Emerson AMS wireless vibration monitor

Emerson’s AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor is an easy-to-deploy vibration sensor that performs prescriptive analytics on vibration data using negative software to automatically identify failure modes and prevent potential problems involving rotating assets. The device makes it economically feasible to monitor motors, pumps, fans and other plant equipment to reduce downtime and achieve reliable operations.

The vibration monitor collects and contextualises vibration data to generate actionable information. By applying Emerson’s PeakVue Plus technology, the device identifies when and how assets fail, and also why. Technicians can quickly identify and prioritise common mechanical issues such as bearing defects, gear wear, under-lubrication and pump cavitation, enabling them to focus more on operations-critical tasks.

The embedded prescriptive analytics enable plant managers to add wireless vibration monitoring to their maintenance toolbox without having to train current staff to perform complex analysis. The company’s Plantweb Optics asset performance platform allows users to receive machinery health alerts anywhere with a mobile device. The alerts can be aggregated with data and asset health information from other sensors and systems, allowing users to run analytics on a range of assets from a single application. This provides a complete picture of the operation’s overall health while generating specific alerts when processes or performance are at risk.

The vibration monitor operates on a plant’s existing WirelessHART network and supports the vibration analysis tools included in Emerson’s AMS Machine Works software. A triaxial sensor is used to capture data in three dimensions to generate a complete picture of the machine condition.
