Field programmable vibration sensor with HART integration
Meggitt’s programmable PCH420V vibration sensor is designed to provide information about changes in machinery health. They are also designed to easily integrate with existing networks for quick visibility without the expense of additional infrastructure or cable networks. The PCH420V transmitter also allows vibration data to be accessed by HART-enabled process controllers and information systems for improved predictive diagnostic capabilities. They are powered by the network for continuous coverage, unlike wireless solutions which only offer snapshots of asset performance and utilize batteries that require frequent replacement. Multi-drop installations enable up to 16 sensors to be monitored through a single address port. Three user configurable bands allow targeted measurements to identify machine faults such as unbalance, alignment, looseness or bearing wear conditions.
