The latest release of the AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager from Emerson Process Management expands the protection of critical assets to include basic
prediction capabilities with only minimal time and wiring investment.
The latest update to Emerson’s asset management solution, AMS Suite:
Machinery Health Manager allows the CSI 6500 protection system to communicate
additional prediction data to enable users to make real-time decisions on
operating their critical assets. These basic prediction capabilities for the
CSI 6500 protection system will be available in version 5.61
of AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager.
Using a simple Ethernet connection from the CSI 6500, users receive
periodic parameter trends and spectrum/waveform data delivered at specific
intervals. This data is particularly useful for determining the health of
sleeve bearings on turbo machinery. With prediction data acquired
automatically, there is no need to connect to buffered outputs on the
protection system, reducing the risk of inadvertently causing a machine trip.
Waveform data from the CSI 6500 is now incorporated onto the circular
polar plots available in AMS Machinery Manager v5.61, facilitating diagnosis of
developing valve faults in reciprocating compressors.

solutions that capture more of the right data, and delivering it in a way
that allows users to make real-time, quality decisions on how to operate their
Emerson’s AMS Machinery Manager integrates data from
route-based, online, and wireless vibration solutions as well as third-party
oil and infrared analysis data to provide a complete picture of machine health.
