In today's industrial plants and facilities, many of the machines, tools, robotics and product handling all operate with compressed air, gas and vacuum systems, but detecting leaks (wasted energy) can be hard, especially in inaccessible locations.

The shift to green energy is constantly in the news & particularly around electric vehicles, with predictions that by 2020 there will be around 220,000 charging stations in Western & Northern Europe, all of which will need testing.
With up to 30% of compressor output lost through leaks, it can cost any production facility time and money in wasted electricity and maintenance resources. However, using the ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager from Fluke identifies problems easily.
Testo core strength for years has been supporting HVAC/R technicians, as their work is of the most varied kind, under the toughest conditions and placing the strictest demands on the equipment and this is where the Testo range comes to the forefront.

Data loggers used to monitor sensitive goods in storage or transit need to comply with EN 12830, so choosing the correct logger is essential. Testo loggers provide the complete solution, continuously, reliably and with unobtrusive measurement.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a way of powering a device over a twisted pair Ethernet cable without the need for a power source at the device end, however if installation doesn't go as planned then troubleshooting can be complex.
There are three key steps for successful implementation of Power over Ethernet (PoE) which are, equipment selection, cable certification along with installation and troubleshooting.
Two-pole voltage testers weakest point is the cable as it is repeatedly bent, twisted, wrapped and put under constant strain, so Fluke's T110, T130, T150 now perform 3x better in cable bending tests
The main task of electrical inspections with a thermal imager is to find anomalies such as defective electrical connections or overload on wires, components and switchboards. Carrying out regular inspections can help reduce failure rate by around 80%

Typically buildings represent about 40% of the total energy consumption and costs, so the use of an energy monitor and logger is essential to manage and understand the issues, but for successful energy monitoring there are ten key steps to follow:
