I have 2 Fluke T150 and the cable broke on both and need to be changed.Is being 2 years now with heavy use so is not a surprise.
Dont want to use a normal flexible cable.
I have seen on Fluke website that is suppose to be a special cable to withstand the pulling, bending as much as possible.It is 2core and 0.75mm diameter.
Anyone knows what is the name for these kind of cables? I need only 2 meters.

Contact fluke and they should replace them. There was a recall last year on these instruments for faulty cable that caused premature breakage.

Proof of purchase ? I'm sure they'll honour it as I think it was all T150s produced up to July 2018


Even if they don't, I'd honestly rather buy new than modify a device used for potentially life saving purposes.

It's unlikely the cable will be available anywhere.
Manufactures will have it made to thier own spec.
If it was available you'd have to buy a full reel.
No-one would stock it on the off chance someone would buy 2 mtrs.

If all of the above is wrong and you can buy it, the meter will need re calibrating with the new cable fitted.

Follow the recall instructions, it'll cost you nothing.
Fluke will be able to determine it's serial number without a label and if it's a recall model you'll get a brand new one in it's place.

If it's after August 2018 they'll probably give you a new one under warranty anyway.

Seems like Win, win, or win to me.

The serial number should be inside the case as well.
