Emerson Ovation Machinery Health Monitor

Friday, 23 October, 2015 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions


Having to manage and maintain multiple disparate systems is complex and time-consuming, and can potentially threaten plant availability. To help address these concerns, Emerson now offers its power generation and water/wastewater industry customers a native machinery health monitoring and protection capability within the Ovation distributed control system.

The Ovation Machinery Health Monitor leverages the power of the Ovation platform through a high-performance I/O module dedicated to machinery health functions. With installation as simple as inserting the module into a spare I/O slot, the health monitor eliminates the risks, time and costs typically associated with configuring and integrating two separate systems. Eliminating the need to integrate stand-alone vibration and health monitoring systems reduces potential points of failure, increasing equipment and process reliability.

Operators receive alerts from a single set of common plant HMIs and no longer need to manually check machinery functions through a separate system. By eliminating synchronisation across multiple systems and using familiar Ovation tools, configuration and upgrades are faster and less complex. The ability to troubleshoot and analyse data is also enhanced through the use of Ovation alarming, trending, historical data collection and sequence-of-events monitoring functions.

The health monitor reduces the risk of cyber attack by eliminating links to stand-alone systems and isolating process information. Delivering control, machinery protection and predictive health monitoring on a single, common platform not only improves asset performance, but also reduces spare parts inventory, maintenance, training and upgrade time.
