Courtesy: FlukeFluke's 805 FC Vibration Meter is a portable multifunction 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 designed for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need reliable and repeatable measurements of rotating equipment to make imperative go/no-go maintenance decisions. The 805 FC automatically saves vibration data wirelessly to Fluke Connect cloud storage so authorized 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.

The EquipmentLog feature allows technicians and managers to get all of their measurement data in one place to get the complete asset story. EquipmentLog history allows technicians to 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.

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 to 20,000 Hz, and uses a proprietary algorithm to interpret severity to determine if the bearing is going bad. And 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 sensor tip design that minimizes measurement variations caused by device angle or contact pressure. This is designed to reduce operator error and improve 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.
