Fluke Expands Partnership with Livingston
Livingston has announced that new territories have been added to the company’s collaboration with Fluke. This will see rental support in the UK and Ireland complementing the support services Livingston already offers Fluke across Germany and Benelux. It will cover Fluke entire industrial portfolio, including power analysis, vibration testing and thermal imaging equipment.Among the Fluke industrial products available from Livingston are:
•Fluke’s 810 vibration tester, with tri-axial accelerometer technology, for rapid identification of mechanical problems, such as imbalance, looseness, misalignment and bearing failures. With a 4 channel, 24 bit analogue-to-digital converter, it has a 2 Hz to 20 kHz bandwidth and a 100 dB signal to noise ratio. Offered in a compact 18.56 cm x 7.00 cm x 26.72 cm form factor, it weighs just 1.9 k. The 810 has an operating temperature of 0 °C to 50 °C, a 200 rpm to 12000 rpm machine rotational speed range and a 2 GByte memory capacity.
•Fluke’s 1735 power logger, for monitoring power demands over long periods of time to carry out analysis for improving power efficiency. With a 10.24 kHz sample rate, it is capable of recording power and associated parameters continuously for up to 45 days. Packaged in a 240 mm x 180 mm x 110 mm enclosure, with a weight of 1.7 kg, it has a 320 x 240 pixel resolution 1/4 VGA colour transmissive display, a 4 MByte Flash memory and a 0 °C to +40 °C operational temperature range.
•Fluke’s 435 logging power quality analyser for measuring dips, swells, interruptions and transients, has 4 voltage and current channels with a maximum sampling speed of 200 kSamples/s on each channel simultaneously. It has a ±6000 V transient capture measurement range, a 1000 Vrms (6 kV peak) maximum voltage and is fully compliant with the IEC 61000-4-30 Class A standard.
With regard to the new deal, Livingston’s CEO, Mel Porter, stated “Fluke is one of the world’s most recognised test equipment brands. All of us at Livingston are very pleased to see the relationship we have built with Fluke progress further to include both the UK and Irish markets.” “This deal will allow potential Fluke customers to fully realise the benefits of equipment rental - giving them the ability to easily upgrade to models supporting newer technologies, as well as having rapid access to more items of equipment if there is a sudden surge in test activity. It also means the various operational costs that normally have to be factored in, such as insurance, calibration, maintenance, down time cover, etc, can be negated, as they are already taken care of.
