The Fluke 87V Industrial True-RMS Multimeter

The Fluke 87V has improved measurement functions, troubleshooting features, resolution and accuracy to solve more problems on motor drives, in plant automation, power distribution, and electromechanical equipment. The 87V operates very similar to the classic 87, but with more problem-solving power, safety, convenience and impact protection.
With its newly incorporated selectable low pass filter, the Fluke 87V allows troubleshooters to take accurate voltage, current and frequency measurements on the output side of the drive at either the drive itself or the motor terminals.

Features for maximum productivity:

  • Unique function for accurate voltage and frequency measurements on adjustable speed motor drives and other electrically noisy equipment (87V)
  • Built-in thermometer conveniently allows you to take temperature readings without having to carry a separate instrument (87V)
  • Large digit display with bright, two-level backlight makes the 80 Series V significantly easier to read than older models

Electrical Safety:

All inputs are protected to Category III, 1000 V and Category IV 600 V. They can withstand impulses in excess of 8,000 V and reduce risks related to surges and spikes.

Correctly measure pulse-width modulated motor drive signals

Until now, there hasn't been a multimeter able to accurately measure adjustable speed drives. But the Fluke 87V is designed specifically to handle these complex signals. Think of the potential productivity you'll gain by taking the guesswork out of drive system troubleshooting. Measurements are correct each and every time.

  • Unique function for accurate measurements of noisy pulse-width modulated AC voltage.
  • Measures correctly at the ASD and at the motor terminals
  • Accurately measure the frequency (motor speed). Frequency measurement not affected by the ASDs carrier frequency
  • Measure AC current with an optional current clamp accessory
  • Compare reading from the 87V with the display on the ASD
  • Special shielding blocks high frequency, high-energy noise generated by large drive systems

Fluke 87V Industrial True RMS Multimeter Reviews:

Flukester - Tuesday, June 19th 2012

Solid and Precise

If you don't lose your tools, buy it once and get a FLUKE.Clear lighted display, durable and trustworthy.I got the TL175 adjustable leads as well, they are great.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.


JohnB - Friday, June 15th 2012

Very Versatile!

A feature packed meter , A must for trouble technicians and troubleshooters. One meter replaced 5. Frequency and amp measured with the same clamp. I use this meter daily. Cant say enough great about itGreat Battery lifeUseful settingsRuggedVery Accurate

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.


Chuck86 - Friday, June 15th 2012

AAAA+ meter

If I only needed one meter, this is the one meter I would rely on. From it's quick response to it's multi applications it's THE meter to have. Does everything I could ask for in a meter of this size and cost. Use mine throughout the day to calibrate drives, to checking temps. It does it all. Not cumbersome to tote around. Lots of thought was put into this model.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.


EnergyKing - Thursday, June 14th 2012

Loaded with the features I need.

An overall rugged and dependable DMM. Accuracy is unsurpassed and the 87 Series V is the flagship of all of my fluke DMM's.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.


RTS88 - Wednesday, June 13th 2012

Rugged, accurate, and easy to use

I have had this product over a year working in the traffic signal industry and it has taken it's share of abuse and still working like a charm. The large digital display makes it easy to read at a distance.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

A rugged, dependable, and accurate meter.

The Model 87V was purchased to measure AC voltage for audio, where the measurements above 1 KHz had always been suspect with an older meter I had on hand. Due to the Model 87V's bandwidth out to 20 KHz, I am now able to reliably measure loudspeaker sensitivity using the multimeter in conjunction with a SPL calibrated microphone. This was previously a problem with tweeters since most of their output is above 1KHz.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

DMM 87 V

I have use this meter for over a year now and it is definitely professional grade. The accuracy of these meters and the robust manufacturing that goes into these meters is second to none. I have used these meters on the race team in college, as an engineer in the field and on todays highly electronic automobiles. the uses for this meter are endless. This is a must for anyone diagnosing and performing any electrical work on anything.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

The best for the money.

I have had my 87V for a few months now and is by far one of the best meters I've owned. I am a Technical Supervisor for a small electronics mfg co and I purchase Fluke products whenever the need arises. Fluke products are by far the best on the market.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Best DMM ever

I've had the 85 for only a year now, and it isn't the industry standard for nothing! On every count this thing beats the quoted specs by a mile. It is built like a tank, and for that I am greatful because I have used this in some nasty places. I feel like I am practically married to my 85, I use it so much. It always works when I need it.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Fluke 87 V Fits the bill

I use this DMM specifically for Cathodic Protection testing, troubleshooting, and training. This versatile test instrument is perfect for demanding and rugged use, and stands up to most field environments, from CP test readings, to troubleshooting CP rectifier components, to investigating stray dynamic AC and DC power on gas distribution and transmission pipelines.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Most accurate and dependable!!!

I would definately recommend this meter the Fluke 87V true rms. I have been in the electrical indusrty for approx 30 yrs and Fluke has never let me down. This meter is very user friendly. it has a crystal clear dimmable led display which is very helpful in the field. Most importantly it is the most accurate and reliable meter I have ever used in my 30 yrs in the trade. This is my second Fluke 87 meter over the yrs and I would not hesitate to buy a third meter.. Another great feaure of my fluke meter is how durable it is. I have dropped my meter quite a few times and a few times off my ladder, I picked it up and it was in perfect working order....

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Excellent Digital Multi Meter

I own a small computer business & work on some electronics. This meter does all I need & more. It is well built, it has out lasted other brand meters I have used, & the info I get from this meter is very dependable. Other meters just don't measure up to the Fluke. You may pay a little more for them, but yo get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Still the gold standard.

I've been relying on a trusty Fluke 79 for 15 years. It was finally time to upgrade and I picked up a Fluke 87. The 87 is a pleasure to use. The selector knob still has that Fluke "snick"". The meter has a solid feel. The buttons are easy to operate. I'll be using this meter for at least the next 15 years!"

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.
