New Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter is the latest addition to Fluke Connect – the world’s largest wireless system of test and measurement tools

Fluke LogoMarch 3, 2015 – Fluke Corp. introduces the Fluke® 805 FC Vibration Meter, a portable multi-function vibration screening tool that provides quantifiable information on the bearing and overall health of motors and other rotating equipment, and shares that data in real time via Fluke Connect™. The Fluke 805 FC is ideal for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need reliable and repeatable measurements of rotating equipment to make imperative go/no-go maintenance decisions.

Vibration screening is a critical part of motor maintenance and trending measurement data over time provides invaluable insight into long-term motor health. The 805 FC automatically saves vibration data wirelessly to Fluke Connect cloud storage so authorised team members can view all of the measurement data for each asset with the Fluke Connect app on their mobile devices before they leave the inspection site.

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.

The 805 FC, along with more than 20 other Fluke tools, are part of the Fluke Connect system — the world’s largest portfolio of connected tools. It lets technicians to make better and faster decisions by having access to maintenance records wherever they are working. The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

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.

Fluke Cloud secure data storage
Fluke Cloud storage infrastructure has been built to be one of the most flexible and secure cloud computing environments available today. The Fluke Cloud storage service provider uses state-of-the-art electronic surveillance, multi-factor access control systems and 24×7 staffing at its data centres. Furthermore, the servers have built-in firewalls, encrypted data storage and secure access specifically designed to protect data.

By having access to historical data and enabling collaboration among the entire maintenance team, Fluke Connect saves time, increases productivity and reduces the need for emergency repairs or costly shutdowns.
