  • See more, fix faster! Thus, you can isolate problems faster. Get a better understanding of the situation and make decisions sooner.
  • Some panel covers can way 50 pounds or more which may require two people and installing PPE more than once
  • Or unplanned shutdowns

    1. 1. Learn how wirelesstest tools can increaseproductivity, safety andadd convenience 1
    2. 2. Conventional troubleshootingand testing today • Typically one meter, one reading at a time. – Hard to see multiple events, multiple phase measurements • Separation issues between measurement points and/or controls will require at least two people and maybe more equipment – Ladders, tight spaces, separated controls • Safety, generally requires PPE be used multiple times for some testing. – May be complicated to accomplish in hazardous areas, like rotating machinery – Arc Flash hazards always a concern Fluke wireless tools 2
    3. 3. Troubleshooting methodologypre wireless One meter, one reading – Only spot measurements possible – Cause and effect hard to see – No 3 phase capability – May not be possible due to a hazardous environment – May not see intermittent occurrences – Cant see changes over time without specialized expensive tools Fluke wireless tools 3
    4. 4. Troubleshooting methodologypre wireless Separation between measurement and control or two measurement points requires two people, more equipment, maybe radios – Reduced productivity – More time consuming/more costly – Not easy to be in two places at once – Improvised solutions—May compromise safety – May miss system interactions without specialized expensive tools Fluke wireless tools 4
    5. 5. Troubleshooting methodologypre wireless Safety – Arc Flash is always a concern. Must work directly in front of live open panels – May be required to put on and remove PPE multiple times during testing/troubleshooting – May not be able to access hazardous areas or areas containing moving machinery and rotating equipment Fluke wireless tools 5
    6. 6. Troubleshooting methodologypre wireless Multiple readings may require multiple workers, more tools – More expensive-both in manpower and equipment – Reduced productivity – Cant see changes over time without specialized expensive tools – No ability to easily see cause and effect or multiphase readings simultaneously Fluke wireless tools 6
    7. 7. A wireless test tool system is: A group of tools that can display, record, communicate multiple measurements from a distance to a meter or a pc which will: – Increase Productivity – Maximize Safety – Improve Convenience Fluke wireless tools 7
    8. 8. Benefits of wireless test tools Increase your productivity – Isolate problems faster by taking multiple measurements at the same time, and viewing them all at the same place – Spend less time waiting for the measurements you need by logging while you work elsewhere – Minimize writing measurements down log, time-stamp and document Fluke wireless tools 8
    9. 9. Wireless tools offer increased productivity • Allow you to see interactions in a system, circuit or machine • Allow you look for cause-effect, start-stop, or input-output, when switching loads on and off With wireless tools, you can: – Monitor multiple parameters at the same time, on one screen. – See multiple measurements at the same time which enables you to see interactions of multiple measurement points in a machine. Thus, you can isolate problems faster. Saving time, saves money.Fluke wireless tools 9
    10. 10. Wireless tools offer increasedproductivity — log data over time • Troubleshoot intermittent problems in the system or machine. • Use logging while you work elsewhere. • Document and review results. With wireless tools: – You don’t need to wait for measurements; logging data lets you see what happened during the day, shift or week. – Logging and time-stamping readings eliminates the chore of recording by hand. – Logging allows the modules to work for you. Fluke wireless tools 10
    11. 11. Logging data over time allows you to: • Store logged readings for viewing and analysis on a computer. • Find elusive intermittent conditions. • Monitor processes and review results in a diagnostic environment. • Solve intermittent or power issues. Fluke wireless tools 11

    25. 25. share in the benefits of a wirelesssolution Conventional Methods – One measurement at a time • May need to be in two places or more at once – Reduced productivity – Manual documentation – Multiple measurements may require an expensive multiphase analyzer or another worker – May not be present when interruption occurs Wireless Technology – Increased productivity and reduced costs – Multiple readings make for faster analysis with quicker decisions – Increased Safety • No need to work in front of live open panels • No need to work around moving machinery – Recording over time allows you to monitor how the circuit load varies over the day or the shift – Wireless technology removes issues with measurement point separation Fluke wireless tools 25
    26. 26. Review: Benefits of Wireless TestTools • Increase your productivity — Isolate problems faster by taking multiple measurements at the same time, viewing them all at the same place, resulting in reduced downtime and costs. • Maximize your safety — Make measurements safely at a distance reducing the potential for Arc Flash incidents, injury from moving items and high temperatures. • Reduce travel time and moving around — resolves separation issues, unusual measurement situations or tight space measurements.
