Permanent WATCHMAN Online Systems

Online Monitoring to Meet Your Needs
Remote testing and expert vibration diagnostics designed for persistent, automated machine health monitoring.

A WATCHMAN Online Systems is an independent, modular, powerfully networked  system that remotely monitors, maintains, and automatically reports the health of your plant machinery. This methodology is based on simplicity, robustness, connectivity and diagnostic intelligence. 

Whether a standalone installation, paired with portable data collection processes, or part of a fully outsourced WATCHMAN Services program, WATCHMAN Online Systems can deliver critical machine condition based monitoring through a 360-degree approach dedicated to your assets.

Take advantage of low system and installation costs

Eliminate high sensor and cabling costs with the WATCHMAN Online System’s modular design. Now you can push the power out to the plant floor by integrating plant systems through Ethernet or wireless Ethernet (IEEE 802.11 WiFi). WATCHMAN Online Systems installation feature is  an easy, inexpensive alternative to high sensor and cable installation costs associated with traditional online systems.

Permanently installed vibration data acquisition devices are installed close to machines of interest and communicates to the WATCHMAN Online System Server through a standard network infrastructure. Any combination of these devices can be configured throughout the enterprise to meet your requirements.
  • The SPRITE i800 is a wireless or wired network device which can acquire eight simultaneous channels of vibration data (banks of 3) plus eight additional multiplexed DC signals for process parameters.

Don’t settle for false alarms

WATCHMAN Online Systems are powered by ExpertALERT, our automated diagnostic software, provides critical machinery health information instead of just vibration data by rapidly screening vibration measurements and applying over 6,000 unique rules to identify over 1250 individual faults in a wide variety of machine types. In the WATCHMAN Online System, where there is a persistent stream of vibration data, it is important to have a software tool that is capable of scrubbing through these readings to find exact fault trends with ample warning to order the correct parts and plan the downtime.
