New 4180 Series Precision Infrared Calibrators from Fluke Australia

Hart Scientific, a division of Fluke Corporation and provider of calibration products and services, has announced the 4180 series of precision infrared calibrators.


The new 4180 and 4181 infrared calibrators use special design technology to ensure ease of use and provide the ultimate accuracy through the use of target sizes recommended by thermometer manufacturers.

The 4180 calibrator has a temperature range of –15 °C to 120 °C, with radiometric (non-contact infrared) display accuracy of ± 0.40 °C.

The 4181 calibrator measures from 35 °C to 500 °C, with a radiometric display accuracy of ±0.35 °C.

The 4180 series calibrators have features to address quality issues not often covered by similar calibrators, including emissivity and size of source effect.

Additional features include:

  • Target stability
  • Target uniformity
  • Six-inch target diameter
  • Traceable radiometric calibration

Sample calibration procedures for Fluke thermometers are built into the tools to ensure users are up and running with minimum training.

Dennis Juniper, precision measurement channel manager, Fluke Australia, said, “The Fluke 4180 precision infrared calibrators are incredibly accurate and easy to use. To have the ultimate confidence in temperature measurements, thermometers must be calibrated.

“The results of tests and measurements influence many big business decisions, meaning accuracy is essential when calibrating tools. To shut down a line for repairs and maintenance can be costly, but unplanned it can be catastrophic.”
