Extended vibration monitoring

By Plant Engineering Staff September 26, 2006

Two new safety-rated versions of the CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer are available for evaluating the condition of a broad range of equipment types in hazardous work areas.Both versions comply with the rigorous international safety standards established by Factory Mutual (FM), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and the European (ATEX) standard, extending the use of these tools for assessing the condition of rotating machinery in sensitive plant environments.

The safety-certified versions of the CSI 2130 retain all functions of the machinery health analyzers commonly operating in other areas.They are capable of gathering large amounts of data and reducing it into accurate diagnostics and actionable information. The collected data are uploaded for analysis and trending to the AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager software, a component of Emerson’s PlantWeb digital plant architecture. The health of critically important rotating equipment in hazardous areas can now be addressed through:

  • Vibration data collection (single or dual-channel)

  • Vibration analysis (single and dual-channel)

  • Advanced cross-channel vibration analysis

  • Cascade analysis for machine startup or coast-down (single or dual-channel)

  • Advanced transient analysis (single or dual-channel).
