Fluke Accelix Advances Data-Driven Maintenance

Fluke releases a new version of its eMaint computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) with improvements that include integration with Fluke Connect Conditioning Monitoring Software and SCHAD, enabling full integration with supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Version 11.4.5 of eMaint provides companies with an integrated system that reportedly improves the way organizations monitor equipment health and manage maintenance operations, resources, and compliance. The integration of multiple data sources allows faster maintenance decisions that maximize the utilization of resources, according to Fluke.

The software upgrade includes:

Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring Software Integration— Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software enables maintenance managers to remotely monitor multiple assets while also producing asset alarms and numerous data graphs per asset with correlating current, voltage, temperature, vibration, and power quality monitoring.

Users can now connect Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software with their eMaint X4 CMMS account so data and alerts automatically feed into eMaint, eliminating the need to manually import data. Key features of the integration include the ability to:

  • Synchronize assets within eMaint X4 with Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software.
  • Trend live data readings from select Fluke Sensors products in eMaint X4 (readings are available on the asset record, asset related tables, or the dashboard).
  • Export data feeds from Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software into eMaint X4.
  • Link eMaint X4 assets to existing assets within a Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software account.

SCHAD AMR Integration— SCHAD Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is a stand-alone module that connects automated systems directly into a CMMS system for dramatically improved capture of asset performance, providing significant cost savings through enhanced maintenance practices and reduced downtime.

Users can now connect SCHAD AMR with their eMaint X4 CMMS account, allowing programmable logic controllers connected to AMR to push meter readings automatically to the eMaint system so data can be integrated into one system saving time and eliminating redundancies.
