Condition monitoring in the third dimension
Clear overview of FFT
Hovering over a data point shows the user a tooltip with its x/y-coordinates and timestamp. Clicking and dragging a box over a section of the diagram zooms in for greater detail. The 3D diagram replaces the waterfall diagram previously used for condition monitoring applications.
Harmonics are an effective troubleshooting tool. They can help identify which frequency is causing a vibration.
The first harmonic (fundamental frequency) is defined manually by selecting a peak. The remaining harmonics, the number of which can be configured, are calculated automatically and displayed in a diagram.
Filtering out side bands
Marking side bands also helps to identify errors for specific frequencies. The user defines the base band and the first side band manually. APROL then automatically calculates the remaining side bands. The amplitudes of the side bands are displayed in a table as an absolute value and as a percentage of the base band value. The bands are identified by colored vertical lines.
These tools help users identify damage frequencies quickly and easily. Early detection of damage and contamination helps prevent costly downtime.
