RS Announces Availability of Fluke™ 710 Tester

07 February 2019

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global multi-channel distributor, has announced the availability of the Fluke™ 710 mA Loop Valve Tester, which is an easy-to-use tool that greatly simplifies the testing of control valves, enabling the quick measurement of critical valve readings using a simple two-wire connection.

The Fluke 710 tester provides quick checks of control valves while they are in place in a system. Therefore, the tester enables technicians to make fast and confident decisions on whether maintenance, and potentially system downtime, is required or not.

The built-in pre-configured valve-test routines offered by the Fluke 710 include: manually changing the mA signal and viewing the HART position and pressure variable information; full range ramping of the signal while recording the position or applied pressures, in terms of percentage from 0 to 100 to 0%; evaluating the valve’s response to changes in the mA input; speed tests to determine how fast the valve can open or close; and bump and partial stroke tests to test valves over a portion of their range.
