June 15, 2012 -
Able to survive 9.8 ft drops to wood floors, IP54-rated Fluke® 62 Max and 62 Max+ offer trigger-actuated measurement and can be carried on tool belt. Both have multi-angle, backlit display and operate on one AA battery, and 62 Max+ adds dual rotating lasers that identify spot size. While 62 Max has distance-to-spot ratio of 10:1 and measures 30 to 500°C with accuracy to ±1.5% of reading, 62 Max+ has distance-to-spot ratio of 12:1 and measures 30 to 650°C with accuracy to ±1.0% of reading.

The Fluke 62 Max/62 Max+ delivers:
-- Rugged performance: Survives 9.8 foot/3 meter drops to wood floors.
-- Water and dust resistance: IP54 rated to withstand rain, splashing liquids, dust and dirt.
-- Small and easy to use: Small enough to carry comfortably on a tool belt all day, the digital thermometers measure with a trigger click and their multi-angle, backlit displays make them easy to read.
-- Dual lasers (62 Max+): Dual, rotating lasers to accurately identify spot size.
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 degrees C to 500 degrees C with an accuracy plus-minus 1.5% of the reading. The 62 Max+ has a distance-to-spot ratio of 12:1 and measures 30 degrees C to 650 degrees C with an accuracy plus-minus 1.0% of the reading.
Both IR thermometers operate on a single AA battery.
