Fluke imager isolates sounds of concern in conveyors

Dec. 12, 2023
The ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager lets users pinpoint anomalies in active, noisy work areas.

Fluke ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager Fluke simplifies the task of maintaining conveyor belt systems with this hand-held sensor, which filters out industrial noise and detects anomalies in the sounds produced by conveyor belt components in use, pinpointing the location of the sound on screenshots the user takes of the equipment. Users can use advanced image analysis and reporting, as well as save detailed visual records of their conveyor systems.

What’s new? The Fluke ii910 Precision Acoustic Imagers with MecQ Mode. MecQ goes beyond traditional ultrasonic tools’ single-frequency limitations by employing sub-modes, with predefined and customizable frequency bands that let users filter and track sounds to determine the exact location of potential problems. The functionality is available now on all new sensors and will be added through a free firmware upgrade.

Benefits Safe, efficient diagnosis of damaged equipment. Using Fluke’s ii910, maintenance personnel can isolate potential problem areas and head off equipment failure and unexpected downtime. Because it uses contactless scanning, the scanner allows technicians to quickly investigate hard-to-reach areas without climbing or taking other risks to access the location. By isolating problems early, maintenance teams can order necessary parts in a timely manner. The ii910 can be used in indoor and outdoor settings.
