Fluke Corp. has expanded the capabilities of its Condition Monitoring system to include thermal monitoring with the addition of the new Fluke® 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor. Fluke officials said maintenance managers can now collect a more comprehensive variety of key-indicator data — thermal imaging, voltage, current, temperature, and power — on critical equipment to build a real-time picture of an asset’s condition. With the right mix of data all in one place, managers can implement planned maintenance and decrease the frequency of preventive rounds.

Fluke Condition Monitoring is a cloud-based software platform in combination with electrical, temperature, and power quality monitoring sensors to support condition-based maintenance programs. The software aggregates data pooling measurements from Fluke wireless tools with real-time condition monitoring data and historical records for a complete picture of asset health.

Officials also said Fluke Condition Monitoring gives maintenance teams a practical, scalable system that allows them to visualize live readings. This accelerates issue detection, analysis, and resolution to optimize the lifespan of critical equipment without invasive retrofits or specialized training. Alarms can be set to notify technicians via their mobile phones when specific measurement thresholds have been hit, allowing teams to take immediate action to resolve issues.
