Healthcare facility professionals work with mission-critical equipment every day – failure is really not an option. Medical businesses must be able to face life-and-death issues around the clock, so maintaining constant uptime is as crucial as finding ways to save on energy costs and adhering to stringent regulatory requirements. Comtest offers a full suite of Fluke test tools to monitor, troubleshoot and repair a medical facility. Why Fluke test and measurement equipment? Because it is the industry benchmark against which all other tools are measured.

The facility director’s focus is on safety, cost reduction and regulatory compliance. Issues faced include controlling energy costs, the promoting of an environment of care, maintaining emergency preparedness and ensuring regulatory compliance. To this end, Comtest offers Fluke’s thermal imagers, infrared windows and power quality analysers.
