Emerson Innovations Featured In Launch of Portable Vibration Data Analyzer That Delivers Next Generation Maintenance Efficiencies
New CSI Model 2130 RBMconsultant® PRO data collector features fast acquisition and easy, guided operation for effective machinery health management of rotating equipment.
KNOXVILLE, TN (January 31, 2003) - Emerson Process Management announces the next generation CSI Model 2130 vibration analyzer that combines faster and easier operation with outstanding performance, making it possible to gather information faster than ever before. As collection time is reduced, existing personnel can monitor more plant equipment in the same amount of time, helping to alleviate manpower constraints. The investment in this laborsaving unit can typically be returned within one year.
The new Model 2130 RBMconsultant® PRO data collector/analyzer is "faster and more powerful than other portable devices, including Emerson's own highly regarded CSI Model 2120 data collector," said Robert Skeirik, marketing manager for vibration technologies. "The 2130 PRO has all the features and functionality of the 2120 and more. It features the functionality and ease of use of a large color display, four times larger than the Model 2120, along with greatly expanded memory, enhanced dual channel capability, and a more intuitive user interface. Embedded intelligence guides the user through the data collection process. With extensive help messages, it's like taking the instruction manual with you into the field."
The improved dual channel functionality makes it possible to simultaneously gather any two vibration signals, further cutting data collection time and adding to the 2130's fast acquisition speed.
The high performance 2130 PRO features extremely low-noise circuitry, the patented PeakVue® technology, accurate measurement of variable speed machinery, in-field alarming, and advanced diagnostics. Low-noise circuitry enables the unit to zero in on low-amplitude signals, such as those from an inner race bearing fault - something that can shut down a plant. Furthermore, Emerson's CSI PeakVue® technology filters out normal rotational vibration, allowing the 2130 PRO to identify bearing faults in their earliest stages. Not only is the presence of a fault detected, an indication of the severity of the problem is provided.
Proper diagnosis of machinery problems depends on turning speed, and the 2130 PRO offers the unique capability to automatically compensate for the actual turning speed when performing in-field alarming. When an alarm is triggered, embedded intelligence makes it simple and painless to collect advanced data required to drive through to a conclusive analysis.
"At initial release, the 2130 PRO is a superior vibration data analyzer in virtually every aspect," according to Skeirik. "With its advanced user interface and technology, the 2130 exceeds even the Model 2120 capability, and has the power and flexibility to not only addresses today's production issues, but support Emerson's development of the solution to tomorrow's challenges as well."
