Product overview: Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter

The reliable, repeatable, accurate way to check bearings and machine health

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

Manage and monitor workflow for better maintenance results

Using the Fluke Connect Mobile App it’s now easier than ever to manage your vibration screening workflow. Integrated machine profile functionality allows you to setup machine profiles using the app and then push them directly to your 805 FC Vibration Meter. Users can then use the list of machine profiles to create work orders, and develop route based maintenance schedules which can be dynamically sent to technicians in field, helping to ensure the proper focus on critical assets. Once a machine is tested, the 805 FC communicates the results directly to the app and associates them with the proper profile and route. This data can easily be shared between teams, so you can make better maintenance decisions.

Is there a way to increase the backlight brightness. Our new unit is very dim and I can only find in setup setting for backlight timeout.

Asked by: Murfey
No, there is not a way to increase the backlight brightness on the Fluke 805 FC Vibration Meter.

I have a Fluke 805 FC vibration meter. I have the bluetooth on the meter turned on. i see the meter on my phone's bluetooth page "Fluke 805FC" It will not pair. What do i need to do to get it to pair? Where is it in the manual?

Asked by: JeffSapp
It doesn't pair manually. What I've tried is by connecting it with the Fluke Connect App and it establishes a connection then.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great item but poor setup This was purchased about six months ago to use in a papermill for pumps and motors in our reliability program. The major complaint is the same as what others have found. 1. The route setup is a major pain, everything has to be manually created with just the buttons on the unit. There is no way to set up the route and download to the unit. 2. Changing the batteries cause you to lose all stored data and has several times deleted all the routes that were painstakingly created. This would be a much more user-friendly tool if these items could be fixed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from battery not supporting We bought this instrument 2 month ago but when we start, it start normally first and then we off the meter and restart again then meter shows the sign of empty battery and shut down by self.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tool but some drawbacks. We bought the Fluke 805FC to monitor and trend rotating equipment (pumps, fans, etc) in our facility. The device does a great job of taking consistent measurements and providing trend-able, actionable information in a user friendly package. We use a host of Fluke tools and this one is just as reliable as the others. It is also very easy to use and training my technicians on how to operate it was very easy. The software package on this device leaves alot to be desired. You have to set up all of your equipment in the device itself instead of in the Fluke Connect app or in a spreadsheet which is quite cumbersome if you have multiple assets. You cannot set up assets with multiple machine configurations in the same setup (ie, motor to gearbox to compressor.) If you remove the batteries, you lose all saved data including the setups and you will have to do all of this over again. Trending in the app is pretty good but could be better. You also cannot edit a setup so if you make a mistake, you will need to delete the entire setup and start over again. Not ideal. If Fluke could work out some of these bugs and make this more setup friendly, I believe they could sell alot more of these. I hope there are updates in the future to rectify some of these issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful tool for industrial manufacturing I got this vibration meter to use at work in a manufacturing facility. We use it to measure the vibration of large fan motors and grinding motors. We input readings to our own spreadsheet and chart to track over time. When bearings get bad the vibration increases and we know it is time to get replacements in house before they fail. Works good, consistent readings, and reading can be saved in the on-board memory with different settings for reading the different types of tooling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Downtime Prevention in the Palm of Your Hand We purchased the 805 FC as part of our preventive maintenance improvement initiative. Unplanned downtime due to bearing and motor failures had become an increasing problem within our growing organization. The 805 FC has allowed us to establish baseline vibration readings on all of our systems. The wireless connection to the phone application makes data capture and tracking very simple an efficient. This data will be invaluable in forecasting and preventing unplanned downtime in production.
