Fluke Introduces 805 FC Vibration Meter

Fluke Corp. introduces the Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter, a portable multifunction vibration screening tool that provides quantifiable information on the bearing and overall health of motors and other rotating equipment, and shares that data in real time via Fluke Connect. The Fluke 805 FC is suited for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need reliable and repeatable measurements of rotating equipment.

The 805 FC automatically saves vibration data wirelessly to Fluke Connect cloud storage. With EquipmentLog, technicians and managers get their measurement data in one place. 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). Technicians can also share measurements with ShareLive video calls.

The handheld Fluke 805 FC measures overall vibration from 10 to 1,000 Hz and provides a four-level severity assessment for overall vibration and bearing condition. It detects peaks in the vibration signal readings of roller bearings from 4,000 Hz to 20,000 Hz, and uses 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.

The 805 FC sensor tip design minimizes measurement variations caused by device angle or contact pressure. The meter also provides a severity scale for both overall vibration and bearing condition readings.
