Realistic simulation of sensors with the PROGNOST®-SenSim
With PROGNOST®-SenSim, testing of machine protection systems procedures can be carried out without disassembly and reassembly of the sensors.
One Device for all testing Routines
PROGNOST®-SenSim is a portable device for the simulation of sensor signals. It simulates static and dynamic signals for measuring loop test routines.
Sensor Simulation Capabilities
Simulation of sensors with separate setting for static and dynamic signal components Simulation of full sensor measuring range Predeﬁned Sensor library including most commonly used Eddy Current and Acceleration / Velocity Sensor Types User conveniently apply values in units they regularly deal with (g’s, inch/sec, mil, bar etc). eliminating the need for complex electrical conversion into mV, mA etc.
Realistic signals up to 10 kHz allow simulation of real-life
No calibration issues or damage of sensors due to disassembly, mechanical stimulation and reassembly. Eliminates the need of mechanical signal stimulation, e.g. shaker.
Proof Test Interval of SIS/Safety Protection systems with real safety limits and check of safety algorithms, e.g. voting, consecutive revolutions.
Reliable and user friendly
With PROGNOST®-SenSim Handheld, users are able to conﬁgure the PROGNOST®-SenSim Generator for simulating signals. After conﬁguration, data is applied to the Generator which is then ready to be used independently from the Handheld. After connecting the measuring loops, the Generator will produce the previously conﬁgured simulation values in order to check the measuring loop and safety protection systems.
