Infrared thermometers with dust, water, drop protection

June 21st, 2012, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Comtest has announced Fluke’s newly launched 62 Max and 62 Max+ infrared thermometers – accurate, rugged, and designed specifically to be dust, water and drop resistant. This makes them ideal for the harsh conditions faced by technicians in electrical, service, HVAC, process, industrial and facilities maintenance applications. Temperature is often the first indication of potential problems in electrical and mechanical applications. So, how does the technician determine if an electrical panel has a hot spot, a motor is overheating or an HVAC system is inefficient? The answer is an infrared (IR) thermometer. The company’s handheld, non-contact IR thermometers instantly measure equipment temperatures in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. Early detection of abnormal temperatures means early correction of problems. The Fluke 62 Max+ delivers: rugged performance; water and dust resistance; is small and easy to use; and has dual, rotating lasers to accurately identify spot size. The Fluke 62 Max is ideal for quick temperature scans of systems to look for anything from unusual hot spots that signal electrical and electro-mechanical malfunctions to undesirable air intake/output patterns in the building envelope.
