Whenever an electrician or technician takes a voltage measurement on a live conductor, there is a risk of electrical shock. Comtest, local channel partner for Fluke, has available the new Fluke 377 FC and 378 FC Non-Contact Voltage True-RMS ac/dc clamp meters which minimise this risk of electrical shock – because they are designed to make accurate non-contact voltage measurements without test leads.
