Remote Online Monitoring - Functionality & Reporting

Applied Diagnostics Ltd - Precision with Pride

Communications to our ‘remote monitoring stations’ are achieved by:

  1. GPRS (General Packet Radio Service)

Our larger units can also communicate via:

  1. Standard phone line (Modem)
  2. Existing Ethernet (Local Area Network)

The three main functions available are:

  1. Remote Data Monitoring
  2. Remote Data Logging
  3. Remote Process Control

With three main facilities:

  1. Monitoring
  2. Controlling
  3. Alerting

The latest and historical readings, relative to each of your monitored assets, are clearly displayed and readily available at the click of a button.

Any units in ‘alarm’ are highlighted and ‘tasked’ to respond in a preconfigured manner (e.g. Send SMS/E-Mail or Activate Local Alarm):

Most alterations to the ‘monitoring set up’ can be done remotely, there by avoiding unnecessary trips to site. Changes to ‘alarm’ criteria, or assigning additional ‘alarm task’s’ can easily be achieved via this facility:

*

The flexible reporting facility allows multiple users to access selected historical data from each ‘remote monitoring station’.

Comparisons of vibration and process levels can also easily be made between similar machines.

The latest software development now allows multiple users to view the whole of your sites condition and performance on one screen. Individual ‘dashboards’ are tailor made to display the relevant information you want:

*

Pre-configured ‘alarms’ and ‘tasks’ enable the ‘remote monitoring station’ to react in different ways depending upon vibration amplitudes, or even changes to process variables such as pressure.

In the example below a vibration trend increase was detected on the drive end bearing of a Forced Draft Fan motor. When amplitudes broke the set alarm an e-mail and SMS message was sent highlighting the issue. A localised alarm and buzzer was also activated:
