Fluke 810 Diagnostic technology provides on-the-spot diagnosis of mechanical problems.

Mississauga’s Fluke Corporation has introduced the Fluke 810 Vibration Tester – a troubleshooting instrument for vibration. The diagnostic tool is designed and programmed to diagnose mechanical problems such as unbalance, looseness, misalignment and bearing failures in a wide variety of mechanical equipment, including motors, belts and chain drives, gearboxes, couplings, pumps, compressors, closed coupled machines and spindles.

Mechanical diagnosis with the Fluke 810 begins when the user places the Fluke triaxial TEDS accelerometer on the machine under test. As the machine under test operates, the accelerometer detects its vibration along three planes of movement and transmits that information to the Fluke 810. Using a set of advanced algorithms, the tool then provides a plain-text diagnosis of the machine with a recommended solution.
