Triaxial Accelerometer enables portable vibration analysis.

Press Release Summary:

Able to be used with 2-channel CSI 2130 Machinery Health(TM) Analyzer, Triaxial Accelerometer provides solution for monitoring rotating equipment. By magnetically attaching to mounting pad, it delivers measurements up to 10 kHz in primary axis and above 3 kHz in secondary axes. Used in conjunction with PeakVue® technology, sensor's high-frequency response range identifies bearing faults and improper machine lubrication. Data capture on typ bearing point is obtained in 7-10 sec.

Emerson Introduces New Triaxial Accelerometer that Slashes Data Collection Time for Portable Vibration Analysis by 30 to 75 Percent

New accelerometer delivers data to Emerson's CSI 2130 Machinery Health(TM) Analyzer for use in improving the identification of bearing faults and improper lubrication

KNOXVILLE, TN (November 8, 2005) - Emerson Process Management has introduced a specially designed triaxial accelerometer with integral magnet that breaks new ground in monitoring rotating equipment. Smaller than conventional triaxial accelerometers, this new sensor delivers excellent measurement quality and faster data collection in the field by technicians using the dual channel CSI 2130 Machinery Health(TM) Analyzer.

When used with the CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer, the triaxial accelerometer delivers excellent measurement quality and faster data collection in the field.

Emerson's new triaxial accelerometer decreases implementation costs because it does not require a stud mount. Instead, it can be magnetically attached on a mounting pad and still deliver excellent measurements up to 10 KHz in the primary axis and above 3 KHz in the secondary axes. When used in conjunction with Emerson's PeakVue® technology, the sensor's high frequency response range identifies bearing faults and improper machine lubrication, ensuring that users are made aware of these potentially damaging conditions. Using this approach, all the required data on a typical bearing point can be gathered in 7 to 10 seconds - 30% to 75% faster than with conventional approaches - slashing hours from collection time in the field.

The compact design of Emerson's triaxial sensor also makes it versatile enough for general monitoring applications as a single-axis sensor without any special type of mounting. It can be placed directly on the machine housing - even curved surfaces - and still provide quality data.

Users gain the full value of the new triaxial accelerometer and CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer when they are used in conjunction with Emerson's AMS(TM) Suite: Machinery Health Manager software application that makes the condition of critical mechanical equipment readily available to key plant decision-makers.

Emerson's Machinery Health Management solutions are key elements of the PlantWeb® digital plant architecture. PlantWeb integrates process automation and asset management in a network of predictive intelligence.
