AUSTIN, TEXAS  - Emerson Process Management, a leader in wireless technology for mainstream process manufacturing, has expanded the capabilities of its CSI 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter to deliver more detailed information for machinery analysis. In addition to sending operators direct alerts on high vibration caused by faults like cavitation or bearing defects, the CSI 9420 can now also use Emerson’s reliable Smart Wireless network to send high resolution spectra to vibration experts for detailed diagnosis of machinery issues.

The CSI 9420 connects quickly, easily, and economically to any machine. Its wireless capabilities are especially beneficial for equipment that is in remote or hard-to-reach locations, is inadequately monitored, and needs more visibility to operations and maintenance personnel.

The CSI 9420 has been proven cost-effective in a wide range of applications across all industries. For example, it presents an excellent solution for monitoring refinery pumps, protecting against not only production loss but also health and safety risks from fugitive emissions. Other key uses include monitoring of cooling towers, compressors, and agitators in settling ponds as well as all types of motors, pumps, and fans.

Vibration information delivered wirelessly by the CSI 9420 includes velocity and PeakVueTM stress wave values. Configuration, diagnostics, and alerts from the CSI 9420 are available in Emerson’s AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, while vibration data can be correlated with other process variables in the company’s DeltaVTM and OvationTM digital control systems as well as other suppliers’ data historians or control systems.  The CSI 9420 has a user-configurable interface to report high resolution spectra and waveforms as well as vibration energy bands for enhanced trending and alarming.

“Emerson is committed to providing our customers with Smart Wireless offerings that increase safety, reliability, and uptime - absolute priorities for our users,” said Stuart Harris, vice president and general manager of the Asset Optimization business. “By significantly enhancing wireless predictive diagnostics for essential machinery, we enable our customers to expand their monitoring programs to address these key business priorities.”

Smart Wireless extends the benefits of Emerson’s PlantWebTM digital plant architecture to areas of the plant that were previously out of physical or economic reach. In addition to the wireless vibration transmitter, Emerson offers a wide range of wireless field instrumentation and plant operations technology, including Fisher® position monitors,  Rosemount® transmitters, Rosemount Analytical and Machinery HealthTM Management devices, and native wireless interfaces to AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, DeltaV or Ovation digital automation systems, and wireless SmartStartTM services.
