Fluke T5-1000 Voltage, Continuity and Current Tester

The T5 Voltage Continuity and Current Tester is a versatile troubleshooting tool to carry to every job site. See why Fluke customers prefer the T5.





Electrical tester with OpenJaw™ Current

The Fluke T5 Electrical Testers let you check voltage, continuity and current with one compact tool. With the T5, all you have to do is select volts, ohms, or current and the tester does the rest. OpenJaw™ current lets you check current up to 100 A – without breaking the circuit. Its tough test leads stow neatly in the back of the tester, making it easy to tote the T5 in your tool pouch. Detachable SlimReach™ test probes are customized for national electrical standards. The test leads accept optional accessories such as clips and specialty probes. The optional H5 holster lets you clip the T5 onto your belt. Also available in a 600 V model.
