TwinProx Dual-Channel Non-Contact Proximity Solution
What is it?
TwinProx is a dual input proximity probe transmitter used on larger rotating or reciprocating machines (>1000HP) with fluid film journal bearings.
It is capable of 50,000+ samples per second, which makes it an excellent addition to gather machine condition data for analytical vibration software and Machine Learning AI Applications.
This is used by IIOT companies around the world to gather data for their respective software solutions.
TwinProx may be used to measure displacement vibration, axial thrust position of the shaft, machine speed or measure phase reference position (360° rotational position).
How does it work?
TwinProx employs a serial Modbus RS485 digital communications protocol output and acts as a slave device for a master controller.
It polls machine condition data real-time and is capable of delivering both bytes of overall static vibration data as well as raw vibration data.
This is used to create extremely high resolution spectrum/time waveform and orbit graphs for analysts to diagnose machine health and detect anomalies.
Using the sync pulse feature on a private communication bus hooked up between modules on the same machine, when one module alarms all the other modules on the network capture dynamic analysis data simultaneously.
Which problem does it solve?
From the highly detailed data that TwinProx outputs, this transmitter is capable of detecting problems on machines with journal bearings.
It also helps catch machine process failures months before they become catastrophic damage to your machine.
Early detection of machine issues and simultaneous data captures allow maintenance personnel more time to react to problems with a deeper understanding of the nature of the failure.
Due to its channel pairing, high sample rate, and resolution, TwinProx has all the underlying features that machine learning companies will need to get to failure prediction without the use of an analyst.
ML/AI software companies are learning faster and more accurately with Machine Saver.
Prior to the arrival of TwinProx, it was rarely financially feasible to include proximity probes solutions on larger preferred or essential machines with fluid film bearings.
Vibration analysts would go from machine to machine on a monthly schedule to analyze machines using hand held case mounted accelerometers.
That approach is costly, slow, and often dangerous.
