The Acoustic Machinery Monitor (AMM) from Intonix provides early warning of potential equipment or process problems by recognizing changes in the amplitude or frequency of the characteristic sound. Monitoring 96 frequency bands, this easy-to-install, low-cost unit features warning and danger alarms that have adjustable sensitivity and response time. These alarms can either alert the operator to a problem or shut down equipment directly for more extreme changes. The AMM is designed for stand-alone operation or to integrate with supervisory control and data acquisition systems. Applications include rotating machinery, such as motors, generators, compressors, fans, pumps, turbines, engines and gearboxes, and non-rotating machinery, including absorption chillers, boilers, electrical transformers and flow processes. The system can detect escaping fluids, and also can detect intrusions and disturbances.
