Fluke recall: ETCS (SS) May.

1. Fluke initiated a recall of certain Digital Clamp Meters due to a potential short circuit in the clamp meter, which may lead to inaccurate or no voltage reading on a circuit energized with hazardous voltage. The false indication also poses the threat of potential shock or thermal burn. Fluke has received three reports of clamp meters displaying an incorrect voltage reading. All ships should discontinue the use of these recalled meters immediately and contact Fluke Corporation for a free replacement.

2. This recall involves fluke digital clamp meters:

Model 333: serial no. 97010000 to 98880240 NSN 6625-01-498-2964 Model 334/334A: serial no. 97010000 to 98870101 NSN 6625-01-526-2029/00-799-8539 Model 335/335A: serial no. 97010000 to 98860104 NSN 6625-01-547-5137/00-445-3328 Model 336: serial no. 96220000 to 98900400 NSN 6625-01-460-7608 Model 337: serial no. 96070000 to 98890607 NSN 6625-01-494-2133

Serial numbers that begin with "s" or serial numbers followed by "r" are not included in the recall. Fluke and the model number are printed on the front of the meter and the serial number on the back. The instrument body is yellow, red, and black. These clamp on ammeters measure 0 to 600 volts alternating current (vac), 0 to 600 volts direct current (vdc) and 0 to 400, 600, or 1000 amps alternating current.
