The tool guides the user through a step-by-step set-up process. All that the user has to do is set-up, measure and diagnose. A four-level severity scale compares the machine to acceptable machine tolerances and recommends specific repairs.
The tool provides easy-to-understand results that do not need extensive alignment knowledge. An all-in-one display shows both the coupling results and any feet corrections (vertical and horizontal) in real-world terms, making it easy to take corrective action.
The Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment tool includes:
• a single laser measurement technology, said to reduce errors from backlash, and to result in more accurate data;
• a compass measurement mode that results in reliable and repeatable measurements using an electronic inclinometer;
• a dynamic machine tolerance check that evaluates alignment adjustments continuously so that the user knows when the machine is within an acceptable range; and
• an “extend” mode that offers unlimited measurement ranges to handle gross misalignments.
