Affordable digital device combines thermal imaging with precision electrical measurement

FLIR recently announced the FLIR DM166 thermal imaging multimeter with Infrared Guided Measurement (IGM), the industry’s most affordable digital multimeter/thermal imager combination. The FLIR DM166 features 80×60 thermal resolution, broad multimeter test functions, and the flexibility for use in both high and low voltage applications.

Designed to provide faster troubleshooting in applications such as electrical distribution, electro-mechanical systems, HVAC/R, and electronics, the FLIR DM166 features a FLIR Lepton thermal microcamera core that visually guides users to the precise location of a problem. The feature-packed multimeter helps users pinpoint issues faster, and then troubleshoot complex electrical distribution and electro-mechanical systems more effectively and efficiently.

Thermal imaging is a non-contact temperature measurement method, allowing the user to more safely scan for overheating system components. Additionally, with a rugged, drop-tested design and the safety rating electrical and HVAC professionals’ need, the FLIR DM166 is field-ready for even the most demanding applications.

The FLIR DM166 carries a 10-year warranty on both the product and the thermal detector. It is now available for £424 (Excl. VAT) through established FLIR distribution partners and the FLIR.com store.

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.
