Fluke debuts 279 FC digital multimeter with thermal imager
June 2, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jun. 2, 2016 – Fluke has launched what it says is the first test tool to integrate a full-featured true RMS (TRMS) digital multimeter (DMM) with a thermal camera in one device to speed troubleshooting.
Using the Fluke 279 FC thermal multimeter, technicians can check for hot spots in fuses, wires, insulators, connectors, splices and switches with the imager and then troubleshoot and analyze issues with the DMM. “By combining two powerful test tools into one, electricians and technicians can carry fewer tools and have a higher level of confidence they have the tools handy to solve problems,” says the company. The thermal multimeter features 15 electrical measurement functions including AC/DC voltage, resistance, continuity, capacitance, diode test, min/max, and frequency. The optional iFlex clamp can wrap around conductors and wires in “tight, hard-to-reach spaces” and expands its measurement capabilities to include AC current up to 2500 A.
