Plug & Play sensor enables predictive gear unit maintenance

Monday, June 4th, 2018 von admin

Gear unit manufacturer Flender will be launching its new DX500 product with associated DX Assist app at the Achema show in Frankfurt am Main. The new smart sensor in the Diagnostex product series is a plug & play solution for measurement of vibrations and temperatures on the gear unit and notifies the system operator of irregularities by app straight to his smartphone or tablet. It enables the planning of predictive service work before unscheduled interruptions or stoppages of the production process can occur.

KSB puts pumps into the Internet of Things

Thursday, March 15th, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, KSB is presenting a new pump monitoring system called KSB Guard. Networked vibration and temperature sensors fitted directly to the pump make availability at plant level transparent. The system ensures that changes in the operating behaviour of the machine are detected at an early stage, and maintenance work can be better planned, without having to be on site with the pump. Unlike previous systems, KSB Guard is ideally suited for retrofitting. The sensor unit is attached to the bearing bracket or the drive lantern of the pump using a magnet and adhesive, and can be mounted during operation, with no need for changes to the machine. A battery unit, which is also supplied, provides self-sufficient power supply.

The Sure-Flex Plus couplings have new elastomeric sleeves providing higher performance and enhanced durability due to significant improvements in proprietary EPDM and Neoprene materials. Development testing confirmed that the new EPDM and Neoprene rubber sleeves enable a 30 % increase in the torque rating when compared to the previous generation sleeves. Sure-Flex Plus couplings provide torsional flexibility, while the 4-way flexing action absorbs virtually all types of

Prüftechnik: Wireless vibration analysis

Monday, March 31st, 2014 von admin

Power stationVibconnect RF is a condition monitoring system for large facilities with many standard machines like pumps. Even if there is no line-of-sight between the base station and the sensor units, the wireless signals are transmitted error-free. A new firmware update elevates this wireless online condition monitoring system to a higher plane. With its wireless technology, it fits for applications, which require the wireless transfer of vibration measurement data over long distances. The new firmware update includes several powerful new features:

  • Sending status and alarm emails,
  • supporting Modbus TCP,
  • reducing data overload,
  • live visualization of measurement data and
  • providing a 24V sensor unit version.

The new features are supported by the current version of the proven Omnitrend software.
