Meggitt releases condition monitoring software for critical rotating assets

— January 07, 2015

Fribourg, Switzerland –– Meggitt, specialists in advanced condition monitoring, has released VibroSight® software, a total monitoring solution for turbines, critical machinery and balance-of-plant equipment, following installation and extensive field usage over several pilot projects in gas turbine power plants around the world.

The highly integrated software suite flags critical events and monitors machinery health, enabling the predictive methodologies which help operators make informed decisions about asset management and maintenance, and improve the availability and reliability of machinery.

VibroSight works with Meggitt’s entire range of monitoring systems and accepts data from all types of sensors. The easy-to-use software allows the user to configure, trend and analyze data from VibroSmart®, VM600 or a hybrid centralized and distributed monitoring system. It can process data from a single compact system or thousands of parameters across a network of several plants to provide fleet-wide asset management. An open architecture makes it easy to expand the system and integrate additional data with existing monitoring functions.

VibroSight visualizes vibration, combustion and performance monitoring data from gas, steam and hydro power generation turbines and other critical rotating assets. Live data and historical trends can be viewed and analyzed from graphical interfaces and plots, from the server location or remotely accessed via a PC. Continuous data acquisition offers seamless monitoring of even short events, however, configurable data-logging rules enable users to ensure they are not overwhelmed by data.

Application-specific packages monitor gas turbine combustion and hydroelectric generator air gap. The full suite of visualization tools includes static (bar chart, Bode, correlation, polar, shaft centreline, table, trend) and dynamic (orbit, spectrogram, spectrum, full spectrum, waterfall/cascade, full waterfall/ cascade, waveform) plots.
