I’ve one on order and looks like another in the process off for two customers. They didn’t want software just something that would give an output when an alarm point it reached and as it is microprocessor controlled you’ve not limited to the 4-20 range and you can have 3x simultaneous parameters being monitored each with its own alarm criteria per channel. In the case of both units I’ll be doing monthly readings from the units (made handier by the BNC outputs from the control panel) along with routes I already do at the plants.

I’ve heard of a wireless system that works on Biaxial temp Andy overall vibe sensor that can send over a km from sensor to its gateway and sends sms messages to you when alarm thresholds are breached.

I saw a brochure from a company called "Petasence" . It is a triax system. Looks interesting.

One of 30 I think my boss has flyers for in his desk. We have even developed some in house. Its like the great video game console wars of the 80's, and no consumer wants to be stuck investing in the equivalent of the Emerson Arcadia 2001 or the Apple Pippin.

We have just finished installing a CSI 6500 online system. We are monitoring 80 pieces of equipment. . We have it looking at equipment that runs on demand and intermittently. We are only using the analysis part of the system, no need for the protection/trip side of it. Still in the learning/tweaking curve.  Took almost a year from inception to the first processor going online. We have a total of 12 processors in the system.  Hoping to get to the point that it will send out an email or text if something goes into alarm. That being said the alarms need to be accurate or I'll be getting a lot of emails. Time will tell.

Hi P Hine. We're thinking of getting a 6500 system here as well. Have you got all 12 rack systems feeding back to a central AMS server? Are you running AMS Device Manager on top of MHM and also linking to Delta V?
We're just at the early stages of it. As usual with these projects, I have to implement it in 'my spare time'

Our system is feeding to a virtual server in Chicago. That is where the main MHM server is located also. The people in Chicago are running a version of Device Manager. We use Delta V for one of our lines but it is not interfaced with MHM. I'm with you on the "spare time " part of it. The system seems to be adaptable for many different equipment configurations. We really needed some way to monitor the intermittently running equipment. Looks like it will do that . Just need to do the usual tweaking.

“Amazon has selected waites wireless with thousands in use globally”

Dave, what do you mean? Has Amazon installed these in their warehouses, or are they selling them?

Rusty I believe they (Amazon) have them installed on conveyors in their distribution centres.
