PMWS6: Wireless monitoring for your CBM strategy: How vibration, thermal and electrical online monitoring provide a complete solution

Frederic Baudart , Lead Product Application Specialist, Fluke John Bernet, Application Specialist, Fluke


Vibration screening is one of the most effective ways to detect and prevent equipment failure or downtime as well as identify early failure modes. Performing vibration analysis can be complex. Vibration analyzers typically require advanced training, third-party experts, or are too expensive to use on most equipment, leaving significant gaps in maintenance programs.

However, simplified vibration screening in combination with other types of portable and wireless condition monitoring can speed up a facility’s journey to reliability.

This workshop will discuss combining the multiple technologies, asset types, and tool selection which include the following:

  • Technologies: Mechanical, electrical and thermal
  • Asset types: Pumps, compressors, motors, turbines, fans, electrical panels, process equipment and HVAC systems
  • Tool Selection: Portable, wireless and software integration

This presentation will discuss how combined technologies will give you a complete solution for your preventive maintenance and reliability program.
