Meets your needs – for all machinery
PROGNOST®-SILver is a flexible and fast platform for integrated asset protection. It offers everything operators and instrumentation professionals call for:
- Machine Protection
- Diagnostic based SIL 3 certified emergency shutdown device
- Online Condition Monitoring
This system is designed to provide machinery protection while maximizing production uptime. This hardware incorporates a smart modular concept that enables you to gradually replace or expand your existing system for additional protection tasks. It also allows users of previous PROGNOST®-SILver racks to re-use their existing PROGNOST® input cards.
Significantly reduced wiring costs
You can achieve huge savings with the protection rack installed in hazardous areas, i.e. Zone 2. Direct and short wiring from the sensor to the PROGNOST®-SILver input eliminates expensive field wiring, such as lines from the junction box to the rack cabinet. Not only is the cost per loop reduced, but also the cost for housings because PROGNOST®-SILver can operate in Zone 2 without costly Exd- or purged Exp-housings. With Ethernet and fibre optics, a distance of > 1.000 meters from the protection rack (MPS) to the control room (CMS) is possible.
Focus on reciprocating equipment
Reliable monitoring of reciprocating machinery faces a list of challenges. PROGNOST Systems started to create dedicated solutions 30 years ago with the invention of the, still today, industry standard of segmented signal analyses. PROGNOST®-SILver comes with the DNA of millions of monitored operating hours.
Signal plausibility checks, proven reliable monitoring, and protection analyses guarantee no false trips and no missed detects.
