THE Entek XM series from Rockwell Automation represents a new approach to machine monitoring and protection over traditional rack-based systems.
Suitable for the protection of high speed and critical-production machinery, the XM series is designed to monitor and protect machinery against high vibration and the resultant damage caused by excessive vibration.
The XM series is a family of DIN-rail mounted measurement, relay and communications modules that may be applied as a stand-alone system, or integrated directly with existing control systems using DeviceNet open standard communications to provide diagnostic information to key individuals within an organisation.
The XM series' modular design ensures it is completely scalable. Its discrete DIN-rail mounted modules can be easily added to existing panels, or installed close to the measurement location, significantly reducing wiring costs and complexity of installation.
The Remove/Insert Under Power (RIUP) feature enables XM modules to be quickly and easily replaced without shutdown.
The modules can also interface with condition monitoring software, such as Entek Emonitor Odyssey/Enshare. This allows all online and surveillance data to be centrally stored and shared across Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) systems.
