Portable multifunction vibration screening tool

June 22nd, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

Comtest has announced the Fluke 805 vibration meter, a portable multifunction vibration screening tool that provides quantifiable information on a bearing and the overall health of motors and other rotating equipment. The Fluke 805 is ideal for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need reliable and repeatable measurements of rotating equipment to make imperative go/no-go maintenance decisions. Most vibration pens and other screening devices currently on the market provide an overall number for vibration condition and some also provide an overall number for bearing condition. Due to inadequate design and measurement technology, users consider most vibration products to be unreliable and difficult to understand. Fluke conducted customer research and the findings highlighted shortcomings in other vibration screening pens and devices. Its design engineers then responded by producing the 805 vibration meter – certainly not a toy – but a vastly superior meter on every front.
