PRUFTECHNIK has expanded its intelligent Online Condition Monitoring portfolio with VIBGUARD compact. As intelligent online CMS, the new VIBGUARD compact offers premium asset manufacturers of drivetrains and machines as well as their operators the same performance as its big brother VIBGUARD.
While VIBGUARD features 20 measuring channels, VIBGUARD compact offers 6 measuring channels for continuous monitoring of fast and highly dynamic processes. The system can be easily integrated into the process control environment using the bidirectional Modbus interface. With focus on rotating equipment, VIBGUARD compact delivers continuous and detailed condition overviews of all relevant machine components in nearly real time.
The six analogue channels of VIBGUARD compact were developed for single aggregate monitoring and measure data in parallel and synchronously for continuous acquisition.
In combination with speed and additional asset information from the PLC, VIBGUARD compact ensures reliable monitoring – even with frequently changing operating conditions. It can thus protect against unplanned downtimes, secure production, and sustainably increase the efficiency of the single aggregate.
“The intelligent event recorder of the VIBGUARD compact, which captures, saves, and interprets large amounts of data makes the advantages of Industry 4.0 available to customers in online condition monitoring and single aggregate diagnostics,” commented Michael Stolze, Product Management Manager.
