PLANTSCAN, a new low-cost multichannel
Vibration & Temperature Monitor
Sensonics has introduced the new Plantscan MC9601,
a multichannel on-line plant condition monitor of vibration
and temperature levels, providing constant multi-point
surveillance and real time protection of rotating machines
such as pumps, mills, motors, compressors, conveyors,
etc. to avoid costly mechanical breakdowns.
Plantscan is available in various configurations from 2 to 8 channels
of vibration and/or temperature and is particularly suited to monitoring
machines with rotational speeds between 200 and 10,000 rpm and
incorporating either sleeve or rolling element bearings.
The vibration and temperature sensors fitted to the machine are
powered by Plantscan and their signals scanned for approximately
5 seconds with the level being compared to preset dual alarm levels.
If the levels are exceeded, an alarm relay is triggered and a highly
visible LED illuminated on the front panel. Both A1 (alert) and
A2 (danger) levels are individually adjustable for each channel
and activate alarm relays.
Plantscan is powered with either 110 or 220 Vac and provides
continuous selectable analogue outputs from each channel for
data recording, with a choice of 4-20mA, 0-10mA, 0-5V or 0-10V.
The dynamic signals for each channel are also available for data
The monitor is housed in a rugged steel wall-mounted and lockable
enclosure rated to IP66, making it suitable for installation in hostile
plantside environments, either inside or outdoors.
A window is incorporated into the enclosure door through which
the high visibility LEDs and LCD digital display can be viewed.
