FLIR DM286 Industrial Imaging Multimeter With IGM


    Safely locate potentially dangerous problems without direct contact using FLIR IGM. MSX gives you unrivalled clarity by embedding edge and outline detail onto thermal images.


    The FLIR DM286 comes with a built-in LED work light for better visibility in dark or poorly lit areas, two rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery packs for all-day operation, and a 2m drop test rating for durability.


    Use the FLIR METERLiNK app to quickly and efficiently capture and compare readings, analyse and share radiometric images and videos, and create reports.


FLIR DM286 Industrial Multimeter with Infrared Guided Measurement

The FLIR DM286 industrial imaging multimeter is the ultimate tool for electrical inspectors looking for a safe, high-precision and efficient way to detect electrical properties.

Powered by Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) and Infrared Guided Measurement (IGM) the DM286 allows you to safely detect hazards before physical contact is made. This powerful digital multimeter can capture and store up to 30,000 images and 100 log files with the ability to record both thermal and visual video clips in 160 × 120 (19,200 pixels) IR Resolution.

Stream live data in real time from the DM286 to your mobile device. The METERLiNK app allows you to quickly capture readings, images, and videos for analysis, trending, and sharing.

FLIR Infrared Guided Measurement Tools

Work safer and more efficiently with FLIR tools enhanced with Infrared Guided Measurement (IGM) technology. Rather than guessing the source of an electrical problem, use IGM to identify the exact wire or fuse that needs attention. You’ll find problems faster, get more done, and boost your credibility.

FLIR test and measurement tools with IGM include:

  • FLIR CM275 IGM Clamp Meter with Wireless Datalogging
  • FLIR DM286 Industrial Multimeter with IGM and MSX
  • FLIR MR176 IGM Moisture Meter with Replaceable Hygrometer
  • FLIR MR265 Moisture Meter and Thermal Imaging with an MSX IR Camera
  • FLIR MR277 Building Inspection System with Moisture Hygrometer and MSX IR Camera


Work Faster, Work Smarter with Infrared Guided Measurement

Utilising the FLIR Lepton sensor, IGM visually guides you to hidden temperature issues so you know precisely where to focus your troubleshooting. Eliminate guesswork and boost efficiency. Impress customers by uncovering problems and showcasing solutions.

Unrivalled Image Quality with MSX Image Enhancement

The DM286 features FLIR’s unique MSX, which adds key details from the onboard visible light camera to the entire infrared image in real time.

The result is an all-in-one, undiluted thermal picture with visible light features that lets you instantly recognise where the problematic heat pattern is. MSX is real time so you can see its results immediately on the camera’s display.

Get Inspection Information Quickly with the FLIR METERLiNK App

The FLIR METERLiNK app allows you to monitor a variety of environmental and electrical conditions simultaneously with the ability to connect with up to seven FLIR compatible meters at once.

With METERLiNK you will be able to keep tabs on key readings around your facility and easily share them with your team.

METERLiNK allows you to safely capture images and monitor hazardous areas remotely and in real time. You can also connect several FLIR clamp meters, digital multimeters, or any of the new METERLiNK app compatible meters.

Dark coloured roofs captured by FLIR thermal camera

The Sizzling Impact of Dark Roofs and Urban Heat Islands

Dark roofs are popular in Australian urban areas but they come with a catch. Dark coloured materials absorb and retain a substantial amount of heat, increasing local temperatures, and fostering urban heat islands. Understanding the impacts of dark roofs on urban heat is crucial for developing sustainable solutions to mitigate their effects and building resilient cities. The
