Fluke recalls clamp meters

EVERETT, Wash. — In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Fluke test tools is voluntarily recalling a number of digital clamp meters that were manufactured between Jan. 29 and Feb. 27, according to a release from the company.

According to Fluke, quality assurance tests have identified the potential for a short circuit connection on the meters’ circuit boards.

“This may lead to inaccurate voltage readings including a low or no voltage reading on a circuit energized with a hazardous voltage,” the company reported in the release. “This finding could create a hazardous situation if the user were to contact live voltage based on an erroneous instrument reading.”

The recall affects certain 333, 334, 335, 336 and 337 digital clamp meters.

Information including the serial numbers of the affected products and where to return recalled meters is available on Fluke’s Web site.
