Cost-saving Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter bundle includes an external vibration sensor for access to hard-to-reach locations


For a limited time period, until 31st December 2017, Fluke is offering a 16% saving when purchasing a FLUKE-805 FC/805 ES bundle consisting of a Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter, together with a Fluke 805/ES external vibration sensor. This can be found at Saving is based on the cost of the items if purchased separately. The FLUKE-80/ES extends the use of the meter to crowded or hard-to-reach locations. The Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter is a portable, multifunction vibration screening tool that provides quantifiable information on the bearings and overall health of motors and other rotating equipment; the 805 FC can share that data in real time via Fluke Connect™. It is ideal for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need reliable and repeatable measurements of rotating equipment to make imperative go/no-go maintenance decisions.

The Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter measures overall vibration from 10Hz to 1,000Hz and provides a four-level severity assessment for overall vibration and bearing condition. It can detect peaks in the vibration signal readings of roller bearings from 4,000Hz to 20,000Hz, and use a proprietary algorithm to interpret severity to determine if the bearing is going bad. 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, and offers a flashlight for viewing measurement locations in dark areas.

The Fluke 805/ES is an external vibration sensor with a powerful “U-shaped” magnet that is ideal in situations for which it is either difficult or impractical to use the onboard vibration sensor tip of the Vibration Meter. The 805/ES stretches to over 2m and allows measurements to be taken behind machine guards or enclosures, or in out-of-reach places where it is difficult to apply sufficient manual pressure to the Vibration Meter.

The Fluke 805 FC has a unique sensor tip design that minimises measurement variations caused by device angle or contact pressure. This reduces operator error and improves 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.

Vibration screening is a critical part of motor maintenance, and recording trending measurement data over time, using Microsoft® Excel with pre-built templates, provides invaluable insight into long-term motor health. The 805 FC can automatically save vibration data wirelessly to Fluke Connect cloud storage so authorised 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.

Fluke Connect System

The Fluke 805 FC, along with more than 20 other Fluke tools, is part of the Fluke Connect system – the world’s largest portfolio of connected tools. It allows technicians to make better and faster decisions by having access to maintenance records wherever they are working. The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

Using EquipmentLog™, technicians and managers can get all 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.

Technicians can also share measurements with other team members in real time with ShareLive™ video calls to get approvals for repairs or get questions answered without leaving the field.
