Fluke 566 Infrared Thermometer
The Fluke 566 is a dual purpose digital thermometer that can be used to either gain full contact measurements of temperature or alternatively can be used at a distance to read the surface of areas where it isn’t practically for the use to get near without risk of injury.
Although not as effective at measuring temperature as its bigger brother, the Fluke 568, the 566 is still a highly useful device that can be used to measure temperature across a wide range. When using the devices’ IR mode it can measure temperature from -40 to 650°C (-40 to 1202°F) and features a 30:1 distance-spot-ratio which allows measurements to be carried out at a distance. By connecting a type K thermocouple to this unit the Fluke 566 is also capable of carrying out full-contact temperature measurements between a range of -40 to 260°C (-40 to 500°F).
In order to make gaining IR temperature measurements as easy as possible the Fluke 566 is designed to be help comfortably in the hand, even when wearing thick gloves. Its design is pistol-shaped, allowing users to point the thermometer exactly where they need and line up their shot via the use of a built-in laser function.
The thermometer is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications, whether its measuring temperature inside an airduct, measuring the temperature output of pipes, checking electrical components and much more.
This infrared thermometer also comes with a number of additional functions such as a high quality dot matrix display, dual backlight functions, adjustable emissivity and datalogging capabilities. The user of the device can also adjust the devices’ high and low alarms, which will sound when a temperature below or above a set limit is detected.
Fluke 566 Infrared Thermometer Key Features
The Fluke 566 infrared/contact thermometer offers a broad range of measure from -40 to 1202°F. Advanced features are easily accessed with the soft-key buttons and graphical display. The Fluke 566 infrared/contact thermometer allows measurement of smaller objects from further away, with a distance-to-spot ratio of 30:1. Fluke 566 infrared/contact thermometers are compatible with all standard miniconnector K-type thermocouples which allows you to preserve your thermocouple investments.
The Fluke 566 infrared/contact thermometer adjustable emissivity feature, including built-in material table, makes it possible to measure a wide variety of surfaces. The 20 point data storage allows for easy data recall and download.
