Electronic monitoring of the “health” of your machine
Condition monitoring revolves around determining the condition of the machine based on the measurement and analysis of physical parameters. Sensors supply data in real time. The continuous analysis enables trends to be highlighted and possible damage to components to be identified before a failure actually occurs.
Safeguarding of machine and system availability
Reduction in maintenance costs
Prevention of unscheduled standstills
Planned repairs instead of “emergency situations”
Early detection of incipient damage
Timely procurement of spare parts
With a sensor system, long-term archiving and trend display
Early detection of crashes, bearing damage, imbalance, gearing faults and wear
Status display with simple traffic-light logic, warning messages and alarms
Graphical presentation of status over time for better assessment of the course of the damage and detailed analyses afterwards
