FLIR DM285 Imaging Multimeter

The FLIR DM285 Thermal Imaging Multimeter is a handy combination of a thermal imager and an advanced electrical measurement instrument with additional wireless and datalogging features. It can measure AC/DC voltage (1000V), AC/DC current (10A), resistance (50MΩ), capacitance (10mF) and frequency (100kHz) with further options for continuity and diode testing. It is also compatible with a type K thermocouple to measure temperature from -40˚C to 400˚C whilst a µA range can test flame sensors. The multimeter also boasts True RMS, LoZ voltage measurement and a VFD voltage measurement function.

The 160 x 120 pixel thermal sensor provides sharp thermal images by measuring temperature between -10˚C to 150˚C with ±3˚C accuracy. Thermal sensitivity of ≤150mK means that small temperature differences (0.15˚C) can be depicted on screen and the 50˚ x 38˚ field of view allows sharp focus at very short distances. Fixed focus and automatic ranging ensures that the FLIR DM285 provides the user with clear, useful thermal image.

The vibrant 2.8” colour screen shows thermal images in one of three palettes (iron, rainbow, greyscale) and provides the user with a digital temperature read out as well as a range indication. It has a wide angle design that can be viewed very easily and there is also min/max/average recording and a useful data hold function. Ranging is usually automatic but the user can take manual control if needed. The function is selected by the clearly-labelled dial and it is easy to navigate the intuitive onboard menu.

The DM285 Comes Supplied With:

  • FLIR DM285 Multimeter with Infrared
  • TA80 premium test leads
  • Type K temperature probe (400 °F, 204 °C)
  • 3 × AA Energizer batteries
  • User manual/CD

FLIR DM285 Laser Point


The Flex Kit contains the FLIR TA74 Universal Flexible Current Probe Accessory which measures AC current from 0 to 3000A with three separate ranges - 30A, 300A, and 3000A - that have resolutions of 0.01A, 0.1A and 1A respectively. It has a 45cm flexible coil which can be threaded and wrapped around cables in awkward spaces. It is attached to the FLIR DM285 via the 1.9m connector cable.

The final main part of the FLIR DM285 Flex Kit is the tough FLIR TA10-F Case that can shield all the components of the kit. It has separate components for the multimeter, flexible current camp and other accessories. Test leads and a thermocouple are provided as standard and the FLIR DM285 is covered by a ten-year warranty.
