Emer­son em­beds pre­dic­tion data into pro­tec­tion sys­tem to im­prove re­li­a­bil­ity of crit­i­cal as­sets

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

The CSI 6500 ATG pro­tec­tion sys­tem, a stand-alone ma­chin­ery pro­tec­tion so­lu­tion that also al­lows users to cost-ef­fec­tively in­tro­duce pre­dic­tion mon­i­tor­ing of crit­i­cal as­sets from the same sys­tem, has been re­leased onto the mar­ket by Emer­son. Pre­dic­tive in­tel­li­gence is a key com­po­nent to in­creas­ing avail­abil­ity and im­prov­ing the re­li­a­bil­ity of plant as­sets.

New CSI 6500 ATG multi-func­tional cards can be eas­ily re­con­fig­ured for a wide range of mea­sure­ments, in­clud­ing the im­pact­ing or peak-to-peak data used in Emer­son’s unique PeakVue tech­nol­ogy. In ad­di­tion to mon­i­tor­ing the start-up and coast­down of crit­i­cal turbo ma­chin­ery for safe op­er­a­tion, users will be able to utilise PeakVue tech­nol­ogy to iden­tify the ear­li­est in­di­ca­tions of de­vel­op­ing faults in gear­boxes and bear­ings.

With the CSI 6500 ATG, it is no longer nec­es­sary to re­turn to the con­trol room or open cab­i­nets in the field to view or an­a­lyse data. The CSI 6500 ATG can be net­worked over wired or wire­less Eth­er­net to de­liver as­set health in­for­ma­tion to au­tho­rised users through a PC

To fa­cil­i­tate easy sys­tem in­te­gra­tion with third party sys­tems, CSI 6500 ATG is the first pro­tec­tion sys­tem to in­clude a se­cure em­bed­ded OPC UA server.

“Stud­ies show that it costs 50 per­cent more to re­pair a ma­chine af­ter it has failed ver­sus pre­dict­ing the fail­ure and thus plan­ning for the re­pair costs,” said Thomas Wew­ers, di­rec­tor of tech­nol­ogy for Emer­son’s re­li­a­bil­ity so­lu­tions. “For users whose bud­get doesn’t cover the cost of both a pro­tec­tion and a pre­dic­tion sys­tem, get­ting pre­dic­tion data from a pro­tec­tion sys­tem is an in­cre­men­tal step to­wards im­prov­ing the insight on as­set health.”

The CSI ATG sys­tem com­plies with the tra­di­tional API 670 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and is cer­ti­fied for in­stal­la­tion in de­mand­ing en­vi­ron­ments where Class 1 Div2/ATEX Zone 2 ap­provals are re­quired.
