Product overview

The 566 IR and contact thermometer features a simple, three-button, on-screen menu interface (in 6 languages) to make it easier than ever to measure temperature. You can quickly navigate advanced features to adjust emissivity, start data logging, or turn alarms on and off with just a few pushes of a button. And with its rugged, easy-to-use, ergonomic design, the Fluke 566 can stand up to tough industrial, electrical, and mechanical environments. These tools go beyond other IR thermometers (or pyrometers), helping you work more efficiently in more applications.

Other useful features:

  • Adjustable emissivity that allows you to confidently measure a wide variety of surfaces
  • Up to 20 points of data for downloading and recalling later
  • Two levels of backlight on the display
  • Included Type-K thermocouple bead probe
  • Features audible and visual alarms to instantly alert you to measurements outside of your set limits
  • Provides MAX, MIN, DIF and AVG functions to quickly identify problems

Resources

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great teaching tool I use the infrared thermometer with my 4-H Club and demonstrations. The ability to show the difference in temperature of light bulbs, comparing incandescent, florescent, CFL, and LED lights. We also use it in discussions about heat loss in homes and how much heat electronics put off. It's interesting to watch them see what they can find to measure temperature. Like a pot on the stove or something coming out of the microwave. By getting these tools in the hands of children and educating them on their uses creates lifetime users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very accurate readings. This is my most frequently used tool. The temperature readings are extremely accurate, even at a distance. I use this device to calibrate thermistors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our shop/mfg. use. This tool is for anyone who needs a pyrometer. Additional accessories are available for measuring temperatures in all sorts of applications. Example, perfect for everything but measuring water pipe temperatures, the IR bounced off round or curved objects. This meter does have a pipe clamp option that will measure temperature to 1 degree; but its expensive at another $300. Great for the needs we have in the shop and in house test room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be smarter 1. Min, Max, Avg not available when using thermocouple 2. Those statistics are not recorded in the memory 3. Memory is not logging type; must manually save each reading 4. The light button only toggles the brightness; does not allow to turn off (must save in setup menu to do that, but then it's not available outside of the menu)
