The 279 FC is designed to allow technicians to quickly and safely check for hot spots in fuses, wires, insulators, connectors, splices, and switches with the imager and then troubleshoot and analyze issues with the DMM. The thermal multimeter features 15 electrical measurement functions including ac/dc voltage, resistance, continuity, and capacitance.

The optional iFlex clamp can wrap around conductors and wires in tight, hard-to-reach spaces and expands its measurement capabilities to include ac current up to 2500 A. It is also part of Fluke Connect, which allows technicians to record and share both thermal images and electrical measurements in real time via their smartphones or tablets and automatically upload them to the cloud. The thermal multimeter also has a rechargeable lithium ion (Li-Ion) battery that is designed to last up to a full work day (10+ hours) under normal conditions.
