CSI 2140 VS VibXpert

Hello Would anyone with experience both the 2140 and the VIBXPERT II (and their associated software) weigh in with a basic comparison/opinion of the two? I was asked this recently and I didn't feel I could give them a fair answer since I'm only familiar Emonitor Condition Monitoring Software and Dynamix 2500 equipment. Does anyone feel that one is far superior than the other (or only slightly better) and why? Thank you PK.Read More...

High vibrations in no-break MG set

This is a 1500 RPM, 50 Hz no-break MG set with an diesel engine, flywheel with clutch, an ac motor and a dc generator. The whole train is mounted on AVM pads on a common concrete base as shown. With the engine disengaged and only the ac motor driving the flywheel and the DC generator, the vibrations are consistently high in the region of 5 to 10 mm/sec rms. I have enclosed the overall vibration levels (over a 3-week period) and the spectrum for each bearing of the flywheel, the ac motor and...Read More...

Fin fan cooler with timing belt (2x, 4x FTF)

Dear all, I found 4 equipment that gives similar spektrum with some discrete peak which I match with the harmonic of cage frequency (FTF) (2X and 4X cage freq.). on the field I think the peak belong to the belt frequency but after a closer look with the desktop software I realized it matched with cage frequency harmonic. Please find the equipment specification below Equipment type : Axial fin fan cooler (2 fan per cell) Driver : horizontal motor mounted vertically Bearing DE (NDE) : 6212C3...Read More...

Hi We are facing a strange problem of sudden spike ( lasting for 5-7 sec) in the twin screw comp (KOBELCO) under commissioning. reaching the alarm limit and it trips the compressor (HIGH HIGH - 7mm/sec RMS) As per the manufacturer the accelerometer which he first recommneded by default 330400 is the source of issue as it is introducing integration error, hence ti use 330500 Velometor ( both Bently Nevada make) I have few queries. Why this strange spike in vibration is occuring ? if it is an...Read More...

Trying to set up separate input on CSI 2140

Hello, I am setting up equipment with AMS Machinery Health Manager for our CSI 2140. I am setting up a triax (AC115-1D) for our equipment. Some of the data points along the route are termination boxes with cord grip inputs. Since the CSI 2140 has two 5-pin acceleration inputs I would like to be able to assign measurement points to the channels for both inputs. This way I can have the red/blue splitter in the second acceleration input and the triax in the first input and when I get to the...Read More...
