B&R's (Roswell, GA) innovative X20 module with onboard intelligence for vibration analysis makes condition monitoring an integral standard feature in every machine. Until now, preventive maintenance based on data from permanent condition monitoring has been rarely practiced due to the high cost of conventional systems. The X20 module remedies this by maximizing machine availability while minimizing the time and money spent on maintenance, allowing significant reductions to the total cost of ownership of machines and systems. Features include:
- 4 input channels with an IEPE interface (integrated electronic piezoelectric) for querying acceleration sensors.
- More than 70 condition parameters like configurable damage frequency values.
- A reduced load on the fieldbus and system CPU as well as the elimination of superfluous interfaces.
