Work safer, smarter and faster with Fluke 1623 Earth Ground tester.
Fluke earth ground testers provide quick, accurate impedance measurements through several test methods: 3 and 4 pole Fall of Potential testing, selective testing, stake less testing and 2 pole testing.
Fluke 1623 is a versatile earth ground tester that can easily perform all four types of earth ground tests.
Fluke 1623-2 Earth Ground Tester Kit offers fast, accurate earth ground tests using all 4 test methods. World class accessories speed set up and test time.
Fluke 1623 Kit Basic Geo Earth Ground Testers Kit is a distinctive earth ground tester that can perform all four types of earth ground measurements.
Specifically, Stake less testing that is an innovative solution using only clamps, instead of ground stakes, to measure earth ground loop resistance.
The tester features a one-button measurement concept, 4-pole soil resistivity testing, selective testing, and no disconnection of the ground conductor.
The Fluke 1623-2 earth ground tester is able to measure earth ground loop resistances using only clamps.
With this test method, two clamps are placed around the earth ground rod and each are connected to the tester. No earth ground stakes are used at all.
A known, fixed voltage is induced by one clamp and the current is measured using the second clamp. Then the tester automatically determines the resistance of the earth ground rod.
This test method only works if a bonded earth ground system exists for the building or structure under test, but most are.
If there is only one path to ground, like at many residential applications, the Stakeless method will not provide an acceptable value and the Fall-of-Potential test method must be used.
With Stakeless testing, the earth ground rod does not need to be disconnected – leaving the bonded earth ground system intact during test.
Gone are the days of spending time placing and connecting stakes for each earth ground rod on your system – a major time saver.
You can also perform earth ground tests in places you’ve not considered before: inside buildings, power pylons, or anywhere you don’t have access to soil.
