The new Allen-Bradley Entek Enpac 2500 portable condition monitoring data collector and analyser provides cost-effective monitoring and analysis of rotating equipment, according to Rockwell Automation .
The Enpac 2500 allows operators to identify and correct potential problems before they impact production and safety.
Based on the Windows CE operating platform, the unit combines lightweight, easy-to-use features with scalable functionality, including small, rugged, lightweight design; speeds up to 50% faster; intuitive icon-driven menu system; and easy-to-read 1/4 VGA colour display.
It also includes advanced functions such as two-plane balancing and two-channel functionality to make the instrument suitable for new and experienced analysts.
The Enpac 2500 is supported by Emonitor Enterprise software from Rockwell Automation, which the company says creates a powerful tool for effective condition monitoring.
The portable data collector uses Spike Energy and ESP technology for early bearing wear detection. It also includes an internal laser tachometer that allows users to take speed and phase measurements without additional equipment.
