Emerson has introduced its AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor to the market.
The compact device makes it economically feasible to fully monitor motors, pumps, fans and other critical plant equipment to reduce downtime and achieve more reliable operations.
The AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor provides a solution by collecting and contextualizing vibration data to generate actionable information.
“Thanks to the embedded prescriptive analytics, plant managers can add wireless vibration monitoring to their maintenance toolbox without having to train current staff to perform complex analysis,” said Robert Skeirik, director of machinery health solutions product management with Emerson’s Automation Solutions business.
Users of Emerson’s Plantweb Optics asset performance platform can receive machinery health alerts anywhere with a mobile device.
These alerts can also be aggregated with data and asset health information from other sensors and systems, allowing users to run analytics on all types of assets from a single application.
The AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor operates on a plant’s existing WirelessHART network and fully supports the vibration analysis tools included in Emerson’s AMS Machine Works software.
It uses a triaxial sensor to capture data in three dimensions to generate a complete picture of the machine condition.
