New Fluke Connect™ system transfers measurement data from test tools to smart phones and the cloud, improving maintenance team communication, safety and productivity

Fluke LogoMay 12, 2014 – Maintenance teams make better, faster decisions by having immediate access to historical records of the machinery they are maintaining and being able to review measurements in real time with team members and supervisors. Yet historical data is usually only accessible back in the office, and team members are rarely in the same place at the same time. The Fluke Connect™ system solves these problems while increasing the safety of technicians working with energised equipment.

The Fluke Connect system is a set of tools and smart phone app that let maintenance technicians capture, securely store and share data with their teams from the field. It helps them make better decisions faster by being able to view all temperature, mechanical, electrical and vibration measurements for each equipment asset in one place.

More than 20 Fluke tools connect wirelessly with the Fluke Connect app — the largest set of connected test tools in the world. Compatible tools include digital multimeters, infrared cameras, insulation testers, process meters and specific voltage, current and temperature models.

Technicians can add a comprehensive set of measurements and infrared images to Fluke Cloud™ storage from wherever they’re working. The data is automatically stored, eliminating the need to write down measurements and letting others see what the technician sees from other locations.

Team collaboration is made easy with ShareLive™ video calls, which let technicians share measurements with other team members in real time, and get approvals for repairs or questions answered without leaving the field.

The Fluke Connect app features EquipmentLog™ records, which let technicians assign measurements to specific equipment, creating a history of test measurement data that helps them identify problems and make better decisions. And TrendIt™ lets them instantly graph data and share findings, helping to identify trends and quickly make informed decisions.

The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
