Emerson upgrades AMS Suite to extend prediction data

Emerson Process Management has released version 5.61 of AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager, which will enable the CSI 6500 protection system to communicate additional prediction data to allow users to make real-time decisions on operating their critical assets.

Using a simple Ethernet connection from the CSI 6500, users receive periodic parameter trends and spectrum/waveform data delivered on specific intervals. This data is particularly useful for determining the health of sleeve bearings on turbo machinery. The automated process for acquiring prediction data eliminates the need to connect to buffered outputs on the protection system and reduces the risk of inadvertently causing a machine trip.

In addition, waveform data from the CSI 6500 is now incorporated onto the circular polar plots available in AMS Machinery Manager, facilitating diagnosis of developing valve faults in reciprocating compressors.

“Emerson is committed to developing customer solutions that capture more of the right data and delivering it in a way that allows users to make real-time, quality decisions on how to operate their assets,” said Nathan Pettus, vice president of Emerson’s Reliability Solutions business.

Emerson’s AMS Machinery Manager integrates data from route-based, online and wireless vibration solutions as well as third-party oil and infrared analysis data to provide a complete picture of machinery health.
