Guide to Fluke Thermal Camera Models

Thermal image technology can offer a valuable insight behind working machinery, electrical circuits, components and buildings. Temperature can often be a sign of an issue in commercial, industrial and building applications. Preventative maintenance using thermal imagery is a method of troubleshooting, monitoring and assessing active systems for weaknesses or possible threats that may cause equipment failure. Read our guide below to discover the correct Fluke Thermal Camera that matches your intended purpose. 

The quick list below identifies the Fluke thermal cameras matched to application with more detail of each in each section.

1 - General Troubleshooting

Thermal cameras designed for general troubleshooting are often compact, fast and reliable. They commonly focus on simple point-and-shoot system for ease of use and require very little user training or knowledge. Resolution is sufficient for front-line diagnostic tests, such as identifying if circuits are on, or if there is a poor electronic connection resulting in higher resistance etc.  However higher resolutions are often required by professional technicians to run detailed successful preventative maintenance programmes.

2 - Commercial & Industrial Preventative Maintenance and Fault Finding

Thermal Image Cameras designed for Commercial, Industrial and Building applications typically offer higher resolution for better quality data capture. Focus systems are often automatic or manual, which gives the professional user the option to adjust camera settings to ensure accurate capture of the chosen target. Applications may include identification of weak spots and leaks in flat roofs, identification of poor or ineffective insulation, troubleshooting of underfloor heating, wear loading of industrial motors etc.  Straightforward reporting systems are also critical to compile data reports and utilise effective methods of sharing data. Commercial and industrial professionals rely on analysing data quickly and easily to run a successful maintenance programme.   The thermal cameras shown below offer these capabilities.
