Fluke Thermal Imagers Now Display Simultaneous Electrical And Thermal Readings

A free and easy upgrade connects thermal imagers to the Fluke CNX Wireless Test Tools for both new and current users

EVERETT, Wash. -- Fluke Corporation expands the CNX™ Wireless Test Tools system to include the best-selling Fluke® Ti1XX Series Thermal Imagers, enabling users to troubleshoot even more problems than before.

For customers who currently own or will purchase a Ti1XX Series Thermal Imager and CNX modules, there is a free, user-installable firmware upgrade within SmartView® software that enables the thermal imager to capture and display electrical measurements wirelessly.

The Fluke CNX Wireless System is a set of test tools that wirelessly connects multiple measurement modules and sends simultaneous readings to a CNX main unit up to 20 meters away, allowing users to troubleshoot problems faster than with traditional tools. The rugged, customizable tool set allows users to choose various measurement modules, from voltage to current or temperature, based on their specific troubleshooting scenario.

CNX main units now include the Ti1XX Series imager, which allows live measurements of up to five wireless modules to be viewed on its screen and integrated into the infrared image, and the CNX 3000 Wireless Multimeter, which can display its readings along with readings from up to three other measurement modules. Up to ten live measurements can be viewed simultaneously on a computer equipped with the CNX PC Adapter.

The CNX modules, which include the v3000 AC Voltage, a3000 AC Current Clamp, i3000 iFlex™ AC Current Clamp, and t3000 K-Type Temperature units, can take live measurements that can be viewed on the screen of the CNX DMM, or log up to 65,000 sets of data that can be transferred to a PC and imported into Excel. All CNX units and modules can also be used as stand-alone tools.

The Fluke CNX system allows users to place modules in hazardous or awkward places, like electrical cabinets, rotating machines, or harsh environments, and then watch the readings from a safe distance. Measuring multiple points simultaneously is also an advantage when evaluating circuit load capacity and troubleshooting electronically controlled equipment.

Thermal images and the data from the measurements captured wirelessly from the CNX modules can be downloaded and imported into Fluke SmartView software, a professional suite of analysis and reporting tools for viewing, annotating and editing infrared images. Documenting the thermal images together with current measurements makes inspections more thorough and adds validity to the analysis and reports.
