Newsletter | February 2019

Welcome to the apt Group‘s First Quarter Newsletter for 2019.

To start the year rolling we are proud to announce the launch of the NEW ARTESIS continuous On-line Motor Monitors and software for Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA). The intelligent modules use machine learning algorithms to provide motor diagnostics to HMI systems (see free Seminar).

SPM Instrument launch the NEW user friendly BearingChecker & VibChecker. These instruments are ideal for beginners in condition monitoring, or as a supplement to more advanced instruments. In addition, Condmaster Ruby 2019 is released, with enhanced features and real-time integration in industrial enterprise environments.

Lastly, ALL-TEST Pro shares a video explaining how its portable motor diagnostic products “out-performs the Competition”!

We hope you enjoy this newsletter.

Kind regards,

NEW ARTESIS continuous On-line Motor Monitors for Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA)

Artesis motor monitoring modules are mounted in or near to the MCC; they use mathematical modelling techniques (developed by NASA) to detect and diagnose faults in electric motors and generators.

The monitoring modules are connected to the three supply phases of the motor using current (and sometimes voltage) transformers. Traffic light displays are used to warn the user of abnormal behaviour, including Electrical, Mechanical & Process faults.

You can connect into your own systems using standard interfaces, allowing results to be presented to staff through existing display systems and mobile devices. Select the correct Artesis monitoring unit for fixed speed or variable speed motors (LV or HV) and generators.

SPM Instrument have launched a NEW Bearing Checker & VibChecker

These instruments are designed for “ease of use” and the new instruments have superseded the very successful earlier versions, where sales exceeded all expectations.

These new instruments are now available for immediate delivery.

Some earlier versions are still available at reduced pricing – be quick!

BearingChecker is a portable instrument for fast and easy measurement of bearing condition in preventive maintenance. The instrument is push button controlled and basic measurement data are entered manually.

BearingChecker measures shock pulses, either with a built-in probe (BC200) or with an external transducer. The instrument can also be used as an electronic stethoscope for detecting machine sound irregularities.

Measuring results are indicated by green-yellow-red  symbols along with detailed evaluation of measurement values. Measurement results can also be transferred to a file for further processing, e.g. in Microsoft Excel. Click here for a data sheet.

VibChecker is an instrument for fast and easy measurement of machine condition in preventive maintenance. It is based on the recommendations of ISO2372 and ISO10816 standards for broad band measurements of vibration. These standards make the assumption that limited information, obtained easily and at a low cost, is often as useful as a detailed analysis using expensive equipment and elaborate techniques.

The instrument measures either with a built-in probe (VC200) or with an external transducer. It is push button controlled and basic measurement data are entered manually. Evaluated measuring results are indicated by greenyellow-red symbols, and a time signal and its FFT spectrum are produced for easy pattern recognition. Measurement results can also be transferred to a file for further processing, e.g. in Microsoft Excel. Click here to learn more.

SPM Instrument Release Condmaster Ruby 2019

A new version of Condmaster/LinX/Condmaster Entity Server/Leonova Service program/Intellinova Parallel EN software [2019.1.1] and Leonova Diamond/IS and Leonova Emerald/IS [MMI 9.01] is here!

The new release addresses the growing need for interoperability and real-time data integration in industrial enterprise environments.

Condmaster Ruby 2019, LinX and Condmaster Entity Server 2019

The new release arrives with significant database performance improvements, a new and enhanced KPI statistics module, and extended connectivity features for smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 environments.
