Intrinsically-safe IR thermometer

A new, intrinsically-safe, infra-red (IR) thermometer, designed for electrical and HVAC installation and maintenance technicians and plant maintenance professionals working in hazardous (Zones 1 & 2) gas and vapour environments in process industries such as petroleum, oil and gas, chemical and pharmaceutical has been introduced by Fluke. With a 50:1 distance-to-spot ratio, it provides accurate measurements far away from inaccessible or potentially dangerous locations.

The rugged, easy-to-use Fluke 568Ex Intrinsically Safe Infrared Thermometer provides two-in-one, non-contact or contact, temperature measurement from -40degC to +800degC with ±1% accuracy. The three simple soft-key buttons allow quick navigation, via the graphical display, of advanced features to adjust emissivity (using a built-in material table), to start data logging for up to 99 points of data, or to turn alarms on and off. MIN, MAX, AVG and DIF functions help to quickly identify problems, while audible and visual alarms provide instant alerts to measurements outside the user’s set limits.

Two levels of backlight on the Fluke 568Ex ensure easy reading in most conditions. Supplied with a K-type thermocouple bead probe for contact measurement, it is also compatible with other non-Ex K-type mini-connector thermocouple probes. The Fluke 568Ex comes complete with a conductive hard carrying case, safe for carrying into hazardous areas.
