Fluke 971 measures temperature, dew point or wet bulb

Fluke Corp. introduced a new rugged, pocket sized test tool designed for professionals in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), building maintenance and indoor air quality (IAQ) fields.

The Fluke 971 measures temperature, dew point or wet bulb from -20C to 60C, and measures relative humidity from 5 percent to 95 percent, 2.5 percent RH. Its 99-point data storage capacity means users can take multiple readings and store them for later analysis. This new temperature humidity meter features an LCD with backlight and a low battery indicator.

With its pocket-size convenience and durability, said the press release, the Fluke 971 gives HVAC technicians and building managers an accurate, simple tool to ensure that HVAC systems are operating within specification. Industrial hygienists will find it useful for identifying conditions that encourage biological growth, and verifying that measures to control humidity are working, added the company.

"Temperature and humidity are factors HVAC systems are designed to control. There's no easier way to verify system performance than the Fluke 971," said Rick Pirret, manager for Fluke's indoor air diagnostics. "Regulation of humidity and temperature can help keep employees comfortable and productive, and protect them from health issues that may arise when humidity is not carefully controlled."

The new temperature humidity meter comes with a protective holster and four AAA alkaline batteries. An optional carrying case is also available.
