CSI2130 pin assignment for pocket laser tach

eisenhans ·
Hi everyone, I want to use a pocket laser tach with the csi2130. Does anyone know the pin assignment at the plug of the CSI2600 ? The pocket laser tach has 2 wires for the positive TTL-Signal. Wich pins are to use ? Thanks

Thanks for the link. It looks like it would work great but I don't know how well it would hold up being permanently mounted in the field given the conditions it would be under. Does anyone have any experience using a magnetic pick up like a proximity switch? I believe it would last for a long time and be easy to install, if it would be compatible with the 2140.

Not sure if your concern is about a light/laser tach pickup performance & longevity in the presence of high ambient heat, high shock loads, high humidity/atmosphere (i.e. something affecting reflected light), etc. but my best advice is to talk to the manufacturers about their specs and designs. In regards to prox/magnetic pickups, I (like many members of this forum) have used these type of probes in the past. They are often used in permanent monitoring situations such as you intend. They...

Need advice for permanent tach.

crazywesc ·
    I am currently in the process of improving the vibration program in the steel mill where I work. We are currently starting fresh with CSI and I am using this opportunity to set up things right from the start. Currently for all of the main mill drives on VFD's we are taking periodic vibration data when production is down so we can run the drives at a constant speed. I am remoting out all the motors and gearboxes to a switch box so we can collect data while the mill is in...

Pseudo tach for variable input speeds

Nosreme ·
I'm trying to use the pseudo tach feature when collecting data for an intermediate shaft in the gearbox using CSI2140. The motor constantly changes its speeds while running (ramps up, slows down and stop to make one cycle) controlled by a VFD. Will the pseudo tach feature work on this application? I put in the correct input/output ratio or tooth count but the detected running speed of the intermediate shaft in the software doesn't seem to be correct. Will the pseudo tach work on variable...

I can't say specific to 2140, but in the olden days: Do you have a tachometer on the motor shaft? If yes, then for machine setup choose Enter Speed only Once = No, and Check/select on Fixed Tach Location The Motor shaft speed Reference and each measurement point Reference (ratio accordingly) are part of the Measurement Point setup. The intermediate measurement points on gearbox would then have the speed ratio to the actual motor speed. It would be wise to make all measurements on machine at...

"Using "fixed tach location", will the speed of the intermediate shaft be changed proportionally based on the ratio added to the reference RPM? As I'm using a tachometer, will the software auto calculate the speed of the intermediate shaft based on the ratio?" Yes. For example: Motor Reference speed is 1800 and Fan Reference speed is 900 rpm (0.5 ratio). Say actual motor speed from Tach is 1600 rpm (overwrites 1800), then fan speed would be scaled to 800 rpm when measurement is made. No...

My previous comments are probably good for route measurements. Here is a description of the fabulous Pseudo Tach: https://reliabilitymobile.com/...hometer_Analyze.html From this list: https://reliabilitymobile.com/csi2140/index.html Walt

Yes and I did read the formula "(Incoming tachometer frequency) X (( tach frequency X the number of teeth on the tached shaft)/number of teeth on the pseudo shaft)" Does anyone know what this tach frequency is?

Thanks a lot for the clarification on the fixed tach location feature.

Re: Pseudo tach for variable input speeds

Thanks all. Yes, I use a tachometer to measure the motor speed at the motor outboard cooling fan (this is the only place to measure the motor speed). Even if the machine RPM is put in as 1720 RPM (for example), this is never the true turning speed and the motor changes its speeds while collecting data. Using "fixed tach location", will the speed of the intermediate shaft be changed proportionally based on the ratio added to the reference RPM? As I'm using a tachometer, will the software auto...

Either way, the ratio or tooth count used. As the intermediate shaft cannot be directly tached, I attempted to use the pseudo tach option while taching the motor shaft. If the motor has constant running speed then the pseudo tach will work based on the correct given speed ratio or tooth count. What about a motor that is changing its running speeds while collecting data, will the Pseudo tach somehow show the order tracked running speed as the motor shaft is being tached

I'm not familiar with what you are asking about but have to ask if you can input the ratio as an actual tooth count as opposed to the ratio? In addition, very often the ratio is not correct as stated and should be verified.

" F2 Pseudo Tach "Enable Pseudo Tach for time synchronous averaging or order tracking intermediate shafts in gearboxes that cannot be accessed directly. Use the Pseudo Tach to produce the turning speed signal. The analyzer uses the following formula: (Incoming tachometer frequency) X ((tach frequency X the number of teeth on the tached shaft)/number of teeth on the pseudo shaft). Disable Pseudo Tach when you can use the tachometer directly on a shaft. The default is Disabled." I guess CSI...
