General comments:The Fluke 179 is an excellent meter and I have used it for serious electronics hobby work for a several years now as well as measuring high AC / DC voltages and currents. It is very correct, dependable, and has some number of functions (measurements) it can do well. The ergonomic case design and the fact that the holster is integrated into the case design make it lasting, compact, and easy to work with, this one thing is what the 179 has over the 87-5. When I 1st got the 179, the beeper went out, I contact Fluke, sent it back to them, they repaired it no charge and calibrated it free of charge. So you have excellent support from Fluke with the lifetime warranty on this meter. Only thing is there’s some things the 179 can not do that the more feature rich Fluke 87-5 can do, so I wish I could’ve spent the extra 66 and got the Fluke 87-5. Fluke 179 andFluke 87-5:Here are the major differences between the 2, in all other things the 2 meters are same. Note how the 87-5 has more capability, in some number of cases you may need this capability, particularly in the higher temp measurements, the relative (or 0 out the display) button, and the capability to measure micro-amps. They are the 3 major features I ended up needing the most on the 179 that the 87-5 has. Also there was some times where capturing the peak of an AC wave form (voltage or current) could’ve been nice to have rather than the Max function (which does not generally catch the true peak).

Just about as good as you as you may be able to get for a digital multimeter. Fluke quality and durability (this unit is supplementing another Fluke 20+ year old model with some less features), great accuracy, lifetime warranty, and easy and convenient to use (once you attempt out all the features some times, everything will become easy and evident). you may not need the accuracy that this model has, or true RMS for measuring AC, or some of the other features. If you just make an occassional voltage check, maybe a cheapy from Radio Shack will do the job. But if you make your living with electrical equipment or electronics, or you’re a serious hobbyist, the features, usability, durability, and accuracy of this DMM make it worth to get. And the backlight feature has already proven itself useful, the 1st time I used it.
For the most part, you do not have to think about this meter’s restrictions, it just works precisely. It has excellent ergonomics, from the smooth rotating switch, to the super-fast bar graph answer, to the super-fast continuity beep, and the fast autoranging. All the functions work the way you’d expect them to, and the modes are easy to access with the rotating switch and yellow button. No complex menus. The min/max function captures fast peaks and valleys. The autohold is nice for probing around crowded and possibly dangerous spots – you set it in autohold mode, then you may be able to ignore the meter and look only at your probes. When the meter senses a good stable voltage reading, it beeps and holds that reading. Now you may be able to take your probes away and look at your meter again to see what the reading was.
FP FoodPro Food Safety Thermometer, -20 Degrees to +390 Degrees F Temperature Range
The Fluke FoodPro infrared thermometer FLUKE-179/EDA2 takes noncontact temperature measurement and can be used to monitor the surface temperatures of food merchandise and foodservice equipment. This thermometer measures temperature from -30 to +200 degrees C (-20 to +390 degrees F) with an accuracy of + or – 1 degree C (+ or – 2 degrees F) from 0 to 65 degrees C (32 to 150 degrees F) and + or – 1. 5% of the reading above 65 degrees C (150 degrees F). It has a 2. 5:1 infrared distance-to-spot percentage with LED illumination for highlighting the measurement area. Go/No-Go lights point to when food is in an unsafe temperature range (40 to 140 degrees F) to meet Hazard Analysis of important Control Points (HACCP) terms.
