Protect your critical machinery and on-site personnel with SIL 2 rated vibration monitors from PCH Engineering.
Even a few hours’ downtime in critical machinery can mean a great loss in production and man hours – not to mention the cost of repairs and spare parts. Monitoring vibrations gives you early warning of any misalignments. This helps prevent machine breakdowns and ensures continuity of production.
The vibration monitors measure critical frequencies in rotating machinery such as pumps, blowers, decanters and wind turbines. This continuous monitoring of the machine’s condition minimises the risk of costly breakdowns.
Most of our monitors are SIL 2 rated with MTTF(D), FIT, PFH(D) and DC diagnostic coverage numbers available.
Local safety with built-in alarms
The slightest imbalance or misalignment can cause great damage to a machine and its bearings.
That is why our vibration monitors have a built-in alarm function which can detect any machine faults and warn the operator before they cause breakdowns.
You can even configure an automatic shut-down function for added local safety.
Vibration Monitors for Industry 4.0 environments and Predictive Maintenance
With the PCH Cloud Solution, you get a condition monitoring solution suitable for the smart factory of the future.
In addition to the local safety of a traditional vibration monitoring solution (including relays integrated in your safety chain and real-time data), you get online data access, visualisation tools, FFT analysis and safe cloud storage of your data.See how the PCH Cloud Solution can help protect your critical machinery here.
Collect trend data or perform FFT analyses
The PCH vibration monitors are the perfect addition to your condition monitoring or predictive maintenance program. You can collect scalar values and real-time time-stream / waveform recordings with the complementary PCH Vibration Studio software.
You can also transfer data to a SCADA or PLC solution using communication protocols like CAN Open, ModBus or ProfiNet, made available as 4-20 mA / 0-5V signals.
Store the data locally with a PCH Datalogger module or our OPC server, or send it to a cloud database for remote access.
It is possible to make a fourier transformation (FFT) of time-recordings and identify vibration frequencies affecting your machine performance. The analysis can be done on site or at a remote location after data transfer using our PCH EtherBridge. Data can be treated locally or in the cloud.
Fully certified monitors made in Denmark
All PCH vibration monitors and sensors are developed and produced in Denmark by our experienced engineers.
