Product overview: Fluke 805 Vibration Meter

The Reliable, Repeatable, Accurate Way to Check Bearings and Overall Vibration

Make go or no-go maintenance decisions with confidence. The Fluke 805 Vibration Meter is the most reliable vibration screening device available for frontline mechanical troubleshooting teams that need repeatable, severity-scaled readings of overall vibration and bearing condition.

What Makes the 805 the Best Choice?

  • A meter – not a pen – that measures overall vibration as well as specific variables like bearing condition and temperature, to provide a more complete picture
  • A combination vibration and force sensor tip that compensates for user variance (force or angle) yielding accurate, repeatable readings
  • A four-level severity scale and onboard processor calculate bearing condition and overall vibration using easy-to-understand textual alerts (Good, Satisfactory, Unsatisfactory, Unacceptable)
  • Sensor sensitivity can read a wide range of frequencies (10 to 1,000 Hz and 4,000 to 20,000 Hz) covering most machine and component types
  • Straight-forward user interface that minimizes the user inputs to RPM range and equipment type

Other useful features:

  • Measures overall vibration (10 Hz to 1,000 Hz) for acceleration, velocity, and displacement units of measurement for a wide variety of machines
  • Provides Crest Factor+ technology for reliable bearing assessment using direct sensor tip measurements between 4,000 Hz and 20,000 Hz
  • Compares vibration levels with ISO-10816 severity scales
  • Allows you to view trending in Microsoft® Excel using pre-built templates
  • Features colored lighting system (green, red) and on-screen comments to indicate how much pressure needs to be applied to take measurements
  • Measures temperature with Spot IR Sensor to increase diagnostic capabilities
  • Holds and saves up to 3,500 measurements in on-board memory
  • Provides external accelerometer support for hard to reach locations
  • Allows you to export data via USB
  • Provides audio output for listening to bearing tones directly
  • Features built-in flashlight for viewing measurement locations in dark areas
  • Provides large high-resolution display for easy navigation and viewing

Reviews: Fluke 805 Vibration Meter

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Information About Vibration Meter Fluke-805 Could you tell me if the Fluke-805 meter's date/time is meant to reset everytime you power down the device off and power it back on?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Information about Vibration meter Fluke-805 Could you tell me if the vibration meter include the octava analysis programa (band frequency) for vibration aplication?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just a vibration pen This tool in reality is so much less than what it's advertised as.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Data entry is a real pain. To be able to graph trends on a machine, you must give the machine a name, and all of the read points must also have their own name for that machine. I have hundreds of these to do, and it is incredibly difficult to enter on this meter. Fluke does not have any support software to interface computer entry. The meter makes quality reads, but the software has locked up 4 times in two days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery life ruins it! When the 805 works it's great but the battery life is beyond abysmal, lithium, NiCd, NiMH they all get gobbled by the meter after 6 or so measurements! In fact brand new batteries get put in the same day and even though the meter is fully off they are down to 2 bars on the next power up! Could I possibly have a bad unit, I hope so because if this is the usual battery life the meter is about useless!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Missing external sensor information Great product, though it does not provide elementary information on what type of external sensors it supports.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good technically, average firmware, poor software support Technically it is excellent equipment - useful, accurate, providing sufficient information. The firmware, however, still needs some improvements. First of all, I find it at least annoying to attach a type to the whole 1st level ID. Quite often you would like to check whole production lines, or complicated machines with multiple motor types. The current design makes such measures at least annoying. I also find it annoying, that whenever you modify the name / type of the first level ID, all data within it is lost. Fluke may have put more effort here. Also when you wish to delete a second level ID, you cannot. You can only delete the whole group. Fluke missed that option too. Finally there could be some basic software to edit all settings and the database from PC level. It is often annoying to input the whole database through the device. To sum up, technically it is a good device, but the interface is poor.
