Fluke 28 test leads
« on: September 29, 2012, 09:43:08 pm »
Does anybody own Fluke 28?
Test leads does not go all the way in??

Also when in ohm range it reads resistance of diodes.. this is confusing for in-circuit troubleshooting... If I remember right Fluke 12 and 77 did not do that?

And third thing I noticed when measuring higher capacitors for example 3300uF results are around 10% higher compared to Agilent U1272A, BK Precision 875B and Hioki 3801-50.

Other than that and diode range (only up to 2V) I love it.

I have a Fluke 27 II and with standard TL75 test leads, they stick out 3 to 4 mm.

I should be getting another different set of Fluke test leads sometime next week so I will try the other ones.

Are you talking about the 28 or 28ii? The test leads that came with my 28ii go in all the way.

I've found that the 28ii and 85V consistently report capacitance in the 50-100uF range about 10% higher than what I see on several different bridges (testing at 1000Hz).

Sir ,
     i was myself searching for a protek 608 new lead .I saw a dealer in ebay usa selling awesome collection of UNI-T leads .I have used the same brand leads in a few multimeters over the years and they are awesome .Might be you can try one of those instead of tad expensive fluke once
