Fluke (Everett, WA) and Veros Systems have entered into an agreement to collaborate on asset performance and condition monitoring technologies, with the goal of increasing visibility into the efficiency and reliability of electric motor driven machines. The Fluke 438-II Power Quality and Motor Analyzer is the first tool to result from that collaboration.
The Fluke 438-II analyzes three-phase power quality measurements and uses an innovative method developed by Veros to calculate motor output torque, speed, horsepower and efficiency. Using this information, engineers and technicians can evaluate system performance and detect overload conditions while the motor is operational, without the use of any mechanical sensing devices such as tachometers, strain gauges or other intrusive sensors. The combined technologies of the Fluke 430 series and Veros further enhance industry’s ability to identify energy waste and maintain critical machinery.
