Two-in-one infrared and contact thermometer with an innovative dot matrix display.

Just when you thought advanced IR temperature measurement should be easier! With a straight-forward user interface and soft-key menus, the Fluke 568 Infrared Thermometer make even complex measurements easy. Quickly navigate and adjust emissivity, start data logging, or turn on and off alarms, with just a few pushes of a button.

With a rugged, easy-to-use, ergonomic design, the Fluke 568 Infrared Thermometer can stand up to tough industrial, electrical, and mechanical environments, features broad infrared (IR) temperature measurement functionality, an on-screen menu system and a dot-matrix display enabling users to take even complex measurements quickly, easily, and from greater distances.

Also, combines contact and non-contact temperature measurement capability in one single, easy-to-use tool, providing a total and convenient temperature measurement solution for industrial, electrical and maintenance professionals. Has a broad temperature measurement range from -40°C to 800°C /-40°F to 1472°F at one percent measurement accuracy, making them appropriate for a wide variety of inspection applications.

With a user interface designed for intuitive operation and available in six languages, users can access advanced features such as adjustable emissivity, alarms and data logging with a few pushes of a button via a soft-key menu displayed on the dot-matrix LCD screen. The display has two levels of back-light to facilitate viewing even in challenging lighting conditions.

The Fluke 568 features a distance-to-spot ratio of 50:1 enabling users to measure smaller objects or from further away; and the adjustable emissivity feature with built-in materials table or numerical setting allows users to measure a wide variety of surfaces more accurately and to easily compensate for shiny surfaces.

The Fluke 568 Thermometer can capture and store up to 99 points of data, which can be viewed on the thermometer or downloaded quickly to a computer via USB connection for later analysis and trending, using the included FlukeView® Forms software. With the USB connection and FlukeView Forms software, the Fluke 568 also can be used for real-time, hands-free monitoring of temperatures to troubleshoot processes and equipment.

Also, included is a K-type thermocouple bead probe enabling users to take contact measurements immediately. The thermometer is compatible with all standard mini-connector type-K thermocouples. MIN, MAX, AVG, and DIF temperature values are captured to help users save time and reduce calculation errors.
