Continuous Monitoring Device Hardware for InsightCM

Overview

Cutsforth Continuous Monitoring Devices, such as Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) and Motor Current Signature Analysis (MCSA) systems, are NI CompactRIO-based systems that are composed of the following hardware and software components: CompactRIO controller, NI C Series I/O modules installed in the chassis, and InsightCM Device software application image. InsightCM supports a sub-set of the CompactRIO hardware platform when using the standard product. This document details the supported hardware for the standard product. 

 

Controllers

Cutsforth Monitoring Devices run InsightCM device software, referred to as application images. Each device type has a specific application image, and application images cause the device to perform operations such as acquiring data, collecting files, and communicating with InsightCM Server. The application image names refer to the device type and are used in this document to indicate the target monitoring type.

Vibration and General Condition Monitoring Modules

The CMS-9047, CMS-9036*, CMS-9058, CMS-9055, CMS-9068*, and CMS-9065* are general purpose condition monitoring devices.

The CMS-9047 and CMS-9036* are the high-performance device options. They only supports dynamic signal acquisition (DSA) modules in all 8 slots, and requires that module slots 1 and 2 are filled. Module 1 must use a NI-9232 for tachometer reading, and modules slots 2-8 can be either NI-9232 or NI-9230. The CMS-9036* (IEPE Disabled) is a variant image of the CMS-9036* that disables IEPE on all channels. The CMS-9036* (IEPE Disabled) and CMS-9047 (IEPE Disabled) supports the NI-9229 in module slots 2-8.

The CMS-9058, CMS-9055, CMS-9068*, and CMS-9065* are the standard CMS devices. These devices support DSA modules for waveform acquisition and single-point, static modules for process, static, and digital inputs. The module configuration for these devices require specific module layouts in the chassis.

MCSA Modules

The MMS-9058, MMS-9055, MMS-9068*, and MMS-9065* are the motor current signature analysis devices. These devices offer monitoring of multiple two-phase or three-phase AC induction electric motors on a single voltage bus using MCSA. Both device types are functionally equivalent but differ in the number of slots available for C Series modules (MMS-9068* has 8 slots, and MMS-9065* has 4 slots). The MCSA devices require that module slots 1 and 2 are filled. Module 1 must use a NI-9242 for voltage bus measurement, and other modules slots are NI 9239 for current measurement on specific motors. Module slots must be filled in ascending order, but not all slots need to be filled.

Module Description Sampling
NI 9242 3-channel, 250 Vrms Potential Transducer Input 5-10 kS/s/channel
NI 9239 4-channel, +/- 10 V Current Transducer Input 5-10 kS/s/channel

Thermal Imaging Cameras

The new compact infrared camera optris Xi 410 combines the benefits of infrared cameras and infrared thermometers.The Xi 410 has a fast Ethernet interface and can be powered by PoE. This allows for a simple installation, even if the distance from the PC is large. The built-in hot spot finder function can be used to reliably measure moving objects without having to reposition the camera. If the network connection is interrupted or if the connected PC has a problem, the camera immediately switches to the autonomous stand-alone mode which ensures a continuous measurement and alarm. Thus the reliability of problem detection (typically exceeding a threshold in the context of monitoring a fire outbreak) is maintained.
