Algorithms Boost Machine Monitor’s Capabilities

SENSONICS adds measurement algorithm options for its Sentry G3 machinery protection monitor, a turbine supervisory system. The enhanced system provides machine protection to the API670 standard and now offers a range of programmable algorithms in each module to rapidly identify abnormal conditions and better manage the dynamic behavior of a rotating plant. 


The Sentry G3 concept is one module type for all measurements. The measurement algorithms can be loaded and configured in any channel position to provide the required measurement regime. 

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The recent focus has been to provide gas turbine specific measurements such as first order vibration tracking and dynamic pressure which are both requirements recommended by gas turbine manufacturers.  In addition, the speed algorithm has also been optimized to accept a wider range of speed probes and now offers a market leading sensitivity performance over a wide speed range ensuring the turbine interlocks can be integrated effectively to the G3 system over a range of operational conditions.


The measurement algorithms can be downloaded in to the common hardware module. Also, the G3 system sensor interface permits a wide range of sensor types to be utilized providing both the necessary drive power supplies and fault detection. It offers up to 24 measurement channels in a 3U x 19” racking format, while the system architecture separates functions across the independent modules providing a channel reliability suitable for safety instrumented systems.
