Condition monitoring is the use of sensors to collect machine health data. This data is analyzed to determine if changes in the performance or condition of a machine, or its components, is occurring while it is in operation. When used with rotating and/or reciprocating machinery, the parameters often used for monitoring are vibration and temperature and running speed. The sensors record data based on fluctuations of those specific parameters and this data can be used in predictive maintenance.
Condition monitoring, especially online condition monitoring, provides data on the present and historic state of a component or machine and can be used to predict future state. This allows predictive analysis to identify problems early and plan repairs in advance, avoiding unscheduled downtime. Ultimately, this leads to increased reliability, improved uptime, increased production output, and minimized maintenance costs.
Condition-based maintenance is a strategy that uses sensors to determine the current state of a component or machine or piece of equipment so a decision about the maintenance that needs to be done, and when, can be made. Rather than relying on monthly or quarterly inspections, with condition monitoring the maintenance is performed only when the data shows that components, parts, and assemblies show signs of wear or imminent failure.
Condition monitoring techniques can be used solely or in combination, determined by the machine or equipment involved. Vibration analysis which integrates temperature and running conditions such as speed is a common technique utilized in predictive maintenance. Others include ultrasound testing, lubricant analysis and thermography.
Access Critical Data from AnywhereThe Dynapar OnSite™ System monitors speed, acceleration, temperature and vibration data. Alarms can be set and correlations can be drawn to a machine's running conditions to detect a change of state via the cloud.
Affordable, Even to Monitor Only 1 PointEven the smallest motor can cause downtime. The Dynapar OnSite™ System is the first product in its class that offers powerful condition monitoring at an accessible cost with no large upfront investment so you can monitor any asset affordably.
Easy to Deploy and Use by AnyoneThe Dynapar OnSite™ System units can be installed and configured in less than 30 minutes. Wi-Fi or cellular communication eliminates wiring and browser-based analytics means no adjustments to control architecture.
Easy to Scale or Transfer to Different AssetsWith a Wi-Fi or cellular network, one 4-point system is affordable to monitor any machine and more units can be added to monitor more assets. Existing units can be easily transferred to different assets.
Enable Collaboration in the CloudSecure cloud-based analytics can be accessed by anyone on the team and is independent of control data allowing maintenance, operations and vibration professionals to collaborate and make timely decisions.
Built for Tough Environments and Remote LocationsThe Dynapar OnSite™ System is designed to survive in harsh environments that may be dangerous or too remote to send route based teams on a regular basis.
