2-in-1 combo test instrument
January 2019, Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration
Thermal imagers are invaluable to troubleshoot electrical equipment, panels and transformers, but electricians and maintenance technicians do not often have access to one when they need it. Comtest now offers the Fluke 279 FC TRMS Thermal Multimeter, which integrates a full-featured digital multimeter with a thermal camera, in one device.
The 279 FC allows technicians to check for hot spots in fuses, wires, insulators, connectors, splices and switches with the imager, and then troubleshoot and analyse issues with the DMM. This combination of two powerful test tools into one, means electricians and technicians need to carry fewer troubleshooting tools.
The thermal multimeter features 15 electrical measurement functions including AC/DC voltage, resistance, continuity, capacitance, diode test, min/max and frequency. The optional iFlex clamp can wrap around conductors and wires in tight, hard-to-reach spaces and expands its measurement capabilities to include AC current up to 2500 A. The large colour LCD screen ensures clear images.
The wireless 279 FC is part of Fluke Connect – a system of wireless test tools that communicate via the Fluke Connect app, or Fluke Connect Assets software, a cloud-based solution that gathers measurements to provide a comprehensive view of critical equipment status – allowing technicians to record and share both thermal images and electrical measurements in real time via smartphones or tablets, and automatically upload info to the cloud. Reports can be created and shared from the job site via email and collaborate in real time with remote colleagues via ShareLive video calls, increasing productivity in the field.
The CAT III 1000 V, CAT IV 600 V safety-rated thermal multimeter has a rechargeable lithium ion battery that lasts up to a full work day (10+ hours) under normal conditions.
