Unplanned downtime can be highly costly and unnecessary for a manufacturing business. That is why condition monitoring equipment has become an essential tool for companies that depend on their machinery and equipment. Wainbee Limited understands that predictive maintenance is an important factor in today’s industrial world. Our partnership with WAGO Corporation allows us to supply a full line of condition monitoring modules and accessories for the industrial and commercial market place.
WAGO’s line of condition monitoring devices includes instruments that track power loss, temperature, shock, or vibration.
Helping to reduce maintenance costs
Condition monitoring is the name for the process of tracking machinery and equipment health in order to find out about impending failure in advance. It enables the initiation of maintenance and other preventive actions before the failure occurs. This not only reduces the costs of maintenance, but also improves plant productivity.
Condition monitoring has many significant advantages. By lowering maintenance expenses and reducing downtime, it increases company profits in the long run. It also provides a reasonable work schedule for maintenance personnel, while helping company staff to stick to their own schedules without needless interruption. According to a study by the United Kingdom government, manufacturers with condition monitoring programs reduce their maintenance costs by 25 per cent.
Condition monitoring equipment like WAGO’s is quick and easy to implement on new or existing machinery. Wainbee carries several types of WAGO modules and accessories for this purpose, including the following:
- 750-645 Vibration Monitoring Modules. For online monitoring of machine vibration. Analyzes machine conditions by collecting data on vibration velocity and shock pulse.
- Three-Phase Power Measurement Modules. These devices have monitoring currents that can diagnose phase loss, imbalanced phases, overloaded systems or motors, blinding of mechanical parts, lubrication issues, and failing motors.
- Current Signal Conditioners. Jump Flex CT and Rogowski signal conditioners.
- Temperature Measuring Devices. Jump Flex RTD and Thermocouple modules, including transducers and isolation amplifiers.
After measuring key parameters like vibration, shock, power current, and temperature, WAGO devices can analyze the information against machine components’ life expectancies. This enables plants to set preventive-maintenance schedules before component failures result in downtime and extra expense.
