Fluke 279 FC Thermal Multimeter takes top honor in the Control Engineering Awards (USA) for innovation that improves workforce efficiency. Fluke Predictive Maintenance also recognized in the 2017 Engineers' Choice Awards

The Fluke 279 FC Thermal Multimeter won the Hardware — handheld test, measurement, calibration category in the Control Engineering 2017 Engineers' Choice Awards in the United States of America, recognizing it for improving workforce productivity. Fluke® Predictive Maintenance, also part of the Fluke Connect® system, received an honorable mention in the same category.

This is the third honor for both products and the 25th for the underlying Fluke Connect system. Fluke Connect is the company's full-feature SaaS reliability platform that permits Fluke tool users to receive, store, visualize, and report electronic measurement data from more than 40 Fluke Connect wireless test tools.

The Control Engineering Engineers' Choice Awards highlight some of the best new control, instrumentation, and automation products as chosen by Control Engineering's print and online subscribers.

Fluke 279 FC Thermal Multimeter

The 279 FC Thermal Multimeter is the first test tool to integrate a full-featured true RMS digital multimeter with a thermal camera in one device to speed troubleshooting. The 279 FC allows technicians to quickly and safely check for hot spots in fuses, wires, insulators, connectors, splices, and switches with the imager and then troubleshoot and analyze issues with the DMM. By combining two powerful test tools into one, electricians and technicians can carry fewer tools and have a higher level of confidence they have the tools handy to solve problems.

In addition to measuring both electrical and thermal properties, the 279 FC can transmit test results via Fluke Connect. Both numeric data from electrical measurements and graphic files from related thermal measurements can be stored to the cloud, shared with colleagues and built into reports.
