Ways to Use Your Fluke Mini IR Thermometer

Updated on April 1, 2015

My Fluke 62 Mini IR Thermometer

This is my Fluke 62 IR Thermometer. I've had it for about a year now.

When I first got it I wondered what else can I do with this thing?

Well to my surprise, I've found many ways to use it since then.

I've used it to test temperatures of food, it is non contact so no food ever touches it.

You just point it at whatever you want to test and pull the trigger.

A red laser points at whatever you are measuring and the temp comes up instantly on the mini screen.

I've used it to find cold spots where the heat in my house was leaving.

I used it to see how hot my engine was, or to see how cold my air conditioning is in the car and at home.

I also used it to see how hot my radiators were getting in the house.

With a bit of imagination, this could be used for lots of things.

This tool has a laser that is very powerful and should not be left around for children to pick up and use.

Never point this tool at someones eyes as it could cause permanent damage.

Fluke 62 Mini IR Thermometer Personal Review

To me the Fluke 62 Mini IR Thermometer was a good investment. I needed it for a job and after the job was done, I found myself using it more and more for things I never thought of before.

As a tool, it is well made and has never not worked for me.

The 9 volt battery has been in it for over a year and is still going strong, and I use this at least once or twice a day, so thats saying alot.

This is the digital screen of the Fluke Thermometer. As you can see it instantly displays the temperature and at the bottom it keeps the highest temp reached in the session before the screen shuts off, about 10 seconds.

And you can see its set on Fahrenheit as opposed to Celsius which you can change it to inside the handle.

      I use it sometime to check how cold the air is coming out of the a/c vent.
