New FLIR test and measurement clamp meter offers datalogging, wireless connectivity and infrared guided measurement technology

FLIR recently announced the FLIR CM275 industrial imaging clamp meter, which combines thermal imaging with electrical measurement features in one powerful inspection, troubleshooting, and diagnostic tool. Offering electricians a visual way to identify hot spots and overloaded circuits, the FLIR CM275 makes inspecting and servicing plant equipment and facilities safer and more efficient.

FLIR’s IGM (Infrared Guided Measurement) uses thermal imaging technology to visually guide users to the precise location of a problem, pinpointing issues faster and more efficiently. Bluetooth wireless connectivity allows for direct communication with the FLIR InSite™ professional workflow management app (optional), while a robust package makes this clamp meter suitable for any rugged environment.

FLIR’s newest, most advanced 600-amp AC/DC clamp meter offers 160×120 thermal resolution (19,200 temperature measurements) to quickly highlight areas of concern. It has a wide range of measurement functions, plus a narrow jaw, built-in worklights, and a screen that is more than 40-percent larger than the previous model. Onboard data storage is available for 10 sets of 40k scalar measurements (100 images), with recall function for data review.

Flexible battery options include the long-life FLIR TA04 Li-Poly rechargeable battery and/or standard AA batteries. A no-tool battery compartment door ensures quick and easy battery changes. The CM275 comes with a 10-year limited warranty on both the product and the detector.

The FLIR CM275 is now available for £595 (excl. VAT) through established FLIR distribution partners and the FLIR.com store.For more information visit www.flir.com/IGM-Clamps

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
