Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring
Reactive maintenance processes inherently lead to unplanned downtime and lost production, inefficiencies that cost the U.S. economy as much as $2.5 Trillion per year (as estimated by the DoE Industrial Technologies Program). To help companies eliminate these costs and enhance productivity, Oeler Industries, Inc. has teamed up with KCF Technologies in introducing SmartDiagnostics®.

An innovative predictive maintenance system for pumps, motors and other rotating industrial and commercial equipment, SmartDiagnostics® was designed from the outset as an affordable, integrated suite of products that puts predictive maintenance within practical reach of medium and small operations – anyone that demands the best protection and longest life from key machinery. With SmartDiagnostics® you give your machines a voice so they can tell you when they need attention!

SmartDiagnostics® System

At the core of the SmartDiagnostics® solution is the Machine Condition Monitoring System — powerful, easy-to-use software and low-power wireless vibration sensors that enable technicians or engineers to visualize the operating state of equipment in order to predict when to perform maintenance.

The SmartDiagnostics® system depicted below starts with the Vibration Sensor Nodes. These sensors are placed directly on to equipment and are configured to transmit data within minutes to the Primary Receiver Node. Up to 100 Vibration Sensor Nodes can be linked to 1 Primary Receiver Node and up to 5 receivers have been tested with the system, meaning that a single system could manage up to 500 sensors at once. The wireless receivers then relay the sensor information either straight to a computer with Machine Condition Monitoring Software (MCM) via USB or to a Collection Server. Collection Servers are often used in remote locations where it’s not possible to place the Primary Receiver Nodes and the MCM Software computer in the same location. The Collection Server can then pre-process the sensor data and transfer it to the computer either through Wi-Fi, Cellular, or Ethernet.

SmartDiagnositcs Sensor Node

Optimized for low-power usage, SmartDiagnostics Vibration Sensor Nodes use KCF Technologies proprietary wireless protocol that transmits the full dynamic vibration spectrum over the air on a nearly-continuous basis.

SmartDiagnostics Wireless Receiver

The SmartDiagnostics® Primary Receiver Node (PRN) wirelessly collects data from the sensor nodes in real time, enabling accurate and reliable monitoring of plant equipment.

SmartDiagnostics Collection Server

The Collection Server enables users to place wireless sensors in remote locations where wireless transmission is not possible, setting up a local receiver station that communicates to the MCM computer via hardwire.

SmartDiagnostics Software

SmartDiagnostics® Machine Condition Monitoring Software (MCM) displays near-continuous information on the health of critical equipment by tracking the patterns of machine vibration across a broad frequency over time.
