MET/TEMP II Software Temperature Calibration automates calibration of a wide range of temperature sensors for consistent, reliable results

Fluke LogoAugust 5, 2015 – Fluke Calibration introduces an upgrade of its MET/TEMP II Temperature Calibration Software, a comprehensive calibration solution for testing batches of sensors, calculating characterisation of coefficients, and generating calibration reports. The new version 5.0 adds compatibility with the Microsoft Windows 7 and 8 operating systems and support for Fluke Calibration’s most recent temperature calibration sources: the 9190A Ultra-Cool Field Metrology Well and 9118A Thermocouple Calibration Furnace.

MET/TEMP II automates batch calibrations of platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs), liquid-in-glass (LIGs) and bimetallic thermometers, thermistors, and a wide range of thermocouple sensors to standardise testing for consistent results no matter who performs the calibration. Virtually any sensor with a resistance or voltage output can be tested, up to 100 sensors at a time.

Manual calibration of temperature sensors can be expensive, time-consuming, and error prone. With MET/TEMP II, calibration technicians simply place test sensors in a heat source, connect them to a temperature readout, enter the setup information, and start the test. Hours of testing are performed while the technician is free to do other work. After the test is complete, the technician prints and signs the report and ships the sensors and report to the customer, helping to improve productivity and saving hours.

The intuitive interface guides the user through configuring and running calibration tests and reporting, making it easy to learn and use.

New Fluke infrared camera lenses bring the temperature variances of even near-microscopic or far-distant objects into sharp focus

Fluke LogoJuly 8, 2015 – Infrared inspections often involve analysing temperature variations on something extremely small or too far away to see the needed detail with standard lenses. Two new lenses for Fluke infrared cameras bring those worlds into sharper focus. The 25 micron macro lens can identify defects that might otherwise be too small to see on targets like PCB boards. The new 4x telephoto lens gets users a four times magnified view of a target at a distance, so targets like a high electrical line or a tall flare stack can be easily inspected.

The two new lenses expand the Fluke portfolio of lenses for select infrared cameras of 320 x 240 resolution and under. The Fluke portfolio of lenses now includes standard, wide angle, macro, and 2x and 4x telephoto lenses—all precisely engineered germanium optics. All these lenses are easily exchanged between compatible cameras without the need to send the lens and camera back to the factory for calibration, eliminating the cost and downtime caused by shipping and additional calibration.

The 4x telephoto lens, which is compatible with Fluke® TiX560, TiX520, Ti400, Ti300, and Ti200 infrared cameras, helps identify problems in power utilities as small as a failed splice on a high electrical line while keeping technicians safely on the ground. In applications like petrochemical and metals refinement where explosive atmospheres, extreme heat, or dangerous electrical levels make keeping a safe distance critical, the telephoto lens makes distant details more viewable while keeping workers at a safer distance.

The 25 micron macro lens, which is compatible with Fluke TiX560 and TiX520 infrared cameras, lets technicians distinguish thermal variations across distances smaller than a human hair, making it ideal for applications in electronics/PCB board R&D, or anything else requiring near-microscopic level infrared resolution. The LaserSharp® Auto Focus button is used to set the focus at the optimal distance for the lens, eliminating the need to move the focus wheel by tiny amounts to get accurate, in-focus images, speeding infrared measurements.

“These new lenses represent Fluke’s continued drive to listen to and be involved with the application needs of customers,” said Henk Van Velze, managing director of Fluke Australia. “As technology changes and customers discover new applications for infrared technology, Fluke will continue to innovate in the area of infrared optics, as we have with our camera systems.”

Fluke PRV240 Proving Unit reduces the risk of shock and arc flash

Fluke LogoJune 29, 2015 – Three-point “test before touch” (TBT) verification of electrical test tools — verify the test tool is working properly before conducting a test, take the test, verify after the test — is a new, important safety development now required by work practices. The new Fluke® PRV240 Proving Unit provides a safe and convenient method for TBT verification of electrical test tools without placing the electrician or technician in potentially hazardous electrical environments, which would generally involve using known live voltage sources.

In contrast to using a known live source, using the PRV240 does not require personal protective equipment (PPE) for tester verification. Use of the PRV240 reduces the risk of shock and arc flash compared to verification of test instruments on high-energy sources in potentially hazardous electrical environments because the PRV240 provides a known voltage in a controlled, low-current state in accordance with safe work practices.

The pocket-sized PRV240 sources 240 V of both ac and dc steady-state voltage for testing of both high- and low-impedance multimeters, clamp meters, and two-pole testers, eliminating both the need for multiple verification tools and the use of a known high-energy voltage source for test instrument verification. To avoid accidental contact, the voltage is supplied through recessed contacts that are activated only when test probes are inserted into the modules insulated access points. A single LED indicates the sourcing of the voltage to verify the test tool, simplifying test tool verification without the need for PPE.

The proving unit can perform up to 5,000 tests per set of four AA batteries and comes with a TPAK magnetic hanging strap for easy accessibility.

WithEquipmentLog™ technicians and managers can get all of their measurement data in one place to get the complete asset story. EquipmentLog history lets technicians assign measurements to specific equipment, creating a cloud-based history of all test measurement data (e.g. vibration, electrical, infrared images) for easy access during both troubleshooting and reliability maintenance.

Technicians can also share measurements with other team members in real time with ShareLive™ video calls to get approvals for repairs or get questions answered without leaving the field.

The handheld Fluke 805 FC measures overall vibration from 10 to 1,000 Hz and provides a four-level severity assessment for overall vibration and bearing condition. It detects peaks in the vibration signal readings of roller bearings from 4,000 Hz to 20,000 Hz, and uses a proprietary algorithm to interpret severity to determine if the bearing is going bad. It features an infrared sensor that automatically measures surface temperature and displays it along with the vibration reading for a broader understanding of machine health.

The 805 FC has a unique sensor tip design that minimises measurement variations caused by device angle or contact pressure. This reduces operator error and improves the accuracy and repeatability of quick vibration screening. The meter also provides a severity scale for both overall vibration and bearing condition readings, delivering more information than typical vibration pens.

New Fluke 1000FLT Fluorescent Light Tester performs all essential lamp tests in less than 30 seconds

Fluke LogoSeptember 10, 2014 – Maintaining fluorescent lamps tends to be a trial-and-error process. Bulbs not lit? Climb the ladder and replace them. Still not lit? Go back up the ladder and replace the ballast. Still not lit? Climb the ladder one more time. It’s tedious, time-consuming and inefficient, plus any time workers climb ladders there are potential safety issues.

The Fluke 1000FLT Fluorescent Light Tester eliminates the guesswork of maintaining fluorescent lamps by performing all the essential tests on lamps in less than 30 seconds: lamp tester, ballast tester, non-contact voltage detector, pin continuity tester, and ballast discriminator. The 1000FLT eliminates trial, error and rework, and reduces the time maintenance teams spend fixing lights.

The point-and-shoot ballast discriminator in the1000FLT speeds the replacement of old magnetic ballasts with new energy-efficient electronic models by quickly identifying exactly what type of ballast is in the fixture before they climb the ladder. There is no need to remove the bulbs or to make contact with live circuitry. Simply point the 1000FLT fluorescent light tester at the glowing bulb and determine the ballast type.

The tester comes with a rugged, metal test rod that extends up to 31 inches (79 cm) eliminating the need to climb a ladder for many tests, and a belt-style holster so the tester is always within easy reach. The 1000FLT is protected by a three-year warranty.

The Fluke 1000FLT Fluorescent Light Tester is available now. For more information visit: http://www.fluke.com/fluke/auen/electrical-testers/Electrical-Testers/Fluke-1000FLT.htm?PID=78736
