Condition Monitoring Emerson’s Condition Monitoring System Expands Protection to More Field Assets
Emerson Process Management has introduced the CSI 3000 Machinery Health Monitor, a compact protection system for a wide range of machinery such as pumps, compressors, centrifuges, blowers and generators.
The CSI 3000 delivers protection data in situations where a standard rack-based system simply will not fit or is not a cost-effective approach. Easy assembly and user-friendly, customisable setup means the CSI 3000 has a short path out of the box to improving availability and ensuring the safety of rotating assets.
The CSI 3000 measures shaft vibration, bearing vibration, position and speed, and generates key signals. The system provides the user with alarm outputs for each channel and does not require additional signal converters for shaft vibration and displacement measurements.
“Emerson offers a complete line of protection monitors — from the rack-mounted CSI 6500 online monitoring system and the basic CSI 9360 Vibration/Position Transmitter, to the CSI 6300 SIS that guards against overspeed conditions,” said Björn Müller, Emerson’s product manager for online sensors. “This is another example of how we are delivering capabilities that bring stability to our user’s operations through services and technologies that reduce downtime and improve availability.”
