Fluke 805 FC - Creating and Adding to Setups

Adding to Setups are 2nd level identifications for specific locations on motors or for specific bearings as an example. Once created, since there is no data tied to the 2nd level IDs, they will not show up in memory. If you created second level ID within a Setup and captured a vibration measurement, when you hit 'Save' you should be able to navigate and save your results to the secondary levels. Once data is associated with a 2nd level ID it will show up in the memory.

Here is an example of the setup process:

STEP 1 –SETUP : Press the grey “Setup” button

1. Use the arrows to select “Create NEW setup”, Press “Enter”.

2. Use arrows to scroll through predefined machine categories. Select “Horiz Centrif –Single Suction” pump (for both pump & motor)
