CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer provides complete tool for assessing and preserving mechanical equipment health
KNOXVILLE,TENN (June 17, 2013) – Emerson Process Management has introduced the CSI2140 Machinery Health Analyzer, the next generation of its portable tool for analyzing machinery vibration to detect potential problems before they lead to unplanned downtime.
The new analyzer builds on the capabilities of Emerson’s popular CSI 2130 to provide new four-channel simultaneous data collection functionality, wireless and Bluetooth communication, and a full-color touchscreen. The CSI 2140 also delivers the fastest route collection capability on the market, enabling workers to spend more time on higher-value tasks.
The analyzer’s new ergonomic shape and lighter weight make data-collection routes easier on users. Data collection is over 50% faster than with other analyzers, minimizing the time spent in uncomfortable or dangerous environments and allowing technicians to complete the collection more quickly. The screen is easy to read in both direct sunlight and dark areas and auto-adjusts based on ambient lighting.
Because over 50 percent of mechanical issues are caused by bearing wear, effective monitoring of bearing health is a key component of a reliability program. With four-channel data collection, users can collect vertical, horizontal, and axial readings on a bearing at the same time. Using this data and Emerson’s unique PeakVue™ technology, reliability technicians can detect compromised bearing performance earlier than with any other measurement technique. In addition, advanced diagnostics embedded in the CSI 2140 help users drive to the root cause of mechanical issues.
Most vibration programs require a cabled connection to the plant asset database in order to upload data for analysis. The CSI 2140 can send collected data wirelessly from the field to the office. Technicians can then continue on their route – or start another route – without a return trip to the maintenance shop. The data is also available for analysis by specialists at corporate headquarters or other locations.
Additional CSI 2140 capabilities enable users to perform single, dual, or four-channel vibration analysis, cross-channel analysis, transient analysis, structural analysis, AC electric motor monitoring, and 4-plane dynamic balancing – providing a complete, easy-to-use tool for fast, accurate assessment of rotating machinery health.
