An Alternative Solution for Vibration Monitoring
The customer wants to measure temperature and vibration continuously on their pump packages to catch any issues before a catastrophic failure occurs and becomes a costly expense to replace.
This is a different take on our wireless vibration solution. In this application, we are monitoring vibration on 3 points for each pump package. The motor, pump, and gearbox. With the proximity of each pump package next to each other, we decided to use the Banner RS485 Modbus version. With the DXM100 being the master, we wired the sensors in an RS485 network using T connectors to make everything plug and play.
This solution saved our customer from buying a wireless node for every vibration sensor that was used and gives them continuous monitoring capability to allow preventative maintenance to be done. At A-tech we have a high level of technical expertise that sets us apart from our competitors. We will find the application that is best for our customers’ automation needs and budget.
