FLIR DM285 Digital Multimeter

Visually guides users to the precise location of an electrical problem without direct contact

The FLIR® DM285 is a thermal imaging digital multimeter. Powered by the FLIR Lepton microcamera thermal core, this industrial inspection, troubleshooting, and diagnostic tool is suitable for a wide variety of electrical and electromechanical applications, as well as for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC/R) inspection.

digital multimeterThe DM285 features IGM (infrared guided measurement) technology, which visually guides users to the precise location of a problem, pinpointing issues faster and more efficiently. Wireless connectivity allows for direct connection to the FLIR InSite professional workflow management app to streamline the inspection process and simplify data collection, sharing, and reporting, while a robust package makes this digital multimeter suitable for use in any rugged environment.

The DM285 can be used for non-contact thermal imaging to quickly scan for overheating system components, and then used to test functions to troubleshoot and diagnose the fault. It is suitable for troubleshooting electrical applications, including overheating panels, fuses, and loose connections. The DM285 can be used for diagnosing issues in electromechanical equipment such as rotating and reciprocating pumps and compressors, electric motors and drives, and associated monitoring and automation systems. This digital multimeter is also a good choice for HVAC/R applications, as well as repair of printed circuit board components, voltage regulators, power supplies, and microprocessors.

digital multimeterThe 18-function, 160×120 thermal resolution DM285 measures temperatures up to 752°F, stores data for 10 sets of 40k scalar measurements and 100 images, and offers a recall function for data review in the field. It includes a built-in work light and flexible battery options, including the long-life FLIR TA04 Li-Poly rechargeable battery or standard AA batteries that ensure operability 24/7. The unit also includes high-quality silicone test leads, alligator clips, Type-K thermocouple, test lead storage/holder attachment, and a soft carrying case. The DM285 carries a 10-year warranty on both the product and the thermal detector.
