Hi, 

today my coworker did a measurement of pump B but on the route he save it on pump A,

I know the easy part is to delete the wrong data on A and re measure pump B

If the system you are using is CSI then that is extremely difficult to do.  Every level of detail has to be identical and once that is the case Dbutly is the way to go.  I think their thought might have been. Lets's not allow that so no one can copy data from one machine to another. Drew Mackley might want to chime in but he does not frequent furoms very much.

Tell you a story... Long time ago I employed a really good person.  So happens he also wanted to be a DJ at night. Music / girls etc.

Then he did a job on a papermachine and collected it in the wrong paper machine. Think he uploaded routes for #4 when he needed to upload the routes for #5. He tried to cover over and i noticed it straight way. I had to put him on the spot and say. I can't have a DJ who works until 4 am show up on a paper mill at 7 am. I don't want to have to call your parents with an awkward call.

He gracefully gave up his job then and there. And I did manage to move the data across but it was a terrible waste of a day. And that is where the CSI reference came from. I think Entek is better on this front and maybe others.  There will be others better versed on this front. Hope I have helped.

Speaking from CSI. It is ALWAYS  easier to just go back int the field and recollect.  If you are indeed on site. Otherwise it gets messy but it is possible.

fburgos if your pump a and b were duplicates then it might be as simple as changing a to b in the machine name.. And dbutly will make that easy if indeed youu are using CSI. I have been in your situation before and try to teach people - preventin is better than cure. Let us all know how you go. That will be appreciated.

Hijacking...

My first boss in this field was also a DJ. He was also only 24, though. After 8 years doing this, after I left, he burned out with the travel affecting his hobbies too much. Instead, at 30, he started a gin distillery that he opened a few months ago.

If it's CSI, it's not really that difficult; just a little time consuming. I've done it quite a few times. <head slap to me [sneaky] >

See:  https://www.machineryanalysis.org/post/moving-data-from-one-machine-to-another-can-it-be-done-9679567?pid=1303562279

I was actually working on a cheat sheet for this but that got waylaid by major machine upgrades and other projects. Hopefully someday I'll find the time.

As I understand. Commtest was founded in New Zealand. And when the global financial crisis came along one of the main investors was forced to sell. GE at the time - because they did not have a viable portable instrument - jumped at the chance  to buy. And then it all went pearshaped under the GE umbrella. Now they have the scout and trying to make that all work with system 1. Users of Scout please let us all know how that is working out.  Keen to hear.

Investors also invested in the famous NZ movie productions and made a bundle. It was also in connection with the major earthquake in Christchurch so when GE came with an offer it was an option to get cash and not to put in more investments. Rock artist event was maybe 3-4 years earlier when cooperation with another sales/distribution company made things complicated, they worked mainly with carbon brushes since like a 100 years and was very different. I saw some GE people in transition like 2 years ago btw Ascent and "new ST1", Ascent is very good, still use it once a year and this year maybe twice. "New" software have some way to go to even do the same and as it is mainly petrochemical inputs it is likely to be having different focus. So getting a speed related setup for papermachines is not likely in the short term.

Morgan National? If they didn't change name, who knows. Commtest started out doing controllers for electrical wheelchairs with great success, dominating the market and a temperature logger Morgan National bought a out of round measurement device for commutators and then the VB1 vibration collector that was worse than ST1 but with some help from us among others it became the VB series, Morgan National had exclusive distribution for a while and the rest is history.
