Explorer 805 software from Fox River Systems complements Fluke 805 and Fluke 805FC Vibration Meters to enable vibration screening of small-to-large-scale collections of rotating equipment assets.
Explorer 805 solves the 4 most challenging issues facing an organization that is starting up of a vibration screening program for rotating equipment assets that employs the Fluke 805. Explorer 805 provides the means to:
- Define and manage the machine measurement definitions for in-scope equipment,
- Overcome the challenges associated with management of machine assets at multiple sites or where there a larger number of assets,
- Discover which equipment assets have problems after measurements have been made, and
- Create actionable, insightful reports
Explorer 805 by Fox River Systems is a Windows PC software application that works in conjunction with Fluke 805 and Fluke 805FC Vibration Meters to address these challenges head on. The application was designed to meet the needs of service providers and in-house maintenance organizations alike with software features that enable: rapid definition of machines and measurements, effortless visibility to "bad actor" machines, support for measurement routes and for one or more Fluke meters, and simplified creation of professional quality reports.
PROFESSIONAL EDITION SOFTWARE
The Professional Edition provides capabilities needed to support service providers and organizations with vibration screening programs that span multiple sites or where there are more than 25(*) machines that measurements need to be made on. Explorer 805 Professional Edition solves the biggest of the challenges facing organizations in this situation:
Measurement Data Protection: Your vibration screening program is as good as the integrity of the historical measurement data you maintain. Explorer 805 Professional Edition greatly reduces the risk of data loss and loss of technician time that occurs with trying to recover from the physical loss of your Fluke 805 or loss of data on your Fluke 805. The Professional Edition supports Master Databases which are stored on your PC rather than on the Fluke 805 to reduce susceptibility to data loss. Backup and recovery of Master Databases can be done with your existing PC backup/recovery solutions. Furthermore, Master Databases can be used to organize vibration measurement data associated with multiple sites (or service provider customers), multiple technicians, multiple Fluke 805 meters, and a virtually unlimited number of machine assets. Fluke meters that experience data loss or are physically lost or stolen and then replaced will only lose data that wasn't yet saved to a Master Database.
Productivity & Usability Impact: The technician's ease and speed of use of a Fluke 805 meter corresponds to the number of machines and measurement locations that are stored on your Fluke 805 meter at any given time. This is because saving a measurement involves scrolling through the list of machine assets stored on the Fluke 805 meter to find the correct machine and then correct measurement location to save a measurement to. With the Explorer 805 Professional Edition, you assign routes to each of your Fluke 805 meters that strike a balance between ease and speed of use of the Fluke 805 meter with the number of machines to include in a route.
Overcoming Limits of the Meter: The Fluke 805 Vibration Meter stores up to 2500 records before old measurement data is written over. A group of 100 machines with 4 measurement locations on each consumes 500 records leaving room to collect 4 measurements on each machine-location before old measurement data gets written over. With the Explorer 805 Professional Edition, you're freed from these limitations that otherwise could impact the scope of your vibration screening program. it's now practical to make vibration screening measurements on thousands of machines in your vibration screening program using 1 or more Fluke 805 meters.
Service Provider Oriented: The needs of service providers often push the limits of testing tools that weren't designed with service providers in mind. Explorer 805 Professional Edition extends the base capabilities of the Fluke 805 meter and measurement database in ways that satisfy requirements that are unique to service providers such as: ability to assign a route to a technician's Fluke 805 meter, support for use of multiple Fluke 805 meters, ability to segregate measurements from each customer or site into separate Master Databases, and ability to perform customer or site specific reporting to make your vibration screening service actionable.
