Sensonics describes its DN26 G3 machinery protection monitor as compact, cost-effective and capable of monitoring two channels of bearing vibration, shaft vibration or shaft position. The DN26 G3 module mounts on DIN rail and has been designed specifically for machine monitoring and protection applications such as fans, pumps, motors, centrifuges, turbines or any small to medium-sized industrial machinery requiring reliable protection.
The high-performance DN26 G3 offers fully programmable signal conditioning with a range of measurement algorithms and sensor modes, including absolute vibration, relative vibration and shaft position (or thrust bearing wear). In addition, the module offers a dedicated speed monitor channel that can also be utilised as a phase reference for harmonic analysis of the vibration signals.
Sensonics says the machine condition monitoring module is designed to be very versatile, as it can be configured as a universal module for all measurements, it is field-upgradable, it can be programmed for warning and danger alarms, and it can monitor the integrity of transducers. It is available with mains or +24V power supply options, Ethernet communications, and can be set-up through the inbuilt web server or via the front panel.
The sensor interface is programmable to accept IEPE type accelerometers/velometers, proximity probes (API 670 standard), and active/passive speed probes.
All sensor signals are available via a buffered interface that provides the option of further detailed analysis if required. Three alarm relays are available, one dedicated to indicate module and sensor integrity, while the other two relays are fully programmable across the alarm criteria selected. All three input channels' measured values are available via a 4-20mA interface.
Each DN26 G3 module features a built-in intuitive colour LCD display and menu facility to provide immediate viewing and access to settings and the machine parameters.
