According to Fluke, maintenance technicians make better, faster decisions when they have field access to maintenance records and when they can review measurements in real time with team members and supervisors who may be in different locations.
As a result, the company has introduced Fluke Connect, a system that allows maintenance technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from Fluke test tools to their smart phone for secure storage on the cloud, thus enabling access by any team member in the field, wherever they are. At the same time the safety of technicians working with energised equipment is increased.
The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. More than twenty Fluke tools connect wirelessly with the Connect app, including digital multimeters, thermal imagers, insulation testers, process meters, and specific voltage, current and temperature meters.
Technicians can AutoRecord measurements and infrared images to Fluke Cloud storage from wherever they are working, without writing anything down. Everyone on the team with a smart phone and the app can see the data.
Team collaboration is made easy with ShareLive video calls, whereby technicians can share measurements with other team members in real time, and get approvals for repairs or get questions answered without leaving the field.
Other features of the app include EquipmentLog history and TrendIt.
