Fluke 572 Infrared Thermometer

Fluke 572, Infrared ThermometerThe Fluke 572 infrared thermometer features a broad temperature range, superior optics, and the advanced extra-bright three-dot laser sighting system. These features, in addition to many others, make the non-contact Fluke 572 infrared thermometer one of the most advanced laser thermometers in the industry.

Accurate measurements depend in part on accurately sighting a target. Handheld Fluke 572 infrared thermometers have a sighting system designed to precisely track the infrared path as seen by the sensors. This enables the Fluke 572 infrared thermometer's advanced coaxial three-dot laser sighting to accurately show both the center and the edges of the spot being measured, regardless of the distance from the target.

The non-contact Fluke 572 infrared thermometer has laser sighting, which appears twice as bright to the human eye as normal lasers while maintaining the same safety rating as less bright lasers. Fluke 572 infrared thermometers offers laser sighting, making precise sighting easier in a variety of lighting conditions and distances.

The Fluke 572 infrared thermometer has a Close Focus (CF) option, which lets you accurately measure very small areas at the focus point – where the IR beam narrows. Paired with the advanced coaxial laser sighting system, extremely small objects 0.24 in (6 mm) at 11.4 in (300 mm) can be easily measured with the Fluke 572 infrared thermometer.

The non-contact Fluke 572 infrared thermometer is ideal for electrical maintenance and refrigeration troubleshooting.

Infrared Temperature Measurement - Technology Explained:
Infrared thermometers measure temperature from a distance by detecting the amount of thermal electromagnetic radiation emitted from the object being measured. This allows users to accurately measure surface temperatures in hazardous or hard-to-reach places, or other situations in which non-contact temperature measurement is desirable. Infrared thermometer technology is useful in a wide range of applications – including industrial, laboratory, food service, fire fighting, hobby, and home use.

While the technology is relatively simple, the myriad of names given to these devices can be confusing. "Laser Thermometers" makes reference to the laser that helps aim the thermometer. "IR Sensors" and "IR Thermometers" make use of a common abbreviation for "infrared". "Non-Contact Thermometers" is descriptive of the device's ability to measure temperature from a distance. "Radiation Pyrometers" is a scientific/technical term for these devices.
