Fluke Australia announces a new smart phone app that allows maintenance teams working in the field to make faster decisions through instant access to machinery data and test measurements.
Maintenance teams make better and 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. However, historical data is usually only accessible back in the office, and team members are rarely in the same place at the same time.
The new Fluke Connect system solves these problems while increasing the safety of technicians working with energised equipment. The new Fluke Connect app transfers measurement data from test tools to smart phones and the cloud, improving maintenance team communication, safety and productivity.
The Fluke Connect system is a smart phone app that lets maintenance technicians capture, securely store and share data with their teams in the field. Faster and better decisions can be made in the field with the maintenance team 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. 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 their work spot, eliminating the need to write down measurements while being able to share this data with other technicians in various locations.
Team collaboration is simplified with ShareLive video calls, which let technicians share measurements with other team members in real time, and get approvals for repairs or questions answered without leaving the field.
Feature highlights of the Fluke Connect app also include 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; and TrendIt, which lets technicians instantly graph data and share findings, helping to identify trends and quickly make informed decisions.
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.
The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
