Product Description

The Fluke 561 dual infrared and thermocouple thermometer takes noncontact or contact temperature measurements in HVAC/R systems and manufacturing, electrical, and industrial environments. This thermometer measures temperature from -40 to +550 degrees C (-40 to +1022 degrees F) with an accuracy of + or -1 degree C (+ or -2 degrees F) for the infrared sensor and an accuracy of + or -2 degrees C (+ or -4 degrees F) or 1% of the reading, whichever is greater, for Type K thermocouple input. It has a 12:1 infrared distance-to-spot ratio with laser sighting for pinpointing the measurement area. This thermometer comes with a Type K thermocouple pipe probe wrapped in flexible hook-and-loop fastener with a 20" cable for taking contact measurements from 0 to 100 degrees C (32 to 212 degrees F), and it can accommodate any standard Type K thermocouple probe (sold separately). Its display shows the current temperature, the minimum, the maximum, the difference between the two temperatures, and the average temperatures when measured with the infrared sensor, and it has three emissivity settings that compensate for heat emitted from the surface of shiny objects to increase the accuracy of the measurement. Backlighting helps eliminate light reflections and improves contrast in low-light conditions. The European Conformity (CE) marking indicates compliance with applicable European Union (EU) directives. It comes with a Type K thermocouple pipe probe, a hard carrying case, two AA batteries and instructions. This thermometer is suitable for measuring the temperature of equipment, systems, and processes in HVAC/R (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning/refrigeration), industrial, electrical, and manufacturing environments.

Digital infrared thermometers measure the temperature of surfaces from a distance. They may measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or both. Infrared (IR) thermometers work by focusing the infrared radiation emitted by a surface onto a detector called a thermopile. The thermopile turns the heat into electricity, which is measured and converted to a temperature reading. The reading is then displayed on an LCD display. IR thermometers are used to measure temperature when an object is fragile, as in ear thermometers, or dangerous to be near, as in the case of industrial equipment.

Fluke Corporation manufactures electrical testing tools and software for industrial and commercial applications. The company, founded in 1948, is headquartered in Everett, WA.

The Fluke model 561 infrared thermometer is an excellent buy. It is the only IR thermometer that I found under $250 that had an adjustable emissivity. Since not all surfaces radiate infrared equally, this can be a very important feature. The model 561 also can accept K type thermocouples for use in making contact temperature measurements. As an added feature, this model comes with a special K type theromocouple mounted in a velcro strap for wrapping around pipes for direct contact measurements. The plastic case is nice, too. I researched every model of IR thermometer under $500 for a month, and this was the best that I found. The only drawback is that the switch that changes between Celcius and Farenheit is inconveniently located inside the battery compartment.

I needed an I/R thermometer to check and monitor my engines in my radio controlled miniature aircraft.
I used lesser brands but they seemed to read lower than I thought, and I researched for at least three months and finally decided on a Fluke 561.
I will use no other unit, this works flawlessly good solid readings no fluctuation like the others, they would change at least twenty degrees as you were holding on one spot.
This unit gives steady accurate readings on my five cylinder radial engine so I can modify my air baffles in order to keep all cylinders close to the same temperature.
I also have found countless other uses for it, I could write a book.

This is a better unit than my previous unit, which was less than 1/2 the price. You get what you pay for: this is remarkably accurate with a narrow focus zone. You can adjust it for differences in emissivity very easily, which is the only way to get a proper reading for things like glass and reflective metals, etc.

Easy to read display, We will use it in the field, As all fluke's instruments, they are very reliable and accurate, my only observation is the K thermocouple reading does not have decimals, it give you full numbers, this feature would give a big plus for the instrument.

This thing was pricey but definitely worth the money. The product works as advertised by Fluke. No problems with it at all. I just point it, pull the trigger and then stick it back in the case and I know the gun will turn itself off.

Verified Purchase
This set is great for see what the temperature is coming out of vents. It is also nice to have a probe to use on the lines to calculate superheat and supercool, but the probe is designed for larger diameter pipes, so using on 1/2 or 1/4 pipe is challenge. It would have been really nice to have a clamp on probe.

Review of the Fluke 561

Overall, very satisfied with this purchase from Amazon.

Pros:

Readings are repeatable, meaning that if you continue pointing the laser at the same spot without moving it and take several measurements in quick succession, the values you read will be very close to each other. Not a big deal, you say? Wrong. Some of the other, inexpensive infrared thermometers out there will give you wild swings on the order of 4% or more when doing just this. You measure spot X at 89 Fahrenheit, remeasure the exact same spot one second later, without moving the instrument, and get 94. After this has happened to you a few times, you lose all confidence in the readings. With this Fluke the variations are reasonable, on the order of tenths of a degree at most and often exactly the same. Nice.
You can set the emissivity of the instrument to high (0.95), medium (0.60), and low (0.30). So that, depending on the type of surface you are measuring, you can adjust the emissivity to get an accurate reading. Tables showing the emissivity of different materials are available at a number of different websites.

Because you have both infrared and pipe-cuff contact thermometer technology you can use one to check the other when measuring pipe temps.

The claimed degree of accuracy is also high in comparison with other, less accurate infrareds out there.

Cons:

The pipe cuff appears to take 2-5 minutes to stabilize on one temperature reading. It appears to rely on a small metal "button" on the inside of the velcroed exterior of the cuff, of about 1/16 of an inch diameter, to come in contact with the surface of the pipe.

I did extensive research on IR thermometers, how they work, they various fetures, reliability, accuracy, ease of use, and practical application around the home. I selected the Fluke because they have a steller professional reputation for quuality products. I wanted a unit that I could gain home-use value and this unit has provided all I expected. With the Fluke 561 I can now properly adjust my refridgerator-freezer so it produces ice-maker output correctly (need ZERO degrees F. in freezer) and my refrigerator isn't freezing the food (34-38 degrees F.). I can check my stove and oven temperatures, most food surface temperatures (not internal) and best of all I can verify the my Air Conditioning/Heat Pump units are producing the correct temperature ouputs to keep my family comfortable. The Fluke 561 is easy to use and Fluke has a lot of useful information about IR THermometers and how they can be used.
