Emerson introduces CSI 2130 Machinery Health Collector
The CSI 2130 Collector is the industry's only portable vibration data collector with a growth path for upgrading to a multi-channel, in-the-field analytical device. It is the ideal instrument for those just beginning to do vibration monitoring. It can also be used as a second data collector to augment existing periodic vibration monitoring programs.
The CSI 2130 Collector features high speed single-channel collection, a unique full-color backlit VGA display, and lightweight, yet rugged design in an advanced instrument for periodic collection of vibration data on rotating machinery. In addition, Emerson's patented PeakVue processing utilizes digital technology to detect stress waves on the spot for an early indicator of bearing or gear wear. PeakVue processing also indicates the severity of a fault, enabling technicians to call for immediate maintenance, if necessary.
Information recorded from each machine in the field can be uploaded to the AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager. Using this software, trained analysts can quickly recognize a change in the vibration pattern of a motor-pump combination, induction fan, or other rotating equipment as an indication of deterioration and can take corrective actions.
The CSI 2130 Collector is compatible with the widely-used accessories for the advanced technology CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer. These include the Advanced Balancing application, a powerful field balancer, and the Advanced Laser Alignment application for quick, easy machine alignments.
