The 279FC is a full-featured digital multimeter with integrated
thermal imaging and is designed to increase your productivity and
confidence. The thermal multimeter helps you find, repair, validate,
and report many electrical issues quickly so that you are confident
problems are solved.
Locate the problem immediately
Thermal imaging multimeters are a first-line troubleshooting tool
for electrical equipment that can check hot spots on high-voltage
equipment and transformers, detect heating of fuses, wires, insulators,
connectors, splices and switches. Scanning with the 279 FC’s
thermal imager reveals many electrical issues rapidly and from a
safe distance. By combining two tools into one, the thermal multimeter
lightens the load and increases productivity.
Compatible with iFlex® (a flexible current clamp) to expand your
measurement capabilities and get into tight, hard to reach spaces
for current measurement (up to 2500 A AC). The large full-color LCD
screen makes for easier and clearer viewing of images and readings.
The 10 hour+ rechargeable battery keeps you going all day
long under normal conditions.
Communicate your results
With built-in Fluke Connect®, transmit results wirelessly to a
smartphone and save time on reporting to validate work is
complete. Troubleshoot better by instantly trending and monitoring
measurements live on your smartphone screen. Create and email
reports right from the field.
