Southern Manufacturing, Farnborough, United Kingdom - Monitran, a world-leader in the development and manufacture of transducers for the measurement of vibration, displacement and proximity, has added ‘smart sensors’ to its MTN/2200 product range.
The new sensors, which carry the postfix ‘1Y’ to their current part numbers, conform to IEEE-P1451.4 (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet, or TEDS) and can be interrogated by reversing the polarity of their supply voltage. Typical data that can be programmed and read back include the manufacturer’s ID, device part number, serial number, sensitivity (as set by the OEM) and calibration data.
Donald Lyon, Managing Director of Monitran, comments: “These sensors are ideal for applications where multiple sensors are in use, and where measurements are typically collected in one place. In such circumstances, the rapid, positive and unique identification of sensors is essential.”
Industrial gears and gearboxes are critical to the smooth operation of most production environments and so maintaining these systems is often a high priority. If excess wear or damage is allowed to develop within a gearbox, this could result in secondary damage to other vital plant and machinery, leading to high repair costs, as well as costly production downtime.
The new FAG Wear Debris Monitor from Schaeffler (UK) Ltd is designed to solve these issues. This online condition monitoring system is capable of pinpointing the precise location of any damage or wear to gears, bearings and cages within a gearbox or other industrial gear unit. The system is therefore suitable for use in almost every industry sector, including wind power (gearbox drive train), marine (ship propulsion systems), oil and gas (top drives and draw works gearboxes), mining and quarrying (mills and rotary kilns), steel and aluminium (pinion stand gear units), pulp and paper (drying cylinder gears and wire drive roll gears).
