About FLIR


FLIR CM78 Industrial 1000 Amp Clamp with IR Thermometer

Combines a True RMS Digital Multimeter, Non-Contact Clamp Meter, and Spot IR Thermometer

The FLIR CM78 is a multifunctional, 1000 Amp Clamp Meter for the electrician who works on high-powered equipment and temperature systems. 


AC/DC (1000A or 1000V)
Take accurate AC/DC measurements (up to 1000A or 1000V) safely and quickly on high-powered equipment and complex machinery.

Non-Contact Safety
Save time by attaching the meter to the target when the panel is de-energized, then measure the active equipment when the panel is closed.

Spot-Laser IR Thermometer
Quickly scan for hot spots on panels, conduits, and motors using the built-in non-contact IR thermometer.

Type K Thermocouple
Verify that associated current measurements and temperature readings are correctly aligned and in spec.

Bluetooth Connectivity
Connect to Android devices for remote diagnostics in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. Also, upload data without the need for special cords.

METERLiNK Compatibility
Embed electrical measurements into thermal images captured by METERLiNK-enabled FLIR IR cameras for easier documentation.

Bright Dual-LED Worklights
Make your work safer/easier in poorly lit locations – especially useful when the lights are out or obstacles block your inspection targets.

Rugged & Shock-Resistant
Double-molded case design and extra thick rubber on the corners absorbs shock to enhance job-site reliability and long-haul durability.
