Important Safety Notice regarding Fluke 8x V Series Digital Multi-meters
Dear Fluke Customer,
Fluke Corporation has identified a potential safety issue affecting certain Fluke 83V, 87V and 88V Digital Multimeters (‘Fluke 8x V series DMMs’).
As a precautionary measure, Fluke has decided to alert customers to the potential safety issue, and request that users perform a simple check to verify the unit is not impacted by the safety issue.
Fluke 8x V series DMMs in the following serial number range may have plastic material intrusion in the COM input terminal. In rare cases, the plastic has sufficiently covered the wall of the input terminal such that it can inhibit proper contact. This has been observed at specific orientations of the test lead plug within the input terminal when used with the “split core” TL75 test leads that shipped with certain regional variants of the product. If using the Fluke 8x V series DMM for the purpose of confirming the absence of voltage1 this may result in a non-hazardous voltage reading when hazardous voltage is present, thereby creating a potential safety risk.
