The Fluke 570 non-contact thermometers are ideal professional diagnostic tools for maintenance professionals requiring the most accurate temperature readings at all distances. The Fluke 570 series infrared (IR) measures surface temperatures, helping to quickly locate lubrication problems, overloads, short-circuits or misaligned and overheated equipment, reducing work and follow-up time, and improving performance.

From close-up electrical connections, to distant room balancing checks, the Fluke 570 series can take IR temperature measurements with ease. Predictive maintenance professionals requiring analysis and documentation use the 574 or 576 models, with 100-point data logging and digital photographs (576-only) with the included software for graphing and analysis for follow-up reporting and documentation.

Unique to the 576 Model
  • Windows-based (Windows 2000/XP) software for data storage and analysis
  • Software to log, graph, and analyze temperature data via USB connection (includes photo viewing feature)
