The new Fluke 1623-2 and 1625-2 GEO Earth Ground Testers offer data storage and download capabilities via USB port. World class accessories will simplify and speed up testing time.
The Fluke 1623-2 and 1625-2 earth ground testers are able to measure earth ground loop resistances using only clamps. With this test method, two clamps are placed around the earth ground rod and each are connected to the tester. No earth ground stakes are used at all. A known, fixed voltage is induced by one clamp and the current is measured using the second clamp. Then the tester automatically determines the resistance of the earth ground rod.
This test method only works if a bonded earth ground system exists for the building or structure under test, but most are. If there is only one path to ground, like at many residential applications, the Stakeless method will not provide an acceptable value and the Fall of Potential test method must be used.
With Stakeless testing, the earth ground rod does not need to be disconnected—leaving the bonded earth ground system intact during test. Gone are the days of spending time placing and connecting stakes for each earth ground rod on your system a major time saver. You can also perform earth ground tests in places you’ve not considered before: inside buildings, power pylons, or anywhere you don’t have access to soil.
Automatic check if error is kept within the limits required by IEC61557-5.
If after a measurement of probe-, auxiliary earth electrode- and earthing resistance, a measurement error of higher than 30 % is assumed because of the influencing conditions (see diagram), the display shows a warning symbol "!" and a notice that RS or RH are too high.
Why is it important to test ground systems?

I have this question too (0)
The US National Electrical Code (NEC) gives two principle reasons for grounding a facility.
• Stabilize the voltage to earth during normal operation.
• Limit the voltage rise created by lightning, line surges or unintentional contact with higher-voltage lines.

What is the benefit of using the Stakeless (Clamp-on) method of testing?
The "stakeless" or "clamp-on" method allows you to measure the impedance of a series loop of ground electrodes. The test is simple and it may be performed on an electrode that is connected to a working electric service.
