An IR Thermometer that takes heat, dust, water… And a 3 meter drop!

Fluke has just launched the Fluke 64 MAX IR thermometer with internal memory, unattended monitoring, improved accuracy, increased battery life, as well as the precision needed to do the job accurately. Designed and tested to survive a 3 meter drop, this lightweight, compact infrared thermometer works in the harshest of environments and even when unattended. Applications include industrial maintenance, electrical and HVAC industries.

Fast and accurate automatic pressure testing and documentation of critical regulatory and compliance calibrations

Pressure instrument calibration is a significant part of the maintenance workload in process plants that requires a high level of accuracy and repeatability. Fluke has just launched the new Fluke 729 Automatic Pressure Calibrator - simplifying the calibration process by automating pumping to the precise test pressure, improving calibration integrity by compensating for minor leaks, and automatically documenting the pressure calibration process to meet compliance and regulatory requirements. 


Instrotech – local designer and manufacturer of high quality process control instrumentation and industrial electronics – is offering three dual display controllers to industry under the Calog brand.

New super-fast, 500MHz bandwidth industrial ScopeMeter

The Comtest Group, Fluke’s authorised Test and Measurement distributor for South and southern Africa, has added two new models to their 190 Series II – range of handheld Scopemeters, the Fluke-190-502 and the Fluke-190-502S . With a bandwidth of 500MHz they are both super fast – achieving a 5GS/s sample-rate, providing greater accuracy and clarity of shape and amplitude of waveforms.

What is Electrochemistry?

Electrochemists use electrical signals (DC voltage and current) to control and study chemical processes, hence the term electrochemistry. Placing a controlled signal on a chemical solution enables the chemist to determine the nature and concentration of an analyte (solid or liquid) or how the electrodes are responding in the chemical process. 

Microsemi: PTP Enterprise Profile


Timing accuracy in many large enterprise IT networks have advanced to levels beyond what can be supported by standard NTP clients. PTP with hardware timestamping and faster message update rates is increasingly being used to meet these accuracy requirements. To ease PTP configuration and facilitate equipment interoperability, the IETF have established the PTP Enterprise Profile.



COMTEST Solutions is pleased to announce it will represent UK-based Pico Technology - a design, development and manufacturer of PC Oscilloscopes and data loggers.  Pico has a comprehensive portfolio of products, including the PicoScope PC Oscilloscope range with bandwidths up to 20 GHz, resolutions up to 16 bits and mixed-signal and flexible-resolution models; the TC-08 and PT-104 Temperature Data Loggers; and the multi-award-winning Automotive Oscilloscope Kit.
