fluke 279 fc digital thermal multimeterFluke is changing the way you see digital multimeters with the introduction of the Fluke 279 FC – the first digital thermal multimeter. It’s a two-in-one-tool – a thermographer and a multimeter.

The new 279 FC is a full-featured digital multimeter with integrated thermal imaging helps users find, repair, validate, and report many electrical issues quickly, improving the ability to solve problems.

Thermal imaging multimeters are a first-line troubleshooting tool for electrical equipment that can check hot spots on high-voltage equipment and transformers from a safe distance, detect heating of fuses, wires, insulators, connectors, splices and switches. Scanning with the 279 FC’s thermal imager reveals many electrical issues quickly and from a safe distance. By combining two tools into one, the thermal multimeter lightens the load and increases productivity.

The large, full-color LCD screen makes for easier and clearer viewing of images and readings. The 10 hour+ rechargeable battery is designed to keep you going all day long under normal conditions.

Save time and improve the reliability of your maintenance data by wirelessly syncing measurements directly to an asset record or work order using the Fluke Connect system.
