Fluke 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor is honored in Processing’s 2017 Breakthrough Product of the Year Awards

Everett, Wash., Dec. 11, 2017

The Fluke® 3550 FC Thermal Sensor has taken top honors in Processing’s 2017 Breakthrough Product of the Year Awards. The awards recognize product, technology, and service solutions that made significant contributions in the process industries within the last year and that are expected to have impact for years to come.

This is the first honor for the Fluke 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor, which was launched in August 2017, and the 28th for the underlying Fluke Connect® system — the company’s full-feature reliability platform that permits Fluke tool and sensor users to receive, store, analyze, and report electronic measurement data from more than 40 Fluke Connect wireless test tools and sensors.

Visually inspect thermal patterns on multiple assets
The Fluke 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor is the first thermal imaging condition monitoring sensor to visualize thermal patterns on multiple assets. Alarms can be set to notify the user when the center-point temperature exceeds preset parameters. The sensor communicates directly with the Fluke Connect cloud for continuous streaming of thermal images, enabling managers to detect problems by visually inspecting sequential thermal images remotely.

The compact sensor can be placed in areas that are dangerous or difficult to reach, reducing the risk to technicians. Images and measurements can be viewed on smart devices or computers allowing anytime access to key data to conduct smarter evaluations.

The sensor can operate in high-performance mode to capture the most accurate images over an 11- to 14-hour period or in energy-saving mode to capture sequential images for up to three days. The ac power adapter can also be used for long-term continuous monitoring. Equipment data can be viewed in multiple graphs, including center-point temperature data, for more complete evaluations of asset health.

Fluke Sensors provide comprehensive picture of asset health.
The Fluke 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor is a part of the Fluke Sensor family within the www.fluke.com.
