Fluke 438-II Power Quality and Motor Analyzer

Fluke motor diagnostics tool incorporates Veros technology

Fluke and Veros Systems collaborate on asset performance and condition monitoring technologies to improve 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 a method developed by Veros to calculate motor output torque, speed, horsepower and efficiency. Using this information, it is possible to 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.

With the Veros’s and Fluke combined technologies, the Fluke 430 series is able, according to the manufacturer, to identify energy waste and maintain critical machinery.

Veros Systems is specialized since 2001 in developing software and algorithms that provide insight into the health of electric motors and their driven loads.
