Fluke 3562 Screening Vibration Sensor System

Dec. 1, 2021
Fluke's vibration sensor system provides vibration monitoring for a vast array of machines and machine types, not just the most critical few.

A complete solution empowering maintenance teams with reliable screening data at their fingertips, the 3562 Screening Vibration Sensor system is a solution consisting of hardware, software, and service—providing vibration monitoring for a vast array of machines and machine types, not just the most critical few.


This advanced sensor, which features battery-free operation and long-range radio sensor-to-gateway connection, combines with cloud-based software and notifications, to make the system the ideal always-on vibration screening solution for semi-critical and important machines.


Features include ultra-penetrating sub-GHz radio communication protocol allowing up to 1,000 Fluke 3562 sensors to communicate with a single gateway up to 800 ft away, while the gateway's triple-network capability helps extend always-on monitoring broadly across your plant. The connected Thermoelectric (TEG) harvester and/or Photovoltaic (PV) harvester generates power for the sensor to deliver constant vibration tracking, eliminating the need for batteries throughout the sensors' life, so maintenance teams can “set it and forget it,” and focus on other tasks.


Using real-time knowledge of asset health from the LIVE-Asset Portal software application, the system provides early warning of incipient failures via alarms and alert notifications, ensuring that maintenance teams are informed when any given machine requires closer inspection.


Combined with remote onboarding and vibration training services, the Fluke 3562 can be implemented seamlessly into existing plant operations while yielding the efficiency benefits promised by condition monitoring and practical leverage of the IIoT.

  • Measurements are taken at user-defined intervals across the following parameters:
    • Overall vibration levels (velocity) for each axis (horizontal, vertical, axial)
    • Fundamental operating frequencies for each axis, ranging from 6 to 1,000 Hz
    • Magnitudes of the nine highest FFT peaks
    • Machine surface temperature
    • Ambient temperature and humidity
    • Sensor-stored power level
  • Batteryless operation: The 3562 vibration sensors generate power from a machine and its environment through a Thermoelectric (TEG) harvester or Photovoltaic (PV) harvester rather than batteries, to deliver constant vibration monitoring.
  • Triple network: With triple network connection capabilities—Wi-Fi, LTE, and Ethernet—the Fluke 3562 is adaptable for any facility.
  • Scalable: Long-range sensor-to-gateway communication allows this system to connect up to 1,000 sensors.
  • Intrinsically safe: The Fluke 3562 is a Class 1, Division 2 designated vibration sensor
  • Dashboard: Displays the overall condition of assets from associated devices with summary-level data shown by location.
  • Visualized measurements: Monitor assets at a glance by visualizing overall vibration and temperature.
  • Vibration trending graphs: Graphing that supports user’s analysis, with access to measured parameters including trend charts and FFT charts showing the nine highest peak FFT results.
  • Thresholds and event notifications: Users can set custom-threshold alarms on overall vibration levels. Warning notifications are received via email and/or through the Live-Asset Portal.
  • Overview of asset event history and associated devices: Users can add and edit asset information and review the history of monitored changes and associate device information in the Live-Asset Portal.
