Available from Metromatics , the recently announced GE Intelligent Proficy® Smart Signal® Shield 4.0 will help large equipment operators detect equipment problems early and avoid surprise equipment failure, therefore increasing productivity, while minimising costs.
This advanced solution provides early warning of impending problems, diagnostic guidance, and prioritised actionable intelligence. With shield 4.0, users can move from reactive to proactive maintenance by working on the equipment that needs to be fixed, and on the most critical problems first. They can focus their efforts on action, not analysis - increasing reliability, availability, efficiency, and compliance.
Shield 4.0 software's diagnostic algorithms combine observations on multiple individual sensors to pinpoint failure effects. The solution uniquely models all data on all critical rotating and non rotating equipment.
GE was able to identify fault patterns, in context of operating behaviour, that are critical to the Power and Oil and Gas industries, and incorporate them into software. This innovative solution monitors equipment automatically, continuously, and relentlessly, 24 hours/day, enabling users to take necessary mitigation to organise maintenance projects with confidence.
Key benefits of the GE Intelligent Proficy® Smart Signal® Shield 4.0 software includes:
- A suite of applications that enable s quick design and implementation
- Allows for clear access to diagnostics and rules
- Users will be able to fully understand and adjust the software based on their own expertise
