Its 5-axis technology makes it the only sensor in this segment to offer simultaneous Live Move tracking in both planes for machine corrections. This allows live monitoring of horizontal and vertical machine corrections at the same time, with the sensor at any rotational shaft position.

The powerful synergy between the new, faster CPU and the MEMS inclinometer ensures a finer and faster acquisition of misalignment data during a Continuous Sweep. Hundreds of measurement readings are automatically taken during shaft rotation, ensuring highly repeatable results even in harsh conditions with vibration and under unfavorable mechanical constraints such as coupling backlash. The RS5 sensor permits highly accurate results to be obtained with as little as 60 degrees of shaft rotation, starting and ending anywhere. Users can easily view and compare results in the results table which stores readings before starting with alignment corrections.

The integrated ambient light compensation makes accurate measurements possible even in strong, direct sunlight. New battery technology means reduced energy consumption for long laser and sensor runtimes in the field. Finally, the RS5 laser and sensor are fully waterproof, shockproof and dustproof for continuous service in the worst of industrial environments.

Optimizing Value From Physical Assets

There are ever-increasing opportunities to create new and sustainable value in asset-intensive organizations through enhanced use of technology.

Conducting Asset Criticality Assessment for Better Maintenance Strategy and Techniques

Conducting an asset criticality assessment (ACA) is the first step in maintaining the assets properly. This article addresses the best maintenance strategy for assets by using ACA techniques.

Harmonizing PMs

Maintenance reliability is, of course, an essential part of any successful business that wants to remain successful. It includes the three PMs: predictive, preventive and proactive maintenance.

How an Edge IoT Platform Increases Efficiency, Availability and Productivity

Within four years, more than 30 per cent of businesses and organizations will include edge computing in their cloud deployments to address bandwidth bottlenecks, reduce latency, and process data for decision support in real-time.

6 Signs Your Maintenance Team Needs to Improve Its Safety Culture

When it comes to people and safety in industrial plants, maintenance teams are the ones who are most often in the line of fire and at risk for injury or death.

Making Asset Management Decisions: Caught Between the Push and the Pull

Most senior executives spend years climbing through the operational ranks. In the operational ranks, many transactional decisions are required each day.

Assume the Decision Maker Is Not Stupid to Make Your Communication More Powerful

Many make allowances for decision makers, saying some are “faking it until they make it.” However, this is the wrong default position to take when communicating with decision makers.

Ultrasound for Condition Monitoring and Acoustic Lubrication for Condition-Based Maintenance

With all the hype about acoustic lubrication instruments, you would think these instruments, once turned on, would do the job for you. Far from it!

Maintenance Costs as a Percent of Asset Replacement Value: A Useful Measure?

Someone recently asked for a benchmark for maintenance costs (MC) as a percent of asset replacement value (ARV) for chemical plants, or MC/ARV%.
