Fluke 62 MAX Infrared Thermometers

Fluke Intros 62 MAX and 62 MAX + Infrared Thermometers

There’s not a ton of info on these yet, but Fluke is releasing two new infrared thermometers, the new Fluke 62 MAX and 62 MAX + (PLUS) models. Both new IR thermometers are designed to improve upon the already-decent Fluke 62. The new models are small and compact and Fluke thinks they will provide everything you’d need – as you might expect from the well-regarded folks at Fluke. Small in size, extremely accurate and very easy to use, the new models are IP54 rated for dust and water resistance.Fluke also designed the new 62MAX and 62 MAX PLUS IR thermometers to be precise – and yet still rugged enough to take a 3-meter drop. In fact, Fluke is touting that the 62 MAX and 62 MAX + IR thermometers are so tough, they are the only IR thermometers around you can handle without care.

Fluke 62 MAX Infrared Thermometers Features

One of the most obvious upgrades from the Fluke 62 is the shortened length of the gun. The Fluke 62 MAX infrared thermometers and the 62 MAX + (PLUS) thermometers are even more compact. They’ve also changed the front LED display, adding three new buttons that allow you to navigate settings and configuration for the IR thermometer. Ergonomics are also slightly improved, with a more comfortable handle shape that bows out in the middle slightly to conform to the hand’s natural shape while gripping.

We’ll keep our eyes on these new products. Fluke has yet to announce pricing for the new 62 MAX IR thermometers. They did, however, release one of the worst promo videos we’ve ever seen. You have to check it out… but consider yourself warned.
