Compact yet versatile DMM identifies thermal overloads from a safe distance

12-08-2019 | RS Components | Test & Measurement

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 enables engineers to identify thermal overload problems in electrical equipment from a safe distance, with no need for any physical contact.


The thermal imaging DMM is an all-in-one handheld device created, like other products in the RS PRO range, to blend durability and reliability with great value for money. It is ideal for an extensive assortment of applications, from smart manufacturing in the industrial automation sector, to general electrical tasks including testing sockets and lighting during business safety audits and home renovations.


The device blends features of a digital multimeter — measuring circuit parameters including voltages, currents and resistances — with an infrared thermal imaging camera to enable hot and cool points in electrical components to be identified on a viewable thermogram.


The versatile device also functions as a diode, resistance and continuity tester, equipped with a buzzer, and can measure temperatures up to 1000C using a K-type thermocouple probe. AC and AC+DC voltage and current are true RMS.


This lightweight, portable device enables users to work on the go, measuring just 80mm x 58mm x 195mm and weighing 540g.
