The Fluke Visual IR Thermometer saves a blended infrared and visual image with every images capture instantly. The Fluke VT04 adds best-in-class field-of-view to see more instantly and to work in tight spaces.

Half the issue is detecting where a hot or cold marker started. After locating a hot or cold spot, the user can save the image with the temperature reading andpinpoint the exact location using the blending between full thermal to full visual.

The Fluke VT/04 Visual IR Thermometer Hi/Lo Temp Alarm signals when the center point temperature measurement breaches a user determined threshold. Simply set the desired temperature alarm point and scan the target area and watch for the alarm to trigger.

The Fluke VT-04 has two powerful automated monitoring features that take images at a set duration or when the temperature alarm is triggered. This allows for unattended monitoring, making it useful in comparing machinery over time and troubleshooting stubborn intermittent issues.
