Fluke Process Instruments has partnered with mobile robotics trailblazer Boston Dynamics to bring Fluke Process Instruments’ new SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager capabilities to Boston Dynamics’ agile mobile robot Spot®.
In a video released by Fluke Process Instruments today, the SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager can be seen mounted on Spot with payload accessories that will be available to order from Fluke Process Instruments.
The SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager enables users to detect, locate and visualize air and gas leaks or changes in mechanical 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 problem areas.
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 unstructured terrain to automate industrial inspections, monitor remote or hazardous environments and provide situational awareness in remote settings. The robot can also be reconfigured for various use cases to increase efficiency and greatly reduce safety risks. With the SV600 payload Spot will now be able to automate air and gas leak detection and identify mechanical sound signatures.
