Condition monitoring starter kit
10 September 2021
IN ORDER to bring effective, 24/7 condition monitoring to all sizes of business Turck Banner has introduced a self-contained, pre-programmed, starter kit for vibration and temperature monitoring at less than £600.
The kit is designed for the first-time user, with everything included to monitor one motor and receive warnings before failure. As it uses the same controller as the company's large condition monitoring systems there is no compromise in performance, or the capabilities to expand into a large scale monitoring system integrating in to existing local and cloud networks.
The IP67 control module does not require a cabinet and connects wirelessly to the sensor, which is easily mounted on a motor, pump or fan, with the magnetic mounting bracket included in the kit.
Once connected, the controller monitors the running vibration and temperature of the motor and sets a baseline operating range. From this baseline the controller intelligently establishes warning and alarm alert levels for this motor. The current motor condition is displayed on a web interface as a Green, Amber or Red icon, with all the historical data shown at the touch of the icon. The web interface allows remote condition display from any browser on any smart phone, tablet or PC. When this is combined with text alerts, maintenance personnel have instant access to the condition monitoring system whenever they need it.
