Everett, Wash. (Manufacturing.net) — Fluke Corporation has today introduced the Fluke VT04 Visual IR Thermometer, which is a troubleshooting tool with a built-in digital camera and thermal heat map overlay. The company says this combination helps bridge the gap between traditional IR thermometers and infrared cameras.
Fluke based the VT04 on its previously-released VT02, although the new version has four times the resolution and automatic alarm features. The company says it is ideal for frontline troubleshooting for electrical systems, industrial maintenance, HVAC/R and in automotive applications.
Additional features of the VT04 thermometer include:
- Built-in intelligence, so that issues can be detected without specific training.
- Alarm features for troubleshooting stubborn intermittent issues, such as a hi-lo temperature alarm that flashes on the screen if temperatures are beyond the selected range.
- A time-lapse image capture that can be set to capture images in 30-second to one-hour intervals.
- The capability to display and save images in full digital, full infrared, or in three blended modes (25, 50 and 75 percent).
