1 All ac voltage ranges are specified from 1 % to 100% of range. Because inputs below 1 % of range are not specified, it is normal for this and other true-rms meters to display non-zero readings when the test leads are disconnected from a circuit or are shorted together. For volts, crest factor of = 3 at 4000 counts, decreasing linearly to 1.5 at full scale. AC volts is ac-coupled. Auto-V LoZ, and ac mV are dc-coupled.
2 Temperature uncertainty (accuracy) does not include the error of the thermocouple probe.
3 Frequency is ac coupled, 5 Hz to 50 kHz for ac voltage. Frequency is dc coupled, 45 Hz to 5 kHz for ac current.

Q & A

Q: Is the Fluke 117 manual or auto-ranging?
A: Unlike many other multimeters, the Fluke 117 is both manual and auto-ranging.
 
Q: I need to measure AC and DC current?  Can I do that with the Fluke 117? 
A: Yes, the Fluke 117 will measure both AC and DC current, between 6.0A and 10.0A.  To do so, the circuit must be broken and the 117 inserted in series.  If you do not want to open the circuit and would prefer a less invasive test, you would need a clamp meter.
 
Q: Besides voltage and current, what other tests can I conduct with the Fluke 117.
A: The Fluke 117 can perform a variety of tests, including resistance, frequency, continuity, capacitance, and many others.  Please see the product specifications for full details.
 
Q: Will I also have to buy test leads?  Do they come with the meter?
A: You will not have to buy test leads - the Fluke TL75 are included.  The Fluke 117 also comes with a holster, user manual, and a 9 volt battery.
 
Q: Is there a way to hang the meter, so I don't have to hold it?  This way my hands are freed up to hold the test leads.
A: Yes.  The Fluke TPAK is a magnetic device which can be attached to any ferrous metal, or turned into a loop so you can hang it on a nail, hook, or any other object.  T

Q: How do I measure temperature with the Fluke 117?
A: To measure temperature with this unit you need the Fluke 80tk temperature adapter. If you need to measure temperature you may want to consider the Fluke 116 which has this feature built in or the Fluke 175 series which also has temperature features built in as well as a lifetime warranty.
