Fluke IR Thermometer Calibration

ATS delivers NIST-traceable Fluke IR thermometer calibration to restore function and accuracy. The infrared thermometer has applications in several industries, such as electrical, HVAC, automotive, construction, manufacturing, and research. Professionals rely on infrared thermometers to take temperature measurements as most infrared waves on the electromagnetic spectrum are invisible to the human eye. As with all equipment, infrared thermometers can drift and need calibration.
When Do You Calibrate Thermometers?
Many manufacturers, including Fluke, recommend infrared thermometers be recalibrated at least once a year. Thermometers may need periodic calibrations multiple times a year if used frequently, give precise measurements, or operate in extreme environments with any of the following conditions:
We can also calibrate IR thermometers after field or storage accidents, such as a fall. Clients should send thermometers ATS’ qualified calibration lab for damage inspections and repair consultations after an incident.
Why ATS?
ATS offers professional calibrations from experts with decades of combined experience. Our first calibration lab opened in 1987, and we have since developed a reputation for high-quality service and thorough reporting. Today, our calibration experts run an A2LA-accredited lab with equipment for NIST-traceable primary and secondary standards.
Clients can conveniently ship their devices to the ATS calibration lab for an estimated 7-10 day turnaround. Once a device arrives in our calibration lab, it spends at least 24 hours acclimating to the stable environment. We maintain a laboratory temperature close to 68 ˚F and 30-55% relative humidity (RH) for optimal calibrating conditions.

ATS typically calibrates instruments with at least five points across the thermometer’s range to ensure accuracies at minimum, maximum, and medium detectable temperatures. At each calibration point, our experts compare a client’s device with blackbody calibrators capable of detecting temperatures as low as -30 ˚C and as high as 500 ˚C. If the readings are not within tolerances set by the client or Fluke, our experts adjust the instrument until it returns to specifications.

Certificates of Calibration
After working with any instrument, our experts record all observations and performance data with a certificate of calibration available on our secure web platform, iPortal. Each certificate of calibration includes the following:

Our experts accept a variety of Fluke products besides IR thermometers, including:
