The PlantWATCH software combined with the iTi Technologies wireless data acquisition hardware VMU provides a platform to trend, analyse and alarm early machine faults helping to prevent unscheduled downtime.
Some early fault detection examples :
Â· Bearing and gear wear
Â· Lack of Lubrication, excessive unbalance and misalignment
Â· Coupling, belt / sheave, electrical and resonance issues
Key advantage :
Â· Designed â For easy setup of multiple trend parameters
Â· Trend â Temperature, low mechanical vibration, medium and high vibration and lastly high frequency demodulation.
Â· Time waveform â For in-depth analysis PlantWATCH provides full FFT spectrum and time waveform analysis.
System Features :
Â· Email notifications with trend spectrum data
Â· Remote data acquisition, remote analysis, display and management
Â· Variable speed machine monitoring
Â· Portable setup for short term asset monitoring
Â· Battery powered system hence expensive power can be eliminated
Software Specialities :
PlantWATCH software provides FFT Spectrum and time waveform trending, analysis and advanced alarm capability.
