CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

“For a small investment customers can benefit from our many decades of design and manufacturing expertise”, says Tom Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Wilcoxon Research® products. “Developing customized products in our AS9100 and ISO9001 certified facility ensures customers receive the highest quality products and services.”

Simple changes for simple solutions

Simple changes from custom cable assemblies and output connectors to frequency response and output sensitivity can result in significant cost savings and confidence in data integrity. For example:

  • The 786-500 high sensitivity low speed accelerometer was created for wind turbine monitoring, saving customers over $200 per turbine.
  • Developing a ruggedized 732-1D high-frequency sensor reduced measurement uncertainty and the need to replace sensors during 1/3 octave production testing of a newly designed electric engine.

Complex design for advanced applications

Meggitt designs and manufactures products for precise measurements in extreme environments.

  • A nuclear power plant required accelerometers that could detect high frequency levels up to 25 kHz while operating in temperatures up to 500°F (260°C). The 215A sensor was developed to fit the plant’s requirements, saving over $10,000 in initial installation cost and protecting against millions of loss damage due to unplanned downtime.
  • The Wilcoxon Research® 748 sensor was developed to monitor large structures up to 1,500 ft (457 m) underwater. The high-sensitivity 500 mV/g accelerometer was designed with 60% spectral noise reduction to 4 µg/sqrt Hz at 10 Hz to detect extremely low vibration amplitudes.

Quotes for variations on accelerometers, 4-20 mA sensors, cable assemblies, enclosures and hazardous area sensors can be provided in 48 hours. Meggitt strives to provide customers with complete monitoring solutions for all industrial applications through quality, design and manufacturing.
