Popular Condition Monitoring App Adds Thermal Monitoring

Fluke has expanded the capabilities of its Condition Monitoring system to include thermal monitoring with the addition of the Fluke 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor. Maintenance managers can now collect a more comprehensive variety of key-indicator data — thermal imaging, voltage, current, temperature, and power — on critical equipment to build a real-time picture of an asset's condition. With the right mix of data all in one place, managers can implement planned maintenance and decrease the frequency of preventive rounds.

 

Fluke Condition Monitoring is a cloud-based software platform in combination with rugged electrical, temperature, and power quality monitoring sensors to support condition-based maintenance programs. The software aggregates data pooling measurements from Fluke wireless tools with real-time condition monitoring data and historical records for a complete picture of asset health.

Visually inspect thermal patterns on multiple assets

 

The 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor is the first thermal imaging condition monitoring sensor to visualize thermal patterns on multiple assets. Alarms can be set to notify the user when the center-point temperature exceeds preset parameters. The sensor communicates directly with the Fluke Connect® Cloud for continuous streaming of thermal images, enabling maintenance managers to detect problems by visually inspecting sequential thermal images remotely.

 

The compact sensor can be placed in areas that are dangerous or difficult to reach, reducing the risk to technicians. Images and measurements can be viewed on handheld devices or computers allowing anytime access to key data to conduct smarter evaluations.

 

The sensor can operate in high-performance mode to capture the most accurate images over a 11-14 hour period or in energy-saving mode to capture sequential images for up to three days. The ac power adapter can also be used for longer-term continuous monitoring. Equipment data can be viewed in multiple graphs, including center point temperature data, for more comprehensive evaluations of asset health.
