Fluke Process Instruments, a global provider of infrared imaging and thermal profiling solutions for industrial applications, recently released its first fixed acoustic imaging solution, the SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager.

The SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager enables users to detect, locate and visualize air and gas leaks or changes in sound signatures across their process and equipment in real-time before they become costly problems.

By using an array of sophisticated sound sensors and powerful SoundMap™ technology, the SV600 translates the sounds that it hears into a visual representation so you can quickly locate and quantify problem areas.

The SV600 easily integrates with factory systems and can serve as an early warning system that can quickly detect changes across compressors, pumps, pipes, conveyors or across product inspection and quality control processes, and much more with user-defined alarms.

Remote evaluation options, meanwhile, help to minimize operator intervention, even in parts of the facility that are hard to reach.

“With automated acoustic imaging that the SV600 brings, maintenance teams can visualize leaks or sound signature changes to factory equipment or assets, and prevent unscheduled maintenance and possible costly downtime, and at the same time improve factory safety by minimizing operator intervention,” says Herman Warnshuis, president, Fluke Process Instruments. “We’re excited to bring this new technology to customers across the globe and cannot wait to see how they utilize the technology to detect, locate and visualize sound signature changes or leaks in their process.”

The SV600 can also be used a payload for Boston Dynamics’ agile mobile robot Spot®. Spot takes inspection to the next level. Designed to go where other robots can’t go and to perform a broad number of tasks, Spot traverses large facilities, or unstructured terrain to automate industrial inspections, monitor remote or difficult to access environments and provide situational awareness in remote settings.

With the SV600 payload Spot can be reconfigured to automate air and gas leak detection, increase maintenance team efficiency, greatly reduce safety risks and reduce energy costs.

ADVANCED Motion Controls Takes Servo Drives to New Heights (and Depths) with FlexPro Extended Environment Product Line

Advanced Motion Controls is proud to announce the addition of six new CANopen servo drives with Extended Environment capabilities to their FlexPro line. These new drives join AMC’s existing EtherCAT Extended Environment FlexPro drives, making the FlexPro line the go-to solution for motion control applications in harsh environments.

Many motion control applications take place in conditions that are less than ideal, such as extreme temperatures, high and low pressures, shocks and vibrations, and contamination. Electronics, including servo drives, can malfunction or sustain permanent damage in these conditions.
