Portable Wireless Sensors Help Provide Increased Uptime
A system of voltage, current, temperature and power sensors can be used to manage plant preventive maintenance such as equipment inspection and monitoring as well as to set alarm thresholds and assign repairs.
Offered by Fluke, the integrated system includes condition-monitoring equipment, wireless test tools and asset-management software. The condition-monitoring system can collect continuous data and alarm to prevent equipment downtime. Fluke Connect can be moved from asset to asset or left in place for continuous monitoring.
The system consists of wireless sensors and a gateway that receives signals from the sensors from up to 30 feet away. The sensors transmit measurements to a web-based portal, and online updating can be set to occur as frequently as one measurement per second. Equipment data and alarm notifications are viewed through the Fluke Connect platform on a smartphone or web browser.
