Emerson Unveils Wireless Machinery-Health Transmitter

ARCwire -- Emerson Process Management, a leader in the development and application of wireless technology for mainstream process manufacturing, unveiled the CSI 9420 Machinery Health Transmitter. The wireless vibration transmitter provides monitoring of mechanical equipment, delivering predictive diagnostics for improved reliability and plant safety.

As a component of Emerson's smart wireless solutions, the rugged industrial transmitter connects quickly, easily, and economically to any machine. Through the PlantWeb digital architecture, the transmitter delivers vibration information over a reliable wireless self-organizing network for use by operations and maintenance personnel. Configuration, diagnostics, and alerts from the wireless vibration transmitter are available in AMS Suite predictive maintenance software. Vibration data is also available in data historians or any control system for trending and analysis with other process parameters. In addition to measuring overall vibration, the CSI 9420 includes PeakVue technology for advanced bearing diagnostics.
