Temperature Measurement

High-temperature infrared thermometer

March 2022 Temperature Measurement

Comtest is offering the highly accurate Fluke 572-2, a high-temperature infrared thermometer for extreme heat conditions over long distances. Typical applications are in:

• Manufacturing: repair and maintenance of motors and pumps with data logging.

• Electrical HVAC installation: repair and maintenance of panels, fuses, circuit breakers, compressors, ducts and remote access vents.

• Power utility: measurement of nodes between power transmission and distribution.

• Metals: maintenance and quality control where there is monitoring of temperature during the process.

• Petrochemicals: maintenance of the exterior of the kiln (temperature), monitoring the surface temperature of the reformer tubes.

The Fluke 572-2 measures between -30°C to 900°C with ±1% accuracy. Measurements from further away are accurate with a 60:1 distance-to-spot ratio with dual laser sighting for fast, accurate targeting. It displays current temperature plus Max, Min, Dif and Avg temperature with adjustable emissivity and predefined emissivity tables.

The unit features a multiple-language (user-selectable) interface and is compatible with standard K-type mini-connector thermocouple probes (KTC). It is shipped with a USB 2.0 computer interface cable, FlukeView Forms documenting software and the standard Fluke 2-year warranty.
