Fluke 1625-2 GEO Earth Ground Tester

Fluke 1625-2 GEO Earth Ground Tester is able to measure earth ground loop resistances using only clamps called Stakeless testing.

 

Overview

More accurate earth ground value!

One of the best Fluke tools for measuring earth resistance.

The simple “stakeless” method quickly checks ground connections using two current transformers probes clamped around the ground conductor under test.

The Fluke 1625 Earth Ground Tester not only measures ground resistance using the classic fall of the potential test but also enables time-saving testing using selective and stakeless methods.

Specifically, the 1625 tester is able to measure earth ground loop resistances using only clamps called Stakeless testing.

This method doesn’t require the use of earth ground stakes or the disconnection of ground rods.

The testing methods of this tester include 3 and 4 pole fall of potential which is standard earth ground testing.

Using two ground stakes; selective testing without disconnecting ground rods, a technician can measure ground resistance using a combination of stakes and a clamp, and stakeless testing.

Which is an innovative solution using only clamps, instead of ground stakes, to measure earth ground loop resistance.

All those amazing things now you can do so easily by Fluke 1625-2 GEO Earth Resistance Tester.

Features

Stakeless Testing

The Fluke 1625-2 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 the 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.

The Most Complete Tester

The Fluke 1625-2 is a unique earth ground tester that can perform all four types of earth ground measurement:

  • 3- and 4-Pole Fall-of-Potential (using stakes)
  • 4-Pole Soil Resistivity testing (using stakes)
  • Stakeless testing (using 2 clamps only)
  • Selective testing (using 1 clamp and stakes)
