy and advanced troubleshooting capabilities you need to solve problems fast.

Use its low pass filter function to measure voltage and frequency accurately on electrically - noisy equipment like adjustable speed motor drives. Use the peak capture function to detect intermittent problems and transients as fast as 250 micro seconds (μs).

And work with confidence. The Input Alert function gives you an audible warning against wrong use of input jacks. Fluke 87-5 multimeters are independently tested for use in CAT IV 600V/CAT III 1000V environments. They can withstand impulses in excess of 8,000 V and reduce risks related to surges and spikes.

At Fluke, our ideas come straight from the job site. We work with users like you to create test tools that do the job you want for as long as you need it - and give you full value. We design and build Fluke 87-5 multimeters in the U.S.A. The 87-5 is backed by our limited lifetime warranty. And we back them with our limited lifetime warranty so you can work smarter, faster and safer.

  • Unique function for accurate voltage and frequency measurements on adjustable speed motor drives and other electrically noisy equipment (87-5)
  • Built-in thermometer conveniently allows you to take temperature readings without having to carry a separate instrument (87V)
  • Optional magnetic hanger for easy set-up and viewing while freeing your hands for other tasks
  • Large digit display with bright, two-level backlight makes the 87-5 significantly easier to read than older models
