The ability to predict machine and system failures before they happen reduces costs and increases availability. Condition monitoring modules from B&R precisely detect cases when service work may be needed and are also extremely easy to configure. All of these modules are part of the X20 control system series and can therefore be used in any control topology with no limitations. A special feature of these modules is that they perform vibration analysis locally, right on the module. The availability of fully processed results reduces the time and cost of integration to a minimum. These results also provide detailed insight into the system mechanics, allowing existing processes to be optimized with maximum efficiency.
