Emerson's AMS Suite expands machinery monitoring with wireless vibration and alarm management
Emerson has announced the release of AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager 5.3. The AMS Machinery Manager release expands end-user machinery monitoring by adding Smart Wireless vibration, autoplot capabilities, and alarm analysis and management.
With AMS Machinery Manager 5.3, end users gain new insight into the operations of their critical machinery through the integration of wireless vibration information from the CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter. In addition to wireless vibration diagnostics, process data from any WirelessHART-enabled transmitter can be imported into AMS Machinery Manager. Part of a complete wireless solution for machinery monitoring, AMS Machinery Manager combines diagnostics from wireless devices with other machinery health information to deliver a complete picture of equipment health and reliability.
With AMS Machinery Manager, users experience a holistic view of machinery health in a single integrated application. Important device diagnostic information can be correlated from multiple sources, including online machinery monitoring systems, portable route-based analyzers and wireless devices. With this comprehensive picture of equipment health, users can identify alerts that could impact production and drive to the root cause of persistent problems.
Alarm limit functionality in AMS Machinery Manager 5.3 allows users to reset machinery health alarms for in-depth analysis of impending failures. With autoplot capabilities, plot data is displayed sequentially or as one plot at a time for both online and portable vibration data, so users can manipulate the data as needed to make informed decisions. Users can also access case histories, automated diagnosis and logged machinery health notes to support decision-making.
An infrared thermography module in AMS Machinery Manager 5.3 supports Fluke Ti55 IR images. With this import functionality, users can view and configure Fluke visual and thermal images. Improved IR reporting formats provide user-selectable items for inclusion within the reports.
