Fluke Corp.’s thermometer is a troubleshooting camera with an infrared (IR) heat map. It combines the visual insight of a thermal imager, the visual images of a digital camera and the point-and-shoot convenience of an IR thermometer. It 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, 50 and 75 percent). Markers pinpoint hot and cold spots, indicating the hottest temperature with a red box and the coldest with a blue box. It provides a temperature reading at the center point. It saves images to a micro-SD card, eliminating the need to write down single or multiple measurements. Users can import images into SmartView analysis and reporting software to produce professional reports that document detected problems or repairs made for management and customer review.
