Fluke has introduced the new Fluke 62 Max and 62 Max+ Infrared Thermometers. These rugged, accurate, easy-to-use test tools are dust, moisture and drop resistant, making them ideal for the harsh conditions faced by technicians in electrical, service, HVAC, process, industrial and facilities maintenance applications.
The Fluke 62 Max/62 Max+ are 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. The Fluke 62 Max+ features dual, rotating lasers to accurately identify the measurement spot size. Because infrared measurements do not require making contact with the surface being measured, technicians can make the measurements from a safe distance, away from moving machinery or live electrical connections.
The Fluke 62 Max/62 Max+ survive 3 metre drops to wooden floors, are IP54 rated to withstand rain, splashing liquids, dust and dirt, and are small enough to carry comfortably on a tool belt all day. They are easy to use with trigger click measurement, and a multi-angle, backlit display means they are easy to read even in badly lit areas.
The 62 Max has a distance-to-spot ratio of 10:1 and measures temperatures from -30°C to 500°C with an accuracy of ±1.5% of the reading. The 62 Max+ has a distance-to-spot ration of 12:1 and measures -30°C to 650°C with an accuracy of ±1.0% of the reading.
Both IR thermometers operate on a single AA battery.
