Condition monitoring systems provide continuous information about equipment operation, which allows for prediction and prevention of mechanical and electrical problems. They are usually composed of sensors, controls, and encoders that monitor vibrations, temperatures, speed, and other conditions continuously or at regular intervals. They provide integrated diagnostics and information about overall system health. Condition monitoring helps operators interpret component behavior in real-time allowing for adjustments for optimal efficiency.
By avoiding unplanned damage, condition monitoring systems can lead to decreased downtime and fewer problems with lost productivity and repair costs.
