Introducing the Fluke 62 MAX and 62 MAX+ IR Thermometers: Small in size. Big on toughness.
Designed with your on-the-job needs in mind, the new Fluke 62 MAX and 62 MAX+ infrared thermometers are everything you'd expect from the experts in measurement tools. Small in size, extremely accurate and very easy to use. IP54 rated for dust and water resistance. Precise yet rugged enough to take a 3-meter drop. In fact, the 62 MAX and 62 MAX+ are so tough, they're the only IR thermometers around you can handle without care.
The Fluke 62 MAX is ideal for quick temperature scans of systems to look for anything from unusual hot spots that signal electrical and electro-mechanical malfunctions to undesirable air intake/output patterns in the building envelope. Because infrared measurement does not require making contact with the surface being measured, technicians can make the measurements from a distance, away from moving machinery or live electrical connections.
The 62 MAX has a distance-to-spot ratio of 10:1 and measures temperatures from 30°C to 500°C with an accuracy ± 1.5% of the reading. The 62 MAX+ has a distance-to-spot ratio of 12:1 and measures 30°C to 650°C with an accuracy ± 1.0% of the reading.
Both IR thermometers operate on a single AA battery.
Q & A
Q: What is the Fluke 62 Max+ ?
A: The Fluke 62 Max+ is an infrared thermometer, which allows users to take temperatures by simply pointing the tool and pulling the trigger.
Q: What is the temperature range it can measure?
A: The Fluke 62 Max+ can measure -22° F to 1202° F.
Q: Do I have to be immediately next to the object I want to take the temperature of?
A: You do not need to be standing next to the object being measured. You just point the 62 Max+ and pull the trigger.
Q: How durable is this product? I will be using this in the field – it may be bumped around and dropped.
A: The Fluke 62 Max+ is drop tested for 9.8 feet (3 meters). Like all Fluke products, this was designed with the user in mind, and made to withstand everyday use in a demanding environment.
Q: I need to measure a variety of different objects. Some are reflective, some are dull, and some are painted black. Is that possible?
A: The Fluke 62 Max+ is designed for emissivity ranging from 0.10 to 1.00.
Q: What is emissivity?
A: Emissivity is the ratio of energy radiated (invisible heat) by a material to the energy radiated by a black body at the same temperature. IR thermometers recognize reflected, transmitted, and emitted heat, so the device must be adjusted to read only emitted heat in order to provide a surface temperature. A black body will have emissivity of 1 and objects will have a value between 0 and 1
