Vibration Meter

May 23, 2012

Discover the reliable, repeatable and accurate way to check bearings and overall vibration. The Fluke 805 Vibration Meter features an innovative sensor and sensor tip design that helps minimize measurement variations caused by device angle or contact pressure. Use this handheld screening meter for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need repeatable, severity-scaled readings of overall vibration and bearing condition. The Fluke 805 Vibration Meter delivers consistent data quality at both low and high frequency ranges. Four-level severity scale assesses urgency of problems and provides exportable data via USB. Trends can be documented in Excel® using built-in templates. On-board memory holds and saves up to 3500 measurements. The overall vibration measurement (10 Hz to 1000 Hz) for acceleration, velocity and displacement units of measurement accommodates a wide variety of machines. The Crest Factor+ provides reliable bearing assessment using direct sensor tip measurements between 4000 Hz and 20,000 Hz. A colored lighting system and on-screen comments indicate how much pressure needs to be applied to take measurements. Noncontact temperature measurement with Spot IR Sensor increases diagnostic capabilities.
