Vibration Testing System

July 9, 2012

With the new Fluke 810 Vibration Testing System from Davis Instruments, operators can analyze motors, fans and blowers, belts and chain drives, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and more to determine mechanical faults. The tester identifies and locates imbalances, misalignments, loose bearings and similar insufficiencies quickly so that operators can take action and prevent production delays or losses. Because the system pinpoints root causes, unplanned downtime can be reduced. The Fluke 810 Vibration Testing System features a fault severity scale with four levels to prioritize maintenance. The system recommends repairs to technicians to assist in decision-making and facilitate corrective action. Onboard context-sensitive help mechanism offers real-time tips and guidance to new users. A laser tachometer is included for accurate diagnosis of machine running speed. The system’s tri-axial accelerometer reduces measurement time by 66% over single-axis accelerometers. Easy-to-operate interface takes basic parameters, such as rpm and horsepower, from user input to begin its analysis. An expandable two gigabytes of onboard memory holds data. Included software generates diagnostic reports, transfers data, shows diagnostic and vibration spectra, and more.
