A key component of reliable operations is the health of the rotating machinery within a process manufacturing or production process. Monitoring the vibration levels on this machinery is an important component in an effective reliability-centered maintenance program.
I mention this to take a moment to congratulate our team managing the CSI technology vibration analysis and predictive information products and services. They won Frost & Sullivan’s 2015 Global Portable Vibration Monitoring Product Innovation Award.
…not only lighter and sleeker in design than its predecessors, but it has also made route data collection considerably more efficient. The full-color touchscreen has transformed data visualization irrespective of the lighting conditions, while the lithium-ion battery has ensured reliable and uninterrupted functioning of the device. This battery has also eliminated the need to charge the vibration analyzer more than once during a shift.
In awarding this product for innovation, they conclude:
