Provibtech PCM360-M Plant Condition Management System


ProvibTech’s PCM360-M is a mobile plant condition management system that integrates data collecting, processing and analyzing into one system. It is mainly used to provide a short-term fault diagnosis and analysis for experts. The system is able to work with any ProvibTech and third-party transducers to collect static, dynamic and transient data. Based on its multi-plant management mode, technicians can perform data management on various plants independently. PCM360-M is developed based on the principle “user oriented”.

With its single user management and user-friendly interface, user could master the main functions of the software with less training. And with multiple analysis tools of the system, technicians and engineers can analyze the critical machinery running status and make an effective total solution for machine maintenance and protection.

Features of PCM360-M

  • Support two signal interfaces: continuous vibration signal from transducers and buffer output from our or third-party monitors.
  •  Up to 12,800 lines of spectrum resolution.
  •  Up to 32 plants and 3200 measurement points couldbe monitored in one PCM360-M system.
  •  Build on Microsoft® SQL Server database to assurebetter data management.
  •  Maintain and manage plants independently. Andperform plants management just by one-key clicking.
  •  Display the specific status data on Display module.
  •  Attach notes to dynamic and transient samples.
  •  Set status for machine train and sample.
  •  Multiple trigger modes: alarm trigger, band alarmtrigger, time trigger, speed trigger, and manuallytrigger.
  •  Multiple real-time plots: waveform, waveform with DCCoupling, spectrum, shaft XY vibration, shaft XY vibration with DC Coupling, trend, shaft centerline, bode, polar, bar graph, shaft mode shape, etc.
  •  Event list: Record alarm events of the plant.
  •  Status list: Display real-time value and alarmset-points in list format.
  •  Magnify, restore, auto full scale and keyboardnavigation functions make plots analysis more flexible.

Advantages of the PCM360-M

  • The mobile and intelligent computer makes work easier and more convenient.
  •  Integrate plant condition monitoring and process data into one database.
  •  Automatically build integrative database of machine train’s status by creating records about trend of machine trains running status during long-term running time.
  •  User-friendly system with integrated layout: Software modules works in one unified user interface; designed for customer easy configuration, and data analysis; significantly decreases the learning and training time and cost with the user-friendly interface.
  •  Advanced post-processing of transient data minimizes data loss and maximizes analysis capability.
  •  Simultaneous high speed data acquisition on all channels.
  •  Support two classes of sampling frequency: 250 KHz and 1 MHz, which makes system accurately collect high frequency signal in the field.
  •  Ideal for working with turbines, pumps, blowers, motors, and compressors. Can be utilized on refinery, petroleum, steel, fossil power, hydro power, cement, transportation, etc.
  •  Assist plant managers to take maintenance decision.

Applications for the PCM360-M

1.Connection Direct To Sensors

Directly connect to sensors to obtain continuous analog signal without any monitors.
In this case, PCM-GP-M is required, and each PCM-GP-M can hold 16 channels (including phase reference channels).

2.Connection to PT2060 Rack

The PCM360-M directly interfaces with the PT2060 Rack via PT2060/80 signal IO module. Each PT2060 can hold a maximum of 48 channels (with condition monitoring modules).

The 4th slot from the right output dynamic signal of channel 1 to 24. The 3rd output channel 25 to 48. On each of the PT2060/80-BK modules, there are two multi-pin connectors, the top connector output data of channel 1 to 12 (25 to 36) with dual phase references. The bottom connector output data of channel 13 to 24 (37 to 48) with dual phase references. PCM360-M and PT2060 Rack could be integrated into a complete system to provide a better protection and data acquisition features.

3.Connection to Buffer Output

Support Buffer interface: to obtain continuous analog signal from Buffer output of monitors.
In this case, PCM-GP-M is required. System with one DAQ Card provides 16 Buffer inputs (require one PCM-GP-M); while system with two DAQ Cards provides 32 Buffer inputs (require two PCM-GP-Ms).
