The CMSS 500 Series of Machine Condition Transmitters (MCT) are 4-20 mA transmitters. They convert part of the input signal to a 4-20 mA output proportional to the overall measurement and can be directly interfaced to an existing process control system (PLC or DCS). Combining transmitters with a programmable logic controller (PLC) or a distributed control system (DCS) result in a hight density, low cost vibration monitoring system.
The Machine Condition Indicator is an economical vibration sensor and indicator for monitoring of non-critical machines. It is ideal for machinery with constant operating conditions not previously monitored in plants. The device can be compared to the “check engine” light in a car.
The Wireless Machine Condition Sensor combines a sensor, data collector and radio into one compact, battery-operated device that measures both vibration and temperature data. This unique system, which is approved for use in hazardous areas requiring ATEXZone 0 certification, provides a balance-of-plant monitor, wirelessly transmitting both static and dynamic data to the @ptitude Monitoring Suite Software.
The CMSS 420 series are solid state, loop-powered vibration transmitters. They provide a 4 to 20 mA, output that is proportional to overall vibration in terms of velocity. The series of CMSS 420 continuously monitor machinery health and transmit directly into a PLC or DCS for trending, alarm and machine shutdown. In addition, the CMSS 420VT provides access to the dynamic transducer output. The buffered output is available for temporary connection of portable analyzers for detailed machine fault analysis.
