FLIR Announces Three Electrical Test and Measurement Meters with Thermal Imaging
Latest Thermal Imaging-Equipped Test and Measurement Products Feature FLIR Infrared Guided Measurement to Help Electrical Pros Spot Problems
WILSONVILLE, Ore. – October 9, 2017 – FLIR announced today six test and measurement products arriving later this year, including two digital multimeters and a clamp meter that feature FLIR’s IGM™ (Infrared Guided Measurement). Powered by the FLIR Lepton® microcamera thermal core, the FLIR DM166 and FLIR DM285 digital multimeters and the FLIR CM275 clamp meter feature a built-in screen to show heat caused by electrical faults, allowing professionals to find issues faster and more safely.
All the latest FLIR electrical test and measurement products offer features that allow professionals to efficiently test and troubleshoot electrical, electro-mechanical, and heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) systems. These thermal imaging products offer the added benefit of visualizing heat and highlighting temperature anomalies on a built-in display. Whether facing cluttered wires, complex panels, or clogged condenser coils, IGM guides users without requiring any direct contact with the test site, increasing both speed and user safety.
The new products include:
- FLIR DM285: The 18-function, 160x120 thermal resolution FLIR DM285 ($699.99) is FLIR’s most advanced digital multimeter, measuring temperatures up to 400 degrees Celsius. Along with IGM, the FLIR DM285 features onboard storage for measurements and images, as well as wireless connectivity to streamline the inspection process and simplify data collection, sharing, and reporting.
- FLIR CM275: FLIR’s newest, most advanced 600-amp AC/DC clamp meter ($699.99) offers 160x120 thermal resolution to quickly highlight areas of concern. The FLIR CM275 has a wide range of measurement functions, plus a narrow jaw, built-in worklights, and a screen that’s more than 40 percent larger than the previous model.
- FLIR DM166: FLIR’s most affordable digital multimeter and thermal imager combination, the FLIR DM166 ($499.99) features 80x60 thermal resolution, broad multimeter test functions, and the flexibility for use in both high- and low-voltage applications.
Each product has a rugged, drop-tested design and carries a 10-year warranty on both the product and the thermal detector.
“With the introduction of these latest test and measurement products, FLIR has strengthened its already extensive and powerful suite of products for electrical professionals,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. “The new IGM products demonstrate our ability to leverage thermal imaging in ways that improve the productivity and safety for the professionals who use them.”
FLIR’s announcement also includes three new professional-grade digital multimeters: the FLIR DM91 ($274.99) with datalogging and wireless connectivity for industrial or benchtop work; the FLIR DM66 ($149.99), offering the widest range of test features for electrical and field service professionals; and FLIR’s most affordable, general-purpose multimeter, the FLIR DM62 ($129.99).
All new products will be on display this week at the North American Electrical Contractors (NECA) Show in Seattle, Washington in Booth 619. The CM275, DM285, DM166, and DM91 will be available in the fourth quarter 2017, while the DM62, DM64, and DM66 will be available in the first quarter 2018.
