PRESS RELEASE : Fluke 561 HVACPro is Multipurpose Thermometer Specifically Designed for HVAC Professionals

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, today announced the new Fluke 561 HVACPro, a multipurpose thermometer combining both infrared and contact temperature measurement functions in a single tool for HVAC professionals.

The Fluke 561 Thermometer gives users the option of deciding which temperature measurement method – contact or noncontact (infrared) – is most efficient and best suited for the application. HVAC professionals can use the Fluke 561 in infrared mode to instantly scan hot, moving, electrically-energized and hard to reach objects safely and conveniently without shutting down equipment. Contact and ambient temperature measurements can be taken by connecting the included fabric hook-and-loop fastener pipe probe or any industry-standard K-type mini-connector thermocouple.

Lightweight and portable, with a temperature range optimized for HVAC/R applications (-40 to 1022 °F/ -40 to 550 °C), the Fluke 561 has single-point laser sighting in the infrared mode that guides users to the approximate center of the target area for more accurate measurements. It features MIN, MAX and DIF functions designed for quick and efficient diagnosis, an adjustable emissivity selector with three settings, and includes an HVAC/R measurement section designed to maximize productivity in the users guide.

The Fluke 561 HVACPro Thermometer is available immediately for a US list price of $149. For more information on the Fluke 561 HVACPro, visit, or contact Fluke Corporation, PO Box 9090, Everett, WA USA 98206, call (888) 308-5277, fax (425) 446-5116, or e-mail
