Bearing Temperature Trip and Time Delay
I'd like to hear from you about your protection philosophy of critical machinery on bearing temperatures. Do you use bearing temperatures as an ESD input to automatically shutdown your machines? If yes, does the temperature protection logic involve any time delay? If yes, how much is it?
At the place where I work, currently we use bearing temperatures as shutdown points with 0 seconds time delay and considering relaxing this a bit.
Please share your thoughts.
