Machine condition transmitters (MCT)

Maximize machine utilization

Machine condition transmitter
Machine Condition Transmitters (MCT) deliver added value to essential production equipment by providing vital information on bearing performance that helps maximize potential machine utilization.

Highly cost-effective, using MCTs means spotting potential problems before they deteriorate so maintenance and repair schedules can be forecast and production arrangements can continue as planned.

Low-cost continuous monitoring

You can permanently mount each stand-alone monitoring device onto a machine providing low-cost continuous monitoring of specific machine, gear and bearing performance parameters in pumps, fans, motors and other general-purpose machinery.

Different MCT devices are available for velocity, enveloped acceleration, vibration acceleration, displacement, position and temperature.
 
CMSS 530 series MCT - velocity transmitter/monitor
CMSS 530 series MCT
The CMSS 530 series are 4-20 mA velocity transmitters. They convert part of the wideband input signal to a signal proportional to the RMS or peak (TruePeak) value of the velocity signal and can directly interface with a process control system. The MCT provides insight into machine condition.
CMSS 590 series MCT - enveloped acceleration transmitter/monitor
CMSS 590 series MCT
The CMSS 590 series are 4-20 mA enveloped acceleration transmitters. Used in conjunction with a low impedance accelerometer, they process the dynamic vibration acceleration input signal to distinguish repetitive impacts generated by over-rolling bearing defects or gearbox problems.
CMSS 525 series MCT - vibration acceleration transmitter/monitor
CMSS 525 series MCT
The CMSS 525 series are vibration acceleration transmitters/monitors. They are compatible with piezo, voltage output accelerometer inputs and provide a 4-20 mA output proportional to the overall measurement. Each unit provides power for the associated transducer, processes the vibration signal to determine overall amplitude and outputs a 4-20 mA DC current that is proportional to a user specified range, such as 0-10 g’s in RMS peak detection. Combining transmitters with an existing PLC or DCS system results in a high density, low cost vibration monitoring system. When specified with the alarm feature, the unit functions as a complete single channel monitor that includes alert and danger alarms, and output relays.
CMSS 540 series MCT - displacement transmitter/monitor
CMSS 540 series MCT
The CMSS 540 series are displacement transmitters/monitors. They are compatible with proximity (eddy) probe inputs and provide a 4-20 mA output proportional to the overall measurement. Each unit provides power for the associated transducer, processes the vibration signal to determine overall amplitude and outputs a 4-20 mA DC current that is proportional to a user specified range, such as 10 mils peak-to-peak detection. Combining transmitters with an existing PLC or DCS system results in a high density, low cost vibration monitoring system. When specified with the alarm feature, the unit functions as a complete single channel monitor that includes alert and danger alarms, and output relays.
CMSS 545 series MCT - position transmitter/monitor
CMSS 545 series MCT
The CMSS 545 series are position transmitters/monitors. They are compatible with proximity (eddy) probe inputs and provide a 4-20 mA output proportional to the overall measurement. Combining transmitters with an existing PLC or DCS system results in a high density, low cost vibration monitoring system. When specified with the alarm feature, the unit functions as a complete single channel monitor that includes alert and danger alarms, and output relays.
CMSS 570 series MCT - temperature transmitter/monitor
CMSS 570 series MCT
The CMSS 570 series are solid-state temperature transmitters/monitors. You can use them with a solid-state temperature sensor or dual output vibration/temperature sensor that provides a 10 mV/deg K output. The input signal is processed to provide temperature in degrees F or C. The output is a standard 4-20 mA current proportional to this temperature, within the specified full-scale range of 0 to 250 °F. The 4-20 mA output is suitable for direct connection to a programmable logic controller (PLC) or distributed control system (DCS).
