August 8, 2018 – The Fluke 3561 FC Vibration Sensor is designed to allow maintenance teams to add remote, continuous vibration monitoring to virtually any rotating equipment. With a frequency range of 10 to 1,000 hertz, the 3561 FC detects and notifies users of conditional changes caused by critical faults like imbalance, misalignment, looseness and bearing wear, providing warning of impending equipment failure.
The 3561 FC sensor installation and setup allows technicians to start monitoring vibration on equipment in about an hour. The triaxial sensors deliver continuous measurements while the asset is in use, permitting maintenance technicians to remain at a safe distance, away from dangerous rotating equipment.
Vibration data from the 3561 FC is wirelessly transmitted via the Fluke 3502 FC Gateway to Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring (FCCM) software allowing maintenance teams to remotely monitor asset health anytime and virtually anywhere, whether on the desktop or a smart device. The Fluke Connect app allows teams to view and understand vibration data, enabling them to screen for potential equipment degradation. FCCM software aggregates real-time and historical data from all Fluke Connect-enabled tools and sensors for a comprehensive picture of equipment health. Teams are empowered to make informed maintenance decisions.
The FCCM software also generates automatic alarms when assets experience conditional changes outside the Fluke Overall Vibration Severity scale parameters, notifying maintenance team members before issues become critical.
