Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
i got reference from the book call " industrial electrical troubleshooting" by Lynn Lundquist. page 46 Quote " you should alson be aware that a standard ohm-meter cannot be used for continuity testing on a live circuit. Unless your meter is specifically designed for live circuit testing on the ohm or continuity settings"
that is why make me wonder can fluke t5-1000 cable live testing on the ohm mode.
The T5-1000 cannot do that. I just spoke with a Fluke representative and there is no meter in the Fluke product range that can do what you want.I am sorry it is not the answer you want. I am an industrial electrician and controls guy and I can honestly tell you that I am not aware of ANY handheld meter or other device that can measure resistance or impedance on a live circuit.Can you tell me what it is you are trying to determine? Is there a reason why circuit has to be energized to test it?Please let me know so that we can continue.RegardsSteve
Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be glad to assist you. Yes the T-5 will do both voltage and continuity. When making a test the first thing it would indicate is the voltage present between the leads. Not having voltage it would alert for continuity with an audible tone and light. I use the tester on a daily basis and find it to be very serviceable. It is what is called a Volt/Con for that reason.
