Monitoring critical equipment for signs of failure adds days of production to your facilities, but not every asset has an off-the-shelf monitoring solution. You can use the NI platform, from Test Dynamics, to measure any feature from any industrial asset.
Condition monitoring systems monitor equipment degradation. Typically, an equipment criticality and reliability assessment is performed to identify important equipment and common failure modes. With the selected equipment and failure modes in hand, you can identify sensors to monitor specific components of the equipment for degradation and the initiation of identified failure modes.
There are a number of measurement technologies and sensors for condition monitoring applications.
