The costs of poor power quality

Information from Fluke Productivity is the key to survival in today’s globally competitive environment. When you think about the basic inputs to production-time, labour, and materials – you can see there isn’t much room for optimisation. You have 24 hours per day, labour is costly, and you don’t have much choice in materials. Thus, every […]

How do you measure energy consumption?

Information from Fluke With power, demand… and a power quality tool: With  energy costs high, and  getting higher, many facilities are  trying to reduce their energy consumption. Most have not  previously analysed their monthly energy usage, traced it to operational components, or  broken out  the  utility fees. And  until  you  understand how you’re using energy, […]

Troubleshooting camera with an infrared heat map

Comtest has introduced the Fluke VT02 viisual IR thermometer, a troubleshooting camera with an infrared heat map. Until now, electricians and industrial, HVAC, and automotive technicians have had to choose between single-point infrared thermometers and high-resolution thermal imagers (infrared or “IR” cameras). The Fluke VT02 visual IR thermometer fills the gap, for when a single-spot […]

Power quality and energy analysers

South Africa’s cost of power is increasing and users of power are being asked to save energy wherever possible to help prevent future power cuts.  Industry and facilities alike are looking for ways to conserve energy in order to reduce ever-escalating energy bills. Fluke has come up with a solution: the newly launched Fluke 430 […]

New scope and digital multimeters

Comtest has added two new models to its 190 series II range of handheld scopemeters, the Fluke-190-502 and the Fluke-190-502S.
