Inverter gains advanced condition monitoring capabilities

03 May 2017

Mitsubishi Electric has extended the diagnostics capabilities of its variable speed drives by integrating smart condition monitoring (SCM) technology in a new version of the FR-A800 inverter series.

With the FR-A800-E line users are able to carry out condition monitoring functions directly within the inverter. This has been achieved through the integration of the SCM Kit-1 into the inverters. The pre-configured, plug-and-play solution includes the FAG SmartCheck vibration sensor from e-Factory Alliance partner Schaeffler. Combined with the PLC function, also integrated within the inverter, it is said to provide a complete drive-based solution for preventative maintenance. 

This integrated approach to monitoring the health of individual assets combines traffic-light indication of the asset through red, amber and green status lights on the sensor, plus more detailed analysis within the FR-A800-E series. Within the inverters operating temperature and vibration feedback from the SmartCheck sensor is combined with the monitoring of a full range of other external parameters, including speed, voltage and current information. Detailed diagnoses can be monitored remotely, or displayed on the FR-A800-E inverters’ integrated screen.
