Emerson AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor

Thursday, 14 November, 2019 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions



Emerson’s AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor is an easy-to-deploy vibration sensor that performs prescriptive analytics on vibration data using native software to automatically identify failure modes and prevent potential problems involving rotating assets. The compact device makes it economically feasible to fully monitor motors, pumps, fans and other critical plant equipment to reduce downtime and achieve ongoing operation.

Many organisations lack the analysis expertise to translate vibration data into asset health. The vibration monitor provides a solution by collecting and contextualising vibration data to generate actionable information. By applying Emerson’s PeakVue Plus technology, the device not only identifies when and how assets will fail, but also why.

Technicians — regardless of expertise — can quickly and clearly identify and prioritise common mechanical issues such as bearing defects, gear wear, under-lubrication and pump cavitation, enabling them to focus more on operations-critical tasks. Due 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.

Users of Emerson’s Plantweb Optics asset performance platform can conveniently 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. This provides a more complete picture of the operation’s overall health while generating specific alerts when processes or performance are at risk.

The product 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.
