CHICAGO – NOVEMBER 18, 2009

Electronics distributor provides on-site product demos and technical support for new thermal diagnostic tool to identify plant energy savings

Committed to bringing engineers the newest technologies first, leading multi-channel electronics distributor Newark element14, part of the global Premier Farnell Group, announces that it is now offering Fluke's next-generation thermal imager at www.newark.ca/fluke. Specifications and a product demo of the Ti32 are available at this site, and an on-site demonstration can be scheduled by calling 1.800.463.9275. Uniquely, Newark element14's selection includes Ti32's pre-calibrated to ANSI-Z540 with before and after data, from its own metrology labs which meet the industry's top ISO/IEC 17025:2005 quality standard.

The Fluke Ti32 is the first imager on the market to incorporate a powerful 320x240 sensor to provide crisp, detailed images for under US$9,000. Using Fluke's patented IR-Fusion® technology in both the camera and software, users can marry high-precision thermal images with visual images in full screen, picture-in-picture or blended views for enhanced problem detection and analysis. Thermal imaging is a powerful tool in conducting proactive maintenance and helping reduce energy costs.

"Today just about every manufacturing plant is looking for ways to save on energy… and that includes us," said Daren Couture, Senior VP Global Operations, Fluke Corporation. "Tektronix, a sister company, used Fluke thermal tools during an intensive 3-day energy audit which helped to uncover more than $500K in annual savings."

"The Fluke Ti32 is designed to make thermal imaging affordable for a wide range of industrial inspection and process control applications," comments Diane Sweeney, Vice President, Newark element14. "We are one of the few distributors that have the experience, training and multi-channel sales model that can support Fluke's entire thermography line."
