New vibration monitor from Sensonics.Condition monitoring Condition monitoring is the process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery, such that a significant change is indicative of a developing failure. It is a major component of predictive maintenance. systems specialists Sensonics Ltd have recently introduced the DN2601 dual channel vibration (or vibration and temperature) alarm monitor. The DN2601 is particularly suitable when predictive maintenance practices are operational and where continuously rotating equipment such as turbines, motors, pumps, fans etc are in constant use.
Optimising maintenance resources by helping to avoid costly mechanical breakdowns, the compact DN2601 is provided with convenient DIN rail mounting and can be easily fitted in the minimum amount of space. Fitted locally direct to the machine or operated remotely, the DN2601 features 3 digit LCD display, illustrated in engineering units of g's, mm/s, inches/s and [degrees]C.
Protection to machinery is provided by a sophisticated dual level alarm system (2 per channel) with both A1 (alert) and A2 (danger) levels incorporated. The alarms will automatically trip plant or alternatively provide protection via analogue outputs applied to SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) A process control application that collects data from sensors and machines on the shop floor or in remote locations and sends them to a central computer for management and control. , DCS (1) See also DSC.
(2) Digital Cross-connect System) A network switching and grooming device used by telecom carriers. See digital cross-connect. or other monitoring/control systems.
The DN2601 features dual vibration monitoring and provides accelerometer accelerometer
Instrument that measures acceleration. Because it is difficult to measure acceleration directly, the device measures the force exerted by restraints placed on a reference mass to hold its position fixed in an accelerating body. , velocity transducer transducer, device that accepts an input of energy in one form and produces an output of energy in some other form, with a known, fixed relationship between the input and output. or eddy current probe input options compatible with most manufacturers' transducers. This health check feature is included with all alternatives.
Sensonics provides a full range of DIN rail mounted units to monitor shaft vibration, temperature, thrust, position (LVDT LVDT Linear Variable Differential Transformer
