FLIR CM78 1000A Clamp Meter with IR Thermometer


product image

The FLIR CM78 is a True RMS industrial clamp meter for the electrician who works on high-powered equipment and temperature systems and needs a safe, capable combination tool. An integrated IR thermometer provides fast non-contact measurements on panels, conduits, and motors. FLIR Tools Mobile connects the FLIR CM78 to your compatible smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth®, and METERLiNK® technology wirelessly integrates electrical readings on your infrared image with FLIR thermal cameras.

FLIR CM78 Industrial Clamp with IR Thermometer Features

AC/DC (1000A or 1000V)

Take accurate AC/DC measurements (up to 1000A or 1000V) safely and quickly on high-powered equipment and complex machinery.

Non-Contact Safety

Save time by attaching the meter to the target when the panel is de-energised, then measure the active equipment when the panel is closed.

Spot-Laser IR Thermometer

Quickly scan for hot spots on panels, conduits, and motors using the built-in non-contact IR thermometer.

Type K Thermocouple

Verify that associated current measurements and temperature readings are correctly aligned and in spec.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Connect to Android devices for remote diagnostics in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. Also, upload data without the need for special cords.

METERLiNK Compatibility

Embed electrical measurements into thermal images captured by METERLiNK-enabled FLIR IR cameras for easier documentation.

Bright Dual-LED Worklights

Make your work safer/easier in poorly lit locations – especially useful when the lights are out or obstacles block your inspection targets.

Rugged & Shock-Resistant

Double-molded case design and extra thick rubber on the corners absorbs shock to enhance job-site reliability and long-haul durability.
