General Purpose Protection Modules

General purpose protection modules offer the measurements, functions, and performance that you need to monitor your rotating machinery and many larger machines. Protection monitors warn operators, and may directly shut down machines, when they detect severe conditions that could result in substantial damage or catastrophic failure. Except for our ControlNet™-enabled modules, all general purpose protection modules communicate via DeviceNet™ network.

Dynamic Measurement

Dynamic Measurement

Our dynamic measurement modules perform sophisticated real-time measurements of dynamic signals such as vibration, pressure, and strain. The modules perform complex Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) processing of signals and measure the frequency components of the resulting spectra. These FFT-based measures are configured to provide diagnostic information such as specific faults. When you are aware of faults and monitor them as they propagate, you can plan maintenance activities to minimize their impact on production and on machine repair costs.

gSE Vibration

gSE Vibration

Our gSE vibration modules measure conventional and g Spike Energy (gSE) vibration. gSE is a signal processing technique providing an accurate measure of the energy generated by transient or mechanical impacts.

Overall Vibration

Overall Vibration

Our overall vibration modules measure and report both overall vibration and bias voltage. We offer standard modules, as well as modules that have 4…20 mA Out or that provide power to connected eddy current probe systems.

Packaged Vibration Monitors

Packaged Vibration Monitors

Our packaged vibration monitors are pre-assembled vibration monitoring systems. Each package includes a dynamic measurement module or a gSE vibration module, an expansion relay module, and a front panel display.
