It is well known throughout the maintenance and reliability world that vibration monitoring is one of the most effective ways for teams to detect potential equipment failures before they result in costly downtime or equipment failure. However, vibration analysis is complex and can be cost-prohibitive if sensors are placed on noncritical assets. That’s where the new Fluke™ 3561 FC Vibration Sensor comes in.
This new condition monitoring technology by Fluke Corporation allows maintenance and reliability teams to add remote, continuous vibration monitoring to virtually any rotating equipment, maximizing equipment uptime and minimizing unnecessary routes. With a broad frequency range, the 3561 FC detects and notifies users of conditional changes caused by critical faults such as imbalance, misalignment, looseness and bearing wear, providing precipitous warning of impending equipment failure.
The Fluke 3561 FC Vibration Sensor is the ultimate time-saver because it sets up quickly and provides insights remotely. Install it in under an hour and let the Fluke Connect™ system grade asset health. Increase uptime by viewing trends and receiving alarms on your smart device or computer within seconds of an abnormality. Sensors capture continuous vibration data so your team can avoid unnecessary or dangerous routes.
Fluke’s newest vibration sensor is small enough to fit on equipment in hard-to-reach or dangerous locations and affordable enough to place on multiple assets to provide thorough visibility of overall asset health throughout a facility. Installation and setup does not require extensive setup or training, so technicians can start vibration monitoring on equipment with ease. The sensors deliver continuous measurements while an asset is in use without maintenance technicians needing to monitor them, keeping them safely away from dangerous moving equipment.
The Fluke 3561 FC Vibration Sensor will launch on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at MaximoWorld 2018.
