Machinery health monitoring in hazardous areas

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Metrix has announced the Metrix DPS, a three-part field-configurable measurement system for position, radial vibration and speed that comprises a digital proximity transducer, interfacing cable and a choice of signal conditioner - available as a driver for a machinery protection system or as a transmitter with a 4 to 20mA signal to a PLC/DCS or SCADA system.

The Metrix DPS is said to be field configurable for nearly any probe type, cable and target-material combination.Features include custom field-generated curve, as well as pre-set calibrations for a variety of manufactures, probe tip diameters, extension cable lengths, target materials, and linear ranges.Additionally the units are user-configurable to measure radial vibration, axial position, or rotational speed.

The 3-wire 24Vdc MX2033 is a configured proximity driver that provides a voltage output that is proportional to distance from the target, with output voltage effectively corresponding to vibration or position measurement data.The MX2034 transmitter outputs a 4 to 20mA signal proportional to vibration, speed, or axial position. The 24Vdc loop powered device directly connects to a PLC, DCS, SCADA system, or other instrumentation.
