A multimeter has a ton of uses and everyone should have one. They allow you to diagnose almost any electrical problem. FLIR the leader in thermal imaging wanted to make the multimeter even better. They added what is called IGM (Infrared Guided Measurement). Not only did it make the multimeter better, but it opened up a whole new world of troubleshooting features. Now you can see the problem in an instant then directly probe that area saving time which saves money. The thermal imager can also see moisture, it usually shows up as a dark blue on most applications. This is great for troubleshooting the source of the moisture.
The FLIR DM284 Imaging Multimeter with IGM has a 160×120 resolution thermal camera and has a 18-function DMM including VFD mode, True RMS, LoZ, and NCV. The unit uses 4 AAA batteries, they also an available lithium ion battery that you can purchase separately. The unit is rigged and has to LED lights on the front to illuminate dark areas. The screen has the inverted lcd look with bright white on a black background this make its easy to see from any angle. FLIR covers this product with an unheard of 10 year warranty. Overall I give the FLIR DM284 high marks, check out the reviews of this unit over at Amazon – http://amzn.to/2kP7qbx
