SPECTRUM 'WAM' WIRELESS MONITOR SYSTEMS

 

Spectrum Instruments' family of "WAM" advanced wireless monitoring systems support a wide variety of analog inputs. WAM models are capable of acquiring up to 3, 7 or 49 vibration channels containing frequencies from DC up to 20 KHz.  Data  from 6 to 42 additional channels of process variables can also be acquired. Low resolution sensors such as cold junction thermocouples are amplified with an internal temperature compensation board supporting both J and K type thermocouplesVibration data is acquired simultaneously in groups of three(3), seven(7) or ninety three(93) channels depending on the model selected.

KEY FEATURES

  • 3, 7 or up to 49 vibration inputs with frequency ranges from near DC up to 40 KHz sample rate
  • accepts accelerometer & piezovelocity sensors, proximity probes, 4-20 ma process signals and more
  • process data from 6 or 42 process channels can also be acquired
  • available on-board amplification available for low level signals such as thermocouples
  • 1 Tachometer input is provided in addition to the 6 measurement channels on the WAM-761 and up to 2 Tachometers on the WAM-93
  • 900 MHz radios provide broadcast range of up to 2 miles
  • WLAN radios and Ethernet for high speed connectivity is also available on some models
  • On-board sample memory allows 2 million samples at rates adjustable from 64 to 20 KHz
  • On-board conditioning circuitry with programmable high /low pass filtering
  • Analog integration for acceleration to velocity
  • Water and weatherproof housing meets IP67 standards

 

For vibration configured channels, a standard 20V/4ma current is provided for biasing accelerometers.  This bias voltage can be disabled to allow direct AC inputs from other devices such as proximity probes.

The Spectrum WAM wireless monitoring system communicates back to the base station via a long range Spread Spectrum 900 MHz radio.  An optional WLAN communication (802.11B or 802.11G) is available for higher speed, shorter range applications.  Ethernet connectivity is offered on the WAM-93l.

Wireless data is managed by Pathfinder Software Suite; Pathfinder software receives and manages incoming data from multiple Spectrum WAM’s, performs an open-architecture archiving function, generates operator interface bar graphs, and provides advanced analytical tools such as windows for FFTs, waterfalls, orbits, trends, real time waveforms as well as Bode and Nyquist plots.

RESOLVING DATA BASE CONTINUITY ISSUES

Are you currently operating a vibration based predictive maintenance program using:

a SKF system ?

SKF CMXA50 Microlog Vibration Analyzer FFT Spectrum Analyzer
Rockwell ?

Entek IRD Datapac 1500
CSI ?

2130
Technekon ?

 

or any other brand name data collector system ?  

Spectrum Instruments' optional "TRANSLATOR" software allows vibration data captured by its WAM field module and stored in the Pathfinder Software Suite to be transferred to ANY brand name data collector for downloaiding / archiving into a plant's existing vibration based PM software program.  This allows the customer to analyze machine data captured by Spectum's WAM system with his own PM software that he is familiar with while at the same time, embedding new data supplementing existing historical data for improved condition trending.   Our "TRANSLATOR" software means no new software to learn!

WAM Software

WAM Software Suite provides real time monitoring, and data historian, and trending capabilty.  Frequency domain analysis is facilitated by advanced analysis features to mark critical frequencies, harmoics, and sidebands:  data can be displayed in a veriety of scales and units.

WAM Software Suite includes:

  • Database Editor
  • Pathfinder
  • Smaart Monitor
  • WAM Server
  • Bearing Database
  • System Monitor
  • Data Transfer Server

WAM System Monitor provides 24/7 system monitoring of the 'health' of more than 20 key elements in the WAM system, including but not limited to all power supplies, system nodes, Ethernet Bridges and so on.  When a fault is detected, the operator is provided a visual alarm on his screen, while at the same time an auto email is sent to maintenance personnel.

WAM MODBUS INTERFACE allows Pathfinder to to share data with other devices that are MODBUS compliant.

WAM BEARING DATABASE - a complete database of common bearings supports advanced analysis features of Pathfinder.

TSI-DCT software and hardware package transfers data to any DCS system using 32 channel 4-20ma interface.
