SEW-Eurodrive has launched its updated vibration analysis sensor, the DUV30A.
Replacing the company’s DUV10A sensor, the DUV30A features faster sampling time at a constant speed, allowing the monitoring of more dynamic gear-unit applications.
A key element of any effective predictive maintenance program, the DUV30A permits the early detection of gear-unit wear and damage, enabling site personnel to plan gear-unit maintenance.
The new DUV30A vibration analysis sensor allows the early detection of roller bearing and gearing wear or damage, as well as gear-unit unbalance and resonance detection.
“The DUV30A sensor has been specially designed to detect abnormal frequencies across a range of 1.875 to 6000Hz,” says SEW-Eurodrive Victorian Sales and Product Manager, Darren Klonowski.
“Its sampling time of 0.8sec per monitored object means it can accommodate more dynamic gear-unit applications.”
Housed in a compact body and closely mounted onto a gear-unit, the DUV30A employs both fast Fourier transform (FFT) and high frequency FFT (HFFT) harmonic signal evaluation to monitor gear-unit and bearing condition and vibration.
“This conditioning monitoring allows on-site personnel to better manage their planned maintenance intervals according to the application and duty cycle,” says Klonowski.
“This is especially valuable in applications where gear-unit breakdown and unplanned downtime can take extended periods of time to remedy.”
The DUV30A sensor is equipped with an RS232 port for in-field parameter set-up and interrogation, and also features a second I/O port that accommodates speed input and alarm output connectivity to supervisory PLCs.
“The DUV30A vibration sensor can be configured to warn key personnel of abnormal gear-unit or bearing condition once a pre-determined vibration alarm-point has been reached,” says Klonowski. “The alarm can be monitored via a supervisory PLC, HMI, SCADA or PC.”
