Emerson’s next-generation vibration analyzer enables faster data collection and analysis.
CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer provides complete tool for assessing and presenting mechanical equipment health.
Knoxville, Tennessee (June 17, 2013) – Emerson Process Management has introduced the CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer, the next generation of its portable tools for analyzing machinery vibration to detect potential problems before they lead to unplanned downtime.
The analyzer’s new ergonomic shap and lighter weight make data-collection routes easier on users. Data collection is over 50% faster than with other analyzers, minimizing the time spent in uncomfortable or dangerous environments and allowing technicians to complete the collection more quickly. The screen is easy to read in both direct sunlight and dark areas and auto-adjusts based on ambient lighting.
Because over 50% of mechanical issues are caused by bearing wear, effective monitoring of bearing health is a key component of a reliability program. With four-channel data collection, users can collect vertical, horizontal, and axial readings on a bearing at the same time. Using this data and Emerson’s PeakVue™ technology, reliability technicians can detect compromised bearing performance earlier than with any other measurement technique. In addition, advanced diagnostics embedded in the CSI 2140 helps users drive to the root cause of mechanical issues.
Most vibration programs require a cables connection to the plant asset database in order to upload data for analysis. The CSI 2140 can send collection data wirelessly from the field to the office. Technicians can then continue on their route-or start another route - without a return trip to the maintenance shop. The data is also available for analysis by specialist at corporate headquarters or other locations.
Additional CSI 2140 capabilities enable users to perform single, dual, or four-channel vibration analysis, cross-channel analysis, transient analysis, structural analysis, AC electric motor monitoring, and 4-plane dynamic balancing – providing a complete, easy to use toold for fast, accurate assessment of rotating machinery health.
