Well balancingmachine guys said about 3 hours minimum at the speed they had that I don't remember but it was similar to operational I think....

but CSI 2140 can't


I have a 2-channel 2140 and I always collect 2 channels (sometimes 4) while balancing, but I actually think the data is collected sequentially instead of simultaneously.  I'm not sure why because the 2140 should certainly be capable of collecting 2, 3, or 4 channels of balance data simultaneously.  Perhaps it's a limitation of the FastBal program, which is honestly a bit long-in-the-tooth.

Does anyone know for sure if it's simultaneous or just sequential?

Oh, and by the way, good job Vibe!  [thumb]

I used to use FastBal II and it was sequential.

I wonder if it has something to do with resolving the phase simultaneously to all 4 channels.

FastBal is seriously old, it did have some serious bugs like a none voluntarily phase change at exactly 20000 RPM and guess at what fixed speed my customers aero gyros were running at..... But that was 20+ years ago and solved not that they wanted the product anymore....... So why touching something that works? Sync reading in balancing will not sell more of anything.....

In Advanced Analysis you can monitor peak/phase on all 4 channels simultaneously, so it must an issue in FastBal.

I believe they are the lazy ones just porting old software to new hardware

@ fburgos, yes they set up the rolls the night and crawl throughout the night ahead of my arrival usually in the morning. To get all that sag out.  The one I did the other day was 12,000 Kg and that is not even a big one.  yes it would be nice to not have to press buttons for every step.  The CSI brick, when used for balancing - is essentially the same as older style MUX adaptor. I like it a lot but then again have not used any other balancing programs.  IMO there is always elegance in simplicity so dont mind using FastBal2 regardless of it's age.  as long as it works.
