RS Components Introduces Interactive Product Finder from Fluke to Support Launch of Improved Range

New hand tools set to transform thermal imaging market through enhanced focus and ergonomics

CORBY, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 11, 2012) - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, has introduced an interactive product finder from Fluke to support the launch of its improved thermal imaging range.

New to the market, the range raises the standard for hand-held thermal imaging products thanks to a broad range of powerful capabilities which solve troubleshooting and diagnostic investigations.

To cope with the expected demand via RS, Fluke has developed an interactive product finder to guide customers through the selection process and identify the right product for their needs. The product finder is easy to use giving step-by-step instruction via the link at

The range is more popular than ever thanks to a number of new features introduced by Fluke. These include:

  • IR-OptiFlex™ focus system which makes it fast and easy to take sharply focused accurate images
  • IR-PhotoNotes™ annotation system which captures up to three digital photos per thermal image file, enabling the exact recording of equipment models, nameplates and other useful information
  • Focus-free video
  • IR-Fusion® technology, Fluke's patented technology which blends digital and infrared images into a single image to precisely document problem areas
  • SmartView® professional IR analysis and reporting software

Fluke is a leader in the field of thermal imaging, having developed a range of preventative maintenance tools that allow problems to be diagnosed while equipment is still being used. This means remedial action can be taken in a planned manner so avoiding very costly production down-time. Products can also be used to identify where energy is being wasted, such as through poor building insulation.

RS Product Marketing Manager Allen Boney commented: "Our customers are excited about the new range, so to make searching for the right products as easy as possible Fluke created the interactive finder. We are known for having an excellent range of products and the additions to the Fluke range are no exception. Customers can search through the range with confidence and make an informed decision on the solution they need thanks to the online tool."
