The main draw of the FLK 3000, apart from being a great all around multimeter suitable for almost any purpose, is definitely the wireless functionality.

Since you’ll be able to take your measurements from a stunning twenty meters away, you can swiftly troubleshoot problems without the need to be in almost direct contact with a high voltage panel.
The ability to take readings from multiple wireless modules can save you a lot of time and frustration in the field as well, making for a quicker diagnosis, less time spent on your part, and happier clients. You’ll also be able to record and save your findings, as well as utilize this device’s wireless functions from a laptop. You might just find this to be a lifesaver, whether you’re baffled and need to turn over the readings to someone with more experience, or just to record one of the various statistical anomalies that sometimes occur with a high energy system.
Even better, the wireless modules come in a variety of different types and not just voltage probes. You’ll find a wide variety of wireless modules are available, including amperage clamps, temperature probes, and flexible current loops.
This isn’t a gimmicky meter though, the FLK 3000 would be a great buy even without the wireless functionality. It has a considerable degree of accuracy and still measures pretty much anything you’ll need to know about considering an electrical system, whether you want to measure amperage, voltage, resistance, or capacitance you’ll be covered.
It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty, which will cover you in the event of failure as long as you stay within the manufacturer’s specifications. The only real drawback here is that in order to use the FLK 3000’s unique functions you’ll have to make a somewhat costly investment into the wireless modules you think you’ll need and some of them can be rather costly. This meter is still a sound investment however, and the wireless capabilities of its add-ons will quickly earn their keep.
