Another reason RestCon is Comfortable with the Fluke line of IR cameras!

Not just tested, Torture Tested™

Before a Fluke goes into your hands, we drop it from ours.  Only Fluke thermal imagers are built to withstand a 6.5’ drop.  Fluke conducts 8 tests before a thermal imager earns the name Fluke.

  1. Drop packaged product on each face, corner, and edge (8 corners, 6 sides, 12 edges) from approximately one meter onto a steel base.
  2. Drop the unpackaged unit from 2 meters; 6 drops on each face of the unpackaged unit.
  3. Subject the unit to extensive vibration for 30 minutes, (10Hz-500 Hz, at 0.03 g2/Hz – equivalent to ~4.8 g rms) on three perpendicular axes.
  4. Bombard the unit with electromagnetic fields and radio frequency emissions per EN61326-1:2006 to see if the readings change.
  5. Spray the unit with water at 10 liters/minute with a pressure of 100 kN/m2 and also test sealed joints from dust ingress.
  6. Run the product at temperatures down to -10°C and up to 50°C and verify that the product operates within specifications.
  7. Run the product and add humidity, up to 95% at up to 40°C, and run the test again.
  8. Simulate sending the unit 12,000 meters (7 miles) in altitude and verify that the product still functions properly.

How’s your comfort level in thermography?
