Plant Engineering recognizes the Fluke Connect reliability platform for improving workforce efficiency and productivity

Fluke Condition Monitoring and 279 FC Thermal Multimeter, both part of the Fluke Connect system, are finalists in the magazine's awards

EVERETT, Wash., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke® Condition Monitoring and the Fluke® 279 FC Thermal Multimeter are finalists in the Maintenance Tools and Equipment category of the Plant Engineering 2016 Product of the Year Awards. The awards honor new products that help professionals do their jobs smarter, safer, more efficiently, and more productively as chosen by the magazine's subscribers.

Fluke Conditioning Monitoring is a new system of rugged voltage, current, temperature, and power sensors that can be moved from asset to asset or left in place for continuous monitoring to support condition-based maintenance programs.

This is the second honor for both products and the 24th for the underlying Fluke Connect® system. Fluke Connect is the company's full-feature SaaS reliability platform that permits Fluke tool users to receive, store, visualize, and report electronic measurement data from more than 40 Fluke Connect wireless test tools.

Fluke Condition Monitoring for condition-based maintenance
Fluke Conditioning Monitoring is a new system of rugged voltage, current, temperature, and power sensors that can be moved from asset to asset or left in place for continuous monitoring to support condition-based maintenance programs. With Fluke Condition Monitoring, maintenance teams get a practical, scalable system that accelerates issue detection, analysis, and resolution to optimize the lifespan of expensive equipment without retrofits or specialized training.

Maintenance technicians can set the system up and begin monitoring in a matter of minutes, with the sensors transmitting measurements to the cloud as frequently as one measurement per second. Equipment data and alarm notifications are viewed through the Fluke Connect platform on a smartphone or web browser.

The Fluke Connect reliability platform compiles measurements from both the Fluke Condition Monitoring sensors and Fluke Connect wireless tools along with a history of work orders to create a comprehensive view of equipment health. The wireless, cloud-based solution overcomes legacy system silos and IT conflicts, works on any equipment type, and helps teams stay effective while monitoring issues in different locations.

Fluke 279 FC Thermal Multimeter
The 279 FC Thermal Multimeter is the first test tool to integrate a full-featured true RMS digital multimeter with a thermal camera in one device to speed troubleshooting. The 279 FC allows technicians to quickly and safely check for hot spots in fuses, wires, insulators, connectors, splices, and switches with the imager and then troubleshoot and analyze issues with the DMM. By combining two powerful test tools into one, electricians and technicians can carry fewer tools and have a higher level of confidence they have the tools handy to solve problems.

In addition to measuring both electrical and thermal properties, the 279 FC can transmit test results via Fluke Connect. Both numeric data from electrical measurements and graphic files from related thermal measurements can be stored to the cloud, shared with colleagues and built into reports.

The thermal multimeter features 15 electrical measurement functions including ac/dc voltage, resistance, continuity, capacitance, diode test, min/max, and frequency. The optional iFlex® clamp can wrap around conductors and wires in tight, hard-to-reach spaces and expands its measurement capabilities to include ac current up to 2500 A. The 3.5 inch (8.89 cm) full-color LCD screen makes for easy, clear viewing of images.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
