New Fluke 6500-2 and Fluke 6200-2

Following on from the popular 6200 and 6500 PAT testers from Fluke it appears Fluke are due to release some significantly revamped new models.

More information on Fluke's web site: http://www.fluke.com/fluke/uken/product ... ce-testers

We beleive that the testers are due out later this month (March 2014)

We are trying to get hold of a Fluke 6500-2 as soon as possible so that we can look at adding download support for it in SimplyPats 7

We will post our progress once we have had a chance to try these new testers.

New Fluke 6500-2 and Fluke 6200-2

Just an update to this thread. Whilst we are still awaiting delivery of our own Fluke 6500-2 which has been delayed, we did manage to have a quick play with one at the Elex Show at West Point in Exeter last friday.

Although we didn't have alot of time to test the features of the 6500-2, kindly the guys on the Fluke stand did let us quickly download some test data onto a USB pen drive.

Having had a look at the data from the tester, we are reasonably confident that we will be able to support the 6500-2 in SimplyPats. Hopefully this tester will be added to the next update 7.0.4 due later this year. In addition this release should also include support for three new Seaward PAT testers, the Apollo 600, Apollo 500 and the PrimeTest 250 Plus.

Our Fluke 6500-2 arrived this morning and was subject to a photo shoot straight out of the box.

We then went onto doing some actual tests so we have some example data to use while working on the Download / Import functionality into SimplyPats.

The Fluke 6500-2 Case

The Fluke 6500-2 case is identical to the one supplied with the original Fluke 6500. The lid of the case has a compartment for storage of smaller cables etc.

Fluke 6500-2 Keyboard and USB Connectivity

Our Fluke 6500-2 came bundled with a standard USB A to B Cable and a 4Gb USB Memory Stick (as pictured below)

Data can be downloaded directly onto the USB Memory stick or if you are using a USB A to B cable your PC should recognise the PAT Testers internal storage and install it as a "Removable Storage" device with a capacity of 694kb.

Fluke 6500-2 Test Sockets

The Fluke 6500-2 has a built in 110v transformer which makes it a little heavier than the older 6500 model.
