PeakVue samples using triaxial sensors and CSI 2140

Alexis Herrera ·
Hi everyone, Have anybody tried to collect PeakVue samples using triaxial sensors and the CSI 2140? I have read the specs for the Emerson triaxial sensor A0643TX-EX, where said : "Reduce route collection time up to 50% by simultaneously collecting three axis measurements (horizontal, vertical, axial) — plus PeakVue™ measurements — using one button push on the CSI 2140 four-channel analyzer. " However, I'm not sure if using the triaxial sensors I'm able to collect Standard and PeakVue samples...

It can probably be done but i wouldn't advice it. The accelerometer on the main axis is much better than the other 2 at high frequencies (10khz freq range instead of 3.5kHZ) and you have less rigidity in those directions. I setup my route to have PeakVue and a high frequency Spectrum/TWF on the main axis and lower frequencies on the 2 other axis.

You should be able to assign group & channel pairings in Database Setup.

I agree with Beatnik, Emerson only recommends doing Peakvue on the A channel as the other two orientations have a lower frequency range. That really isn't an issue as they only recommend a single Peakvue reading per bearing.

ERROR MESSAGE APPEARED ON CSI-2140

Garry Kristen ·
Hi, I cannot understand this message on CSI -2140?? this message comes to screen several times before data acquisition when i press the enter after mounting sensor. even i have created a good database according to equipment's description e.g rpm. kw amp load etc in AMS Suit

You cannot have a peakvue measurement where your Fmax (upper frequency in the Spectrum parameter) is higher than the High pass filter (HP filter setting in signal processing parm). You can see it up in database setup in the AP sets. it usually happens when the Upper frequency is in orders. You can either lower it or put in in Hertz/CPM.

In addition to what others have mentioned, think about your Triax Accel A channel having the best response due to the pull of the 2 pole magnet in that axis. You will lose a decent amount of your Peakvue data trying to get it from the B or C channels. We have even experienced some signal difference from our switch over from single axis data acquisition because we are taking either the horizontal or vertical in a different location from the single channel accel on route data. So we have a...

Trying to set up separate input on CSI 2140

CSPEngineer ·
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...

What kind powering scheme used on sensor for the termination box? Even it's cord grip input, you have to ensure is it: A . constantly powered most common - the sensor is used for monitoring to do protection and also route survey for condition monitoring by taking fft. If constantly powered, you should use the volt input B . unpowered (have to be powered by the portable data collector) less common - sensor installed on hard to reach place only for routine survey. If unpowered you have to use...

CSI 2140 VS VibXpert

Peerapong ·
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.

Thank you for the information. My setup is option B where power is needed from the CSI 2140. I will just modify the route to group these locations together so I just have to change the sensor cable just once. I will also keep in mind that I can only use the D channel on the second input if I want to do single point measurements without removing the triax.

Re: CSI 2140 VS VibXpert

I worked with a Vibexpert II for 5 years and switched jobs. I've now been working with the CSI 2140 for 6 months. In my opinion the vibexpert II is better suited for the experienced analyst. It's not the most user friendly unit, but it can do anything you need and everything is adjustable. The 2140 is more "dummy proof" it tries to do a lot of things for you. I find it a hassle to diagnose equipment that is not part of a vibration route with the 2140. The manual analyze mode is horrible, and...

I know your issue. We also are using triax for regular data collection, however we still have single channel switch boxes on the routes. Our work around for this issue was using the CTC CMX2138 adapter along with a cord to our triax with their safety break-a-way on it. That way we can quick disconnect at the safety break-a-way and then plug in a bnc cord on the adapter to the switch box for those readings and then just plug the reconnect the safety break-a-way to continue with the route. You...

I'm not real familiar with the 2140 so just a guess that when doing a gearbox, you input the tooth counts, which then set up filters to include mesh frequency.

John, I Hit yes then analyzer automatically set prefilter settings and acquires data. but I also press alt key and entered the new rpm as per machine specification. I changed analysis parameters settings but when ever i want to take gearbox readings this message still appears? why?

Why don't you hit the "Yes" button as suggested on the screen shot, then go in and look at the setup to see what has changed. Then ask yourself "why" so you learn from the experience.

As John stated if you configure the machine with all of the pertinent parameters the software will do the work for you. If that is not the case calculate estimated highest GMF of interest manually and setup the point accordingly to eliminate the annoying error messages. There are quite a few PeakVue instruction papers out on the web that give detailed instructions on point setups.

It is telling you that your high pass filter you have selected in your database is too low, and gives you the option of selecting yes and the analyzer will automatically select next higher filter. As above posters have said, you need to take a look at your highest fault frequencies ex: BPFI capture of 4 harmonics or Gear mesh frequency and however many harmonics of that you wish to capture.For example, if your FMAX is higher than your filter selected then you will see this message. Say your...

2140 Loading with Thumb Drive

HI The 2130 allowed you to copy files to collector through a thumb drive mounted to the usb. Can 2140 Do this? 2140 only has micro usb. I tried and it did not work. Thinking I did something wrong or is this not an option.

AMS Machinery Health Software Issue (CSI)

Huddle_House ·
Hi, i need to see if anyone can help me. We had a server crash and I lost database and all current data back to Oct 2016. My manager was able to recover everything but lost a years worth of data and database settings, parameters, etc. I still have all of my routes and a limited data on my 2140. Is there a way to load my current database (with settings) back into the software from my 2140 or at least print all of my database information from the 2140 so I can update recovered software to...

Re: AMS Machinery Health Software Issue (CSI)

Ralph Stewart ·
Huddle House, It appears no one has a solution to the recovery of the data from your 2140, in the way you mentioned. I am guessing you have tried the "force dump" function, huh? But I do not think even that will recover AP sets or the like. How did you recover the data you mentioned from "back to October 2016"? Was it from the last "backup"? What type storage "disk" did the server have, HDD or some other form? If it had a HDD and it is not completely and physically destroyed, there may be a...

Setting up a vibration route on a centac compressor

Wayne0637 ·
We are currently trying to set up a vibration route for our Centac compressors on our CSI 2140. In the past using our ENTEK equipment we used a high frequency transducer for the bull gear and each stage of the compressor. However, using the wizard in AMS machinery manager it doesn't ask us to change transducers. Does anyone have any experience using CSI equipment for readings on a Centac compressor?

2140 Live waveform question

xprmntl1 ·
I guess I have never noticed this on my 2130 or 2140, but when i'm taking a point reading my live data shows the waveform in in/sec. But saved waveforms are in acceleration/G's? I have combed through every setting and don't see an option to change this, or maybe i'm just missing something and it's supposed to integrate for averaging? I just cant understand why when taking data I cant view it in its saved form of acceleration.

40+ views and no replies, so let me be the first, although I can't help you with your AMS/CSI 2140 specific questions.. Centac's are usually equipped with proximity probes and often permanent monitoring. Do you propose to monitor this machine in a walk around program?

Re: Setting up a vibration route on a centac compressor

John Yes we are looking to monitor it with a walk around program as well as the permanent monitoring. Both compressors do have proximity probes on the 3 stages. This is more of a double check as these are vital to the operation of our plant.

Having used both CSI and Pruftechnik systems extensively as well as Entek (Rockwell) I can add the following: The VibXpert II unit itself has an easier "flow" with machine visuals for adhoc one off analysis capabilities. So if your a troubleshooter only doing one off inspections this unit has strong bang for the buck. The VibXpert II is a strong performer for balancing with easy visuals as is the 2140 however has two channels not 4 like the 2140. Emerson AMS suite (CSI) is FAR superior in...

Re: correct sensitivity for the clamp

Are you referring to the current measuring clamp for motor's electrical signature? If it is so, this setup requires a special configuration which (I believe) is explained in the data collector manual. Regards- Ali M. Al-Shurafa
