Easy-to-deploy vibration sensor simplifies asset monitoring

27 January 2020

The AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor is a low-cost, easy-to-deploy, vibration sensor from Emerson. It is able to perform prescriptive analytics on vibration data using native software to automatically identify failure modes and prevent potential problems involving rotating assets.

The compact device is said to make it economically feasible to fully monitor motors, pumps, fans and other critical plant equipment to reduce downtime and achieve more reliable operations.

The AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor is able to collect and contextualise vibration data to generate actionable information. By applying Emerson’s PeakVue Plus technology, the device can identify when why and how assets will fail. This allows technicians to prioritise common mechanical issues such as bearing defects, gear wear, under-lubrication and pump cavitation, enabling them to focus more on operations-critical tasks.

The AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor operates on the WirelessHART network and fully supports the vibration analysis tools included in Emerson’s AMS Machine Works software. It uses a triaxial sensor to capture data in three dimensions to generate a complete picture of the machine condition.
