Review of Fluke 365 Digital Clamp Multimeter

A couple of weeks ago I was shipped a Fluke 365 Digital Clamp Multimeter from Fluke Corporation.

I was asked to simply use it however I wanted to. I could take it to work and use it there or just keep it at home and use it only when needed. Or I could do both and I chose both.

I have used it for something almost every day since it arrived.

I asked the representative if he would like an all-out testing and review or just casual use review. He stated very matter of fact “Tell me what you think of it, how you feel about the meter.”

I decided that I would do a brief review with the Specs some video footage (don’t worry not close to the long drawn out video like the 362 and the power supply). I have started getting some modern video gear and editing software so this one just shows some uses and showcases some of the features.

The Fluke 365:

The 365 kind of falls into a mid-level meter among the very large line of Fluke meters. The average price seems to be around $230.00. This is not a budget meter it is however a meter that may well last you until retirement.

I have known people to have Fluke meters for 20 or more years. They are just that well made. Fluke does not accept quality issues of any kind.

The meter is compact and light. Simple to use with auto ranging and the clamp of course. I almost forgot to mention…. The clamp is removable… You have about 3 feet of wire connecting the clamp to the body of the meter. I love this feature.

In very cramped spaces it makes life so much easier. If you have ever had to repair industrial machinery then you can appreciate this feature very much.

Removing it does not seem to affect the accuracy at all.

I have used several types and styles of clamp meters but this is the first one that it makes my job easier and much of the time more efficient.

I can without hesitation recommend this meter to anyone that is looking for a reliable, accurate, light weight detachable clamp for just a touch over $200.00…. Did I also mention it is a Fluke.

I hope you enjoy the video below. I tried to make it long enough to allow you to see the 365’s features but not so long that it became a motion picture.

It has been my pleasure to have been given the opportunity to review this meter.


The awards that I mention in the video and could not remember at the time are.

Award: Fluke 365

  • MOTOR Magazine Top 20 Tools Award
  • TechShop Top 5 Tools Award (Automotive)
  • Control Engineering, Engineer's Choice Award (This is an extremely hard awards to win)
