Efficient power management
is critical

Facilities Management (Power)




Switchboard - Power quality

cleanliness of the power can be determined through load study to obtain the power quality condition of the facility. Common key concerns are dips, swells, voltage fluctuations, harmonics and transients.

The Fluke 1777 Class A Power Quality Analyzer helps you easily analyze the power quality events and perform troubleshooting. It also support energy study to plan for increased power capacity needs for expansion.


Switchboard - Electrical problem

Electrical problems can be found in the circuit breaker area which can disturb the power that is being distributed to the server. While scanning the components in the power distribution units such as the circuit breaker panel, look at the lugs and terminals for signs of loose contacts and disconnect that can lead to downtime.


Facilities Management (Power)




Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) System

There are a couple of components that provide back-up function when utility power supply is down. These back-up power are enabled by batteries, static transfer switch, inverters and grounding.


UPS - Battery

There is no need to disconnect or discharge the backup battery in order to conduct a battery maintenance. The Fluke BT521 Battery Analyzer can measure battery health condition via capturing key parameters such as voltage, internal resistance and temperature of each cell in accordance to IEEE1188 standards.


UPS - Static Transfer Switch

Multiple types of automatic power switches are available to deliver seamless power between power feeds in the downstream of the UPS system. The transfer time can be as fast as 4ms.

Use a field Fluke ScopeMeter for regular preventive maintenance routine to determine the state of the switches– accurately test and measure transfer time on-site.


UPS - Grounding System

Poor grounding not only increases the risk of equipment failure, but it is also dangerous. The fault current needs a safe path to ground. The IEEE have recommended a ground resistance of less than 5 ohms for grounding and bonding.

The Fluke 1625-2 supports grounding testing within the facility using the innovative stakeless method.


Facilities Management (Power)




Generators

It is critical to regularly test and maintain backup generators to reduce failure. There are a couple of inspections to eliminate potential failure.

•      Measure any fluid leaks with the Fluke Thermal Imager to quickly spot leak locations.
•      At larger facilities with multiple generators and paralleling switchgear, ensure generators run in-sync (same rpm and in-phase with each other) to avoid downtime. Fluke 190 Series-III ScopeMeter presents the electrical waveform for user to picture the actual performances and ensure it is in phase.

A well-maintained HVAC system is
required to support the cooling load

Facilities Management (Cooling)




Chiller and Cooling Tower

The running flow of water within the heat exchange cycle can face certain issues during process. A failed fan in the cooling tower places strain in the heat exchange process. The temperature of the water in the pipelines can display insulation problem. These problems can be identified with a thermal imager such as the Fluke TiS75+ Thermal Imager.


Motor and Drive

The motor plays an important role in driving both the pump and cooling fan for the HVAC systems. The variable speed drive (VSD) is commonly seen controlling the speed of the motor to adjust to the load requirement.

These mechanical systems are subjected to mechanical failures. Capture the early signs of problem with the Fluke 810 Vibration Tester. It diagnoses the mechanical problems and provides the answers to mechanical issues such as bearing, misalignment etc.

Ensure humidity levels
and operating temperatures

IT/Server Room




Server Rack

Thermal imager is useful for monitoring power strips, power supplies built into the racks as well as electrical connections and power strips. Look for overheating due to loose connections and overload.

A thermal scan can prevent potential equipment failure during daily inspection without stopping operations. Use the Fluke TiS75+ Thermal Imager to pick up these problems with ease.


Temperature and Humidity

The cooling load in the server room is critical to maintain an ideal environment temperature not exceeding 22 °C to prevent server shut down.

Aside from the temperature, a humid environment can lead to corrosion on electronic equipment. Quickly and conveniently take accurate humidity and temperature readings with the Fluke 971 Temperature Humidity Meter to verify environment conditions.


Airflow

An important consideration in the design of Data Center is the direction of airflow to reduce the amount of heat generated by concentrated equipment in the server room. Test and verify cooling effectiveness with the Fluke 922 Airflow Meter.

Besides determining airflow, Fluke 922 can be used to determine positive pressure and air velocity of HVAC systems. Measure differential and static pressure, velocity and airflow to identify clogged air filters and evaluate efficiency of air handlers and compressors.


Air Particle Sizes

IT facilities typically use the ISO 14644-1 standard to determine for the level of clean air that flows within the IT or Server room. Common contaminants such as electrostatic dust can affect servers, resulting in data loss and resets.

The Fluke 985 Portable Particle Counter assess air quality easily and accurately by providing an the particle size counts within the area.
