Intellinova® units are designed to work in a branched structure. Each terminal controls from 6 to 32 measuring points using vibration and shock pulse analysis techniques.
A centralised system capable of managing several units via both cable and wifi connection includes the data processing software.
The systems can be monitored by following the status of the machines from the synoptic panel or by generating alarms for the company system, via email or mobile phone messages to the reference technicians.
Scalability is the strength of the SPM Instrument systems: it is possible to start with a small system with 8 measuring points and gradually expand it to an integrated system with hundreds of sensors scattered in several areas of the plant.
Where it is not possible to use ethernet or wifi networks, it is possible to use the cellular network connection for the management and downloading of measurement data.
The phases of design, installation and management of a fixed vibration analysis and Shock Pulse Industry 4.0 system
The ideal solution to constantly monitor both vibration and Shock Pulse spectrum of the critical points of your systems.
The Intellinova® project for remote or online condition monitoring will be developed following these steps:
The “Duotech” dual sensor by SPM Instrument
Vibrations and Shock Pulse in the same casing
“Duotech” is the sensor capable of integrating the HD SPM technique, specific for bearings, with other vibration intensity measurement techniques, with the incredible new HD ENV technology.
“Duotech” allows not only to assess rolling bearing damage but also to diagnose the lubrication condition.
The SPM method is in fact based on the interpretation of the “shock impulses”, i.e. ultrasounds that propagate in structures at over 30 kHz and which also allow the state of the lubricant to be accurately verified.
Innovators with Shock Pulse technology, which for decades has revolutionised early diagnosis on rolling bearings, today SPM Instrument is on the market with two innovative products.
“Airius” is SPM Instrument’s innovative Wifi vibration sensor, specific for systems where wiring is complex or impossible, such as in automatic warehouses, robots or AGV shuttles, and much more.
Thanks to the scalable architecture of the Intellinova® systems, “Airius” can be easily integrated into an existing system together with other Intellinova® modules or directly connected to a processing unit with the Condmaster Ruby® software.
In addition to vibration analysis, “Airius” is able to measure the temperature of surfaces on which it is installed, for even more complete and effective diagnosis.
The “Airius” wifi sensor from SPM Instrument
The SPM method, now in the most advanced SPM HD version, was created using specific sensors that resonate at 32 kHz, designed to precisely identify the ultrasonic pulses that damaged or poorly lubricated bearings transmit to materials: these signals are detected at frequencies above 30 kHz.
The HD ENV method, on the other hand, uses “vibration envelope” techniques to detect all the weak signals that bearings and gears transmit to the machinery when damage begins to occur.
With the use of advanced algorithms and digital filters, today’s HD and HD ENV SPM methods are capable of detecting damage in bearings and gears that even work at 1 RPM and identifying bearing failures as early as phase 1.
