EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shaft misalignment in rotating machinery has the potential to cost companies thousands of dollars a year in replacement bearing cost, repairs, extra power consumption, and unplanned downtime. In three simple steps, the Fluke® 830 Laser Shaft Alignment Tool delivers precise shaft condition measurements and actionable results that, along with vibration testing, infrared thermography, and other predictive maintenance measurements, enable plant maintenance teams to increase machine life and keep plants running at maximum efficiency.
Shaft misalignments as small 0.06 mm can cause failures of seals, couplings, and bearings as well as increase motor vibration and heat. Traditional alignment methods, like straightedges/feeler gauges, are too imprecise to measure small yet significant shaft offsets. Dial indicators provide higher resolution, but are complex, time consuming, and require highly skilled technicians.
In three simple steps, the single laser measurement technology of the rugged Fluke 830 delivers a high level of precision and repeatability in evaluating shaft alignment:
1. Setup – determines a machine's dimensions;
2. Measure – actively takes readings from three sectors as the laser is rotated around a shaft;
3. Diagnose – provides actual correction numbers along with a four-level, color-coded severity scale indicating whether the machine is in or out of alignment tolerances.
The intuitive guided user interface of the 830 provides easy to understand results that do not require extensive alignment knowledge. Its all-in-one results screen shows both coupling results and feet corrections (vertical and horizontal) in real terms making it easy for maintenance technicians to take corrective action.
Fluke offers a complete line of predictive maintenance tools designed to help keep plants up and running, including vibration testers to diagnose fault and severity, and infrared cameras to evaluate machine health. Fluke predictive maintenance tools deliver the measurements needed to reduce unplanned downtime and decrease repair costs.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
