A Portland Business Journal report says FLIR Systems Inc., Wilsonville, Ore., (FLIR) has filed suit against Fluke Corp., Everett, Wash., regarding a Youtube video Fluke published in March of a "drop test" involving several competing infrared scanners. Flir says two of its products are misrepresented in the video. In the video the Flir scanners appear to break when dropped from two meters, while the Fluke meter appears to not suffer any damage. According to the article, Flir is charging rival Fluke with manipulating its cameras to "make it appear they broke when dropped."
