Safety and You
Why is safety important?
Why should you care?
Between five and ten times on any given
day, arc flash explosions, sufficient to send
a victim to a special burn center, take place
in the U.S. These incidents and other less
serious electrical accidents result in injury
—sometimes death—lost work time, medical
costs and insurance claims, downtime, the
list goes on.
The cost to both the victim, the victim’s
family and the company involved, are
high. Yet many of these accidents can be
prevented. The combination of training,
good measurement technique, and the use
of proper tools can significantly reduce the
chance of an accident occurring.
What are the Standards?
To provide improved protection for users,
industry standards organizations have
taken steps to clarify the hazards present
in electrical supply environments. The
American National Standards Institute
(ANSI), the Canadian Standards Association
(CSA), and the International Electro-
Technical Commission (IEC), have created
more stringent standards for voltage test
equipment used in environments of up to 1000 volts.
ANSI, CSA and IEC define four measurement categories of over-voltage transient
impulses. The rule of thumb is that the closer the technician is working to the power
source, the greater the danger and the higher the measurement category number. Lower
category installations usually have greater impedance, which dampens transients and
helps limit the fault current that can feed an arc.
CAT (Category) IV is associated
with the origin of installation.
This refers to power lines at
the utility connection, but also
includes any overhead and
underground outside cable runs,
since both may be affected by
lightning.
CAT III covers distribution level
wiring. This includes 480-volt
and 600-volt circuits such as
3-phase bus and feeder circuits,
motor control centers, load
centers and distribution panels.
Permanently installed loads are
also classed as CAT III. CAT III
includes large loads that can
generate their own transients. At this level, the trend to using higher voltage levels in
modern buildings has changed the picture and increased the potential hazards.
CAT II covers the receptacle circuit level and plug-in loads.
CAT I refers to protected electronic circuits.
Some installed equipment may include multiple categories. A motor drive panel, for
example, may be CAT III on the 480-volt power side, and CAT I on the control side.
Independent testing labs help ensure safety compliance
You want your tools and equipment to help you work safely. But how do you know that
a tool designed to meet a safety standard will actually deliver the performance you are
paying for?
Unfortunately it’s not enough to just look on the box. The IEC (International
Electrotechnical Commission) develops and proposes standards, but it is not responsible
for enforcing the standards. Wording like “Designed to meet specification...” may not mean
a test tool actually performs up to spec. Designer’s plans are never a substitute for an
actual independent test.
TUV and VDE
(German standards
organizations) are
approval/listing
agencies
Canadian Standards
Association (CSA)
For more information, go to www.fluke.com/safety
That’s why independent testing is
so important. To be confident, check
the product for the symbol and listing
number of Underwriters Laboratories
(UL), the Canadian Standards Associa-
tion (CSA), TÜV or another recognized
testing organization. Those symbols can
only be used if the product successfully
completed testing to the agency’s
standard, which is based on national/
international standards. That is the
closest you can come to ensuring that
the test tool you choose was actually
tested for safety.
What does the CE symbol indicate?
A product is marked CE (Conformité
Européenne) to show it conforms
to health, safety, environment and
consumer protection requirements
established by the European Commis-
sion. Products from outside the Euro-
pean Union cannot be sold there unless
they comply with applicable directives.
But manufacturers are permitted to
self-certify that they have met the
standards, issue their own Declaration
of Conformity, and mark the product
“CE.” The CE mark is not, therefore, a
guarantee of independent testing.
Why are Fluke products different?
Don’t be confused by “Listed” vs.
“Designed to” in your test tools.
IEC sets the standards but does not
test or inspect for compliance. So a
manufacturer can claim to “design
to” a standard with no independent
verification. To be UL-Listed, CSA or
TUV-Certified, a manufacturer must
employ the listing agency to TEST
the product’s compliance with the
standard. Look for the listing agency’s
emblem on the meter.
Go to www.fluke.com/safety to view The
Fluke Electrical Measurement Safety Program
and order your free copy of the Fluke Safety
video. This video makes the standards easy
to understand and can be used as part of
your own internal safety program.

Technical service at your fingertips
We know Fluke tool users put their tools through the paces, so we’re ready to answer
your questions and help keep your tools in top shape. No matter what application, in
what industry. And we’ll do it through real technical service professionals in Everett,
Washington.
When you need questions answered, call Sales and Application Support at

The Fluke experts answering your call can help with just about any test tool question.
They specialize in:
Advice on what to buy, from problem analysis to tool compatibility and configuration
“If I’m working with three phase motors, what’s the best tool to use?”
Help on how to use your tools in any application, from automotive to industrial
“How come I’m not getting a reading?”
“How do I transfer my test results?” “How do I measure harmonics?”
When your Fluke tools need repair or calibration, call Customer Support Services
at 1-888-99-Fluke or email service.status@fluke.com. Customers outside the U.S.
email service.international@fluke.com or visit www.fluke.com/service to find your
nearest location.
If your tool isn’t working correctly, or if you dropped it, ran over it, or dunked it in the pool,
call Fluke. If it’s not under warranty, we’ll give you a cost estimate over the phone. Once
you send it in, we’ll verify the problem, fix it, test it and put it back in the mail often in
less than five working days.
Fluke recommends having your DMMs, Calibrators and ScopeMeter test tools calibrated
once a year—especially if you use them often or need accurate measurements to meet
regulations requirements. Calibration compares your tool’s measurements to the accuracy
standard—sort of like setting your watch to match an atomic clock. Some test tools live a
pretty rough life. If you calibrate them, you know they’re accurate—even after what you
put them through.
For more information on servicing your Fluke tools outside of the U.S., see page 2 for contact information.

Introduction
Troubleshooting the electrical
service feeding adjustable
speed motor loads can be diffi-
cult if you don’t have the right
tools. New solid state motor
drives and heating controls
often conduct non-sinusoidal
(distorted) current. In other
words, the current occurs in
short pulses rather than the
smooth sine wave drawn
by a standard induction motor.
The current wave shape can
have a drastic effect on a
current clamp reading.
Basically, there are two
types of current clamps
commonly available: “average
responding” and “true-rms.”
The average responding units
are widely used and are usually
Why true-rms?
Non-linear loads need a true-rms
current clamp for accurate readings

can usually be separated into
one of three categories:
1. Too much current.
2. Too much heat in the
electrical enclosure.
3. Faulty circuit breaker
(or fuse).
Your first instinct will probably
be to measure the current with
a current clamp while the load
is on. If the current is within
the circuit rating, you may be
tempted to replace the circuit
breaker.

non-linear load with distorted current. The true-rms clamp reads correctly but the average
responding clamp reads low by 32 percent.

lower cost. They give correct
readings for linear loads such
as standard induction motors,
resistance heaters, and incan-
descent lights. But when loads
are non-linear, containing
semiconductors, the average
responding meters typically
read low. Worst case non-
linear loads include small
adjustable speed drives (5 hp
or less) connected line to line
across two phases of a 480 V,
three-phase system, solid state
heater controls connected
single phase to 240 V, or
computers connected to 120 V.

A heat exchanger
A flue gas exhaust chamber
A forced air circulating fan
and,
A controller section.
Newer units often include a
secondary heat exchanger to
increase efficiency and an auxil-
iary fan for combustion gases.
Since the newer units substan-
tially cool the combustion gases,
removing water vapor from the
combustion gases, they often are
called condensing high-efficiency
furnaces. Additionally, they
will have plastic flue gas piping
instead of older more traditional
metal flue pipe since the gas
temperatures are much lower
than less efficient older units.
Older standard gas furnaces
were 65 % to 78 % efficient,

Heating systems
principles
Forced-air heat is generated at
a central furnace and is then
distributed and delivered to the
conditioned space via a duct
system. A properly designed
heating system will generate
quiet, filtered, and comfortable
air into the conditioned zone.
Modern systems have been
recently designed that will also
filter the air electronically, modu-
late airflow as zone temperatures
change, and bring in fresh outside
air based on occupied time.
There are three types of fossil
fuel heating systems predomi-
nantly available on the market
today. These include natural gas,
liquefied petroleum (LP) and fuel
oil forced-air furnaces.
Fossil fuel forced-air
heating
Forced-air fossil fuel furnaces are
factory manufactured, packaged
heating units that include:
A combustion chamber
designed for gas or oil
while newer high efficiency
furnaces are 78 % to 85 %
efficient when used with induced
draft fans. Modern condensing
furnaces, however, are 90-95 %
efficient.
Modern fossil fuel furnaces also
come equipped with electronic
controls for ignition, fan speed
control, electronic thermostats,
and safety controls. The typical
operating pressure of the natural
gas furnaces at the burner is
3.5 inches of water column.
Natural gas is predominantly
used as the preferred fuel in
larger cities and communities
where main gas lines are
available. Fuel oil and Liquid
Petroleum (LP) heating furnaces
are more popular in rural
communities.

Work safely
This application note is intended
as a guide for the professional
mechanic. It describes some of
the test procedures commonly
used by experienced technicians.
However, some of the procedures
require you to take certain pre-
cautions to avoid personal injury
and/or damage to equipment or
vehicles. Fluke cannot anticipate
all possible precautions that you
must take on all the different
vehicles for which this guide is
applicable. For this reason, you
should thoroughly familiarize
yourself with proper safety
habits and take all precautions
described in the vehicle’s
repair manuals to avoid injury
or damage.
Testing automotive
systems with an
analog/digital multimeter
Perhaps the most important tool
you’ll use in troubleshooting auto
electrical systems is the multime-
ter. The basic multimeter
measures voltage, current and
resistance, while more elaborate
multimeters, such as the new
Fluke 88-V, have features that
can check things such as
frequency, duty cycle, pulse
width, make diode tests, and
even measure temperature.
In this application note you
will find troubleshooting tech-
niques using the high quality,
affordable and popular line of
Fluke analog/digital multimeters
and automotive troubleshooting
accessories. Fluke’s analog/
digital combination has distinct
advantages over either digital
or analog meters alone, and
the accessories are designed to
make your job easier and more
profitable.

Automotive electrical diagnosis.
Better diagnosis, faster repair.
From the Fluke Digital Library @ www.fluke.com/library
Although automotive multime-
ters with various capabilities
have been around for years,
many of them didn’t have the
scales and functions required for
todays’ automotive applications.
Hybrid, electric and fuel cell
powered vehicles have special
requirements, ones met with the
new 88-V. Now that computers
and their sensors are a part of
everyday automobile trou-
bleshooting, you need a true
multimeter to do the job.
The common analog type mul-
timeter is not only inadequate, it
can damage delicate computer
circuitry. Both analog meters and
test lights, due to their low inter-
nal resistance (input impedance),
draw too much power from the
device they’re testing to be used
on computers. What’s more,
many analog meters use 9V to
power the resistance test, which
is enough to destroy sensitive
digital components.

safety principles
The new Fluke 1620 Series Earth Ground
Testers not only measure ground resistance
using the classic ‘fall of potential test
but also enable time saving testing using
the ‘selective’ and ‘stakeless’ methods.
‘Selective’ testing does not require the
electrode under test to be disconnected
during the measurement, thus increasing
safety. The simple ‘stakeless’ method
quickly checks ground connections using
two current transformers (probes) clamped
around the ground conductor under test.
Offering ‘one-button’ simplicity, the 1623
is an all-in-one earth ground tester, while
the 1625 has extra versatility for more
demanding applications.
Earth ground resistance and soil
resistivity should be measured when:
Designing earth ground systems
Installing new ground system and
electrical equipment
Periodically testing ground and lightning
protection systems
Installing large electrical equipment
such as transformers, switchgears,
machines, etc.
The 1623 is perfect for performing
predictive maintenance checks of
commercial and industrial applications.
The 1625 is intended for electrical utility or
other high frequency environments.

The Handy GEO Earth Ground Tester is a rugged,
easy-to-use tester for three-pole ground resistance
measurements and two-pole ac resistance
measurements.
Earth ground resistance is measured by installing
earth ground test electrodes and testing with the
Handy GEO. Earth ground resistance measurements
are used to ensure safe operation and reduce power
quality problems. The Handy GEO is extremely
lightweight making it ideal to test for lightning
protection levels and periodic check-ups during
routine maintenance.
Two-pole ac resistance is measured to confirm low
resistance between electrical joints:
Fuse-to-fuse holder (to ensure there is no
overheating)
Bonding of ground earth connections
Additional bonding
Cable to terminal connections
AC current can be used to confirm the low resistance
path in two directions simultaneously.
The gold standard for measuring ground resistance
using classic fall of potential as well as selective and
stakeless methods.

The Fluke 1630 Earth Ground Clamp is able to measure
ground loop resistances—using the Stakeless testing method.
This test technique eliminates the dangerous, and time
consuming activity of disconnecting parallel grounds, as
well as the process of finding suitable locations for auxiliary
ground stakes. You can also perform earth ground tests in
places you have not considered before: inside buildings, on
power pylons or anywhere you don’t have access to soil.
With the Stakeless testing method, the Fluke 1630 Earth
Ground clamp is placed around the earth ground rod or
the connecting cable. No earth ground stakes are used at
all. A known voltage is induced by one half of the clamp
and the current is measured by the other half. The tester
automatically determines the ground loop resistance at this
grounding connection. Gone are the days of spending time
placing and connecting stakes for each earth ground rod on
your system—a major time saver.
Quick and easy use—no earth ground stakes are
necessary

What is ground, and what
does it do?
The NEC, National Electrical Code,
defines a ground as a “conducting
connection, whether intentional or
accidental between an electrical
circuit or equipment and the earth, or
to some conducting body that serves
in place of the earth.”
When talking about grounding
it is actually two different subjects,
earth grounding and equipment
grounding. Earth grounding is an
intentional connection from a circuit
conductor usually the neutral to a
ground electrode placed in the earth.
Equipment grounding is to ensure
that operating equipment within a
structure is properly grounded.
These two grounding systems
are required to be separate except
for a connection between the two
systems to prevent differences in
potential from a possible flashover
from a lightning strike. The purpose
of a ground besides the protection
of people, plants and equipment
is to provide a safe path for the
dissipation of fault currents, lightning
strikes, static discharges, EMI and
RFI signals and interference.

Power quality recording
and analysis: Techniques
and applications
Hooking up a power quality recorder and taking
days’ worth of data can give you a rich picture
of your power. In this article we’ll talk about the
various recording techniques available in power
loggers and recorders—understanding the tools
and techniques you have available will be key to
your strategy. What should you be looking for?
And when does recording make sense?
To really know your power, ideally,
you’d want to look at every line
cycle to see even the smallest
changes. However, since our power
swings through more than four
million cycles per day, it’s impracti-
cal to look at tiny changes—and
often unnecessary. Few loads even
notice occasional voltage dips of
one or two cycles.
How long you record depends
somewhat on the rhythm of your
building. If you are working on a
typical commercial or light indus-
trial building, then a week is long
enough for a building to go through
its normal cycle. If you are work-
ing in a plant that runs special
equipment only periodically (say
a furnace that runs only monthly),
you’ll need to be sensitive to the
timing of these loads.
Different recording techniques
have been developed to look at
small changes over relatively long
time periods. Many instruments
combine several techniques to
improve their coverage. We’ll
describe the common techniques
and some of their pros and cons.
By understanding the different
techniques. you’ll be better able to
choose an appropriate tool for the
job at hand.

Application Note
The NEC specifies that:
The highest demand is the
highest demand among all
feeders.
Take the measurements when
the building is occupied.
Include heating or cooling
loads, whichever is larger, or
correct to account for these
loads.
Add in any other periodic
loads.
As always, local authorities
are responsible for interpreting
the Code and measurements.
Local regulations determine
when a load study must be per-
formed, exactly what information
is required, and the review pro-
cess. Make sure you understand
your local requirements before
you start a load study.
30 Day Load
Studies with the
Fluke 1735
Power Logger
When a building owner wants
you to add new loads to an exist-
ing service or set of feeders, the
first thing you have to is deter-
mine whether the existing sys-
tem will support the new loads.
If you have a 600 amp service
installed in a facility, can you add
another 100 amps of load?
To answer this question you
have to ask another one: What is
the highest load the system car-
ries now?
Often, local electrical authori-
ties will need to know these
answers before they issue per-
mits. You’ll also need a compre-
hensive understanding of today’s
loading to evaluate the new sys-
tem, once installed.
To determine the existing
equipment’s capacity, factor in
the incoming conductor size, the
ratings of the equipment, and
space for new circuits. To deter-
mine present loading, you’ll need
to either precisely calculate the
existing loads, or measure them.
Article 220 of the 2005
National Electrical Code offers
two measurement methods for
determining existing loads and
the maximum demand the system
is likely to handle.
The NEC defines demand as
the power consumption of the
loads averaged over 15-minute
intervals.
The primary NEC method is to
find the maximum demand dur-
ing a one-year period. This only
works if you have a year’s worth
of demand data.
The alternate method is to
record the demand over a 30-day
period and find the maximum
demand. This article describes
the 30-day recording method,
known as a load study.

Application Note
Basic power quality
measurements on the
go with the Fluke 345
From the Fluke Digital Library @ www.fluke.com/library
During your day-to-day
measurement activities,
there may be situations
where you need to know
more than what voltage or
current is present. When
that happens, the standard
clamp meter isn’t going to
get the job done. The solu-
tion may be a power quality
clamp meter such as the
Fluke 345.
A power quality clamp
meter like the Fluke 345
combines a clamp meter,
power quality meter, oscil-
loscope and data logger
in one. This combination
of functions coupled with
high quality digital filtering
makes it ideal for working
with variable speed motor
drives, high efficiency light-
ing, and other loads using
switching electronics.
The basics
Of course, the Fluke 345 will make the basic mea-
surements of voltage and current to determine if
there is something seriously wrong with the circuit
under test. It’s rated for use at the service entrance
with a 600 Volt CAT IV rating.
Measuring voltage is as simple as using a clamp
meter: Connect the test leads up to the voltage
inputs, select voltage, and then read the rms volt-
age. Current measurement is just as easy. Select
current, open the jaw, clamp around the wire and
measure. With the 2000A range and large jaw
opening, you can evaluate most of the circuits in
the building.
The Fluke 345 can also measure both ac and dc
voltage and current simultaneously, and identify
the magnitude of each separately and combined as
ac+dc true-rms. That’s helpful for checking a UPS,
battery, and output, to make sure that the circuits
are working correctly and the batteries are in good
condition. A dc voltage component on the output
of a UPS or even an adjustable speed motor drive
may even be a quick indicator of a developing
problem. For example, waveform non-symmetry
will cause an apparent dc voltage component and
may indicate impending failure of system output
electronics.

Get the most value and
productivity from Fluke kits
Establishing a preventive mainten-
ance program is becoming critical to
maintaining the uptime of electrical
equipment and can significantly
reduce both planned and unplanned
downtime. Unplanned downtime
costs are difficult to calculate, but are
often significant. For some industries,
it can represent 1 % to 3 % of
revenue (potentially 30 % to 40 % of
profits) annually.
These kits can help you be
proactive and efficient with your
maintenance and can save you up
to 10 % off the individual price of
the tools.

Application note, literature code
1579160:
Insulation resistance testing
Insulation
resistance
testers can
be used to
determine
the integrity
of windings
or cables
in motors,
transformers,
switchgear,
and electrical
installations.
The test
method is determined by the type
of equipment being tested and the
reason for testing. For instance,
when testing electrical cabling
or switchgear (low-capacitance
equipment) the time-dependent
capacitive leakage and absorption
leakage currents become insignifi-
cant and decrease to zero almost
instantly. A steady conductive
leakage current flow is reached
almost instantly (a minute or less)
providing perfect conditions for the
spot-reading/short time resistance
test.
