13 Options and Accessories

Three options are available. These options can be installed either at the factory or in the field. The following discussions pertain to the field-installable option kits:

• The Battery Kit (Option -01K) consists of a rechargeable, 8 V, lead-acid battery, with battery bracket and charger assembly. The battery has a typical operating time of eight hours and is fully operable at ambient temperatures between 0 and 50°C.

• The IEEE-488 Interface Kit (Option -05K) consists of a printed circuit assembly, connecting cables, and mounting hardware. This option provides full programmability, external trigger input, and automated calibration. The IEEE-488 computer interface command set is identical to the RS-232 interface commands wherever possible.

• Option -15K combines Options -01K and -05K as a single kit.

The Fluke 45 Dual Display Multimeter can be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack panel on either the right-hand or left-hand side using the Fluke M00-200-634 Rack Mount Kit.

Accessories for the Fluke 45 are listed in Table 1-1.
