New Improved Online Condition Monitoring System for Industrial Machinery

The Schaeffler Group’s maintenance management and condition monitoring division, Schaeffler Industrial Aftermarket Services has launched an improved version of its FAG DTECT X1 online condition monitoring system. The new system is more compact than its predecessor and offers increased functionality and flexibility.

The new individual modules – the monitoring unit and the multiplexer – are now integrated in a single, compact unit that offers a high degree of flexibility for end users. The new FAG DTECT X1 s is suitable for a wide range of industrial vibration monitoring applications.

Unlike its predecessor, the new system combines all control modules into a single compact housing, which measures just 260 x 150 x 90mm, enabling easy installation in control cabinets. The integrated multiplexer enables the recording of signals from up to eight different sensors.

The FAG DTECT X1 s can save up to 16 separate monitoring tasks and execute these automatically. The system is protected to IP67 and can therefore be installed in harsh environments, in ambient temperatures from –20 deg C to + 70 deg C.

The system monitors vibration conditions, which if left undetected, can cause costly unplanned shutdowns of plant and machinery. These conditions include damage to bearings and gears, as well as shaft misalignments. If a specified threshold value or alarm limit is exceeded, the system triggers an alarm. The vibration monitoring data can be analysed directly on site at the central control station or this data can be retrieved via a TCP/IP communications link and analysed by either the end user or by Schaeffler Industrial Aftermarket Services. This means that operators can make changes to system parameters remotely from anywhere in the world.

The FAG DTECT X1 s is designed for use in a wide range of industrial environments, including the monitoring of rotating components and machines such as bearings, gearboxes, compressors, fans, pumps, rolling stands, paper mills and drives.

All commonly used acceleration, speed and displacement sensors can be connected to the FAG DTECT X1 s system, enabling process parameters such as speed, temperature, torque and pressure to be monitored.
