As with any type of tooling or equipment, a Fluke Multimeter will eventually need to be calibrated. Whether you’re using it for a hobby or are in a highly regulated industry, in order to get consistent, accurate readings from the Fluke you need to calibrate regularly. The timing for calibration is often dependent on your environment; whether it is in cold or harsh weather, whether it has been dropped, how often you are using it, etc. In this blog post, we’re going to explain how to check your fluke multimeter to see if it is in need of calibration.
Fluke-179s are relied on to give us accuracy and reliability. But how reliable can these instruments be if we aren’t ensuring that they’re calibrated on a regular schedule? It is critical that the Fluke-179 instrument is calibrated periodically to meet industry standards.
Outside conditions such as temperature, humidity and environment can affect the impact of the Fluke-179. Without regular calibration, the range of error increases and standardization is compromised.
Time, in general, can affect your Fluke-179. All circuits will drift over time, impacting the assurance that your instrument will continue to work within the quality parameters you have come to expect.
From an investment standpoint, continually calibrating your Fluke-179 will keep your instrument from depreciating in value over time.
Overall, periodically calibrating your Fluke-179 is the best choice when working within a standard. e2b calibration is an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration and repair laboratory providing a full scope of services (traceable to NIST) for most popular calibration, test, and measurement instruments. Services are provided in our climate-controlled, state-of-the-art laboratory with on-site services in Chardon, Mentor, Willoughby, Cleveland, Akron, Cincinnati, Columbus and across the country.

Test and measurement professionals use Fluke products, specifically flowmeters in a wide variety of applications including energy and utilities, HVAC, water management, waste management, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and many other critical areas. In such important applications, credibility of your measurements is absolutely necessary, so too is Fluke flowmeter calibration and without it, the output of your meter is meaningless because you cannot be certain of the meters accuracy or repeatability.
Contracting with a service provider to properly and correctly calibrate your fluke instruments is an important step ensuring quality, safety, and compliance in your organization. There are many different providers to choose from, but no two are the same and it is critical to make this decision carefully! Choosing the wrong Fluke calibration service provider can lead to costly additional expenses and problems. Here are a few questions to ask yourself to help you make sure you’re making the choice that makes sense for your organization.
You know how important your tools and instruments are to the success of your business which is why regular fluke instrument calibration is necessary to ensure quality, safety, cost savings, customer satisfaction, and the many other benefits of regular maintenance are recognized. But where are you having your fluke instrument calibration done? Are you spending too much? Waiting too long? This is where your selection of calibration service provider becomes extremely important. Using the wrong calibration lab can lead to unnecessarily long down time or periods of reduced productivity while waiting for your instrument to come back; not to mention how the lab you work with impacts how much you’re spending.

The fluke analog/digital multi meter combines the capabilities of the analog and digital meters into one durable, rugged, and reliable solution. Compared to other multi meters, this model has a case 2 times as thick and is completely sealed and waterproof for one hour at depths up to 1 meter. With the proper care and fluke multi meter calibration, these tough solutions were built to withstand chemicals, drops, electrical overloads, contaminants, heat, cold, humidity, vibration, and other environmental obstacles Continue reading
Flow measurement can be a complex and complicated thing to measure, but is it critical in many applications. Fluke has developed some of the best tools on the market designed to help users in industries such as HVAC, energy and utilities, water management, agriculture, pharmaceutical, and many others to properly measure and test flow rates. Although Fluke offers some of the top meters on the market you cannot ignore proper and regular fluke flow meter calibration to ensure accurate and reliable measurements. But there is more to it than that. Continue reading
Fluke pressure transducers are some of the best in the market. They can be found in a number of industries and in countless applications. Fluke pressure transducer calibration is a must for any user. Why? Because pressure measurement is an extremely important part of so many things, from every day activities like pumping gas, to more advanced applications like dealing with chemicals and rockets. None of those things are going to be safe if pressure is not being correctly measured. This is why calibration of your pressure transducers is so important. Continue reading
Extremely important and commonly measured in many applications, pressure is one of the more complex measurements out there; but Fluke offers some of the best engineered solutions to help you get the most accurate measurements possible. The Fluke Dual pressure module line includes Fluke 700PD2, Fluke 700PD3, Fluke 700PD4, Fluke 700PD5, Fluke 700PD6, and Fluke 700PD7. Although they are some of the best on the market, even the best need constant care as these solutions will only work properly if they are well taken care of, Fluke dual pressure module calibration is a must; more importantly is making sure those calibrations are done correctly and comply with industry and mandated standards.
