Auto fault finding as CDA Magazine
Schaeffler has launched an innovative standalone system for monitoring the condition of rotating plant and equipment with fixed or variable speeds from 100 to 15,000 rpm. Thanks to its unique automatic fault assessment feature, the system can be operated by maintenance staff with little or no expertise in vibration monitoring technology.
The FAG SmartQB is a ready-to-use, pre-configured condition monitoring system for electric motors, pumps, fans, compressors and gearboxes, which is simple to install (commissioning takes just five minutes) and requires no specific skills or knowledge of vibration diagnosis. When changes occur in the condition of the equipment, FAG SmartQB automatically generates plain text messages on its 7-inch display – a genuine innovation on the condition monitoring market.
The FAG SmartQB early warning system comprises of a FAG SmartQB sensor unit (a variant of the existing FAG SmartCheck condition monitoring device), a cube-shaped housing with touchscreen display, and a cable for power and data transmission (Power-over-Ethernet).
