Ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion when you need it

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS - Con­tact:

Main­te­nance teams make bet­ter, faster decisions by hav­ing im­me­di­ate ac­cess to his­tor­i­cal records of the ma­chin­ery they are main­tain­ing, and be­ing able to re­view mea­sure­ments in real time with team mem­bers and su­per­vi­sors.

Yet his­tor­i­cal data is usu­ally only ac­ces­si­ble back in the of­fice, and team mem­bers are rarely in the same place at the same time. The Fluke Con­nect sys­tem solves these prob­lems while in­creas­ing the safety of tech­ni­cians work­ing with en­er­gised equip­ment.

The sys­tem fea­tures a set of tools and smart phone app that let main­te­nance tech­ni­cians cap­ture, se­curely store and share data with their teams from the field. It helps them make bet­ter decisions faster by be­ing able to view all tem­per­a­ture, me­chan­i­cal, elec­tri­cal and vi­bra­tion mea­sure­ments for each equip­ment as­set in one place.

More than 20 Fluke tools con­nect wire­lessly with the Fluke Con­nect app – the largest set of con­nected test tools in the world. Com­pat­i­ble tools in­clude dig­i­tal mul­ti­me­ters, in­frared cam­eras, in­su­la­tion testers, process me­ters and spe­cific volt­age, cur­rent and tem­per­a­ture mod­els.

Tech­ni­cians can add a com­pre­hen­sive set of mea­sure­ments and in­frared im­ages to Fluke Cloud stor­age from wher­ever they’re work­ing. The data is au­to­mat­i­cally stored, elim­i­nat­ing the need to write down mea­sure­ments and let­ting oth­ers see what the tech­ni­cian sees from other lo­ca­tions.

Team col­lab­o­ra­tion is made easy with ShareLive video calls, which al­lows tech­ni­cians to share mea­sure­ments with other team mem­bers in real time, and get ap­provals for re­pairs or ques­tions an­swered without leav­ing the field.

The Fluke app fea­tures Equip­men­tLog records, which let tech­ni­cians as­sign mea­sure­ments to spe­cific equip­ment, cre­at­ing a his­tory of test mea­sure­ment data that helps them iden­tify prob­lems and make bet­ter decisions.

TrendIt lets them in­stantly graph data and share find­ings, help­ing to iden­tify trends and quickly make in­formed decisions.

The Fluke Con­nect app can be down­loaded for free from the Ap­ple App Store and the Google Play Store.

Fluke Cloud stor­age in­fra­struc­ture has been built to be one of the most flex­i­ble and se­cure cloud com­put­ing en­vi­ron­ments avail­able today. The Fluke Cloud stor­age ser­vice provider uses state-ofthe-art elec­tronic sur­veil­lance, multi-fac­tor ac­cess con­trol sys­tems and 24x7 staffing at its data cen­tres.

Fur­ther­more, the servers have built-in fire­walls, en­crypted data stor­age and se­cure ac­cess specif­i­cally de­signed to pro­tect data.

By hav­ing ac­cess to his­tor­i­cal data and en­abling col­lab­o­ra­tion among the en­tire main­te­nance team, Fluke Con­nect saves time, in­creases pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­duces the need for emer­gency re­pairs or costly shut­downs.
