The safety-certified versions of the CSI 2130 retain all functions of the machinery health analyzers commonly operating in other areas. They are capable of gathering large amounts of data and reducing it into accurate diagnostics and actionable information. The collected data are uploaded for analysis and trending to the AMS Suite's Machinery Health Manager software, a component of Emerson's PlantWeb digital plant architecture. The health of critically important rotating equipment in hazardous areas can now be addressed through:
- Vibration data collection (single- or dual-channel)
- Vibration analysis (single- and dual-channel)
- Advanced cross-channel vibration analysis
- Cascade analysis for machine startup or coast-down (single- or dual-channel)
- Advanced transient analysis (single- or dual-channel)
Dynamic balancing and laser shaft alignment, which can also be done in hazardous areas using the new versions of the CSI 2130, typically require hot-work permits for hazardous environments.
Originally released as a high-function, dual-channel data collector and analyzer, the CSI 2130 is now available as a lower-cost single-channel data collector and as a single- or dual-channel standalone vibration analyzer.
