1607mtprod25pFour additional lines of high-performance triaxial DC accelerometers are available. The plug-and-play vibration-measurement devices are suitable for zero-to-medium frequency applications where performance reliability, low noise, and long-term stability are required. All designs incorporate three orthogonally mounted, low-noise single-axis accelerometers into a single epoxy-sealed anodized aluminum case. Units are available in standard ranges from +/– 2 to +/– 400 g with +/– 4-V differential or 0.5- to 4.5-V single-ended output.

Portable, ‘Industry-First’ Fluke 3500 FC Series Condition Monitoring System Goes Anywhere, Anytime and So Can Its Users


Fluke (Everett, WA) has begun accepting pre-orders on what it says is another “industry first.” The company’s new 3500 FC Series Condition Monitoring System incorporates portable wireless sensors and a gateway for connectivity that provide continuous monitoring of electrical and temperature measurements.

How It Works
The system includes sensors for voltage, amps, temperature, and power that can be moved from asset to asset and left in place for over four weeks. Once deployed, they begin collecting and streaming valuable equipment data that authorized personnel can access from anywhere, anytime, through mobile devices or computers.

With the Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring Software, measurements from each sensor are taken as frequently as every second and sent to cloud-based storage. Viewed through a dashboard, those measurements provide history of equipment performance before, during, and after an events.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 10.44.16 PMAccording to the manufacturer, this veritable Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) “toolbox” is easy to use and fast and easy to install. The system scales to any plant, whether its equipment is aging, yet crucial, or new, complex, and, accordingly, more challenging to maintain.

Using straightforward Fluke technology, technicians can set up and start monitoring equipment in a matter of minutes, even in tight, difficult-to-reach spots. They merely place the sensors and walk away (for up to 40 days).

The  3500 FC Series Condition Monitoring System works with the already extensive (and growing) Fluke Connect system of portable, wireless tools and asset-management software that, among other things, allows users to receive alarms, save measurements, and create work orders from a smart phone, tablet, or computer.

Flush-Tip Pressure Transmitter

1607mtprod23pModel 386 pressure transmitter has a flush-tip zero cavity design said to eliminate the traditional measurement challenges of port clogging and removes installation torque effects on the output signal. The unit has a solid stainless-steel machined diaphragm and all-welded sealed housings. An isolated sensor reportedly eliminates the need for adjustments to the pressure transmitter after installation. Available in 13 standard ranges from 0 to 150 to 0 to 10k psig or psis, the unit can withstand as much as 1.5X proof pressure and 5X burst pressure. Additional ranges and models are available.

Life-Cycle-Management Software

FactoryTalk AssetCentre v7.0 software automates discovery and tracks the status of devices, network switches, and software on workstation computers across a facility or production operation. The software scans a network to discover hardware, firmware, and software information for assets active in a facility. The devices are then tracked in an active-asset inventory. The asset-inventory agent can be scheduled to scan at regular intervals or run on demand. New discoveries are compiled for user confirmation before they are added to the active inventory. Ongoing tracking of updates provides a history of how a system has changed and potential hazards. Manual entry is still available for devices that are not identifiable during the scan or to fill in missing information or attributes for discovered devices. A mobile-friendly dashboard provides information access.
