Emerson Process Management's CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter delivers information for machinery analysis
Emerson Process Management has expanded the capabilities of its CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter to deliver more detailed information for machinery analysis. In addition to sending operators direct alerts on high vibration caused by faults like cavitation or bearing defects, the CSI 9420 is also designed to use Emerson's Smart Wireless network to send high-resolution spectra to vibration experts for detailed diagnosis of machinery issues.
The CSI 9420 is engineered to connect to any machine. Its wireless capabilities are designed for equipment that is in remote or hard-to-reach locations, is inadequately monitored, and needs more visibility to operations and maintenance personnel.
Vibration information delivered wirelessly by the CSI 9420 includes velocity and PeakVue stress wave values. Configuration, diagnostics and alerts from the CSI 9420 are available in Emerson's AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, while vibration data can be correlated with other process variables in the company's DeltaV and Ovation digital control systems, as well as other suppliers' data historians or control systems. The CSI 9420 has a user-configurable interface to report high-resolution spectra and waveforms, as well as vibration energy bands for enhanced trending and alarming.
