Fluke Corp.: Visual Infrared Thermometer
The Fluke® VT02 visual infrared (IR) thermometer is a troubleshooting camera with an infrared heat map. It fills the gap between single-point infrared thermometers and high-resolution thermal imagers (IR cameras). The tool 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. The VT02 instantly detects problems using blended thermal and digital imagery. It will display and save images in full-visual, full-infrared, or 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. A temperature reading is provided at the center point. Images are saved to the micro-SD card, eliminating the need to write down single or multiple measurements. Images from the VT02 can be imported into SmartView® analysis and reporting software, included with the VT02, to produce professional reports that document problems detected or repairs made for management and customer review.
