Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley Dynamix 1444Used as a machinery protection system for rotating and reciprocating equipment, the Dynamix 1444 series monitors critical operating parameters in real time. They also provide operations and maintenance personnel with the information to assess current equipment health and perform predictive-maintenance planning. Unlike other condition-monitoring solutions, the Dynamix 1444 condition monitoring is tightly integrated with the control system. This eliminates the need for extra hardware and allows manufacturers to leverage existing investments in visualization and information solutions to improve productivity and lower total cost of ownership.

To protect equipment, the Dynamix 1444 device measures and monitors a machine's critical dynamic and position parameters, and assures appropriate actions are performed, with the precision, reliability and performance needed to meet industry and regulatory standards.

For general condition monitoring, the Dynamix 1444 series monitors offer unprecedented signal processing and measurement capabilities enabling users to detect and identify the faults and status across all classes of industrial machinery. Information can also be sent to plant- and enterprise-wide databases for storage and trending. Armed with this information, engineers can take appropriate maintenance action—such as replacing worn-out components before they fail—protecting production and equipment while reducing maintenance costs.
