Product Overview

The 80 Series V operates very similar to the classic 80 series, but with more problem solving power, safety, convenience and impact protection.

The 80 series V are independently tested to comply with the 2nd edition of ANSI/ISA S82.01 and EN61010-1 CAT IV 600V/CAT III 1000V. They can withstand impulses in excess of 8,000 V and reduce risks related to surges and spikes.



Fluke 87-5 Series Digital Multimeter is rated4.67 out of5 by60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The legendary Fluke 87I've been using Fluke products for a long time now, all the way back to the original 87 meter. The 87-V still has that original 87 look and feel with greater accuracy, safety, and functionality. The best general purpose DMM on the market in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does It All!!!I've been using this meter for the past 2 years and have never had an issue with operation or calibration. The auto-ranging saves tons of time and keeps the meter safe. The large display is easy to read from a distance or in low light situations. The most rugged, accurate and simple multimeter I have used in 20 years. P.S. The battery life is awesome too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety FirstI bought my 87V combined with a PRV240 proving meter. I've been using Fluke products for a long time they are highly accurate, reliable and safe. I’m actually a generator technician and love those leads, they work great for what I do. This is a great meter, accurate, durable and together with the proving meter makes my job a lot safer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 MeeterI purchased the Fluke 87V about a year ago and it has never let me down. I work with a lot of technicians and my Fluke out preforms so of the other name brand units that are just to slow for I like to see. Others have Snap on and Mac branded units that they paid more for and still have issues with Hertz and the rate of change is way to slow when checking just basic voltage. I also own an 87 version one, that still works, it was clicking for a little, that's the reason why I got the new version 5, but it eventually started working again. I guess it just needed a rest. My 88 as well that the screen started to fade, repiared with just a cleaning of the contacts. I have not found a better meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Quality.Just received my Fluke 87v in the mail. The unit was supplied with a basic lead set with protective caps for Cat IV testing per IEC 61010-031k requirements. As compared to my Snap-on and Klein meters this Fluke is superior in quailty of build and function. I haven’t had it long enough to put it through all its paces, so I cannot comment on some of the other issues that other reviewers have posted. I have read on other online forums that Fluke sometimes charges a hefty fee for repairs even with the lifetime warranty. So only time will tell if my purchase was a complete success, however so far, I have no buyer’s remorse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can always trust Fluke.I bought this a couple of years ago and I am glad I did. The quality and durability make it a pleasure to work with. The big thing I like about Fluke is that when I take a reading I don't have to wonder if it is right or not. Their meters have always been trustworthy. And if you drop it , it won't die. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fluke 87-V & Fluke 78I had a Fluke 78 for years and now have stepped up to the 87-V. Fluke makes rugged instruments that are easy to use. Fluke provides good service too should any repairs be necessary. The Fluke 78 still works great after years of use and I gave it to my son. I will never buy another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best multimeter out thereI bought this few years ago just to use for my hobby modifying cars. It had been a wonderful multimeter for me. I used to have an older version of Fluke back in Asia that I had for 20 years, and looks like this 87V is even more robust! It's so user friendly, all the button and knob are logically mark, the display is easy to read, all you ever one in a digital multimeter. The price is high but you got what you pay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good MeterI've had this meter a couple of months now and like this meter. I knew being a Fluke it would of good quality. The reason I got this particular model was it covers all of the standard features in one meter. The main one that I needed was to be able to measure 4-20ma signals. As for me Fluke is the only meter to have. I've still got my first Fluke meter and it still works. It's a Fluke 77 from 1993.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and RuggedI am an Auto Technician that specializes in automotive electrical systems and computers. I have been doing this for 18 years. I use my Fluke 87V every day. I know that every morning that I go to turn it on, that it will work properly. It is extremely accurate and fast. Due to the speed of the meter, I can check computer networks buy using the min/max feature. Also the min/max feature allows me to check a vehicle for a parasitic draw. It has survived through very harsh environments. I would never think about buying any other brand meter. For me it is always only Fluke!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multimeter!I picked up this multimeter a few months ago for doing some electrical work around my house, in my RV, and on my truck. So far, it was worked great! The body is a durable plastic, the screen is large and easy to read, and it has a ton of different functions. I am still learning how to use many of the different functions, but this has still proven to be a valuable tool to have in my toolbox!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The goto handheld for troubleshooting wiringInitially started using these in the military while working Avionics on Fixed and Rotary wing aircraft. Fell in love with them back then and have continued to use to this day. Currently these are used by our service personnel and engineers in the lab. This is a good meter to own and put in the tool box. I continue to use mine at home along with a newer one at work. I am happy with both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, Accurate,& IndestructibleI bought the 87V several years ago and have used it many times. It is versatile for most anything I want to do. I am a DIY'er and don't use it professionally but I use quite often in automotive, household, and electronics. The diode function is quite useful for anything from alternator checks to small electronic circuit and component troubleshooting. I've used in the house to check everything from my AC run capacitors in the capacitance mode to the thermostat and temp control in my wife's ovens using the thermometer function. It does everything I've asked it to do and it is extremely durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great MeterI purchased this multimeter for our new lab. We use a metal pegboard to store our tools and the magnetic mount strap came in handy for hanging up the meter in its case. I'm very pleased with the performance and quality of the meter. I like the flexibility of being able to change the probe tips between alligator and standard probes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel safer alreadySimply the best and safest DMM on the market. There is very little that you can't do with this marvel. The premium price that you are paying is for the additional safety features. For a DIY such as myself safety is my top priority. There are cheaper DMM that can do many of the same things as the 87V but as soon as you check the CAT ratings you see why they are cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "Go To" MeterI bought this meter around 5 years ago and it's still going strong. It is used to verify test setups on medical electronics so yearly calibration is required and we have never had an issue, always in calibration and has never required adjustment. Pretty good for a meter that is used everyday and gets knocked around a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reg Current Measurement of 87 V DMMWe are using 87V model DMM since 2 years , We use to face issue in current measurement , Ex if we inject 10.00A DMM displays as usual. If we inject 10.01. DMM starts to blink but it also displays the 10.01 as reading. My question is in Datasheet for 87V Fluke has mentioned that the DMM will reads 20A current for 30 Sec duration if it so why the 10.01 A starts blinking both in AC & Dc. We tried in other DMM with same model No's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Fluke 87V Dead on ArrivalJust purchased a new 87V DMM from Fry's Electronics. Tried to turn it on and it is dead. Purchased a new 9V battery and the meter is still dead. So, if you purchase one of these meters I suggest you check it before you leave the store. And of course, it was Fry's last meter. Now I have to wait almost a week to get a replacement. Not to mention I am out almost $5 on a 9V battery I don't need. Fluke- are you checking these expensive meters before you ship them?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the OneThe Fluke 87V meter is solid all around. I've been 30 yrs. in Production Maintenance and International Service. Fluke meters have always been in my tool box, tool kit and tool bag. Reliable and accurate readings made troubleshooting down equipment quicker and easier to get to the root cause of failure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old FaithfulI work in the electric utility sector and we issue these meters to our relay test crews. Every tester/technician carries two Fluke DMM's (87 and 289) and every person prefers their Fluke 87. These meters are simple to use, reliable, and respond quickly (we flash DC circuits to prove electrical paths). I ordered several new meters this year as replacements for our vintage 87's and will be ordering more as we replace older meters. It would be difficult to find a better alternative for this meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old FaithfulI have been using Fluke meters from the beginning of my career. Started with my first 87 II in A school for the US Navy. I have used other meters, but never liked any of them more than a Fluke. I now have the 87V and love how versatile it is. I use it at work as an industrial Maintenance Technician, and at home for everything else from automotive to HVAC, and basic electrical circuits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performer–but one nagging issueI bought this meter less than a week ago and found it to be very robust and accurate. However, when switched to DC amps, the meter always reads 0.004 A disconnected from any load, with or without leads attached. In order to get accurate DC current readings, I must zero it out with the REL (delta) button first. Then the readings are spot on with my Fluke 177. This doesn't sound right to me. Shouldn't the 87V read near 0.000 A in DC amps position?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial UserI work in an industrial environment and this is my go to device for everyday use. It is robust enough to handle the dirty and dusty environment, but accurate enough to handle precise measurements. Took me awhile to step up and buy a quality tool, but once I did, I haven't looked back. Test leads are excellent as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Simple and reliableI work directing people how to test machines remotely over the phone, and I'm always happy when they have a Fluke 87 meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good meter, bad supportIts a good meter, when the display went bad i contacted fluke to have it repaired, I was bluntly told that my version was too old and they didn't support it any longer but they offered to sell me a new one. The older meters are the ones that need support, not the newer ones. At their price point they should do better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Meter! Would have liked different leadsThe 87V is well known to be a rock solid meter. This has definitely been the case for me. No problems whatsoever with the meter. I mainly deal with circuit-level electronics so it is an annoyance that the current ranges default to AC current, but that is a minor complaint. It would be awesome if somehow this was user-configurable. My meter came with the extra-insulated leads but without the removable caps. I think they ship with removable caps now, but I could be mistaken. Fluke also sells leads with a retractable insulation. At the least, I would have preferred to receive the version with removable caps with the meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great meter, disappointing leadsJust got the meter and it so far the meter itself seems great.Was rather shocked by the leads provided. The cat IV rating is with cheap plastic caps that snap on, we will see how long those last. And the alligator clips just slide on so as soon as I get the first nick in the probe I imagine those will start failing.Was expecting a bit more from a company like Fluke. The meter is awesome so I guess I'll just have to by decent set of leads when these wear out in a few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Meter, horrible leadsI purchased 87V + electricians kit yesterday. The meter works great, but the leads are horrible. The leads have a plastic covering up to two millimeters from the edge of the tips preventing the leads from being able to be inserted into plug receptacles! This must be a marketing decision from Fluke, to ensure greater, forced sales of other leads. Any, and all electricians will require different leads, and this decision by Fluke is unacceptable, especially on the 87v which isn't cheap to begin with, and is their top tier model.I'm returning the meter today. There are many other manufactures to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multimeter for VFD output measurementsFor voltage and frequency measurements, this meter is fairly accurate. The filter reading option gives the voltage as non-RMS which acts like an analog meter to compliment the complex waveform RMS voltage reading. Frequency measurements where spot on when confirmed with Fluke Scope Meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Durable and perfect replacement for my 87 IIII purchased an 87 V as a replacement for my 87 III meter that I've had for 13+ years. Fluke couldn't fix the backlight on it, but everything else still worked 100%. Fluke offered me a trade-in but I couldn't part with a fantastic DMM like that. So, I bought an 87 V and gave my III to a friend that's learning to be an auto technician. I've had my 87 V for over a year now and its working great, and the 87 III is still working as well. I'd buy another without hesitation, but I'd get an additional set of leads for flexibility and the alligator clips too. Those are way too useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IndispensibleI bought this to replace an older Fluke 87 that I had for years [until it caught on fire at a jobsite - not of it's own failure though]. I use it every day - every function is easy to navigate, the backlight is crisp when needed, and the tolerance is exactly what I need for my work. I've bought two more [one for my personal use and a spare for the shop] and won't hesitate to get another if I ever have the need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around multi meter.I purchased this meter to use on building automation equipment and it has never let me down. The wide range of features and ability to measure 4-20mA signals helps me to troubleshoot issues without guess work. With Fluke, you know your buying a great quality product. I've dropped it from ceiling level without any internal damage. I would definitely purchase again but with the quality of build, I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new meter again.
