Fault-finding modules

Two new modules extend the Allen-Bradley Entek XM series of distributed protection and monitoring tools.

Information gathered by the modules allows maintenance personnel to identify development faults and correct problems before downtime events occur, thus preventing impacts to production and safety. Because the XM series leverages the plant's existing control architecture, users are able to reduce wiring by as much as 80%.

The XM-220 dual speed module monitors machine speed and related parameters such as direction of rotation and acceleration. It is suitable for rotary equipment such as centrifuges and turbines since it measures rotor acceleration and peak speed. In addition, it detects zero speed, locked rotor and reverse rotation.

The XM-123 aeroderivative module meets the monitoring requirements of the majority of engines on the market, including gas turbine designs. These have typically required specialised solutions to address the inherent noise these machines generate. The wide compatibility of XM-123 allows users to purchase and support just one monitor for all their aeroderivative machine monitoring applications.
