CSI 2130- testing Vehicle cab vibration

Vibsouth ·
Hi Guys we have a 2130 and would like to test the in-cab vibration of one of our ve hicle's. The reason why is that we have changed the tyres to a harder compound and the operators are feeling more d iscomfort, so I have been asked if we can test the vibration. Is there some way I can get the 2130 to run for 60 seconds or so to collect a continuous waveform? Thanks

CSI AMS MHM Software

DGronski ·
Anyone try using CSI AMS MHM Software with Windows 10, yet? I have been using it for about a month. Seems to work fine in every aspect except when it comes to communicating with a 2130 analyzer. I can communicate with a 2120 just fine, but not a 2130. CSI won't even try to help, as the say they do not support Windows 10, yet, which is no surprise since they are always the last ones to approve their software with the latest operating system. I doubt that they even will try very hard, since...

Triax & 2130

I have a few fans that I will be reading with my triax, the bearings are only accessible in the vertical position. Question is, how do I tell the software it is now reading in the vertical position instead of the horizontal position? Also, would Z now be facing out?

Where can I get AMS Machinery Manager?

Hi everyone, I am planning to invest a CSI 2130 used but there is no AMS machinery manager software. Where can I get it? It is not included balancing function, how to I put it in firmware? Thanks in advance!

Re: Where can I get AMS Machinery Manager?

Shurafa ·
I guess the firmware is serialized as it comes from the vendor. So, I guess adding new functions (e.g. balancing if not already included) can be done only through the vendor. CSI 2130 is about to be considered obsolete. You like to consider that as a factor if your plan is for a long term use. Regards- Ali M. Al-Shurafa

I would agree with Shurafa if it was my own personal investment and I was in it for the long haul. I will attach a letter I have from Emerson/CSI stating the end of the life cycle, including all product support for the 2130. I will also tell you that the AMS software is pricey. Last I checked is was somewhere around $19,000USD for the silver package and $32,500USD for the platinum package. Additionally if you look at a 4ch 2140 that will set you back another $33,000USD. Those are new prices...

Yes you can take live monitoring of time wave form or spectrum using the monitor mode option in manual analyze. Press "Run Analyze" Go to "Manual Analyze" Choose "set averaging" Then change the mode" Aquire mode to monitor mode"

Re: CSI 2130- testing Vehicle cab vibration

Walt Strong ·
If the tires have already been changed, then how will you get a comparison of new tires with previous tires to quantify the difference in vibrations and perhaps sound? How will you correlate current vibrations to driver discomfort? Are you really considering changing the new tires for something else? Have you measured tire air pressure, wheel balance, and front wheel alignment? I have seen car tires that were balanced on machine off car, but ran rough on car due to eccentricity. I also have...

Hi Walt I didn't really give enough context. they are anode transport vehicle's that do about 20KPH and only have three wheels. the tyres where replaced to see if they would last longer. Harder compound I agree with not having the old ones to compare them to so I will follow up on that and see if we can put a set of the old type tyres on one of them next time thanks

There is a standard procedure I used once where you place a circular plate beneath the rear end of the operator, we made it out of wood, with a accelerometer in the center, 3-axis if you like to be fancy or just vertical. Test specify some strange filtering and measurement but for your comparison a FFT including low freq. may be enough. Olov

I have 2 cases I remember, one was a wood processing thing running around in the wood where the rubber isolators btw cab and frame was wrong and we compared btw. existing and exchanged rubber elements and we just had a normal setup. Other case was a item test for a OEM and that was according to a specification. I can see if I have the actual number.

You'll need the CSI 555 strobe. As the package "A0555-30 Computerized strobe light package for 2130" you will find the product data sheet at http://www2.emersonprocess.com...130_ds_555strobe.pdf Note that it is made by Monarch Instruments (see http://www.monarchinstrument.com/product.php?ID=35 ) so it might be worthwhile to compare prices.

So no good answers here. So I called Emerson support and they don't even know how this 555 works. I had to send him and email so he could ask some one else. I want this to work like an IRD 350. Walk up while running, take a reference run. Don't have to stop the machine and put tape on. 3 Runs on this machine took 2 Days. The 350 works great, but how long can you rely on that. If strobe works the same it would be great. I never used a strobe with CSI but with a datapac. Not even sure if the...

Re: CSI 2130 and Strobe

CSI never intended for it to work like a 350. I started my career with a 350 and balancing was pretty much a pain. As soon as I saw my first digital analyzer with a TTL tach I never looked back. But what you want may be possible, or at least I think it would work with a 444 strobe. There is a strobe adapter that attaches to the DB25 port, and there was a cable that connected from the adapter to the 444. You brought a spectrum up in monitor mode, placed the cursor on a peak and "marked" it,...

Re: CSI 2130 and Strobe

JBALKO, CSI used to manufacture their own strobe, the 444. It is fairly large and somewhat heavy, but it is also built like a Sherman tank, and will do all sorts of things. They cost about $4000 at the time (20 yrs ago), but there is nothing else like them. I "know a guy" who has a bunch of these - some in mint condition - that could be purchased at a very reasonable price. If your're interested, drop me a line: precisn at suddenlink dot net

As for lazy, far from it. Before I came here I read all of those posts and flyers. I called Monarch, CTC and I spent a couple hours...

JBALCO, my apologies to you then. It's frustrating that so many here don't even Google a problem before they start asking for help. I'm pretty sure your 2130 is not going to trigger your strobe like a 350. It's not meant to. There are much better ways of doing things now. It's the digital age.

Re: CSI 2130 Base Firmware Downgrade and Problem Firmware

If I understand what you are saying, You had the meter running with version 7.3.xx and reloaded the older version 5.5.xx. Now the meter will not run basically, anything. Is this correct? Have you tried to uninstall the old version and re-install the version which was in the meter before the problem began? Sounds like the old version just does not recognize anything, maybe because the old version is not compatible with the new version programs left behind in the meter when the old version...

The OP stated: "HI - How do you set 2130 to use a strobe and does it have to be the Monarch Nova dvx style?" There are two possible answers to your question based on how you intend to use the strobe with the analyzer. 1) Any strobe light (like Nova DVX) that provides a TTL pulse output signal can be connected to the tachometer input of the analyzer (BNC connector on the 2120 analyzer). The strobe light is first adjusted to show/freeze motion at 1X shaft speed, and then the analyzer will...

As I understand it, the strobe should fire of the accelerometer. That signal coming in should send out a tach signal to the analyzer. I believe analyzer should collect accelerometer and tach data at the same time. Unsuccessful so far.

I finally received the 555 manual, which is basically the user manual for the Novastrobe VBX. I also learned you must have the special CABLE. CSI would sell it but so does CTC (about 300.00). The cable plugs in to the collector and has 2 cables split from it. One for tach and one for accel. I'm not sure if the tach fires from the collector or somehow from the accel via the tach? Maybe that's why the tach cost 2600.00 from monarch (plus cable) and 4300.00 from Emerson. As you will see this...

Finally got the accelerometer signal to the 2130 analyzer. Had to use two jumpers to make the wiring like the original CSI cable where it plugs into the unit. I also got the Monarch VBX to work, kind of. It would lock on to the signal, but was off by about 100 RPM. More research needed on that.
