A Closer Look at the Fluke 62 MAX Mini Infrared Thermometer


Monitoring the surface temperature is a very important procedure in most industrial processes. Temperature is one of the important safety variables in different fields such as manufacturing, electronics, construction, HVAC, and commercial operations.


Regular temperature reading of surfaces is a standard requirement that can be easily done with a laser thermometer for most maintenance functions that needs accurate temperature control and monitoring. In the Philippines, one of the more popular brands for laser thermometer is Fluke.



Some of the uses of a laser thermometer include monitoring an equipment’s or a machines’ condition, identifying “hot spots” in electronic equipment, identifying overheating equipment and circuit breakers, and other applications that mostly involve quality assurance or preventive maintenance.



Engineers can get precise and accurate reading of temperature using Infrared (IR) thermometer. Infrared thermometers can measure the temperature of an object based on the amount of infrared energy radiated by the target’s surface. These devices provide non-contact measurement that improves the safety of carrying out the function of monitor for maintenance and engineering professionals.



If you are looking for a fast, reliable and budget friendly IR Thermometer, Fluke is one of the popular brands that are preferred in the Philippines. One of their models, the Fluke 62 MAX Mini Infrared Thermometer is among the most used in the engineering and industrial maintenance community. Below are some of the features that make it a top choice among pros.



Quick and Easy to Use

Just point the laser and shoot to get a high-precision spot reading (< 500 ms (95 % of reading). It offers single laser targeting for accurate and repeatable measurements at a 10:1 distance to spot ratio and a large, backlit display to make data easier to read even in dark areas



Fluke laser thermometer measures temperature from as low as -30 °C up to 500 °C. (-22°F to 932°F), accurate to +1.5°C or +1.5% of reading (whichever is greater). It also features an IP54 rating against dust and moisture.



Alarm Feature

Get notified when a temperature reading is outside the expected range of high and low alarms. This is an especially important feature for maintenance professionals in the field of industrial chemistry and energy.



Temperature Statistics

This Fluke laser thermometer ca also display the difference between two measurements and the average, min, max of the scanned temperatures. This is important data that’s helpful in troubleshooting potential problems in any given mechanized system.



Durability & Portability

It is small and light-weight (255g.) but is designed and tested to withstand up to a 3 meter (9.8 ft.) drop. It has also been tested to work even on hazardous environment like those in extreme temperatures. This is a handy tool for professionals in the oil and gas industry.




Fluke 62 MAX laser thermometer is one of the most affordable industrial grade IR Thermometer in the market. In the Philippines, you can purchase this and other Fluke products from authorized distributors.


Aside from using Fluke 62 MAX Mini Infrared Thermometer for professionally, others can also use its functions in creative ways like temperature check automation in commercial establishment. It’s a convenient product that’s easy to use, sturdy, reliable, and can be used flexibly.
