Fluke Announces Immediate Availability of Wireless, Cloud-based, Equipment-Condition Monitoring System

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-3-48-13-pmFluke Condition Monitoring, the latest addition to the manufacturer’s Fluke Connect reliability system, features rugged voltage, current, temperature, and power sensors that can be moved from asset to asset or left in place for continuous monitoring.

Introduction of this cloud-based solution means that the Fluke Connect reliability platform can now compile measurements from the sensors, a wide range the manufacturer’s wireless tools, and a history of work orders. The result is a truly comprehensive view of equipment health.

In announcing the immediate availability of Fluke Condition Monitoring, Everett, WA-based Fluke noted that the sensors give maintenance teams a practical, scalable system that delivers the continuous data and alarms they need to prevent downtime without costly equipment retrofits or specialized training. The offering overcomes legacy system silos and IT conflicts, works on any equipment type, and helps teams stay effective while monitoring issues in different locations.

How It Works
Fluke Condition Monitoring consists of various wireless sensors and a gateway that receives signals from the sensors from up to 30 ft. away and works seamlessly with trusted Fluke technologies, such as iFlex current probes, current clamps, temperature sensors, and three-phase power monitoring.

Users can set up the system and begin monitoring in a matter of minutes. The sensors will transmit up to one measurement per second to the cloud, and equipment data and alarm notifications can be viewed through the Fluke Connect platform on a smartphone or web browser.

Fluke Condition Monitoring is available for purchase now. For more information, CLICK HERE.

Schneider Electric Speeds, Simplifies Utility-Operator Decisions with Predictive Asset Analytics Suite for Power Generation

screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-1-28-45-pmNews from the Schneider Electric “Maximize Return on Assets” Users Group Conference in Chicago this week includes today’s announcement on the release of Predictive Asset Analytics Suite for Power Generation. Built on the company’s Avantis PriSM platform, the product helps utility operators minimize outage disruptions, improve cross-department collaboration, and increase operational agility.

According to the Lake Forest-based manufacturer, this Asset Performance Management (APM) solution can drive safer, more reliable, and sustainable operational efficiency while providing a digital framework to transform business value.

How It Works
Predictive Asset Analytics Suite for Power Generation provides a closed loop performance management framework to let decision makers contextualize real-time performances across their fleet, perform causal analysis of any non-conformity, and then create a template of the resulting knowledge for later use, thus reducing downtime from future non-conformity incidents. Part of Schneider Electric’s comprehensive Enterprise APM platform, it bridges skills and process gaps with smart technology, by combining advanced predictive analytics with knowledge management, and decision support to maximize asset availability. Schneider Electric notes that the solution offers a simplified and enriched data-analysis and reporting framework, delivered by way of a single user interface with an integrated flow of intelligence. By digitizing operations and decision-support knowledge, power generation operators have new opportunities to transform their businesses along with their workforce.

As Doug Warren, vice president, Industry Solutions at Schneider Electric, explained the new offering, “Power-generation operators must increasingly operate with greater collaboration across departments, driving a need for a single version of the truth across stakeholders and an ability to better manage information across multiple systems, people, and processes.” Predictive Asset Analytics Suite for this sector, he said, enables information-sharing by connecting multiple systems with context to ensure process rigors are followed in terms of ownership, which ultimately simplifies collaborative decision-making.

Schneider Electric notes that it has worked closely with utility providers to deliver reliable power to homes and businesses since the end of the 19th century. Predictive Asset Analytics Suite builds upon that knowledge, adds subscription-model pricing options, and is bundled with a comprehensive Customer FIRST maintenance and support program. As a result, power generation operators can incorporate intelligent information into their processes and digitize that knowledge to achieve and sustain operational excellence.

Leakage-Current Clamps

1610mtprod12pThe company’s 368 FC and 369 FC leakage-current clamps aid identify, document, record, and compare leakage-current readings over time to help prevent problems before they occur without shutting down critical equipment. The meters have large-diameter jaws, 40 and 61 mm, respectively, for work with oversized conductors. The clamp jaws are fully shielded and capture leakage-current signals as low as 10 microamps, while minimizing external electromagnetic interference. The clamps are part of Fluke Connect, a system of wireless test tools that communicate using the Fluke Connect app or software.
