The new CSI 9360 vibration and position transmitter from Emerson Process Management offers an economical solution for extending basic protection to compressor, pump and fan assets. By extending protection to more assets, the transmitter helps users prevent unscheduled downtime.
Developed using OEM-supplied specifications, the transmitter detects emerging sleeve bearing issues by capturing vibration or position data and translating it into a 4-20mA signal for monitoring. This advanced warning allows customers to shut down these assets before significant equipment damage occurs or production is impacted, avoiding the consequences of downtime.
The highly versatile CSI 9360 saves money for users by reducing the need for multiple types of transmitters. The new transmitters can be field-configured for three radial vibration ranges or position with invertible position signal, selectable sensor loop response times and optional sensor fault lock out times. While most transmitters standardise on 5mm sensors, the CSI 9360 supports multiple eddy current sensor sizes.
Key features and benefits of the CSI 9360 position and vibration transmitters include precise, accurate information enabling critical operational decision-making; flexible options for accessing data, allowing timely, corrective action; buffered output accessible through an SMB connection by a portable analyser for data collection and analysis; and screw terminal buffered output connection allowing direct wiring to a monitoring system for detailed analysis or troubleshooting.
Installation is simple with the CSI 9360 loop powered using a standard DIN rail mounting clip or optional panel mount adaptor. The CSI 9360 has standard CSA and ATEX agency safety ratings (pending). Field changes are also simplified with users able to combine different sensors, extension cables and transmitters in the field and still maintain tight measurement tolerances (typically under 4%) without recalibration.
