“What is Condition Monitoring?”
Condition Monitoring is the collection and trending of parameters which change when machine condition begins to degrade.

Physical characteristics are identified that collectively indicate the current condition of the machine.

Each of these characteristics is measured, analyzed, and recorded so that trends can be recognized.

The goal is to identify changes in the condition of a machine that will indicate some potential failure.

Production Assurance

The solution consists of a controller linked to a series of sensors installed on the critical bearings or shafts which then pass data to an Intelligent Vibration module. The module processes the vibration data using specially developed gSE technology  to allow early detection of rolling element bearing defects such as Unbalance, Miss-alignment or Looseness

The Controller switches sensor inputs in pairs via the Isolated Relays and routes them to the Module for processing, the Logic also allows for different monitoring parameters to be loaded depending on which sensors  are being monitored – i.e. continuously rolling shafts versus indexing or reciprocating levers etc.
