MACHINE CONDITION MONITORING & DIAGNOSIS
Machine condition monitoring operations increasingly require the accurate monitoring of electrical signals, vibration, noise, strain and other physical signals in remote or inaccessible locations. The machine condition monitoring systems may also be subject to extreme environmental conditions. The user may be hundreds of miles away from multiple machine condition monitoring sites, yet needs to look at the data in real time, make adjustments to measurement parameters, and capture and download the complete recorded signals. The compact form factor of the CoCo-80 and CoCo-90, with their superb dynamic signal analysis capability and real-time recording, along with advances in wireless communication technology make this possible. The quick acceptance of 2.5G and 3G wireless networks have increased the cost-effectiveness of deploying remote monitoring systems worldwide.
While the user can fully take the advantage of the CoCo’s graphical user interface on site, the CoCo is also a standalone network based device. When the CoCo is connected with a wireless modem, it communicates with the user through a secure internet connection. This simple integrated solution is far more cost-effective than PC-based solutions. The complete remote condition monitoring system can be described in the following diagram as an example:
