Fluke CNX Wireless System simplifies troubleshooting by enabling up to 10 simultaneous electrical and temperature wireless measurements. Courtesy: FlukeFluke CNX Wireless System is the first set of test tools that wirelessly connects multiple measurement modules and sends simultaneous readings to a master device up to 20 m away, allowing users to troubleshoot problems quickly and efficiently, according to Fluke Corp. The rugged, customizable tool set allows users to choose various measurement modules based on a specific troubleshooting scenario.

At the core of the Fluke CNX Wireless System is a CAT III 1000 V / CAT IV 600 V multimeter with a screen that displays readings along with live readings from up to three other measurement modules. For more complex troubleshooting, users can view live measurements from up to 10 modules simultaneously on a computer equipped with the CNX PC Adapter.

The modules, which include AC Voltage, AC Current Clamp, iFlex AC Current Clamp, and K-Type Temperature units, can take live measurements or log up to 65,000 sets of data. Logged data can be saved to a computer in .csv format.

The Fluke CNX system allows users to place modules in hazardous or awkward places and then watch the readings from a safe distance. For example, a technician can de-energize a panel, connect voltage or current modules to all three phases, close and re-energize the panel, and then conveniently read the measurements outside the arc flash zone.

By leveraging the most common electrical test tool – the multimeter – the Fluke CNX system allows technicians to extend their existing capabilities and skills, helping them meet market demand for more complex three-phase work without re-training on more complex test tools.

Founded in 1948, Fluke Corp. calls itself the world leader in compact, professional electronic test tools. Fluke customers are technicians, engineers, electricians, and metrologists who install, troubleshoot and manage industrial, electrical and electronic equipment and calibration processes.
