Machinery protection with algorithm options

Published on: 

Machine monitoring specialists Sensonics have introduced measurement algorithm options for its Sentry G3 machinery protection monitor, which operates as a turbine supervisory system. The Sentry G3 system provides machine protection to the API670 standard, and a range of programmable algorithms in each module to enable plant engineers to identify abnormal conditions and better manage the dynamic behaviour of their rotating plant.

It consists of one module type for all measurements to improve flexibility and minimize spares holding. Algorithms can be loaded and configured in any channel position to provide the required measurement regime. The recent focus has been to provide gas turbine (GT) specific measurements, such as first order vibration tracking and dynamic pressure which are both requirements recommended by GT manufacturers .In addition, the speed algorithm has also been optimized to accept a wider range of speed probes.
