What it does
This is a pure machine protection system (MPS) with the possibility to shut down your machinery automatically in case of a severe mechanical damage. A total of 68 input channels from up to 8 machines can be monitored in parallel. Advanced analyses like e.g. 36 segments RMS (root mean square) and various machine protection plausibility checks ensure a reliable and early shutdown.
Signal Plausibility Check
PROGNOST® uses specialized signal processing to avoid false alarms caused by electrical or hardware failures such as broken or loose wires, short circuits or broken terminals. Even out-of-range signals are identified and indicated as “UNSAFE“. Users are informed about any “UNSAFE” loop immediately.
The intelligent combination of vibration, dynamic rod position, dynamic cylinder pressure and temperatures analyses provides the most reliable shutdown parameters in the industry. The PROGNOST Systems invention of “Segmented Vibration Analysis” and a unique algorithm ensure fast, reliable machine shutdown, and no false alarms.
Signal recording with PROGNOST®-DataCenter
Compiling and saving recordings of online signals and trends is a real novelty in the world
of hardware-based Safety Protection. PROGNOST®-DataCenter offers a variety of benefits,
- Failure root cause analyses by diagnostic experts in case of an emergency shutdown (what, where, why)
- Perfectly accurate safety limits setting, based on long-term signal recordings
- Trend and status information are forwarded to the DCS via the PROGNOST®-DataCenter
- If recording function is activated, recorded data can be downloaded from the PROGNOST®-DataCenter and can be transferred to PROGNOST Customer Support. This data allows a root cause analysis with reports performed by the PROGNOST Customer Support
