Space grade measurement tech brought into condition monitoring

0

Dewesoft has launched an accurate, reliable, easy to use and cost-effective vibration and temperature machine condition monitoring solution.

Specifically, the solution is composed of the Dewesoft IOLITEd-2xASI, a device with two analog sensor interface channels and one tacho and theDewesoft ASI-1xVIB-50g, a 10 kHz vibration, and temperature sensor ran by Dewesoft’s Machine Condition Monitoring software.

The Dewesoft IOLITEd-2xASI converts the signal from Dewesoft ASI-1xVIB-50g sensors and sends the data over the EtherCAT bus to the master PC. Up to two ACC-SNS sensors with M8 connectors can be connected.

The maximum sample rate is 40 kS/s per channel. Only a single network cable is needed to daisy chain multiple IOLITEd-2xASI devices with up to 50 m device-device distance.  The module is available in IP20 or IP67 versions to assure protection against water, dust, and other elements.

The Dewesoft ASI-1xVIB-50g is a vibration and temperature measurement probe. Packaged in a small aluminum housing, it consists of two sensors: a single axis accelerometer with 0-10 kHz bandwidth and analog voltage output, and a temperature sensor with an I2C interface. The probe is rated with IP67 ingress protection and -20 to +85 °C temperature range.

The Dewesoft machine condition monitoring software features; an FFT analyzer, time-domain analyzer, orbit analyzer, waterfall diagram, and bearing fault detection for rolling and hydrodynamic bearing. It also includes and high-level software layer with an overview of the machinery state.

Historical data can be permanently stored on a local or cloud server and can be used for trends as well as for later in-depth analysis and root cause identification. Connectivity to any third party control system is straightforward using the OPC/UA protocol. Data can be accessed from the client’s local computer, control system or remotely via the pre-configured web browser application. To save maintenance engineers time, thresholds, alarming and reporting functionalities are available within a single click.
