CRL 1-hr: Nov 7 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

As a web-based analysis and reporting system, InCTRL (released in 2008) can now instantly communicate threshold conditions and bearing health assessments on the maintainer’s handheld SoundCTRL device while at the test site.

The entire InCTRL System includes online reporting and analysis software, SoundCTRL, and CTRL-developed ultrasound detection sensors.  This system is scalable; suitable for deployment at a single location or corporate-wide.  Management teams can access the data for oversight while away from the office, use the information for forecasting and compare equipment summaries by business unit.

Benefits to Integrating InCTRL & SoundCTRL

  • Instant analysis after a reading has been taken
  • Use trending and analysis features to identify early signs of equipment failure
  • Make maintenance decisions with empirical data
  • Increase equipment reliability
