PMWS2: Hands-On Workshop: Online Condition Monitoring and Its Challenges!

Christer Larsson, Academy Trainer, SPM Instrument


The workshop will be a practical hands-on demonstration of how to use a state of the art on-line system to monitor a challenging application. During the workshop we will discuss different measuring techniques and how to optimize the settings for bearing and gear fault detection covering the whole RPM range – from ultra-low to high speed applications. The measurement data will be analyzed using different advanced built in tools in our software, and the results will be discussed.
Finally, the results will be shared through a Rest API interface very suitable for Indstry 4.0 integration.

This is a great opportunity to learn and share experience in the field of on-line condition monitoring, and learn more about HD Technology!
