CHICAGO - Fluke Corp. is introducing four new models to its line of infrared (IR) thermometers. The Fluke 62 Mini is a general-purpose non-contact thermometer, while the Fluke 570 series, comprised of three models, is designed specifically for predictive maintenance. All are designed for measuring rotating, electrically live, dangerously hot, or hard-to-reach objects.

According to the company, the new Fluke 62 Mini makes basic temperature checks quick, easy, and accessible to everyone. It is rugged enough for industrial environments, small enough to keep handy, and inexpensive, says the manufacturer. It has a temperature range of -30 to 500°C (-20 to 932°F), a distance-to-spot (D:S) ratio of 10:1, and it uses a popular single-dot laser sighting system that indicates the center of the measurement spot.

Predictive maintenance requires precise tools for condition monitoring and analysis. Powerful optics, an advanced sighting system, very fast response time, and adjustable emissivity make the Fluke 572, 574, and 576 suitable for such demanding applications.
