How will Fluke Connect™ enabled test tools make my job easier?
They will help cut problem-to-solution time significantly.
I maintain R&D facilities and equipment and work with scientists to develop new processes. Fluke Connect is helping us address two major challenges.
First, we often want to log measurements from energized loads to identify problems, but have been limited by safety concerns. We can set up the Fluke Connect modules at the load and then move a safe distance away or even out of the building and view the results on a smart phone.
Second, our facility management was outsourced during the economic downturn and we have only a skeleton in-house troubleshooting staff. To better predict potential problems, our in-house staff has been running longitudinal studies. With Fluke Connect we can compare real time data from multiple FC modules (and video) to our data archived in the cloud to get a comprehensive view of our system health.
Fluke Connect tools for small electrical maintenance teams in food processing:
- One v3000 FC voltage module for taking and saving single phase voltage readings outside the arc flash zone
- Three a3000 FC current modules for taking and saving three phase measurements – load studies, unbalance, etc.
- Ti125 Infrared Camera for taking, saving and field-referencing thermal images of critical equipment
