Fluke has introduced a visual infrared (IR) thermometer — a troubleshooting tool with an IR heat map — for electricians and industrial, HVAC and automotive technicians.

The VT02 thermometer is designed to fill the gap between single-point IR thermometers and high-resolution thermal imagers.

According to the company, the combined tool offers the visual insight of a thermal imager, the visual images of a digital camera and the point-and-shoot convenience of an IR thermometer.

The compact VT02 instantly detects problems using blended thermal and digital imagery. It will display and save images as full visual, full infrared or in three blended modes (25 per cent, 50 per cent and 75 per cent).

Key features and benefits

  • Conducting inspections for electrical, industrial, HVAC/R and automotive applications is faster with the Fluke VT02 than an infrared thermometer, which requires multiple readings and manually recorded results.
  • Markers pinpoint hot and cold spots — indicating the hottest temperature with a red box and the coldest with a blue box; a temperature reading is provided at the centre point.
  • Images are saved to a micro-SD card, eliminating the need to write down single or multiple measurements.
  • The VT02 operates with focus-free simplicity, expanding the user base from senior to junior technicians and broadening the applications for in-house staff as well as creating new business opportunities for service contractors.
  • Images from the VT02 can be imported into the Smartview analysis and reporting software, included with the thermometer, to produce professional reports that document problems detected, or repairs made, for management and customer review.

Fluke Calibration

Fluke Corporation was founded in 1948, specialising in electrical test and measurement products. Early in its history, Fluke recognised that the very best electrical metrology would be needed to support its products and undertook to develop this capability. From this activity, the calibration business was born. Over the years, many breakthrough calibration products were introduced, establishing Fluke as a leader in electrical metrology.

In 2000, Fluke acquired Wavetek Precision Measurement. In 2001, Fluke’s calibration business expanded into the temperature field with the acquisition of Hart Scientific and then into pressure and gas flow with the acquisition of DH Instruments (2007), followed by Ruska and Pressurements (2010).

The unified business’s unmatched breadth and depth in metrology puts Fluke Calibration in a unique position to deliver today’s and tomorrow’s calibrations solutions to customers who demand the very best, supported by an organisation they can count on for the long term.
