Fluke 62 Mini Review

Fluke 62 Mini

This IR gun has a 1:10 measurement cone, meaning that the area sensed is one foot in diameter when it is ten feet from the gun. Operation is straightforward: pull the trigger, position the laser pointer on the area to be measured, and read the display which backlights for operation in darkness. Both the instantaneous temperature and the maximum temp during this trigger pull are displayed. No data is stored; each trigger pull takes a new reading.

Fluke is one of the premier manufacturers of electrical test equipment. This is their basic model. It is solidly made, with a rubberized housing that would make it resistant to damage from reasonable drops. We give it a Bronze medal for meeting expectations and ease of use. It appears that this model may be out of production, but the link to Amazon below redirects you to a replacement model which we have not tested.

1) Please try the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different than your membership login.
