Emerson Process Management's CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor is designed for remote monitoring situations
Emerson Process Management announces a physically smaller version of its CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor to allow predictive condition monitoring of rotating equipment in a greater number of applications. This smaller version is designed for installation in remote or skid mount applications. As in the full-sized chassis option, prediction capabilities in the smaller unit can be delivered as a standalone solution, integrated with both the DeltaV and Ovation digital automation systems in the PlantWeb digital plant architecture, or interfaced to third-party hosts.
The smaller version of the CSI 6500 is 7.5 inches wide by 10.5 inches high. With either 12- or 24-channel count configurations, the CSI 6500 can be designed to provide only as many channels as the application requires.
As with the full-sized monitors, state-based triggered acquisition versus round robin data collection is utilized, so monitoring is tailored to process conditions or machine states rather than collecting generic vibration data. Smart communication handling includes 32Mb of onboard memory to handle the unique challenges of remote applications such as intermittent network connections. Trends and machinery health information are delivered to AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager predictive maintenance software for advanced analysis and documentation.
