DMM identifies thermal overloads from a distance

12 August 2019

RS Components has introduced the first digital multimeter (DMM) in its RS PRO product range to feature a built-in thermal imager.

The RS-9889 thermal imaging multimeter allows engineers to identify thermal overload issues in electrical equipment from a safe distance, without the need for any physical contact.

The all-in-one handheld device is suitable for a wide variety of applications, ranging from smart manufacturing in the industrial automation sector, to general electrical tasks such as testing sockets and lighting during business safety audits and home renovations.

It combines features of a digital multimeter — measuring circuit parameters such as voltages, currents and resistances — with an infrared thermal imaging camera to allow hot and cool points in electrical components to be identified on a viewable thermogram.

The thermal imager offers max, min and centre crosshair targeting to help the user identify and measure required temperature ranges easily. A Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection allows thermal images to be shared quickly to other devices.
