Sensoteq reveals the latest set of new features for its Analytix platform. This latest update focuses on improving the vibration analysis tools.
New Gear tooth Fault Frequencies
For those machines with gears or gearboxes, users can add a “gear tooth count” to the analysis options and display gear fault frequencies on the spectrum by the right click menu or pressing “G” on their keyboard. Using the speed and tooth count the fault lines are drawn on the spectrum and assist users in diagnosing gear faults.
Custom Bearing Fault Frequencies
Users can now add a custom bearing and specify their own fault frequencies for those very specific bearings that do not exist in our standard database. This capability will be useful for those applications that use non-typical bearings. The new bearing information will be saved to a separate database and can be recalled and applied to any other measuring point the user has access to. The fault frequencies can be edited later if incorrect values were entered initially.
New Overall and Power Band Trending
A new view is available for long interval data that shows an overview of all the extracted measurements from the waveform and spectrum. If alarms have been created for a specific measurement, the set level will be displayed on the appropriate graph. If an alarm has been triggered within the selected time-frame an alarm indicator line will be shown at the time and date on the related graph. This view is useful to get an overall feel for all the different measurements that your sensor has recorded.
New Spectral Density Graph
The traditional waterfall graph has a new option to view the data as a spectral density plot or “heat map”. By taking many spectrums and displaying colour values for each bin in the spectrum, an analyst can assess if fault frequencies are shifting over time, potentially indicating increasing fault severity.
New Trending Options
All time series graphs can now utilise a 50-point rolling average and trend line option. These additional tools are accessed via the right click menu or “Z” and “T” respectively on the keyboard. By analysing the trends with these new tools, analysts can better make predictions about the health and performance of their machines.
