New mobile energy-measurement case
Delphin Technology AG has developed a mobile energy-measurement case for acquiring and processing energy measurement data. The measurement case is able to acquire digital impulses from electricity, gas and water meters. It has an integrated 3-phase power measuring unit for measuring the electrical power from motors, pumps, drives etc. Energy data from PLC or control systems can also be acquired via field bus interfaces such as PROFIBUS or ModBus.
The mobile device will benefit those users tasked with analysing or recording energy data as well as service providers commissioned by clients to carry out energy measurements.
The energy-measurement case is configured via LAN and can then function independently – thanks to its integrated data memory capable of storing several million measurement values. The case can be equipped with a UMTS-modem to enable wireless operation.
An option is also available for using high-speed analog inputs enabling process analysis from raw energy measurement data. High-speed analog inputs also enable network analysis and the detection of faults or peak levels.
The case can be supplied with Rogowski coils so that power and current data can be acquired non-invasively.
Online and offline analysis of the energy data is performed using the ProfiSignal Go software which portrays data as a y(t) diagram. The logic-analysis diagram is capable of displaying each measured impulse with faults being easy to identify.
A New Dimension in Vibration Measurement
Delphin Technology have achieved yet another milestone in vibration measurement technology. We are proud to present the brand new Expert Vibro device. The Expert Vibro has many excellent features that set it apart from its competitors:
- Vibration measurement is made easy with Expert Vibro. Intuitive configuration enables fast implementation and short commissioning times.
- Expert Vibro makes many vibration-technology applications now affordable. Expert Vibro can be used instead of complex and expensive systems.
- New types of applications are now possible that had previously been cost ineffective.
- Expert Vibro is equipped the latest processor technology to provide it with enormous reserves of power for online computations and analysis.
- Vibration data can undergo simultaneous monitoring, recording and analysis.
Expert Vibro applications
- Monitoring of shaft vibrations on turbines, super-chargers, engines and compressors
- Monitoring and analysis of bearing vibration and wear
- Data acquisition and analysis of pressure vibrations and other transient signals
- Measurement data acquisition from drives
- Continuous operation in industrial plants and test stands
- Remote monitoring of plant and machinery
Expert Vibro measures, monitors and records fully independently. Expert Vibro uses an internal storage memory to give users enhanced data security and system reliability.
Universal inputs and outputs
The compact Expert Vibro is equipped with 16 synchronous analog inputs with sampling rates of up to 50kHz per channel. A 24-bit A/D converter ensures high-precision measurement. All channels are galvanically isolated to prevent transverse distortions. Via software, users are able to switch the analog inputs between voltage, IEPE and shaft vibration measurement. Integrated comparators and digital inputs enable flexible triggering.
Includes monitoring functions
Measurement data is monitored "on the fly" with the switching in milliseconds of up to 8 digital outputs. Characteristic values or raw time signals from any of the analog inputs can be output to 2 analog outputs.
PLC and PC interfaces
Expert Vibro can be connected to PCs via LAN or USB. Two PROFIBUS interfaces are available as well as Modbus TCP for fieldbus connections. Multiple Expert Vibro devices can be synchronized to process vibration data from many channels.
Modular analysis functions
Versatile software channels enable Expert Vibro to be used for complex analysis and monitoring tasks. Characteristic values can be determined from time signals and spectra. Spectra are computed online (FFT) and recorded along with time signals and characteristic values. A modular system allows users to set up their own analysis functions for the required channels. Functions include high and low band pass filters, integrators, FFT algorithms and many more. Expert Vibro is fully compatible with the ProfiSignal software and can be used in conjunction with the "Vibro" option.
Independent operation and remote connection
Expert Vibro has a built-in data storage capability to enable independent operation. The memory can record raw time signals as well as spectra and characteristic values. Optional WLAN, UMTS or LTE modules are available for standalone operation. Antennae can be connected via SMA sockets. The Expert Vibro's touchdisplay shows important configuration or measurement data.
More applications and more efficiency from ProfiMessage
New internal functions have extended the range of ProfiMessage applications with new options available for measurement data acquisition, process monitoring and analysis.
The ProfiMessage devices now have improved performance for measurement data acquisition as well as for full process monitoring and analysis. Measurement data can now undergo validation, computation and evaluation prior to being stored to the device's internal memory. Data acquisition is quicker with data being directly converted into meaningful characteristic values. Systems are now even quicker at delivering vital and easy to read information. Software channels are available to compute, integrate and differentiate data, to determine statistical characteristic values and to monitor every measurement value.
Lab and test stand procedures can be configured into ProfiMessage devices and performed independently. Users are able to easily generate the number of software channels they require. Configuration is performed using DataService/Configurator software. This software is simple to use and requires no specialist programming knowledge. New link options help users to structure and organize their software channels.
Serial port configuration with ASCII protocols has been upgraded and is now available to any user. Separate protocols can be created, saved and loaded for each required port.
