EC: Fluke Condition Monitoring

Hardware — Handheld test, measurement, calibration: Fluke Condition Monitoring is a system of rugged voltage, current, temperature, and power sensors that can be moved from assets to asset and left in place for continuous monitoring. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.

Monitoring plant equipment is crucial to avoiding costly downtime, but it is often too expensive, impractical, or complicated to capture performance data from all critical assets. Fluke Condition Monitoring solves these problems with a new system of rugged voltage, current, temperature, and power sensors that can be moved from assets to asset and left in place for continuous monitoring. With Fluke Condition Monitoring, maintenance teams get a practical, scalable system that delivers the continuous data and alarms they need to prevent equipment downtime.

The Fluke Condition Monitoring system consists of wireless sensors, a gateway that can receive signals from the sensors up to 30 ft away, and familiar Fluke technologies, such as iFlex current probes, current clamps, and temperature sensors. The system can be set up by maintenance technicians and monitoring can begin in a matter of minutes. The sensors send measurements 24 hours a day for up to 40 days with each sensor sending as frequently as one measurement per second—up to 86,400 measurements a day—to capture elusive intermittent events.

The Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software allows managers to compile measurements from both the Fluke Condition Monitoring sensors and Fluke Connect wireless tools along with a history of work orders to create a comprehensive view of equipment health.
