VMS-1001 - Platform

Vibrodiagnostic system

About VMS Platform

A failure of large power systems results always in economic losses due to breakdown of the electric supply immense repair costs. That is the reason for the monitoring and diagnostics of operational states of the machine components, and why it attracts more attention than ever before. The Vibration Monitoring System is a scalable diagnostics platform useful for multitude of methods based on analyzing the time of arrival of given events. Such methods include Blade Tip Timing for low-pressure turbine blades, torque measurement, acoustic localization of defects, or short detection of high-voltage lines.

Nevertheless, the problem itself is a quite sophisticated task to be done. The whole system chain composes of the sensors, amplifiers, signal processing and software with the algorithms and of coarse storage for the late analysis of the campaign.

Parameters

Parameter Value
Height 3U
Width 19"
Depth 275 mm
Number of channels per uit 16
Sampling frequency 100 MHz

HW Platform

The hardware platform (as seen at the top of this page) is composed of one MCU card that handles communication with outside world and from 1 to 16 Front-end cards each handling one sensor channel. Hence up to 16 sensor can be analyzed using a single VMS platform unit that leads to more cost-effective solution. A wiring and interconnection with the amplifiers is done via Rear End Card from backside of the unit. In special cases the interconnection on FE Card can be provided (see Photogallery). Signal conditioning is done via sensor amplifier.

Target applications

The VMS targets the field of vibration monitoring inside rotating machines (steam turbines, rotary pumps, compressors, etc.) where the high frequency sampling (up to 100 MHz) is needed for identification of the failure phenomena. Typical applications include vibrations in rotating components (blades), localization of cracks based on guided waves, motion of loose parts in rotating machines, etc.

 

The sampling capability of current systems cannot sufficiently detect impending damage early enough. Suitable system or technology for special cases (such as online monitoring of rotating shrouded blades) is not currently available on the market at all. The VMS system is bridging this gap.

VMS services

We understand that implementation of a new diagnostic system to rotating machines may not appear to be seamless at first sight. In order to relax the customer’s trepidation, we offer the following services that will help customer through the whole product life cycle.

  • Design and Customization — customer’s needs and preferences are included into the design and development phase, such as customized displays and data communication protocols
  • Installation — our engineers are available to be present on the site and participate in the installation process of sensors and VMS monitoring system. They will also inspect and validate the final installation.
  • Data Analysis Services — we share our machinery troubleshooting knowledgebase and offer periodic reporting of the machine condition on demand
  • Software Maintenance (SUA) — continuous responding to customer requests leads to independ-ent software improving — SW maintenance package entitles the user to all available soft-ware updates
  • Operator training — on-site training of the customer’s staff

Do not hesitate to leave us an enquiry or a feedback on the VMS.
