(Updated April 13, 2012) April 5, 2012 – Unveiled today at the Fluke Press Summit 2012, the Fluke 805 vibration meter is a portable multifunction vibration screening tool that promises quantifiable information on the bearing and overall health of motors and other rotating equipment. The 805 is suitable for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need “reliable and repeatable measurements” of rotating equipment to make imperative go/no-go maintenance decisions. The 805 measures overall vibration from 10 Hz to 1000 Hz and provides a four-level severity assessment for overall vibration and bearing condition. It measures bearing condition (CF a.k.a. Crest Factor Plus); that is, detects peaks in the vibration signal readings of roller bearings from 4000 Hz to 20,000 Hz, and uses a proprietary algorithm to interpret severity. The 805 also measure surface temperature; an infrared sensor automatically measures contact temperature and displays it along with the vibration reading for a broader understanding of machine health.
