Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring

Collecting and analysing data is becoming increasingly important in today's world. With the "Vibration Monitoring" function integrated into the frequency inverter, the INVEOR helps to keep a constant eye on the condition of the system and take the step towards predictive maintenance.

Why vibration monitoring?

  • Production plants consist of many individual components.
  • Each of these components is susceptible to wear and mechanical problems that can lead to defects and, in the worst case, to a complete shutdown of the system.
  • To prevent such defects, systems are normally serviced at fixed intervals.
  • It would be more economical to maintain the system as required rather than at fixed intervals.
  • The vibrations measured in the system are a key indicator of the need for maintenance.
  • Continuous monitoring of the system through "Vibration Monitoring" enables precise identification of maintenance requirements, thus minimising costs and productivity restrictions.

Vibration monitoring - The smart fitness tracker for your system

  • Vibration Monitoring" monitors your application during operation for irregularities caused by vibration.
  • Like a fitness tracker that monitors your heart rate, INVEOR keeps a constant eye on the "state of health" of your system.
  • Potential problems such as progressive wear or the imminent failure of mechanical components can be recognised at an early stage.
  • The "Vibration Monitoring" feature is integrated directly into the frequency inverter. Compared to the competition, there is no need to purchase and install a sensor separately. This saves time and money.
  • Vibration monitoring is already available as an option in the MPP and is still being planned for the INVEOR MPM.

Getting started with predictive maintenance

  • “Vibration Monitoring" records vibrations in the application.
  • A PT1000 resistance temperature sensor can be used to monitor temperatures from -20°C to +250°C in the application.
  • In addition to this data, the following actual values and process variables available in the inverter can be monitored: Target frequency, actual frequency, mechanical speed, motor current, motor voltage, all digital and analogue I/Os, torque, motor power, operating time, customer-specific PLC output variables.
  • The data provided can be transferred to a terminal device or the cloud via fieldbus (EthernetIP, ProfiNet) or MQTT
  • Data analysis with INVERTERapp or INVERTERpc software
  • Early detection of anomalies and countermeasures - your entry into predictive maintenance.

Advantages for the customer

  • Function completely integrated into the frequency inverter
  • Reduction of downtimes
  • Reduction in maintenance costs
  • Optimum utilisation of the system's service life
  • Increase the reliability and efficiency of the system
  • All process variables from a single source
  • Future-proof and fit for predictive maintenance
