The 50 Series II comes in four different models. All have basic accuracy of [± 0.05% + 0.3°C] with a measurement range from –250°C to 1767°C. Readings can be displayed in °C, °F and Kelvin. The electronic offset function allows compensation of thermocouple errors to maximize overall accuracy. The meters can withstand harsh work environments with a splash and dust resistant case design and the ability to survive a one-meter drop. For capturing major variations, the meters feature Min/Max/Average with a time stamp. Depending on the model, these meters can measure up to seven different types of thermocouples (K, J, T, E, R, S and N).
In addition to the above features, the higher end 53-II (single input) and 54-II (dual input) add the capability of data logging. Both meters can record to internal memory up to 500 data points. Users can then easily review the data on-screen or, download to the optional FlukeView Forms software on a PC. The software provides in-depth analysis including records, charts and graphs to produce professional looking documents.
As part of its total temperature solution, the company is introducing seven new temperature accessories for the 50 Series II Digital Thermometers. The accessories include four new thermocouple probes and three new extension wire kits that are rugged, reliable and accurate. Also available is the ToolPak accessory kit. With hook-and-loop straps and a rare earth magnet, hanging the meter for hands-free operation is made easy.
