Fluke showcases new tools for energy efficiency and safety at Light + Building

02 November, 2022

At this year’s Light + Building exhibition, held at Messe Frankfurt, Fluke revealed a selection of new-to-market and rugged, handheld tools and approaches for energy efficiency, enhancing the adoption of cleantech technology and improving safety. At the event, Fluke showcased its comprehensive range of solutions across thermal and acoustic imaging, power quality and condition monitoring, and wiring system performance that enable civil engineers, installation professionals, electricians and facility managers to safely detect and isolate faults

Andreas Schuler, electrical sales manager Germany at Fluke says: “Fluke is one of the leading global technology providers headquartered in Europe that specialises in helping small to medium sized businesses through to large bluechip organisations to eliminate wasteful practices by becoming more energy efficient and safe. Fluke’s integrated solutions save customers time and money by combining industry-specific engineering with new technology to improve electrical and industrial installation, maintenance and service, precision measurement and quality control processes across many industries.” Fluke’s stand also showcased products from Beha-Amprobe, the provider of quality testing tools for electricians and HVAC technicians working in residential, industrial and commercial environments, located in Germany. The company was acquired by Fluke Corporation in 2003.

Achieving energy efficiency

The company’s participation at Light + Building came at a time of growing international and European initiatives to improve energy efficiency in buildings, which has a key role to play in achieving the European Green Deal’s ambitious goal of carbon-neutrality by 2050. Collectively, buildings are responsible for 40% of the European Union’s energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions, which mainly stem from construction, usage, renovation, and demolition, according to the European Commission. HVAC systems alone account for 38% of a building’s energy consumption, equivalent to 12% of final energy usage.

Schuler states: “Building and facility managers can struggle to accurately identify and isolate energy loss and measure efficiency improvements. However, Fluke’s easy-to-use tools for detection are designed to quickly and accurately identify faults so energy can be recovered and preserved for future use. In addition to this, our professional online tools and software solutions help companies to quantify the cost of leaks and other defects, prioritise them for repair and demonstrate return on investment.

“We are committed to improving the building, service and maintenance industries with our innovative product offering that aligns with European initiatives for sustainable infrastructure. We will continue to innovate and address the emerging needs of customers in response to the global shift towards sustainable development.”

Cleantech: Enhancing technology adoption

Cleantech technology relates to an approach to reduce the environmental impact of human activity through wasteful practices. Experts from Fluke shared their expertise and offered integrated solutions for renewable energy harvesting, electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS).

Fluke also launched a new handheld tool used in the installation, commissioning, and routine maintenance testing of EVCS at Light + Building. The tool is compatible with Fluke’s multifunction testers and can be paired with Fluke’s range of multimeters or scope meters for investigative troubleshooting.
