Emerson introduces CSI 9420 wireless vibration transmitter
As a component of Emerson's Smart Wireless solutions, the rugged industrial transmitter connects quickly, easily, and economically to any machine. Through the PlantWeb digital plant architecture, the transmitter delivers vibration information over a highly reliable wireless self-organizing network for use by operations and maintenance personnel. Configuration, diagnostics, and alerts from the wireless vibration transmitter are available in AMS Suite predictive maintenance software. Vibration data is also available in data historians or any control system for trending and analysis with other process parameters. In addition to measuring overall vibration, the CSI 9420 Machinery Health transmitter includes PeakVue technology for advanced bearing diagnostics.
Users can apply this device on a wide range of equipment such as pumps, motors, fans, compressors, pulverizers and many other types of equipment. Benefits from deploying the wireless vibration transmitter go beyond equipment reliability to include health, safety, and environmental applications.
"Adding the wireless vibration transmitter to Emerson's portfolio of Smart Wireless devices gives plant personnel another powerful predictive tool to increase safety, reliability and uptime of machinery in process plants," said Craig Llewellyn, president of the Asset Optimization division. "In extensive plant trials, users are applying this capability on a wide variety of equipment and discovering innovative new applications."
Emerson's Smart Wireless solutions extend the PlantWeb architecture to deliver new information access and mobility for improved decision-making and plant performance. The Smart Wireless field solutions integrate smart monitoring instruments wirelessly in a self-organizing mesh network that delivers greater than 99.9 percent reliability by automatically adapting as devices are added or removed, or obstructions encountered. Smart Wireless products are supported by Emerson's guarantee of an easy migration path to industry standards and full compliance with WirelessHART standard. The wireless vibration transmitter will be available for shipment in early 2008.
