How to Track Asset Health Using eMaint and Fluke Connect Sensors

You’ve seen toy building blocks, spread across the floor, ready to be assembled to create something unique and interesting. As each piece connects on top of another, an organized structure emerges.

That’s one way to envision what’s possible when you integrate Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring (FCCM) data with eMaint Computer Maintenance Management System (CMMS) software. You get a real-time view and a comprehensive picture of maintenance activity and asset health all in one place.

Start layering the connections

Begin with eMaint CMMS software, which enables you to store asset data in one place. Upload existing data from multiple sources or stream it wirelessly from a remote monitoring sensor. Once it is input into eMaint CMMS, the software will help you align, organize, and categorize the information.

After culling and analyzing the data, create a baseline with the asset maintenance history. Use it to:

  • Identify declining equipment performance trends
  • Uncover root causes
  • Anticipate future asset behaviors
  • Take corrective actions before assets fail

Expand knowledge base with continuous remote data

Wirelessly stream asset performance data to eMaint CMMS software via the Fluke Connect Cloud from Fluke 3561 FC Vibration Sensors or the Fluke 3540 FC Three-Phase Power Monitor. Program eMaint CMMS to trigger an alarm if sensors detect a change in asset condition, such as an increase in vibration or surface area temperature. The alarm will notify a team member via their mobile device with a work order providing instructions on what the next steps should be.

The real-time information enables key personnel to plan and make informed data-driven decisions. Additionally, this data captures intermittent equipment issues that prove difficult to catch using handheld tools during regular preventive maintenance routes.

Add sensors to help increase worker safety

Remote condition monitoring sensors also add a layer of safety. Once the sensors are placed, maintenance and reliability team members can view the cloud-based data from a distance using a smart device and avoid having to enter dangerous restricted areas.

A comprehensive picture of your asset health

By integrating FCCM with eMaint CMMS software, organizations gain a more complete picture of maintenance activity and asset health, and the opportunity to improve your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). By pairing our flexible eMaint CMMS software with scalable Fluke FCCM solutions, companies are well on their way to connected reliability.
