Emerson enhances AMS Suite for wireless vibration data

May 10, 2010 – Emerson released AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager, AMS Machinery Manager v5.4 to augment its presentation of predictive diagnostics from all types of mechanical assets by adding wireless access to spectral and waveform vibration diagnostics. Additionally, AMS Machinery Manager v5.4 enables the easy integration of the CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor protection and prediction system with either the DeltaV or Ovation digital automation system. This solution integrates machinery health diagnostics information between the protection system, asset management software, and control system, enabling maintenance and operations personnel access to critical, real-time machinery health information that allows them to identify and resolve machinery issues before process interruptions occur. Wireless vibration transmitters provide accurate vibration monitoring on mechanical assets such as motors, fans, and pumps. AMS Machinery Manager v5.4 supports important spectrum, waveform, and trend vibration data from the CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter. This information allows users to more effectively manage the performance of rotating equipment through analysis of key machinery health information. Data can be imported on demand or at regularly scheduled intervals, based on specific maintenance and equipment needs. Emerson’s CSI 9420 is the first vibration transmitter to use the IEC-approved WirelessHART industry-standard protocol to deliver full vibration data for machinery health analysis. In addition, CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer users will benefit from new functionality in AMS Machinery Manager v5.4, including multiple route load, new plotting tools for Bode and Nyquist plots, multiple trends displayed on a single plot, and fault frequency displayed on Analyzer Job data. Expanded case history management in AMS Machinery Manager supports additional file types associated with individual case history entries. AMS Machinery Manager v5.4 also includes a new easy-to-use Overall Vibration Index report for quickly identifying those plant assets where vibration levels exceed threshold values.“Emerson’s commitment to wireless technology and maximizing user value in AMS Suite is evident in this latest release,” said Craig Llewellyn, president of Emerson’s Asset Optimization business. “With an emphasis on ease-of-use, AMS Suite is raising the bar with unprecedented visibility to the condition and performance of critical machinery in the plant. Through the integration of wireless vibration diagnostics and machinery protection systems, operators and maintenance personnel can more effectively identify and resolve issues while maintaining production and preserving equipment health.” About Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management, an Emerson business, is a leader in helping businesses automate their production, processing and distribution in the chemical, oil and gas, refining, pulp and paper, power, water and wastewater treatment, mining and metals, food and beverage, life sciences and other industries.
