State of the art machine monitoring for maximum availability
FAG ProCheck is an online monitoring system. It can be used to prevent unplanned downtime and for quality control. The system offers a high level of functionality and is available in a range of variants – from an 8 channel to a 16 channel system.
FAG ProCheck continuously records data on vibration, temperature and other process parameters and subsequently carries out their evaluation. As a result, incipient damage and its causes can be detected at a very early stage and the appropriate countermeasures can be introduced in good time. This gives a considerable reduction in operating costs.
In addition, FAG ProCheck offers the possibility of correlating a large number of analogue and digital input and output signals to the vibration data. These channels also allow simple communication with higher level systems such as process control systems.
Due to its extremely robust and compact design, this system is ideally suited for use in almost all industrial segments. The system can be used in steelworks, paper machinery, cement plants or in the oil and gas industry.
Defects and damage can be detected on machinery without the need for a diagnosis expert on site. The data can be transferred to other locations by remote access and analysed there, for example by the Schaeffler vibration experts.
An explosion-protected version of FAG ProCheck is available by agreement. In this version, a specially pressure-encapsulated housing prevents the system coming into contact with an explosive atmosphere. This is because wherever flammable gases, vapours, fluids or dust occur, the presence of oxygen and an ignition source can rapidly cause an explosion.
The display, which is individually tailored to the customer’s requirements, gives a user interface that allows a rapid overview of the condition of the plant. Depending on the complexity of the plant, this display can be arranged on several levels.
